Potential Prospect

An injury derailed Dan Thomas’ season, but the Cardinals scooped up the righthander from South Florida in the 44th round.Thomas pitched well early this season, including seven one-hit innings with eight punchouts against Manhattan with more than a dozen scouts in attendance to see him and Manhattan first baseman Matt Rizzotti. He went down with a shoulder injury shortly thereafter, and the injury was diagnosed as fraying in his right labrum. He had surgery in May.
