Drafted in the 7th round (225th overall) by the Chicago Cubs in 2017 (signed for $175,500)
Thomas had two disastrous starts--including a 10-run, no-outs start against San Diego State in the Mountain West Conference tournament--that ran his ERA up to 4.86, after a 2.16 mark as a sophomore. (The Mountain West Conference ERA was a cumulative 6.02.) The slight-bodied 6-foot-1, 185-pounder was consistently better in 2016, earning a spot on USA Baseball's Collegiate National Team. Thomas competes and has a changeup that at times earns 70 grades, though that was not the case frequently this year. He didn't command his 87-90 mph fastball this spring, with his walk rate jumped from 1.38 per nine to 5.16 this season. Thomas has a fringy to below-average breaking ball, and he wasn't holding his velocity over the course of the season. His track record still could get him drafted in the first six rounds.
