Lane Thomas might look familiar to fans who followed the San Antonio Missions last year in the Texas League.
Thomas hit 21 home runs in 100 games for Double-A Springfield in 2018. He also spent 32 games with the Triple-A Memphis Redbirds and hit seven more homers. He also finished the summer with 17 stolen bases.
Baseball America lists Thomas as the No. 7 prospect in the St. Louis Cardinals’ minor-league organization. He is a member of the Cardinals’ 40-man roster. Thomas was originally drafted out of high school (Knoxville, Tenn.) by the Toronto Blue Jays in 2014.
Thomas and the Redbirds are currently in San Antonio and conclude a three-games series with the Missions tonight at 7:05 at Wolff Stadium.
