Athletics' Cody Thomas: Optioned to Triple-A

Thomas (Achilles) was optioned to Triple-A Las Vegas on Sunday, Martin Gallegos of MLB.com reports. Thomas underwent offseason Achilles surgery and isn't available for camp, and he should report to the Triple-A level when healthy. He appeared in 59 games for Las Vegas last year and slashed .289/.363/.665 with 18 home runs, 52 RBI and 46 runs. If the 27-year-old performs well once he's healthy, it wouldn't be surprising to see him make his major-league debut at some point in 2022.

The minor league season is nearly halfway through, and the 2021 MLB draft begins today, so it’s time for us to check in with the Triple-A Las Vegas Aviators. Vegas is a hitter’s paradise, within a hitter’s league in the Triple-A West, so as expected the story lines all revolve around massive offense — the Aviators are scoring and allowing seven runs per game. That means some position player prospects are looking really good, and all the pitchers are posting ugly numbers, and it can be difficult to hash out which parts are real and which are desert mirages.
