Cardinals' Lane Thomas: Off to hot start at plate

Thomas, who went 2-for-4 with a double and three RBI in a Grapefruit League loss to the Nationals on Friday, is hitting .500 (5-for-10) across four spring games. The promising outfielder also has a walk and a run on his spring resume, making it a stellar start overall in his bid for an Opening Day roster spot. Thomas couldn't follow up his impressive initial major-league showing in 2019 -- a .316/.409/.684 line with four home runs and 12 RRBI across 44 plate appearances -- with similar production in 2020, when he generated an anemic .111/.200/.250 slash over 40 plate appearances. Although fellow prospect Dylan Carlson is held in higher regard, Thomas also has plenty of upside and is certainly in the mix for a reserve outfield role.
