Lane Thomas took Joe Jimenez deep in the third inning for a two-run home run as the Cardinals thrashed the Tigers 12-2 in Game One on Thursday. Thomas finished the game 1-3 with two RBI, one run scored and two strike outs. The Cardinals moved to 19-17 after the victory.
Thomas is slashing .148/.258/.333 in 27 at-bats for the Cardinals this season. He is playing part-time and hitting in the bottom third of the line-up when he does play. If he were to ever get regular playing time he would be a sneaky power-speed play for fantasy owners in deep, 15-team+, leagues. Owners in standard 12-team redraft leagues can leave him on the waiver wire.
