Alek Thomas has hit everywhere he's gone, and he has only gotten better as time goes on. He is the total package. He'll hit for average and power, he'll get on base a ton, and he's a plus defender with good speed. He's a gifted athlete, and he should be arriving in Arizona in '22 https://t.co/DPwgFO5Sbg
Alek Thomas played for both Amarillo (AA) and Reno (AAA) this year and didn’t disappoint. He was the organization’s Minor League Player of the Year, named to MLB Pipeline’s 2021 Prospect Team of the Year (First Team), and participated in the 2021 SiriusXM All-Star Futures Game. https://t.co/gG0BqHWcvF

Alek Thomas, who finished the season with the Aces, is the Arizona Diamondbacks' Minor League Player of the Year. In 34 games in Reno, he slashed .369/.434/.658. Thomas was the only pro player with back-to-back four-hit games twice this year. https://t.co/c7jLZ69dRI
BREAKING: Alek Thomas named @Dbacks Minor League Player Of The Year.
Thomas set career-highs in 2021 with Reno and @SodPoodles: runs scored (86), hits (136), doubles (29), triples (12), home runs (18) and RBIs (59). https://t.co/nOTQtkLj59
Nice feature by @kirstenlizmoran on Aces outfielder Alek Thomas, who has 46 hits in his first 28 games in Reno. The 21-year-old is one of the minor league's top prospects, and he has a very specific date for when he'd like to reach the big leagues. https://t.co/C4zTKpLCUv
I really like Arizona’s Alek Thomas. I think scouting reports on him have been far too conservative. He’s so far been a prime example of elite hit to leading to better than expected power. .249 ISO this season for a guy scouts said “might hit 12-15 HR” https://t.co/XZTYbSt0Je
No matter what team they are on, I always look forward to seeing top prospects and it should be a treat to watch Alek Thomas and Geraldo Perdomo this week. Was bummed when the original schedule came out and Reno wasn't coming, but that all changed with the Final Stretch. https://t.co/uz4GnEvuA6
