  • Alek Thomas Feeling More Hamstring Discomfort

    Headshot for Alek Thomas

    Arizona Diamondbacks outfielder Alek Thomas (hamstring) felt more discomfort in his left hamstring and is headed back to Phoenix to be re-evaluated, according to manager Torey Lovullo. Thomas was on a minor-league rehab assignment and was expected to rejoin the big-league club on Tuesday in Cincinnati, but that won't be the case now. The 24-year-old first injured his hamstring on March 31 and had only played in four rehab games with Triple-A Reno. There's a chance he'll now have to restart a rehab assignment. As long as Thomas continues to sit out, Corbin Carroll should handle center field in Arizona, with Jake McCarthy and Randal Grichuk seeing more time in the outfield as well. Thomas is a defense-first player, so he can remain on waiver wires in mixed fantasy leagues.

  • Alek Thomas Expected Back Soon

    Headshot for Alek Thomas

    Arizona Diamondbacks manager Torey Lovullo said that outfielder Alek Thomas (hamstring) is expected to come off the injured list and be back with the team at the start of the team's road trip to Cincinnati against the Reds that starts on Tuesday. Thomas is serving as the designated hitter on a minor-league rehab assignment for Triple-A Reno on Friday, so as long as he doesn't have a setback with his strained left hamstring over the weekend, he'll be back with the Snakes next week. The 24-year-old is more valuable to Arizona on defense in center field than he's been with his bat, as he's hit just .230/.273/.362 with 18 home runs, 82 RBI and 13 stolen bases in 242 games at the big-league level since debuting in 2022. When Thomas returns, it will mean less playing time for the likes of Pavin Smith and Jake McCarthy.

  • Alek Thomas Doing Everything But Running Full Speed

    Headshot for Alek Thomas

    Arizona Diamondbacks outfielder Alek Thomas (hamstring) started baserunning activities on April 24, with manager Torey Lovullo saying that Thomas is doing everything except running full speed. The skipper doesn't have a target date for Thomas' return, but he said Thomas is progressing well. The 24-year-old strained his left hamstring when he grounded into a double play on March 31 against the Colorado Rockies and underwent an MRI exam on April 1 that showed a strain that was greater than a Grade 1 strain. It sounds like he's getting close to being able to go on a minor-league rehab assignment. Until Thomas is able to return, Corbin Carroll will continue to operate as the team's center fielder, giving Jake McCarthy and Randal Grichuk more reps in the outfield. Thomas has still yet to show much offensively for fantasy managers, but he's a stud on defense when healthy.

  • Alek Thomas Progressing Well

    Headshot for Alek Thomas

    Arizona Diamondbacks outfielder Alek Thomas (hamstring) recently told reporters that he is progressing well from his injury. The 23-year-old was placed on the injured list roughly two weeks ago due to a hamstring injury. Thomas has been taking at-bats in extended spring training and it appears to be going well. The D-Backs haven't given a timetable on Thomas lately, so fantasy managers will have to be patient. In the meantime, Jake McCarthy will continue seeing increased time in the outfield.

    Headshot for Jorge Barrosa

    The Diamondbacks announced that outfielder Alek Thomas has been placed on the 10-day injured list due to a strained left hamstring. Outfielder Jorge Barrosa was recalled in a corresponding move and will be making his major league debut as soon as he gets into a game. Thomas, who turns 24 later this month, left last...

  • Diamondbacks Place Alek Thomas On Injured List

    Headshot for Alek Thomas

    The Arizona Diamondbacks placed outfielder Alek Thomas (left) on the 10-day injured list on Monday with a strained left hamstring and recalled outfielder Jorge Barrosa up from the minor leagues in a corresponding move. Thomas injured his hamstring on Sunday against the Colorado Rockies and will now be forced to miss at least the next 10 days. Jake McCarthy is starting in right field and batting eight in the lineup on Monday against the New York Yankees and right-hander Luis Gil, and he should benefit from most of the extra playing time in Arizona's outfield for however long Thomas is sidelined. Corbin Carroll has shifted over to replace Thomas in center field. Thomas went 3-for-14 (.214) with a homer and four RBI in the first four games of the year before landing on the IL.

  • Alek Thomas Pulled From Sunday's Game

    Headshot for Alek Thomas

    Arizona Diamondbacks outfielder Alek Thomas (hamstring) was forced to leave early during Sunday's game against the Colorado Rockies. Thomas suffered a left hamstring injury while running out a double in the first inning. He remained in the game for a few innings before exiting due to left hamstring tightness. It's uncertain how long he's going to be sidelined. The D-Backs will likely have Thomas undergo further testing before deciding on what to do. If Thomas misses time, Jake McCarthy and Joc Pederson could see more playing time in the outfield.

  • Alek Thomas Retools His Swing

    Headshot for Alek Thomas

    Arizona Diamondbacks outfielder Alek Thomas came to spring training this year with a retooled swing. In his two years in the big leagues, Thomas has been a below-average hitter, and his biggest problem has been loading his weight awkwardly over the outside of his back foot. From a closed position, he had to pull his upper body awkwardly towards first base to reach inside pitches. Thomas and his new hitting coach worked this offseason to create separation in his load and also to give him more balance to stay under control at the plate. In his two major-league seasons, Thomas hasn't hit a ball harder than 111.3 mph, but in an at-bat before spring training against a minor-league pitcher, he hit one 116 mph. The 23-year-old former top prospect is already a strong defender, but cleaning up his hitting mechanics could take him to the next level in 2024 as an all-around player in Arizona.

  • Eugenio Suarez, Alek Thomas Return To The Lineup

    Headshot for Eugenio Suarez

    Arizona Diamondbacks third baseman Eugenio Suarez (side) and outfielder Alek Thomas (wrist) are both back in the team's Cactus League lineup on Tuesday against the San Diego Padres. Suarez is at third base and is batting fifth, while Thomas is in the seven-hole and is playing center field. The 32-year-old Suarez is the more attractive fantasy commodity because of his right-handed power. The Venezuelan slugger is a pretty consistent performer from a power perspective and should rebound from his 22-homer campaign in 2023 in a better hitting environment in Arizona, but he's also led the league in strikeouts in three of the last five seasons. Thomas was optioned to the minors at one point last year and is a defense-first player for the D-backs.
