It was Thomas' first long ball in 25 games, and he entered Wednesday's game hitting only .244 with eight RBI and seven runs scored in that span. Thomas has a .318 wOBA and a .257/.314/.414 line across 271 plate appearances on the campaign.

  • Diamondbacks' Alek Thomas: Makes second-half debut

    Thomas went 3-for-4 with a double, two RBI and a run scored in Saturday's 7-2 win over the Nationals.

    Thomas made his second-half debut after being held out Friday, the team's first game back from the All-Star break. Over 63 games, the rookie maintains a .259/.309/.417 line, hovering around his expected rates. Thomas is on the wrong end of several Statcast batting metrics, but he's going to be a near-everyday player and given an opportunity to develop the rest of the season.

He hadn't posted a multi-hit effort since July 1, and he's now batting .237 (9-for-38) this month. The rookie outfielder owns a .250/.305/.408 slash line with seven home runs, 22 RBI, 28 runs scored, four stolen bases and eight doubles through 213 plate appearances.

  • Diamondbacks' Alek Thomas: Homer, triple in win

    Thomas went 2-for-5 with a home run, a triple, three RBI and two runs scored in Friday's 9-3 win over the Rockies.

    Thomas entered Friday having gone 1-for-16 across his previous five games. He put an end to that skid with an RBI triple in the first inning, and he added a two-run blast in the seventh to pad Arizona's lead. The three-bagger was the first of his major-league career. The rookie outfielder is now slashing .258/.315/.442 with seven homers, 19 RBI, 26 runs scored and four stolen bases through 178 plate appearances. Thomas had a 12-game hitting streak in June, so he's found some success at the plate early in his career, and he'll look to get back on track in July.

  • Diamondbacks' Alek Thomas: Bats second against righty

    Thomas went 0-for-4 as the second batter in Friday's 5-1 loss to the Tigers.

    Arizona manager Torey Lovullo recently moved Thomas up in the order while Ketel Marte dealt with a hamstring injury, but it was unclear if the move would be a permanent one. In the two games Marte has played since the injury, Thomas was moved back down the order against a lefty and batted second against a righty.

  • Diamondbacks' Alek Thomas: Pops sixth homer

    Thomas went 2-for-5 with a solo home run and a second run scored in Wednesday's 10-4 loss to the Padres.

    One day after seeing his 12-game hitting streak end, the rookie snapped a 16-game homer drought by taking Mike Clevinger deep in the third inning to get Arizona on the board. Thomas is having a productive June overall, slashing .290/.359/.449 with three of his six home runs and all four of his stolen bases on the season.

  • Diamondbacks' Alek Thomas: Hitting streak at 12 games

    Thomas went 1-for-3 with a double, a walk and a stolen base in Monday's 4-1 loss to the Padres.

    The Diamondbacks mustered only five hits in the contest, and Thomas' was the only one to go for extra bases. He also recorded his fourth steal of the season, all of which have come during his current 12-game hitting streak. In that span, the rookie outfielder is 16-for-44 (.364) with two doubles, five RBI, nine runs scored and a 6:9 BB:K. Overall, he's up to a .276/.338/.440 slash line with five home runs, 14 RBI, 22 runs scored and seven doubles through 148 plate appearances. His strong hitting has solidified his spot in the lineup as Arizona's primary center fielder. Thomas, who has hit predominantly from the lower third of the batting order, has moved up the batting order temporarily since Ketel Marte (hamstring) is unavailable. Thomas has batted second in the last three games while Josh Rojas dropped from the second to third, Marte's normal spot.

  • Diamondbacks' Alek Thomas: Extends hit streak

    Thomas went 1-for-4 with a double, an RBI and a run scored in Wednesday's 7-4 win over the Reds.

    Thomas went the other way with a second-inning double that produced Arizona's first run. That's something the rookie's worked on, as opposing teams often deploy a shift against the lefty hitter. The extra-base knock extended his hit streak to eight games and was his first extra-base hit in his last 11 contests. Thomas is 11-for-29 with five RBI, five walks, three stolen bases and seven runs scored during the hit streak.

  • Diamondbacks' Alek Thomas: Adds steal Tuesday

    Thomas went 1-for-4 with a stolen base and a run scored in Tuesday's 5-3 extra-innings loss to the Reds.

    Thomas extended his hitting streak to seven games with an infield single in the 11th inning. He then stole second and scored on a wild pitch to tie the game once again. During the streak, the rookie outfielder is 10-for-25 (.400) with three steals, four RBI and six runs. He's logged a .270/.336/.443 slash line with five home runs, three steals, 13 RBI and 19 runs in 128 plate appearances overall. Thomas has taken command of a starting role in center field, pushing the versatile Daulton Varsho to right field with the return of catcher Carson Kelly from the injured list.

  • Diamondbacks' Alek Thomas: Notches two hits, steals base

    Thomas went 2-for-4 with a run and a stolen base Monday in a loss to Cincinnati.

    Thomas was one of only two Arizona players with multiple hits in the contest, and he scored the team's final run in the fourth inning. The rookie made another start in center field with Daulton Varsho -- who has played the position for much of the season -- moving over to right. That arrangement suggests that Arizona will be able to have both players in the lineup on a near-everyday basis despite the recent return of Carson Kelly, whose work behind the plate will cut into Varsho's playing time there.

  • Diamondbacks' Alek Thomas: Solid night in return to lineup

    Thomas went 1-for-3 with one RBI, one run scored and one steal in Wednesday's victory over the Reds.

    Thomas was benched Tuesday after going 0-for-9 across Arizona's previous three games, but he returned to the starting lineup Wednesday and bounced back with a solid performance. The rookie walked in the fourth and proceeded to steal second -- his first of the season. He also singled in the sixth and eventually came around to score on an RBI double from Jose Herrera. Thomas finished the night with an RBI walk in the ninth to extend the Diamondbacks lead to 7-0, and he also made a major impact defensively by robbing Joey Votto of a home run. Across 28 games this season, Thomas is slashing .237/.301/.452 with five homers and 10 RBI.

  • Diamondbacks' Alek Thomas: Beats shift twice

    Thomas went 2-for-4 with two home runs and three RBI in Friday's 8-6 win over the Pirates.

    The lefty-batting Thomas found a way to beat the shift. He pulled both homers over the right-center field fence, including the longest of five blasts hit by the Diamondbacks, a 432-footer that tied the game in the third inning. The rookie entered the contest on a 4-for-31 (.129) run, as opponents found success when deploying shifts against him, after Thomas opened his MLB career with a .963 OPS over 14 games.
