Cardinals' Lane Thomas: Heading to Triple-A
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Cardinals optioned Thomas to Triple-A Memphis on Tuesday.

Thomas will cede his spot on the active roster to Lars Nootbaar, who could get a look as a strong-side platoon option in the outfield alongside regulars Tyler O'Neill and Dylan Carlson while Harrison Bader (ribs) remains on the shelf. Though Bader has been out of commission since May 24, Thomas was unable to take advantage of the available playing time in the outfield. The Cardinals had been limiting him to a reserve role of late after he posted a measly .384 OPS through his 58 plate appearances with the big club on the season.

Cardinals' Lane Thomas: Breaks long slump Tuesday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Thomas went 1-for-3 in a win over the Marlins on Tuesday after going hitless over 14 plate appearances across his previous 10 games.

The struggling outfielder logged his first start since May 30, which also marked the start of his multi-game slump. Thomas' inclusion in the lineup Tuesday was part of the domino effect of Tommy Edman's late scratch due to side tightness, as the former is otherwise finding playing time scarce at the moment.

Cardinals' Lane Thomas: Remains out of lineup
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Thomas isn't starting Saturday's game against the Reds, Jeff Jones of the Belleville News-Democrat reports.

Thomas will be on the bench for a sixth straight contest, but he should be available off the bench. Tommy Edman will shift to right field while Matt Carpenter starts at the keystone.

Cardinals' Lane Thomas: Sitting again Friday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Thomas is not in the starting lineup Friday against the Reds.

Friday will mark the fifth consecutive game that Thomas is not included in the starting nine. Tommy Edman will shift to right field with Matt Carpenter starting at second base.

by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Thomas isn't starting Thursday against the Reds, Jeff Jones of the Belleville News-Democrat reports.

Thomas will be out of the lineup for a fourth straight game, but he went 0-for-2 with a strikeout off the bench Wednesday. Dylan Carlson will shift to center field while Jose Rondon starts in right.

Cardinals' Lane Thomas: Loses hold of regular role
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Thomas is out of the lineup for Wednesday's game against the Dodgers, Jeff Jones of the Belleville News-Democrat reports.

On the bench for the third straight game, Thomas no longer appears to have a hold on a regular starting role in the outfield. Instead, look for the right-handed-hitting Thomas to fill the short side of a platoon with Justin Williams, leaving Dylan Carlson and Tyler O'Neill to play every day in the other two outfield spots.

Cardinals' Lane Thomas: Heads to bench
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Thomas is out of the lineup for Monday's game against the Dodgers, Zachary Silver of MLB.com reports.

Thomas started seven of the Cardinals' last nine games, but the Cardinals may not be incentivized to find much more playing time for him. After another hitless showing in Sunday's 9-2 loss to the Diamondbacks, Thomas is slashing .118/.286/.147 in 42 plate appearances on the season.

Cardinals' Lane Thomas: Stuck in extended skid
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Thomas, who went 0-for-2 with two walks and a run in a win over the Diamondbacks on Friday, is hitting just .048 with a 33.3 percent strikeout rate over the 13 games he's appeared in since being recalled from Triple-A Memphis on May 6.

Thomas has seen a string of recent starts, but he has failed to capitalize on them, with his current skid pulling his season slash line down to an unacceptable .100/.270/.100 across 37 plate appearances. The 25-year-old got his MLB career off to a promising start in 2019 with a .316//409/.684 line across 44 plate appearances, but he's hit just .106 (7-for-66) with with two doubles, a home run and three RBI in parts of two seasons since then.

Cardinals' Lane Thomas: Not starting Thursday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Thomas isn't starting Thursday against the Diamondbacks, Jeff Jones of the Belleville News-Democrat reports.

Thomas had started each of the last five games and went 1-for-16 with an RBI, two walks, a stolen base and seven strikeouts during that time. Dylan Carlson will shift to center field while Justin Williams starts in right.

Cardinals' Lane Thomas: Gets fifth straight start
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Thomas will start in right field and bat seventh Wednesday against the White Sox, Katie Woo of The Athletic reports.

The Cardinals will include Thomas in the starting nine for the fifth game in a row while the team remains short on healthy outfielders with Harrison Bader (rib) joining Tyler O'Neill (finger) on the injured list. Thomas went 1-for-12 in the previous four games and owns a weak .401 OPS in 29 plate appearances on the season, rendering him a rather unappealing fantasy option outside of NL-only leagues.

Cardinals' Lane Thomas: Recalled by Cardinals
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Thomas was recalled by the Cardinals on Thursday.

Thomas spent three weeks at the Cardinals' alternate training site but will return to the major-league roster. He should serve mainly as a depth option in the outfield after he went 2-for-9 with a walk and three strikeouts in his first stint with the big-league club this year. Right-hander Johan Oviedo was sent down in a corresponding move.

Cardinals' Lane Thomas: Sent down by Cardinals
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Thomas was optioned to the Cardinals' alternate training site Thursday.

Thomas joined the major-league club Sunday but went 2-for-9 with a walk and three strikeouts in four games. He'll now attempt to work things out at the team's alternate camp after Scott Hurst was recalled by St. Louis in a corresponding move.

Cardinals' Lane Thomas: Not in Monday's lineup
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Thomas isn't starting Monday's game against the Nationals, Jeff Jones of the Belleville News-Democrat reports.

Thomas went 1-for-3 with a walk and one strikeout in his season debut Sunday. Dylan Carlson will take over in center field for Monday's series opener while Matt Carpenter enters the lineup at second base.

Cardinals' Lane Thomas: Promoted and starting Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Thomas was recalled from the alternate training site Sunday , and he is starting in center field and batting eighth in the series finale versus the Brewers, Katie Woo of The Athletic reports.

The 25-year-old failed to make the Opening Day roster but will join the Cardinals for his season debut in the second weekend of the season. Thomas could have the chance to earn regular playing time with Tyler O'Neill (groin) joining Harrison Bader (forearm) on the injured list.

March 28, 2021 05:28 PM
Cardinals' Lane Thomas: Sent to minors
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Thomas was optioned to minor-league camp Sunday.

Thomas was competing for a depth role in the outfield during camp but was unable to secure an Opening Day roster spot after hitting .212 with five runs and five RBI in 17 spring games. With Harrison Bader (forearm) sidelined to begin the regular season, Dylan Carlson should serve as the center fielder while Tyler O'Neill, Justin Williams and Austin Dean also see time in the outfield for the Cardinals.

Cardinals' Lane Thomas: Off to hot start at plate
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

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 RBI 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.

Cardinals' Lane Thomas: Dropped from active roster
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Cardinals optioned Thomas to their alternate training site Wednesday, Anne Rogers of MLB.com reports.

St. Louis will swap Thomas from the active roster for infielder Max Schrock, who was called up ahead of Wednesday's doubleheader with Milwaukee. Thomas filled a part-time role out of the Cardinals outfield following his Aug. 31 reinstatement from the COVID-19 injured list, going 4-for-33 with a home run while appearing in 14 games.

Cardinals' Lane Thomas: Connects on first 2020 homer
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Thomas went 1-for-3 with a two-run home run during a 12-2 win over the Tigers in the first game of Thursday's doubleheader.

His blast off Joe Jimenez put the capper on a seven-run third inning that blew the game open, and gave Thomas his first homer of the year. Through nine games since rejoining the Cards' roster, he's now gone 4-for-23 (.174).

Cardinals' Lane Thomas: Out after three straight starts
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Thomas is out of the lineup for Monday's game against the Cubs, Jeff Jones of the Belleville News-Democrat reports.

Thomas had started three straight contests and five of the last six games, but he'll take a seat Monday with the Cardinals rolling out an outfield of Tommy Edman, Harrison Bader and Tyler O'Neill. Bader and O'Neill are seemingly most at risk of losing out on playing time, but top prospect Dylan Carlson likely ranks ahead of Thomas in the pecking order for regular run in the St. Louis outfield. Thomas hasn't helped his case by going a modest 3-for-18 at the plate since being reinstated from the COVID-19 injured list in late August.

Cardinals' Lane Thomas: Doubles in first start back
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Thomas went 1-for-5 with a double, a walk and a run in a win over the Reds on Tuesday.

Thomas was activated from the COVID-19 injured list Monday, and he walked during one plate appearance as a defensive replacement in that night's victory over Cincinnati. Tuesday therefore marked Thomas' first start since July 26, and although the young outfielder wasn't able to contribute much to the Cardinals' 16-run outburst, his two-bagger marked his first extra-base hit of the campaign.
