  • Lane’s season started with Short-Season A-ball Vancouver, where he hit .225 in 43 games. Thomas promoted to Lansing on August 10th and was injured on August 24th, ending his season.

    Lane has the most upside of Toronto’s 2nd base prospects, but struggled with the ’15 assignment. His .295 wOBA and 80 wRC+ with Vancouver were slightly below league average, but he was playing against competition almost 2 year his senior.

    In his first year as a pro Lane split his time in the field playing 3rd and CF, but got converted to full-time 2nd baseman in 2015. In 45 games, he committed a whopping 20 errors, 4.80 RangeFactor, .915Fld% and turned 32 double plays. He looked uncomfortable at times, but showed good range and a strong arm. Reps will help iron everything out.

    Launching pad– Lane Thomas will get his first taste of full-season baseball as he will assume the role of Lugnuts starting 2nd baseman.
