Former Toronto Blue Jays prospect Eric Thames is destroying baseballs on an epic level. Drafted in the 7th round of the 2008 MLB Amateur Draft, he climbed the ladder on his way to the big league level at an accelerated rate, solidifying his ranking as Baseball America's #15 rated prospect in the PCL.
Once promoted to the Jays' MLB roster, he battled another highly touted Jays prospect in Travis Snider for one of the remaining outfield spots. Unfortunately, neither performed up to the lofty expectations set in front of them. Both were traded prior to the end of the 2012 season. Since, Thames has spent time in the Seattle Mariners and Houston Astros minor league organizations doing what he always does; produce.
