Angels' Dillon Thomas: Returns to Triple-A
Thomas was optioned to Triple-A Salt Lake on Wednesday.
Thomas was promoted by the Halos in late July and went 1-for-9 with a walk and five strikeouts in seven games. Mickey Moniak, who was acquired from the Phillies on Tuesday, was added to the active roster in a corresponding move and will round out the outfield group.... See More ... See Less

After he rejoined the organization at the end of June, Thomas will make his way to Atlanta ahead of the Angels' first series of the second half.

David MacKinnon was optioned to Salt Lake on Friday in a corresponding move.... See More ... See Less
Angels' Dillon Thomas: Rejoins Halos organization
The Angels claimed Thomas off waivers from the Astros on Monday and optioned him to Triple-A Salt Lake.
Thomas will begin his second stint of the season in the Angels organization after he had been claimed off waivers by Houston on June 15 before being cast off the 40-man roster less than two weeks later. Aside from a one-game cameo with the Angels earlier this month, Thomas has otherwise spent the entire campaign at the Triple-A level. Between stops at Salt Lake and the Astros' affiliate in Sugar Land, the 29-year-old outfielder has slashed .293/.395/.492 with nine home runs and three stolen bases across 228 plate appearances....

Astros' Dillon Thomas: Designated for assignment
Thomas was designated for assignment by the Astros on Friday, Brian McTaggart of MLB.com reports.
Thomas appeared in one game for the Angels in mid-June before being designated for assignment and claimed by the Astros, but he didn't last long with his new team before being placed on waivers again. Whether or not there will be any interest this time around in a 29-year-old with just five career MLB games under his belt remains to be seen.... See More ... See Less
Astros' Dillon Thomas: Catches on with Astros
The Astros claimed Thomas off waivers from the Angels on Wednesday.
Houston transferred outfielder Jake Meyers (shoulder) from the 10-day injured list to the 60-day IL to clear room on the 40-man roster for Thomas, who appeared in one big-league game for the Angels earlier this month before being designated for assignment. Though Thomas is expected to report to Triple-A Sugar Land initially, he could eventually get a look with the Astros in center field, which has been a revolving door of late. All of Chas McCormick, Jose Siri and Mauricio Dubon have made two starts in center apiece over the Astros' previous six games, with none having separated himself from the others in the competition for the everyday gig....

Angels' Dillon Thomas: Designated for assignment
Thomas was designated for assignment by the Angels on Saturday.
Thomas has had a busy four days. His contract was selected Wednesday and he made his season debut Thursday, but he was optioned on Friday and now designated for assignment Saturday. Given that he's a 29-year-old with just five big-league games under his belt, he's likely to pass through waivers unclaimed.... See More ... See Less
Angels' Dillon Thomas: Optioned to Triple-A
Thomas was optioned to Triple-A Salt Lake on Friday.
Thomas went 0-for-2 with a run, a walk and a strikeout in his Angels debut Thursday but will head back to the minors two days after his contract was selected. He's slashing .295/.398/.489 with eight homers, 39 RBI, 36 runs and three stolen bases over 48 games in Salt Lake this year.... See More ... See Less
Angels' Dillon Thomas: Contract selected
Thomas had his contract selected by the Angels on Wednesday.
The 29-year-old made his MLB debut over four games for the Mariners last year, and he'll now receive a look with the Angels. Thomas has an .887 OPS over 48 games with Triple-A Salt Lake this season, and he'll provide outfield depth for the Halos while Mike Trout manages a groin injury.... See More ... See Less
Angels' Dillon Thomas: Sent to minors camp
The Angels reassigned Thomas to minor-league camp Monday.
Thomas reached the big leagues for the first time in his age-28 season in 2021, logging nine plate appearances with Seattle. After reaching free agency in the offseason, Thomas linked up with the Angels on a minor-league deal and was given the chance to compete for a spot on the Opening Day roster, but he'll end up falling short in that bid. Expect him to open the campaign in a near-everyday role in the outfield at Triple-A Salt Lake.... See More ... See Less
Angels' Dillon Thomas: Gets camp invite from Angels
Thomas signed with the Angels as a non-roster invitee Tuesday, Robert Murray of FanSided.com reports.
Thomas made his major-league debut in his age-28 season this year with the Mariners, going 1-for-9 with seven strikeouts. His 109 wRC+ at the Triple-A level was decent but hardly suggests he's about to become a major-league regular, especially as it came with a high 29.6 percent strikeout rate.... See More ... See Less
Mariners' Dillon Thomas: Outrighted to Triple-A
Thomas was outrighted to Triple-A Tacoma on Thursday.
Thomas was removed from the 40-man roster Monday, but he'll remain in the organization after he went unclaimed on waivers. The 28-year-old has been at Triple-A Tacoma since July 22, and he's slashed .333/.395/.590 with two home runs, four doubles, 12 runs, four RBI and a stolen base in 10 games since then....

Mariners' Dillon Thomas: Designated for assignment
Thomas was designated for assignment by the Mariners on Monday, Ryan Divish of The Seattle Times reports.
The 28-year-old was sent to Triple-A Tacoma on July 21, and he'll be removed from the 40-man roster to make room for Jake Fraley (illness), who was reinstated from the COVID-19 injured list Monday. Thomas slashed .273/.379/.458 with nine homers, 46 RBI, 30 RBI and seven stolen bases in the minors to begin the year.... See More ... See Less
Mariners' Dillon Thomas: Optioned to Triple-A
Thomas was optioned to Triple-A Tacoma on Wednesday, Ryan Divish of The Seattle Times reports.
Thomas was recalled by the Mariners on Sunday, and he went 0-for-1 with a strikeout while appearing off the bench. He should see more consistent playing time in the minors, while right-hander Darren McCaughan's contract was selected in a corresponding move.... See More ... See Less
Mariners' Dillon Thomas: Recalled from minors
The Mariners recalled Thomas from Triple-A Tacoma on Sunday.
The 28-year-old will serve as outfield depth while Jake Fraley (illness), who was placed on the injured list in a corresponding move, misses time. Thomas has appeared in just two games for the Mariners this season, going 2-for-8 with a pair of RBI and six strikeouts. Since being optioned June 12, he's hit .196 with 35 strikeouts in 97 at-bats.... See More ... See Less
Mariners' Dillon Thomas: Optioned to Triple-A
Thomas was optioned to Triple-A Tacoma on Saturday.
It was a nice story when Thomas got called up earlier in the week, as he'd been on the minor-league grind for a full decade before getting his chance. There's typically a reason why players in his situation don't have much big-league experience, however, so it's no surprise to see him head back to the minors after going 1-for-8 with six strikeouts....

Mariners' Dillon Thomas: Summoned from minors
The Mariners selected Thomas' contract from Triple-A Tacoma ahead of Tuesday's game in Detroit.
Seattle designated Jacob Nottingham for assignment to create room on the 40-man roster and 26-man active roster for Thomas, who receives his first call-up to the big leagues. The 28-year-old outfielder earned the promotion to Seattle after submitting a .338/.459/.625 line with six home runs and four stolen bases across 98 plate appearances at Triple-A. He'll likely find himself behind Mitch Haniger, Taylor Trammell and Jake Fraley in the pecking order for playing time in the outfield, but Seattle could deploy Haniger at designated hitter if the team is serious about giving Thomas a look in an everyday role....

Mariners' Dillon Thomas: Getting first big-league call-up
The Mariners plan to call Thomas up from Triple-A Tacoma prior to Tuesday's game in Detroit, Robert Murray of FanSided.com reports.
A 28-year-old minor-league journeyman who was originally a fourth-round pick in the 2011 first-year player draft, Thomas will receive his first big-league call-up after getting off to a hot start to the season at Triple-A. Through 98 plate appearances, Thomas slashed .338/.459/.625 with six home runs and four stolen bases while striking out in 26.5 percent of his plate appearances. The Mariners presumably plan on having Thomas serve as a fourth outfielder for the time being behind projected regulars Mitch Haniger, Taylor Trammell and Jake Fraley.... See More ... See Less
Mariners' Dillon Thomas: Invited to spring training
Thomas signed a minor-league contract with the Mariners as a non-roster invitee Wednesday, Robert Murray of FanSided.com reports.
Thomas was invited to the Athletics' major-league camp in 2020 but failed to reach the big leagues during the abbreviated season. He'll get the chance to work with the major-league coaching staff once again in 2021 and should compete for a roster spot with the Mariners at some point during the regular season. The 28-year-old slashed a combined .251/.325/.404 with 19 home runs and 108 RBI over multiple stints at the Double-A level over the last few seasons, but he'll need to work on improving his strikeout rate going forward....
