As you can already tell from my Minor League Recaps, there is now an Alek Thomas segment every day. Thomas is off to a blistering start with the Diamondbacks AA affiliate in Amarillo, putting up an obscene .343/.434/.600 slash line with 6 doubles, 3 triples, 2 homers, and a 12/17 walk to strikeout ratio in his first 83 plate appearances. All in all, that puts his park adjusted weighted run creation (wRC+) value at 184. For Thomas, who turned 21 just days before the season started, that is absurd and worth taking a deeper dive into.
For comparison, here are some of the best performances at the AA level in recent memory with the players sorted by age.
