Clete Thomas has MRI on left knee
While Brennan Boesch tears it up in Detroit and Casper Wells gets a taste of the big leagues, Clete Thomas is battling a knee injury at Triple-A Toledo. He flew to Colorado on Tuesday for an MRI exam on his left knee and a visit with a doctor, according to the Toledo Blade. Thomas has been out for about a week.
Thomas missed much of the final couple weeks of Spring Training with a shoulder injury that hampered his chances of making the club. He hit .389 (14-for-36) this spring with a home run, three RBIs and 10 runs scored.
The Mud Hens haven’t filled Thomas’ roster spot just yet, presumably because Ryan Strieby is very close to a return from his wrist injury.
