I doubt we'd see him starting very often, but he could be a real nice bat off the bench late in games.

I definitely can see him pinch hit late in a game, drawing a walk, then Avery comes in to pinch run.


I'd agree that they ease him back in as a pinch-hitter, but if he looks good after a couple weeks, I could definitely see them starting him at DH (if, God help us) we make the playoffs.

Certainly could use his OBP skills with Nick out.

Patton could rejoin the team in Seattle, Boston at the latest. Thome a few days behind that. #orioles

Big doubles on back-to-back days in Boston. Could be a very helpful bat the rest of the way, especially with Betemit's injury.

Thome had the game-tying home run in tonight's slugfest. It would be great if he could catch a little hot streak for the final 6 games.
