Thomas spent the better part of the past three seasons with the Braves' organization before the Dodgers acquired him in a late-May trade that sent Juan Uribe to Atlanta. Thomas was being stretched out as a starter in June with Oklahoma City, but he has been used as a reliever at the Major League level this season. The 28-year-old has posted a 4.14 ERA in 45 2/3 innings in the Minors this season.
