Just call the Brewers’ Eric Thames’ outfielder-first baseman the old comeback guy! Thames flopped on his first trip; to the majors. He made his exit and wound up a star outside of the country with the DC Dinos of the Korea Baseball organization.
Thames has been batting .306 with 13 round-trippers. The record should show that Thames is not the first player to fail on his first trip to the majors and comeback and become one of MLB’s best.
And beat continues!
