He was a NAIA All-American in 2006 then was chosen by the St. Louis Cardinals in the 36th round of the 2006 amateur draft. He hit .190/.245/.246 as the third-string catcher for the State College Spikes that year. He was 10 for 26 with a double and a walk for the 2007 GCL Cardinals. In 2008, Thomas moved to the Philadelphia Phillies chain, appearing for the Williamsport Crosscutters (.235/.262/.314, 3 BB, 33 K in 108 PA as the backup to Travis d'Arnaud), Gateway Grizzlies (1 for 11) and Reading Phillies (0 for 3).
