Profile: On YouTube, there's a highlight video containing all 47 of Eric Thames' 2015 KBO home runs. The spectacle may be our best glimpse into who he might be in his return to the majors. In the video, Thames crushes grooved, mediocre fastballs deep into the night. His left-handed swing is quick, powerful, and beautiful. It's worth noting that home run swings tend to be the prettiest a player has to offer. Rather than use real scouting (I didn't watch him play in Korea, did you?), let's analyze these home runs. Thames' swing path appears ideal. He should generate consistent loft, power, and contact. He also shows an ability to pound fly balls to the opposite field. What we don't get a good sense of is his ability to hit well-located pitches, high-velocity fastballs, or breaking balls. Any or all of those could be his kryptonite. If Thames doesn't have a glaring weakness, his friendly home park and swing could produce a 40-home run season. Signing Thames was an excellent gamble for the rebuilding Brewers. (Brad Johnson)

The Quick Opinion: Thames' return to the majors figures to be one of the biggest spring training stories. Will he be overmatched? Will he continue his KBO-mashing ways? Will he fall somewhere between those two scenarios? Yes, probably that last one.
