Former UH pitcher Dylan Thomas is in a Sunshine state — geographically and emotionally — after signing a contract with the Minnesota Twins.
The signing took place this morning at the Twins’ training facility in Florida.
Thomas said he will receive a $100,000 signing bonus.
Thomas is expected to be assigned to the Elizabethon (Tenn.) Twins of the Appalachian League.
Thomas was the Twins’ 13th-round draft choice last week and 38th-round pick in 2018. After failing to reach an agreement last year, Thomas returned to UH as a fourth-year junior. He led the Rainbow Warriors with a 2.01 ERA this past season, increasing his value for 2019 MLB First-Year Player Draft.
