Eric Thames was once a decent prospect for the Blue Jays, but he’s bounced around with four different teams in the past two seasons and now the Astros have released the 27-year-old outfielder so he can go play in Korea.

Thames hit .262 with 12 homers and a .769 OPS in 95 games for the Blue Jays as a rookie in 2011, but he struggled in 2012 and spent all of this year at Triple-A.

He’s always had good power and is a career .312 hitter with an .894 OPS at Triple-A, so considering how young he is Thames seems like someone who could resurface in the majors down the road.

    Good luck to Thames. Too bad things did not work out for him.

    It is strange the way some trades work out well and others do not. The Jays got Steve Delabar from Seattle in trade for Thames.
