Justin Thomas is in a difficult position.

He's not a starting pitcher for the Pacific Coast League's Tacoma Rainiers, the Seattle Mariners' Triple-A affiliate. He's really not a closer, either. He has perhaps the most underappreciated job in baseball - set-up man.

"I'm more of a seventh- or eighth-inning guy," said Thomas, 25, a 2002 Clay graduate. "We don't really have specific roles. I'm used sometimes in situations late in the game or kind of like in a set-up position. I did have some saves and I've been in some save situations, but we have a guy (Randy Messenger) who is pretty much the main closer."
