Well, his healthy years in Cleveland, he was a .270-.300 hitter. He had Manny protecting him (or was it the other way around) and that's comparable to Konerko protecting him now. Right now, he's at about K/game; last full season he had with such a low K/game was 2002 when he hit .304 (.95 K/game), and 1996 when he hit .311 (.93K/game).
Thome's not a great hitter, he's a masher so I see his average falling between .270 and .300 again. I know that's a huge range, but I feel like his final BA is going to be determined by luck more than anything. If he can keep his Ks down, he should finish north of .285
