NextImg:Frank Thomas out as Fox Sports MLB analyst after Derek Jeter addition

With Derek Jeter in on Fox Sports biggest baseball pregame shows, Frank Thomas is officially out, The Post has learned.

Thomas had been with Fox Sports for nearly a decade. He had been a part of Fox’s biggest pregame shows, including the World Series and All-Star game, teaming with Alex Rodriguez, David Ortiz and host Kevin Burkhardt in recent years.

Jeter will take his place, debuting in June on the London Series, working the All-Star Game in July then the playoffs in October.

Thomas, a Hall of Famer, also did some FS1 pregames, which Jeter will not participate in. In February, New York Post Sports Plus first reported that Thomas’ spot was in jeopardy due to Jeter’s arrival.

Thomas was not included in Fox’s analyst announcement for the upcoming season.

There are no further negotiations.

“Frank has been an integral member of the FOX MLB studio team for nearly a decade and has helped raise the bar on our coverage while continuously growing the game of baseball,” a Fox Sports spokesman said in a statement to The Post on Saturday. “Although he is not a part of our coverage this season, ‘The Big Hurt’ will always be a member of our Fox Sports family and we wish him all the best in his future endeavors.”
