Bo Bichette News
Toronto Blue Jays shortstop Bo Bichette took a longer break than normal from baseball activities to reset after the 2023 season. He also trained in other ways, taking up swimming, pilates and Muay Thai. Bichette is happy with the shape he's in at camp as a result and said he's "in a good place to play every day." The 25-year-old missed 25 games with right patellar tendinitis and a right quadriceps strain late last year, so he focused specifically on his right leg and took a holistic approach to his offseason training. Bichette made his second All-Star team in 2023, and despite stealing only five bases, he was one of the better hitters in the game with a .306/.339/.475 slash line with an .814 OPS, 20 homers and 73 RBI in 135 games. In a strong Toronto lineup, he's one of the top fantasy shortstops and is ranked No. 6 at the position by RotoBaller.
Toronto Blue Jays shortstop Bo Bichette likely won't be on the move this offseason despite rumors swirling that he could be traded. Blue Jays general manager Ross Atkins spoke with the media on Wednesday and seemingly confirmed he is not interested in trading his shortstop. "He's a really good player, we're very fortunate to have him and he's our shortstop," Atkins said. Just 25, Bichette is under club control for two more seasons while he's been among the best pure hitters in the game since debuting in 2019. Bichette is a career .299 hitter with 89 home runs and 51 stolen bases across 528 big-league games. He hit .306 with 20 HR, five SB, and an .814 OPS across 135 games in the 2023 season while his bat has been at least 20% superior to the league average in all five of his seasons, according to wRC+.
Toronto Blue Jays shortstop Bo Bichette (right quad) was activated from the 10-day injured list on Friday afternoon. The 25-year-old had been out since Aug. 27. He's slashing .314/.344/.488 with 18 homers this season, meaning his activation is great news for the Blue Jays and fantasy managers like. He should return to the starting lineup right away.
Toronto Blue Jays shortstop Bo Bichette has been a model of consistency since entering the league in 2019. Including that 46-game showing, Bichette's bat has been at least 20% superior to the league average in each of his five seasons, as per wRC+. He has slugged a minimum of 20 home runs, and as many as 29, in each of his three full big-league campaigns and stole a career-high 25 bases in 2021. The 25-year-old has a 121-run, 102-RBI campaign under his belt (2021) and is a career .299 hitter in 528 MLB contests. While he strikes out slightly below the league average, he also sports a subpar 5.5% BB% for his career, putting a cap on his on-base potential. In 2023, he only hit 20 home runs and stole just five bases in 135 games but he also ranked in the 86th percentile or better in xwOBA, xBA, xSLG, and sweet-spot%. A hamstring injury limited his run game last season but prospective fantasy managers should look for him to get back into double-digits in stolen bases in 2024, as projected by ATC. He currently sports a 38.37 ADP as the seventh shortstop off the board but could certainly top the likes of Elly De La Cruz, Francisco Lindor, Gunnar Henderson, or even the injured Corey Seager at the end of the day. His prevailing ADP is justified by his stout history of well-above-average production across the board.
