Bo Bichette News
Toronto Blue Jays shortstop Bo Bichette had a massive day at the plate in Monday's doubleheader against the Orioles. Bichette went 3-for-5 with three singles, two RBI, and a strikeout in Game One's 7-3 win and 3-for-5 with three home runs, five RBI, and a strikeout in Game Two's 8-4 win. The big games helped boost the 24-year-old's season stats to a .272/.315/.451 slash line with 21 HR, 78 RBI, and nine steals. While Bichette has been a solid fantasy player, he hasn't delivered quite as much as fantasy players had hoped, although there are still a few more weeks in the season for him to contribute.
Toronto Blue Jays shortstop Bo Bichette went 2-for-4 with a double, two RBI, a stolen base, a walk and two strikeouts in Thursday's 6-5 win over the Boston Red Sox. He's been very solid in the month of August, going 22-for-81 (.272) with three home runs, six doubles, 11 RBI and 10 runs scored in 20 games played. The 24-year-old youngster is slashing .261/.301/.424 overall on the season with 17 home runs, 66 RBI, 65 runs scored and eight stolen bases in 529 plate appearances over 121 games. He remains a must-start fantasy shortstop in single-year leagues the rest of the way in a strong Toronto lineup.
Toronto Blue Jays shortstop Bo Bichette is starting at the 6 and hitting seventh in the batting order on Tuesday against Baltimore Orioles right-hander Dean Kremer. This will be just the second time all year that Bichette has hit seventh in the lineup and just the 10th time that he's hit fifth or lower. In 11 games in the month of August, he has gone 12-for-44 (.273) with three home runs, nine RBI and seven runs scored, so it's not as if Bichette has been terrible at the plate lately. Overall, the 24-year-old is hitting .260/.301/.430 with 17 home runs, 64 RBI, 62 runs scored and seven stolen bases in 461 at-bats. Bichette remains a must-start in season-long leagues, but the drop to the seven hole on Tuesday will lower his DFS appeal.
Bo Bichette's first full season in the Majors couldn't have gone much better. In 159 games, Bichette's fantasy line was .298 avg, 29 HR, 102 RBI, 121 R and 25 SB. Only three other players had 20/20 seasons with 100+ runs and RBI. And none of the others hit over .270. Only Blue Jays teammate Vladimir Guerrero Jr. (123) scored more runs than Bichette so it should come as no surprise that Bichette is currently being drafted in the middle of the first round. Bichette's value does take a slight hit in leagues counting walks or OBP as his 5.8% BB% ranked in the 13th percentile. That's down to how aggressive he is at the plate, with a 57.8% Swing% which ranked tied-third among qualified hitters in 2021. It certainly didn't do him any harm considering his performance and the league leader in Swing% was Salvador Perez who was tied for the MLB lead in homers with 48. Bichette was a blue-chip prospect and given 2021 was his first full season, there's reason to believe he can improve in 2022. A repeat of 2021 will provide draft day value and if he does take a further step forward, he's got the potential to be the fantasy MVP in 2022.
