Bo Bichette News
Toronto Blue Jays shortstop Bo Bichette got his first career start out of the cleanup spot on Saturday and went on to go 3-for-4 with three runs and two RBI in the club's 10-3 win over the Mets. The 23-year-old swatted a pair of singles and also chipped in with his 17th dinger of the season in what turned out to be a smart move by Charlie Montoyo to shuffle up the top half of the lineup. Bichette is now sitting pretty with a .294/.345/.479 slash line with 76 runs, 63 RBI, and 13 thefts through 94 games in 2021. Whether he remains getting at-bats as the cleanup hitter remains to be seen, but it's certain that he'll stay in the top half of the lineup where his counting stats will continue to thrive.
Toronto Blue Jays shortstop Bo Bichette extended his hitting streak to seven games on Friday, going 2-for-5 with two RBI and a run scored in a 10-2 win over the Rangers. Bichette has been on a roll during this streak, slashing .379/.400/.517 with one home run, five RBI and four runs scored. This stretch has boosted his season line to .294/.343/.482, as he now has 16 homers, 12 steals, 59 RBI and 72 runs scored. There are few shortstops who are having a more productive season than Bichette, and managers should continue to enjoy having his bat in their lineup.
Toronto Blue Jays shortstop Bo Bichette had a terrific day at the plate on Wednesday, going 3-for-5 as his club went on to a 10-2 rout over the Orioles. The 23-year-old scored two runs and drove in three with an RBI single in the fourth and a two-run homer in the sixth to bring his long ball total to 16 on the season. Bichette is having an outstanding year as a five-category contributor with a major-league leading 70 runs to go with 57 RBI, 12 SB, and a .295/.345/.488 slash line. Managers should be thrilled with the return that the 2021 All-Star has provided so far as we drool over what his year-end numbers might look like at this pace.
We've only seen 75 major league games from Toronto Blue Jays shortstop Bo Bichette since his first call-up in July 2019. He's shown us a lot to like over that stretch, slashing .307/.347/.549 with 16 home runs, 44 RBI, 50 runs and eight stolen bases. Bichette primarily hit second in the Blue Jays batting order last year, which is a great spot to be in. The Blue Jays batting order is quickly emerging to be one of the league's more formidable lineups. There's a very good chance he ends up being the Blue Jays leadoff hitter in 2021, which would make him a strong candidate to score over 100 runs and see a sturdy amount of plate appearances. Jonathan Villar was the team's primary leadoff hitter in 2020 and is likely signing with another team for 2021. Bichette offers the potential to be a jack-of-all-trades fantasy asset, contributing in power, stolen bases and batting average. It's hard to know what his ceiling is in terms of stolen bases. He swiped 32 bags over 131 games in his last full minor league campaign in 2018, so the potential is there for 30-plus stolen bases, it's just a question of whether he'll get the green light. Because of his versatility, he's slightly more attractive in rotisserie leagues and head-to-head categories leagues than he is in points leagues. Draft him at the end of the second round in the former formats and at the top of the third in the latter format.
