Bo Bichette News
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 (quadriceps) did some running, hitting and fielding of ground balls right at him on Friday, and the hope is that he'll be back within the minimum 10 days on the injured list, according to manager John Schneider. Bichette will be first eligible to return from the IL next Friday, Sept. 8. The 25-year-old was placed on the IL for the second time in the second half of the season with a right-quadriceps strain, but it wasn't too serious. The two-time All-Star is one of the best shortstops in the game when healthy and is a must-start in fantasy lineups when he's on the field. When Bichette returns, Ernie Clement will go back to a bench role for the Blue Jays. Bichette is hitting a strong .314/.344/.488 with an .831 OPS, 18 home runs, 62 RBI, three stolen bases and 54 runs scored in 114 games in 2023.
The Toronto Blue Jays placed shortstop Bo Bichette (quadriceps) on the 10-day injured list (retroactive to Aug. 28) with a right-quadriceps strain on Tuesday and selected the contract of infielder Mason McCoy from the minors in a corresponding move. Bichette injured his quad on Sunday and will return to the IL after recently missing time with patellar knee tendinitis. The good news is that the 25-year-old's quad injury isn't related to his knee, so hopefully he can return when he's eligible early in September. Ernie Clement is getting another start at the 6 for Toronto on Tuesday, but Santiago Espinal is another candidate to see playing time at shortstop until Bichette returns. Bichette is one of the best fantasy shortstops in the game when healthy, so he needs to remain stashed in all leagues.
Toronto Blue Jays infielder Bo Bichette enjoyed yet another strong season at the plate during the 2022 season. The shortstop hit .290 with a .333 on-base percentage, 24 home runs, and 13 stolen bases in 697 plate appearances for the American League East club. The 2022 campaign marked the second straight year that Bichette has recorded at least 20 home runs to go with double-digit steals. He's also never failed to hit below .290 in each of his four seasons in the Majors. He should be in line for another quality fantasy season in 2023, especially after registering a career-best 50.3% hard-hit rate, to go along with a solid 9.6% barrel rate this past year. Helping Bichette's case to hit for a high average is his strikeout rate, which tends to be rather low each year. It was 22.2% in 2022, and while he doesn't draw a ton of walks, his ability to make contact at a high rate positions him well for fantasy success. He could have even more fantasy success next season, especially on the basepaths where larger bases could result in a noticeable uptick in stolen bases league-wide. He's well worth a look as a second-round pick for fantasy managers and could be a league winner in standard-scoring leagues if he approaches his 2021 total of 25 stolen bases.
