Bo Bichette News
Toronto Blue Jays shortstop Bo Bichette had a strong game and drove in five runs during the club's 15-1 victory over the Los Angeles Angels on Saturday night. He went 2-for-4 with two doubles and a walk. He also scored three times. The young shortstop had previously struck out five times in his last nine at-bats. Bichette has had a relatively slow start to the year by his standards but is now hitting .270 with an OPS of .821. His BB-K of 1-12 needs some continued focus but he's quietly in the midst of an eight-game hit streak. Last year, Bichette battled injuries but still produced a 122 wRC+ in 29 games.
Toronto Blue Jays shortstop Bo Bichette had two home runs in a losing effort on Tuesday. The club managed just six hits in the 7-4 loss but the young hitter accounted for half of the runs with his two solo shots off starter Dane Dunning and reliever Matt Bush. Bichette is now hitting .250 this spring with three of his five hits going for extra bases. He has a BB-K of 0-6 on the season. The top three hitters in the Jays' lineup have now accounted for five of the team's eight home runs this spring with Marcus Semien (two), Cavan Biggio (one), and Bichette(2). The Jays will soon receive outfielder George Springer (oblique) back from injury and he's expected to hit leadoff which will provide even more pop at the top.
Toronto Blue Jays shortstop Bo Bichette has had an underwhelming start to the year, despite the Blue Jays winning three of their first four games. Bichette is 3-for-16 with a double. He's struck out five times and has been hit by a pitch, but he hasn't recorded a walk. Most surprisingly, he's yet to record either a run or an RBI despite hitting third in the potent Blue Jays lineup in each game to start the year. Bichette slashed .311/.358/.571 over 46 games in 2019 and slashed .301/.328/.512 over 30 games in 2020. He's also a stolen base threat as he racked up eight stolen bases over 2019 and 2020 combined. Fantasy managers who invested a great deal of draft stock in Bichette shouldn't be worried. The young Blue Jays star should start scoring and producing runs very soon.
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.
