DH,SS - TOR
Bo Bichette went 2-for-4 with two home runs and three RBI on Saturday against the Reds.
Bichette's home runs traveled 407 and 415 feet and were his fifth and sixth of the season. Like most of Toronto's hitters, it's been a relatively slow start for Bichette, who is slashing just .248/.287/.406 thus far. Hopefully Saturday's big game propels him toward a hot streak.
Bo Bichette went 3-for-5 with two runs scored, two RBI, and a home run against the Mariners on Monday.
Bichette has been slumping of late and has had a down season, so it was good to see him get going here after a hitless weekend. He did strike out once in the game, giving him 40 for the season and a 25.3% strikeout rate. Bichette will get going eventually and, other than his inflated strikeout rate, his batted ball profile doesn't look all that much different from last year. Avoid the urge to sell low and expect Bichette to turn things around soon.
Bo Bichette went 0-for-4 on Sunday and 0-for-10 in the weekend series against the Rays, dropping his batting average to just .234.
Bichette's strikeout rate is now 25.5% after two strikeouts on Sunday, significantly higher than his 19.9% mark he tallied last year. But his quality of contact is actually better than last year, and his xBA is .292, one point higher than he put up last season. There's no reason to be concerned about Bichette, and fantasy managers can expect him to turn around his relatively slow start to the season soon.
Bo Bichette went 1-for-9 with a double and two RBI in Saturday's doubleheader against the Guardians.
Bichette was also caught stealing on Saturday, making it the second time he's been caught in five attempts. He's had a difficult time getting going this year, as his 26% strikeout rate, 3.1% walk rate, .244 batting average, .268 OBP, and .366 slugging percentage are all a career worst by far. Bichette is far too talented to let a few sub-par weeks worry his fantasy managers, so they should hang tight and trust that he'll be back where everyone expects him to be by season's end.
Bo Bichette went 1-for-4 on Sunday against Houston, but the hit was a big one as Bichette blasted a two-run home run, his third of the year.
Bichette is slowly coming out of a slump with two home runs and two stolen bases over his last seven games. He is still carrying a .214/.238/.565 slash line for the season, but his batting average has trended in a positive direction over the last week.
