A hit his first time up. Mom and dad watching.

Bo better enjoy his flowing locks while he has them.

From J.P. Breen's latest Stash List at BP:

1. Bo Bichette (SS) — Toronto Blue Jays (Previous Rank: 1)

And then there was one. With all due respect to Luis Robert
(who I don’t think will be up until September, if at all), Bichette is
the last high-end position prospect remaining who figures to get
promoted in the next couple of weeks. If Freddy Galvis
moves this week, as expected, the 21-year-old shortstop will have a
clear path to the big leagues. Toronto could end the 2019 campaign with
Bichette, Vladito, and Biggio anchoring the infield. Ain’t bad.

Bo Bichette, SS, Jays. Bichette had a four-hit game for Triple-A Buffalo on Sunday. The leadoff hitter drove in a run and came around to score three times. It was the second multi-hit game in a row for Toronto’s top prospect, and his third in the last four games.

From Rotoworld:

06.12: Blue Jays INF prospect Bo Bichette (hand) went 4-for-5 with two runs scored Tuesday for High-A Dunedin. (Bichette
has now played four games with Dunedin and should soon jump back to
Triple-A Buffalo, where he began the 2019 season. He was out of
commission for all of May because of a fracture in his left hand. The
21-year-old could make his MLB debut later this summer if his health
cooperates.)

Yes, I ended up freezing Bo as my first reserve pick. A costly decision.

Now the question is, do I pay the cost of keeping him all year? All of our contracts expire after two years. Reserve lists are limited to seven. Is Bo Bichette going to do more than, say, Ehire Adrianza this year?

Gets a Downgrade from Jesse Siegel, searching the hustings for "Risers and Fallers" at Rotowire.

Bo Bichette, SS, TOR – Bichette
became the latest in a string of highly touted prospects to suffer a
broken hand (see below).  This will obviously delay his eventual reunion
with Vladimir Guerrero Jr. However, Bichette did not need surgery, and should be back at Triple-A sometime in June.  Bichette was off to an average start at Triple-A
prior to the injury, hitting .250/.310/.404 with one home run, eight
RBIs and three steals in 14 contests.  Bichette just turned 21 in March,
possesses outstanding speed, emerging power and should hit for average
as well.  In sum, the Blue Jays are still hoping by the end of 2019 to
have Bichette manning shortstop at the big-league level.

I frowned when I read Eugene's post under Vladdy Jr about Bo needing to work on his fielding, because I thought he looked great in the field in several spring training games that I watched on MLB. And of course I wanted him to look great, because I need him to be great this year. I'll settle for just good.

Anyway, this today from Baseball America.

Notes:

ETA: 2019 
Hit: 70: | Power: 55 | Speed: 50 | Defense: 50 | Arm: 55

One of the top hitters in the minors, Bichette's defensive improvements make him Toronto's shortstop of the future

Maybe they have him on their team.

So he's still with the big club. What's up?

Tomorrow I have to hand in my freeze list in the ADL. Do I keep Bo?

It's only for this season and he takes up my first-round reserve pick (if he's down). A week ago, when it looked like Eloy Jimenez was going to start the season in Triple-A, it was a no-brainer to keep Bo. Eloy would take the first pick and Bo would easily be gone before my second pick.

Now, taking up the fourth pick in the first round, it's a whole nuther story. Will he still be there after three other teams have picked?

Unlikely, because all contracts are for two years. Bo will be in the majors next year. What about this year? By 6 PM tomorrow, I have to decide whether to freeze him.

Oh. If he makes the team he costs me $10. I'm good with that.
