Blue Jays' Bo Bichette: Powers Jays with two homers

Bichette went 2-for-4 with two home runs and three total RBI in Saturday's 3-1 win over the Reds. As Alek Manoah worked his magic on the mound, Bichette did all the heavy lifting on the offensive side, smacking a solo homer in the fourth inning and a two-run shot in the seventh. Bichette is now up to .248/.287/.406 with six homers, four steals, 20 RBI and 19 runs scored through 40 games. He remains in the No. 2 spot in the order between George Springer and Vladimir Guerrero.

Blue Jays' Bo Bichette: Three hits with homer

Bichette went 3-for-5 with a solo home run, two RBI and two runs in the win Monday over the Mariners. Bichette took Chris Flexen deep in his first at-bat Monday, giving the Blue Jays a 1-0 lead in the bottom of the first. He later singled twice, adding another RBI and coming around to score again. The homer was his fourth of the year and first since May 1. The three-hit effort was the shortstop's second in his last five contests, though he had gone 0-for-10 in his last three heading into Monday's victory. Bichette has yet to find his stride this season and his slash line is at .247/.285/.373 over 150 at-bats, all of which represent career worsts. The 24-year-old will look to have more similar outputs in the near future and return to form as the campaign goes on.

Blue Jays' Bo Bichette: Three hits in Thursday's loss

Bichette went 3-for-5 with two runs scored in Thursday's loss to the Guardians. The shortstop has suddenly sprung to life at the plate, hitting safely in six straight games while going 11-for-24 (.458) with a homer, a steal, five runs and five RBI. Bichette's .254/.280/.377 slash line on the season remains well below expectations, but the 24-year-old is more than capable of staying hot for a couple weeks and boosting those numbers significantly.

Blue Jays' Bo Bichette: Slugs two-run homer in win

Bichette went 1-for-4 with a two-run homer and a strikeout in Sunday's 3-2 win over the Astros.

Bo Bichette hits game-winning grand slam as Boston Red Sox lose, 6-2, to Blue Jays; Nate Eovaldi cruises through 7 innings

Red Sox starter Nathan Eovaldi cruised through seven innings against the Blue Jays on Monday night. Once Boston turned things over to the bullpen, it was a different story. With the score tied, 2-2, in the eighth, Sox relievers Matt Strahm and Tyler Danish allowed three straight singles before Toronto slugger Bo Bichette hit an opposite field grand slam off Danish to put the Blue Jays up, 6-2. Toronto went on to take the opener of a four-game series by the same score as the Red Sox fell to 7-10.

Blue Jays' Bo Bichette: Beats Boston with first career slam

Bichette went 1-for-4 with a grand slam in Monday's 6-2 win over the Red Sox. With the score tied 2-2 in the bottom of the eighth inning and the bases loaded, Bichette drove a Matt Strahm sinker on the outer half of the plate to right field for his first career slam. The 24-year-old shortstop has had a sluggish start to 2022 that includes an uncharacteristic 28.0 percent strikeout rate, but Monday's homer -- his second of the season -- could be a sign Bichette is about to break out.

Blue Jays' Bo Bichette: Swipes bag Sunday

Bichette went 1-for-4 with a run scored and a stolen base in Sunday's Grapefruit League game against the Yankees. He swiped third base off Luis Gil in the third inning, forcing a wild throw from the right-hander that allowed Bichette to trot home. The 24-year-old shortstop hasn't seen great results at the plate this spring, going 5-for-27 (.185) with only one extra-base hit, but he's stolen two bags in two attempts and his 4:8 BB:K is solid. After recording 29 homers and 25 steals in 2021, Bichette has a 30/30 campaign firmly in his sights this season.
