Blue Jays' Cavan Biggio: Back to bench role

Biggio is out of the lineup for Thursday's game against the Tigers. Biggio's streak of four consecutive starts will come to an end while the Blue Jays roll out a lineup consisting of their preferred option at each position in the series opener with Detroit. Due to his defensive versatility along with the team's inclination to periodically dole out rest days to lineup regulars, Biggio should still pick up a handful of starts per week even while Toronto is at full strength.

Blue Jays' Cavan Biggio: Picks up fourth straight start

Biggio will start at second base and bat sixth in Wednesday's game against the Cardinals. Biggio will be filling in for a resting Santiago Espinal in what marks the former's fourth consecutive start. The 27-year-old will carry a five-game hitting streak into Wednesday's contest, but Biggio is unlikely to handle anything more than a part-time role moving forward while all of Toronto's key regulars are healthy.

Blue Jays' Cavan Biggio: Two RBI in win

Biggio went 1-for-4 with a two-RBI single, a run scored and a steal in Sunday's victory over Boston. Biggio sent Vladimir Guerrero and George Springer home on a first-inning single, then scored on a Raimel Tapia triple later that inning. Biggio also swiped second base off Brayan Bello for his second steal of the year. The second baseman has a lackluster .229 batting average, but has shown some signs of improvement as he extended his hit streak to four games.

Blue Jays' Cavan Biggio: Playing time likely to trend down

Biggio is out of the lineup for Tuesday's game against the Phillies. With catcher Danny Jansen (finger) returning from the 10-day injured list and starting behind the plate Tuesday, Alejandro Kirk is likely to begin seeing more starts out of the designated-hitter spot. As a result, Biggio and Raimel Tapia are likely to see their opportunities decrease moving forward, since the Blue Jays had previously been able to open up spots in the lineup for the two while rotating a number of different players at DH. Biggio had started in nine of the Jays' previous 11 games in July, while Tapia picked up seven starts over that stretch.

Blue Jays' Cavan Biggio: Making fourth consecutive start

Biggio will start at second base and bat ninth in Sunday's game against the Rays. Biggio started both ends of Saturday's doubleheader and is now set to make his fourth consecutive start for the Blue Jays. Three of those four starts have come at second base, as Biggio picks up extra work while Santiago Espinal shifts elsewhere on the infield to give the likes of Bo Bichette and Matt Chapman a breather. Biggio is slashing .294/.442/.544 with a pair of homers since the beginning of June.

Blue Jays' Cavan Biggio: On bench Tuesday

Biggio is out of the lineup for Tuesday's game against the Red Sox. Biggio went 3-for-11 with a home run, a double, three walks, two runs and two RBI while starting in each of the past four games, but he'll cede his spot in the lineup to Raimel Tapia on Tuesday. Until catcher Danny Jansen (finger) returns from the 10-day injured list, Biggio looks like he'll have an edge on Tapia and Gabriel Moreno for the final opening in Toronto's everyday lineup.

Blue Jays' Cavan Biggio: Goes deep Friday

Biggio went 2-for-2 with a solo home run, two walks and two total runs scored in Friday's 9-4 win over the Brewers. Biggio padded the Blue Jays' lead with his seventh-inning solo shot. While he's struggled to produce at the plate, there's been signs of life lately for the infielder, as he's gone 5-for-7 across his last three games with both of his homers on the year in that span. He's lifted his slash line to .220/.373/.390 with 10 RBI, 14 runs scored and a stolen base through 103 plate appearances, though he'll have to sustain this small hot streak to regain a regular role in the lineup.

Potential trade deadline targets — Cavan Biggio

Last week, Alex Anthopoulos confirmed that the Braves will be looking to add a left-handed bat before the trade deadline. With Rosario already expected to return after the All-Star break, it can be assumed this left-handed bat AA is speaking of will be a utility player capable of playing second base that could potentially platoon with Orland Arcia.

Blue Jays' Cavan Biggio: Retreats to bench

Biggio is out of the lineup for Wednesday's game against the Orioles. Biggio will take a seat after he went 6-for-20 with three extra-base hits, four walks, three runs and two RBI while starting in each of the Jays' last six games. The 27-year-old has looked far better with Toronto following his May 26 call-up from Triple-A than he did earlier in the campaign, but he still looks to be stuck in a utility role with Vladimir Guerrero, Santiago Espinal, Bo Bichette and Matt Chapman locked in as the Jays' everyday infielders.

Blue Jays' Cavan Biggio: Collects fifth straight start

Biggio will start at second base and bat ninth in Monday's game against the Orioles. Biggio will stay in the lineup for a fifth straight game after going 5-for-14 with two doubles, three walks, two runs and one RBI across the previous four contests. His increased playing time has coincided with Matt Chapman (wrist) missing three consecutive contests, so Biggio could be pushed into more of a utility role if Chapman is able to avoid a trip to the injured list.

Blue Jays' Cavan Biggio: On bench for third straight

Biggio is out of the lineup for Tuesday's game against the Royals. Biggio logged eight starts in nine games following his promotion from Triple-A Buffalo on May 26, but he'll be taking a seat Tuesday for the third contest in a row. With Vladimir Guerrero and Matt Chapman established as the everyday starters at the two corner-infield spots and with Santiago Espinal having rebuilt some job security as the Blue Jays' primary second baseman by homering in back-to-back games, Biggio doesn't have a clear path to regular at-bats at any spot.

Cavan Biggio begins finding himself at the plate in valuable role for Blue Jays

TORONTO – Since returning from COVID-19 and a stint at triple-A Buffalo, Cavan Biggio is showing signs of finding himself at the plate, in turn demonstrating how valuable he can be for the Toronto Blue Jays as their long sought super-utility player. A .286/.464/.429 batting line with four RBIs,...

Blue Jays' Cavan Biggio: Called up by Blue Jays

Biggio was recalled from Triple-A Buffalo on Thursday. Biggio missed several weeks in late April and early May while on the COVID-19 injured list, and he was sent to the minors after clearing the league's health and safety protocols. The 27-year-old has played in 10 games at Buffalo, and he's hit .276 with three doubles, nine runs, three RBI and two stolen bases. Biggio will be available for Thursday's series opener against the Angels, but it seems as though he'll serve mainly in a depth role since Santiago Espinal has performed well as the primary second baseman.

It may be time to send Cavan Biggio to Triple A to find his game.

This is not an article to say I told you so. Players are human beings and I want the best for Cavan Biggio. With that being said, I was “Cavan-pilled” a while ago. However, I think sending him to the minors to help him find his game would be the best thing for the 27-year-old.

Blue Jays' Cavan Biggio: Moves to COVID-19 IL

Biggio was placed on the COVID-19 injured list Monday. General manager Ross Atkins announced earlier Monday that Biggio was experiencing COVID-19 symptoms, so it's not a surprise to see him headed to the injured list. The 27-year-old, who has filled a utility role early this season after losing his starting job, will need to clear MLB's testing protocols before rejoining the team.
