As the old saying goes, "Bo knows." And if there is one thing this Bo knows how to do, it's hit home runs. The phrase is applicable again thanks to Bo Bichette of the Blue Jays, a son who can mash just like his father, Rockies legend Dante. Check out THIS monster shot.
Yes, red hot Toronto Blue Jays prospect Bo Bichette added two more home runs to his Spring Training stat line on Sunday, crushing a couple homers to opposite fields in Sunday's matchup against the Phillies. Bichette now brings his spring totals up to four home runs in 25 at bats, while batting an impressive .400 through 12 games.
Bichette, 20, who sits near the top of all prospect rankings, was originally drafted by the Blue Jays in second round of the 2016 MLB Draft.
The Lakewood high school product played all of last season for the New Hampshire Fisher Cats in the Double-A Eastern League. He played in 131 games, a majority of them at shortstop, with a .286 batting average, 11 home runs, and 71 RBI.
Bichette credits his recent spring success to his work ethic, and just playing every game as if it were already the regular season for the Blue Jays, no matter his chances of making the Opening Day roster.
"I try to take spring honestly the same as the season. I like to compete, and I can’t play well [if] I don’t compete."— MLB Pipeline (@MLBPipeline) March 10, 2019

Coming into to Spring Training, it didn't seem like Blue Jays were going to have such a hard decision to make, but now you can add Bichette to Vlad Guerrero Jr. on the list of players who've made remarkable impressions.
