RotoWire's Preseason Outlooks
Bichette's swing gets compared to Josh Donaldson's, so naturally the Blue Jays were interested and signed him to an over-slot deal when he fell to them at pick 66 in the 2016 draft. The younger son of Dante Bichette, Bo is a sturdy 5-foot-11, 201 pounds, and his aggressive, power-oriented approach led to a 238 wRC+ and 1.182 OPS in 22 games in the Gulf Coast League. He would have led the league in every hitting category as an 18-year-old if he had enough plate appearances to qualify, but an appendix issue sidelined him for over a month. Obviously his .484 BABIP was a major contributor to his absurd numbers, but evaluators believe in the bat, projecting him as an average or better hitter with plus pop. He will be kept at shortstop for now, but it seems inevitable that he moves to second or third down the road. Bichette will start 2017 at Low-A, and he will shoot up prospect lists if he legitimizes his 2016 numbers without whiffing too much.
