Toronto Blue Jays
2020 Fantasy Outlook
One of the Blue Jays' top prospects, Biggio received the callup to the big leagues in late May and was eased into the starting role at second base, starting 84 games at the position. He also started eight games in the outfield, four at DH and two at first base. Overall it was a solid rookie campaign as he posted a .234/.364/.429 slash line with 16 home runs and 14 stolen bases. He continued the trend of a high-strikeout rate from the minors (28.6%), but he also had a 16.5 BB%, which would have been top five in MLB among qualified hitters had Biggo logged enough plate appearances to qualify. Biggio's sophomore campaign should see him in an everyday role in Toronto, and his quality rookie campaign and 20-20-plus potential make him an appealing fantasy asset, even more so if he can reduce the strikeouts.

Biggio got the start in center field during Saturday's Grapefruit League game, Keegan Matheson of MLB.com reports.
ANALYSIS
While the 24-year-old is still locked in as the Jays' starting second baseman, Biggio could find himself seeing occasional action in center or at first base depending on who else is resting or slotted in at DH during any particular game. While this might eventually result in extra position eligibility down the road in fantasy leagues with lower qualification thresholds, the most important takeaway is that manager Charlie Montoya sees Biggio as a player he needs to keep in the lineup as much as possible.

2019 Fantasy Outlook
Biggio is a legitimate major-league prospect, though he's kind of the third wheel in the trio of well-known, second-generation prospects within the Blue Jays' farm system (behind Vlad Guerrero Jr. and Bo Bichette). The son of Hall of Famer Craig Biggio, Cavan hit 26 homers and stole 20 bases at Double-A New Hampshire last season. The latter total led the Eastern League and he also led the league (by a mile) with 100 walks. However, Biggio struck out 148 times (26.3 K%) as a 23-year-old, which raises questions about his ability to hit major-league pitching. Complicating matters is the fact that the the Blue Jays had Biggio work primarily in the outfield corners during the Arizona Fall League, and if they prefer him out there, it will put more pressure on his bat in the years ahead. It's possible Biggio ultimately breaks into the majors in a utility role.
