Blue Jays: Cavan Biggio poised to bring winning culture back to Toronto
Toronto Blue Jays prospect Cavan Biggio is poised to bring a winning culture back to Toronto along with Vladimir Guerrero Jr. and Bo Bichette.
Cavan Biggio is the son of a baseball Hall of Famer and demands excellence from himself, he also realizes his potential and the potential of the talented group of prospects around him. Biggio recently spoke to Sportsnet about the winning culture he intends to bring back to Toronto.
After a breakout campaign last season, Biggio is now in the same conversation with the likes of Guerrero and Bichette when foreshadowing the next youth movement in Toronto. Biggio is currently playing in the Arizona Fall League as he attempts to hone his craft in the outfield this fall.
A natural middle infielder, Biggio is adding versatility to his resume this fall in hopes of bettering his chances for the big club as Bichette, Guerrero and Lourdes Gurriel Jr. are firmly entrenched as the infield of the future.

Last season Biggio hit .252/.388/.499 with 26 homers in Double-A New Hampshire. The 23-year old still needs to cut down on the number of swings and misses if he is going to be an everyday player at the next level. In 2018, Biggio whiffed 148 times in 563 plate appearances with the Fisher Cats.
The exciting characteristic of all three uber prospects is their pedigree and makeup having all had father’s who were very successful major leaguers. Craig Biggio, Vladimir Guerrero, and Dante Bichette were not fringe major leaguers, these guys know what it takes to win and perform at the major league level. This quality was no doubt ingrained in all three future Blue Jays from a very young age.
There is no question this trio will bring a winning culture back to Toronto and instill an attitude where losing is no longer acceptable.
