Three Blue Jays whose Spring Training stats were legit

Bo Bichette

Not all Blue Jays had a fluke Spring Training, as you could always count on Bo Bichette to be the big game player, no matter what time of the year it is. Giving it his all no matter if it was just practice, preseason, regular season or the playoffs, Bichette had an explosive Spring Training for the Blue Jays, as he powered his way to an impressive .315 batting average, .936 OPS, with 11 runs scored, four home runs, nine RBI and three stolen bases in just 54 at-bats, leading all Jays players.

Of course, nothing was going to stop Bo at anything, as once the regular season started, he just casually continued where he had left off. Demolishing opponent pitching left and right and being selected to the 2023 All-Star game as a result, Bichette has been everything the Jays could expect him to be, posting a .315 batting average, .835 OPS, with 47 runs scored, 22 doubles, 16 home runs, and 53 RBI in 97 games played. Not only that, he has come through in key moments for the ballclub and has also cleaned up a lot of his defensive lapses from last year as well, making him now a valuable player in all facets of the game.

Bichette is shaping up to be one of those well-rounded, franchise players that one would build around, and no doubt the Jays will be looking to extend their perennial superstar so that he can help the Jays to much more success in at least the coming decade.
