Bo Bichette is a player the Chicago White Sox needs to be careful with here.
The 23-year-old Bichette is only hitting .262 on the season, producing a slash line of .262/.311/.464 with an OPS of .774. He ranks third on the team in hits with 61 and fourth in home runs sitting at 11. He has also driven in 34 runs, good for third on the team behind Guerrero Jr. and outfielder Randal Grichuk. Bichette has had a slow start to the 2021 season, but expect the young star to break out soon.
Over his last seven days, the shortstop has struggled. He is only batting .250 with one extra-base hit, producing a slash line of .250/.286/.350 with an OPS of .636. The power pitching the White Sox have is good enough to keep the young star’s bat cold for the next few games.
Although some of the numbers may not show it, Bichette is an offensive weapon for the Blue Jays and is an important part of their offense. The star shortstop has the potential to turn it on at any time and it would be a mistake to overlook his hitting tools.
Regardless, this should be an exciting matchup between two of the hottest young teams in the MLB. If each team plays to their potential, it will be an entertaining series.
