Bo Bichette Climbing To New Heights

Bo Bichette fell to the Blue Jays in the second round of the 2016 draft, but Toronto hasn't found a level to truly challenge the 19-year-old shortstop. He has hit .372 in 530 pro at-bats, despite complicated swing mechanics that give some pro scouts pause. (Photo by Cliff Welch)

The 19-year-old Blue Jays shortstop hit .362/.423/.565 with 14 home runs in 108 games as one of the youngest players in two Class A leagues, winning the minor league batting title while placing himself firmly on the map as one of game's best prospects.

Given his track record at his St. Petersburg, Fla., high school, his performance this season at low Class A Lansing and high Class A Dunedin shouldn't be a surprise.
