Dante Bichette was a four-time all-star during his 14-year big league career, and his eldest son, Dante Jr., was the 51st overall pick in the 2011 draft. Five years later, Bo, the youngest Bichette brother, has a chance to go in about that same range. Bichette is home schooled, but plays at nearby Lakewood High. He has had a big spring at the plate, but that has also gotten the attention of opposing teams, who have liberally issued him intentional walks all spring. When he does get the chance to hit, Bichette shows a mature approach at the plate and plus power. The righthanded hitter has exceptionally fast hands, allowing him to whip the bat through the zone and drive the ball. His swing includes a deep load and an exaggerated back elbow swoop, but his bat works through the zone well and he controlled at-bats against elite competition on the showcase circuit. Bichette has a steady glove and a strong arm. He plays shortstop now and could go out as one, but will eventually move to second base or, more likely owing to his 6-foot, 200-pound frame, third base. No matter where the Arizona State recruit ends up defensively, Bichette's main attraction will always be his offensive ability.
