Biggest Spring Standout: Toronto Blue Jays

The Toronto Blue Jays essentially had their Opening Day roster locked in a month ago. Not many battles for positions on this team of young veterans. 

It's not like anybody had to win a job, but nevertheless, it was nice to see one young All-Star pick up his red-hot hitting from the end of the 2022 season. 

Bo Bichette was the Blue Jays' spring standout, hitting .302 with an .849 OPS, and spraying the ball all over the field, while also displaying his prodigious power. 

He also showed off his speed, adding three stolen bases to his three long balls. He could be taking a liking to the new rules that will increase stolen base attempts. 

After a slower start to the season in '22, Bichette showed out in September when he batted .406 with a 1.106 OPS. He finished the year at .290 with an .802 OPS, along with 24 homers, 13 stolen bases and 93 RBIs. He also led the American League in hits, with 189. 

No doubt that manager John Schneider was glad to see Bo bringing it once again this spring, while hoping that carries over into the regular season.
