Blue Jays Utility Player To Play "A Ton Of Outfield" This Season

Toronto Blue Jays player Cavan Biggio is expected to split his playing time equally between the infield and outfield this season, according to reports by Keegan Matheson of

His manager, John Schneider, stated that Biggio will play "a ton" in the outfield, despite mostly playing right field in the majors.

The 27-year-old showcased his defensive skills during a recent Grapefruit League game against the Tigers, where he made a spectacular sliding catch in right field and doubled off a runner at first base.

Although he struggled at the plate last season with a .202/.318/.350 slash line over 97 games, Biggio's potential as a baserunner and defensive player offer a solid baseline for the Blue Jays. He's 25-for-26 in stolen base attempts for his career.

If anyone's due for a bounceback on the Blue Jays, it's Biggio.

In his first two seasons, he hit .240, reached base at a .368 rate and hit 24 home runs, making him a solid asset to the team. He also finished fifth in Rookie-of-the-Year voting in his first season in 2019.

With his excellent plate discipline, decent power, and strong speed, the twenty-seven-year-old has the ability to put it all together and show why he was one of the top prospects in the game not too long ago.

Maybe this is the year he finally breakouts out. Photo Credit: Nathan Ray Seebeck-USA TODAY Sports
