Bichette went 4-for-5 with a double and a stolen base Sunday in Triple-A Buffalo's 8-1 win over Norfolk. The four-hit performance was Bichette's first at the Triple-A level and is the latest in a growing list of strong offensive showings for the 21-year-old. Since rejoining Buffalo on June 13 after missing nearly two months with a fractured left hand, Bichette is slashing .342/.375/.605 with six extra-base hits and two steals in nine games. A promotion to the big leagues in 2019 remains in play for Bichette, though it's not a certainty with the rebuilding Blue Jays organization perhaps eager to delay his service clock.
Bichette went 3-for-5 with a double, a home run, two runs scored and five RBI for Triple-A Buffalo on Thursday. The 21-year-old hasn't missed a beat since coming off the minor-league IL, slashing .342/.432/.605 through 10 games with four doubles, two homers, two steals, eight runs and eight RBI. If Bichette stays healthy and keeps tormenting International League pitchers, there's still a chance he could join the rest of the Jays' legacy prospect cohort -- Vlad Guerrero Jr., Cavan Biggio and Lourdes Gurriel -- in the majors before the end of the season.
Bichette (hand) is expected to return to action Thursday, Ben Nicholson-Smith of Sportsnet.ca reports. Bichette has been out with a broken hand since late April. He's appeared in four rehab games with High-A Dunedin, going 6-for-11 with five walks.
Bichette (hand) is expected to be activated from the 7-day injured list later in the week, Shi Davidi of Sportsnet.ca reports. Bichette has been able to play in two rehab games with High-A Dunedin, so he'll likely be activated from the injured list sometime this week. He's been on the shelf since the end of April after breaking his left hand.
Bichette (hand) began a rehab assignment with High-A Dunedin on Friday, Shi Davidi of Sportsnet.ca reports. Bichette entered the starting lineup for the High-A club at shortstop and appears to be nearing a return from the shelf after breaking his left hand near the end of April. While he'll initially return to Triple-A Buffalo once he's activated from the minor-league IL, it's certainly possible that he could make his big-league debut shortly afterwards.
