Biggio is out of the lineup for Tuesday's game against the Red Sox. Biggio went 3-for-11 with a home run, a double, three walks, two runs and two RBI while starting in each of the past four games, but he'll cede his spot in the lineup to Raimel Tapia on Tuesday. Until catcher Danny Jansen (finger) returns from the 10-day injured list, Biggio looks like he'll have an edge on Tapia and Gabriel Moreno for the final opening in Toronto's everyday lineup.
Biggio will start in left field and bat ninth in Monday's game against the Red Sox. Even after George Springer put an end to a three-game absence in Sunday's loss to the Brewers, Biggio has still been able to maintain a spot in the Toronto lineup. He'll stick in the starting nine for the fourth game in a row, this time playing the outfield while Lourdes Gurriel serves as Toronto's designated hitter. With Alejandro Kirk receiving more work behind the plate since top backstop Danny Jansen (finger) landed on the injured list earlier this month, Biggio looks to be manager Charlie Montoyo's preferred option to fill the opening in the everyday lineup, at least versus right-handed pitching. Biggio has helped his cause by producing a .935 OPS through 18 games in June.
Biggio went 2-for-2 with a solo home run, two walks and two total runs scored in Friday's 9-4 win over the Brewers. Biggio padded the Blue Jays' lead with his seventh-inning solo shot. While he's struggled to produce at the plate, there's been signs of life lately for the infielder, as he's gone 5-for-7 across his last three games with both of his homers on the year in that span. He's lifted his slash line to .220/.373/.390 with 10 RBI, 14 runs scored and a stolen base through 103 plate appearances, though he'll have to sustain this small hot streak to regain a regular role in the lineup.
Biggio went 2-for-4 with a two-run home run and a double in Monday's loss to the White Sox. Biggio accounted for two of Toronto's five extra-base hits in the contest, belting a double to right field in the seventh inning and swatting a two-run homer in the ninth that brought the Blue Jays to within a run. He had been struggling coming into the contest, going 0-for-13 with eight strikeouts over his previous four games. Biggio has yet to get going at the plate on the campaign, slashing .190/.333/.329 with one homer, eight RBI, 11 runs, a stolen base and a 30.2 percent strikeout over 96 plate appearances.
Biggio is out of the lineup for Sunday's game against the Yankees. Biggio will head to the bench after going hitless in 10 at-bats while starting each of the past three contests. Until the Blue Jays bring Danny Jansen (finger) back from the 10-day injured list, Biggio, Gabriel Moreno and Raimel Tapia look like they'll have to battle for one spot in Toronto's everyday lineup.
