  • Blue Jays' Cavan Biggio: Sits after four straight starts

    Biggio is out of the lineup for Wednesday's game against the Orioles, Mike Wilner of the Toronto Star reports.

    After starting each of the last four games -- two at first base and two at second base -- Biggio will head to the bench as the Blue Jays go with Vladimir Guerrero and Santiago Espinal at those respective positions. Biggio has gotten off to a nice start to August with an .816 OPS through six contests, and he could be able to maintain a part-time role for the Blue Jays until George Springer's (elbow) return from the injured list pushes Whit Merrifield to the infield on a more frequent basis.

  • Blue Jays' Cavan Biggio: Swats third homer

    Biggio went 1-for-3 with a walk and a solo home run in Monday's 7-4 loss to the Orioles.

    Getting the start at second base and batting ninth, the 27-year-old launched his first homer since late June and only his third of the season in 198 plate appearances. Biggio is getting more consistent playing time while George Springer (elbow) is on the shelf and Whit Merrifield is needed in center field, and he's responded by going 4-for-13 (.308) with a double and a home run over the last five games.

  • Blue Jays' Cavan Biggio: Back to bench role

    Biggio is out of the lineup for Thursday's game against the Tigers.

    Biggio's streak of four consecutive starts will come to an end while the Blue Jays roll out a lineup consisting of their preferred option at each position in the series opener with Detroit. Due to his defensive versatility along with the team's inclination to periodically dole out rest days to lineup regulars, Biggio should still pick up a handful of starts per week even while Toronto is at full strength.

  • Blue Jays' Cavan Biggio: Picks up fourth straight start

    Biggio will start at second base and bat sixth in Wednesday's game against the Cardinals.

    Biggio will be filling in for a resting Santiago Espinal in what marks the former's fourth consecutive start. The 27-year-old will carry a five-game hitting streak into Wednesday's contest, but Biggio is unlikely to handle anything more than a part-time role moving forward while all of Toronto's key regulars are healthy.

  • Blue Jays' Cavan Biggio: Two RBI in win

    Biggio went 1-for-4 with a two-RBI single, a run scored and a steal in Sunday's victory over Boston.

    Biggio sent Vladimir Guerrero and George Springer home on a first-inning single, then scored on a Raimel Tapia triple later that inning. Biggio also swiped second base off Brayan Bello for his second steal of the year. The second baseman has a lackluster .229 batting average, but has shown some signs of improvement as he extended his hit streak to four games.

  • Blue Jays' Cavan Biggio: Playing time likely to trend down

    Biggio is out of the lineup for Tuesday's game against the Phillies.

    With catcher Danny Jansen (finger) returning from the 10-day injured list and starting behind the plate Tuesday, Alejandro Kirk is likely to begin seeing more starts out of the designated-hitter spot. As a result, Biggio and Raimel Tapia are likely to see their opportunities decrease moving forward, since the Blue Jays had previously been able to open up spots in the lineup for the two while rotating a number of different players at DH. Biggio had started in nine of the Jays' previous 11 games in July, while Tapia picked up seven starts over that stretch.

  • Blue Jays' Cavan Biggio: Making fourth consecutive start

    Biggio will start at second base and bat ninth in Sunday's game against the Rays.

    Biggio started both ends of Saturday's doubleheader and is now set to make his fourth consecutive start for the Blue Jays. Three of those four starts have come at second base, as Biggio picks up extra work while Santiago Espinal shifts elsewhere on the infield to give the likes of Bo Bichette and Matt Chapman a breather. Biggio is slashing .294/.442/.544 with a pair of homers since the beginning of June.

  • Blue Jays' Cavan Biggio: On bench Tuesday

    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.

  • Blue Jays' Cavan Biggio: Receives fourth straight start

    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.

  • Blue Jays' Cavan Biggio: Goes deep Friday

    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.

  • Blue Jays' Cavan Biggio: Belts first homer

    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.

  • Blue Jays' Cavan Biggio: Retreats to bench

    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.

  • Blue Jays' Cavan Biggio: Retreats to bench

    Biggio is out of the lineup for Wednesday's game against the Orioles.

    Biggio will take a seat after he went 6-for-20 with three extra-base hits, four walks, three runs and two RBI while starting in each of the Jays' last six games. The 27-year-old has looked far better with Toronto following his May 26 call-up from Triple-A than he did earlier in the campaign, but he still looks to be stuck in a utility role with Vladimir Guerrero, Santiago Espinal, Bo Bichette and Matt Chapman locked in as the Jays' everyday infielders.

  • Blue Jays' Cavan Biggio: Collects fifth straight start

    Biggio will start at second base and bat ninth in Monday's game against the Orioles.

    Biggio will stay in the lineup for a fifth straight game after going 5-for-14 with two doubles, three walks, two runs and one RBI across the previous four contests. His increased playing time has coincided with Matt Chapman (wrist) missing three consecutive contests, so Biggio could be pushed into more of a utility role if Chapman is able to avoid a trip to the injured list.

  • Blue Jays' Cavan Biggio: On bench for third straight

    Biggio is out of the lineup for Tuesday's game against the Royals.

    Biggio logged eight starts in nine games following his promotion from Triple-A Buffalo on May 26, but he'll be taking a seat Tuesday for the third contest in a row. With Vladimir Guerrero and Matt Chapman established as the everyday starters at the two corner-infield spots and with Santiago Espinal having rebuilt some job security as the Blue Jays' primary second baseman by homering in back-to-back games, Biggio doesn't have a clear path to regular at-bats at any spot.

  • Blue Jays' Cavan Biggio: Garners fourth straight start

    Biggio will start at first base and bat sixth in Sunday's game against the Angels.

    He'll make his fourth consecutive start at his third different position, this time filling in at first base while Vladimir Guerrero contends with a sore wrist. Biggio, who has gone 2-for-8 with a double, a walk, an RBI, a run and a stolen base in his first three starts following his call-up from Triple-A Buffalo, will likely move into a utility role if Guerrero's wrist issue proves to be a short-term concern.

  • Blue Jays' Cavan Biggio: Called up by Blue Jays

    Biggio was recalled from Triple-A Buffalo on Thursday.

    Biggio missed several weeks in late April and early May while on the COVID-19 injured list, and he was sent to the minors after clearing the league's health and safety protocols. The 27-year-old has played in 10 games at Buffalo, and he's hit .276 with three doubles, nine runs, three RBI and two stolen bases. Biggio will be available for Thursday's series opener against the Angels, but it seems as though he'll serve mainly in a depth role since Santiago Espinal has performed well as the primary second baseman.

  • Blue Jays' Cavan Biggio: Activated and optioned

    Biggio was activated from the COVID-19 injured list Monday and optioned to Triple-A Buffalo.

    Biggio hit just .043/.214/.043 in 13 games prior to his absence. With Santiago Espinal emerging as an everyday second baseman, Biggio no longer has a starting spot available, though it's still somewhat surprising that his defensive versatility didn't earn him a bench role. It may take an injury ahead of him for Biggio to return to the big leagues.
