Biggio went 3-for-5 with two home runs, a double and five RBI for Double-A New Hampshire in its 14-3 victory Wednesday over Richmond.
It's the first multi-homer game as a professional for Biggio, whose 23 long balls tie Akron's Bradley Bradley for tops in the Eastern League. Biggio is also pacing the circuit with a .397 on-base percentage following the graduation of teammate Vladimir Guerrero Jr. to Triple-A Syracuse, with a whopping 19.3 percent walk rate buoying the second baseman in that category. It likely won't be long until Biggio joins Guerrero at Syracuse in search of a stiffer challenge.
Biggio went 1-for-3 with a walk and an RBI for Double-A New Hampshire in its 3-1 win over Portland on Sunday.
Biggio is hitting just .200 over his last 13 games, but he has made himself a tough out by walking in more than a quarter of his plate appearances over that span. The second baseman's impressive power production this season -- 19 home runs and 37 extra-base hits in 86 games -- has enhanced his appeal in dynasty leagues, but it's Biggio's patient approach at the plate that could be the key to eventual success in the big leagues. He has posted walk rates above 10 percent at each stop of the minors, highlighted by a 19 percent mark at Double-A.
Biggio went 2-for-4 with a solo home run and a walk for Double-A New Hampshire in its 7-1 win over Hartford on Tuesday.
While the top two prospects in the Toronto organization, Vladimir Guerrero Jr. and Bo Bichette, have attracted most of the attention for New Hampshire this season, Biggio is yet another youngster with big-league bloodlines whose at-bats have quickly become appointment viewing. Biggio maintains a share of the Eastern League lead with 11 home runs on the campaign, with four of the long balls coming in his last six games. He has also paired the impressive power production with a 16.9 BB%, which has kept his on-base percentage at a robust .422. Considering he's almost three years older than Bichette and nearly four years older than Guerrero, Biggio remains a few tiers below the duo on prospect lists, but the 23-year-old second baseman has nonetheless improved his long-term outlook with his achievements thus far at Double-A.
Biggio homered in his third straight game Monday for Double-A New Hampshire and is now hitting .313/.414/.708 with four home runs and two steals in 48 at-bats.
The son of Craig Biggio often gets overshadowed by his teammates, Vladimir Guerrero Jr. and Bo Bichette, who are also sons of former big-league mashers. However, it has been the old man for the Fisher Cats (relatively) who has been turning heads of late. He lacks the type of upside and track record that Guerrero and Bichette boast, but is a legitimate prospect in his own right.
