Blue Jays' Cavan Biggio: First career start at 3B
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Biggio is getting his first big-league start at third base while leading off Sunday against the Mets.

He has played all three outfield spots this season in addition to second base and now third base. Travis Shaw is taking a seat in this one, and it's possible Biggio will get some more starts at third with Jonathan Villar starting at second base going forward.

Blue Jays' Cavan Biggio: Not starting Saturday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Biggio isn't in Saturday's lineup against the Red Sox.

Biggio will get a day off following Friday's doubleheader, in which he went 2-for-8 with a run and three strikeouts. Joe Panik will start at second base in his absence.

Blue Jays' Cavan Biggio: On base three times in win
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Biggio went 1-for-3 with two walks, a double and two runs scored in Thursday's extra-inning win over the Red Sox.

The 25-year-old continues to thrive atop the order for the Jays. Since the beginning of August, Biggio is slashing .269/.402/.463 through 29 games with four homers, three steals, 15 RBI and 24 runs.

Blue Jays' Cavan Biggio: Knocks in pair
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Biggio went 2-for-4 with two hits and two RBI on Saturday against Baltimore.

Biggio came to bat with runners on second and third in the fourth inning and delivered with a two-run single. He's logged at least one hit in 13 of his last 16 games, driving in 10 and scoring 17 runs in that span. Overall, he's maintained a .274/.397/.487 line across 142 plate appearances.

Blue Jays' Cavan Biggio: Notches two more hits
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Biggio went 2-for-4 with a double, an RBI and two runs scored Monday against the Rays.

Biggio provided Toronto with an insurance run in the top of the ninth inning, coming through with an RBI double to right field. He's now reached base safely in 17 straight games, batting .350 with 11 extra-base hits and 11 RBI over that stretch.

Blue Jays' Cavan Biggio: On-base streak at 15 games
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Biggio went 1-for-3 with two walks, an RBI and a stolen base in Saturday's 2-1 extra-inning loss to the Rays.

It's almost impossible to keep the 25-year-old off the basepaths right now. Biggio has reached base in 15 straight games, hitting .353 (18-for-51) while also drawing 15 walks and getting hit by a pitch twice, and the torrid stretch has pushed his slash line on the season to .272/.402/.522.

Blue Jays' Cavan Biggio: Three hits in Friday's win
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Biggio went 3-for-3 with a walk, a double, two runs scored and an RBI in Friday's extra-inning win over the Rays.

Inexplicably dropped to eighth in the batting order by manager Charlie Montoyo, Biggio didn't let the change bother him as he extended his on-base streak to 14 games with another stellar performance. Over that stretch, the 25-year-old is slashing an incredible .354/.508/.708 with four homers, two steals, nine RBI and 16 runs, and it shouldn't be long before he's back at the top of the lineup where he belongs.

Blue Jays' Cavan Biggio: Reaches base three times
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Biggio went 2-for-3 with a double, an RBI and a walk in the 3-2 win over the Phillies in Game 1 of Thursday's doubleheader.

Biggio came through with a huge two-out hit in the sixth, driving in Billy McKinney with a double to tie the game at two. The Blue Jays went on to win the seven-inning game on a walkoff single by Lourdes Gurriel. Biggio now has 13 RBI and is slashing a solid .250/.364/.512 on the season.

Blue Jays' Cavan Biggio: Getting first day off
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

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

The Blue Jays are wrapping up their series in Baltimore with a day game after a night game and a lefty (Tommy Milone) is on the mound for the Orioles, so Toronto skipper Charlie Montoyo decided it was a good time to give the lefty-hitting Biggio his first day off of the season. Brandon Drury will cover the keystone in place of Biggio, who is slashing .228/.344/.481 with six home runs and three steals through 93 plate appearances.

Blue Jays' Cavan Biggio: Socks sixth homer
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Biggio went 3-for-5 with a homer, two runs scored and three RBI in Monday's 7-2 win over the Orioles.

The top of the Toronto order carried the offense, as Biggio and No. 2 hitter Randal Grichuk combined for all seven RBI. Biggio is only hitting .234 on the season, but he's bolstered his fantasy value with six homers, three steals, 12 RBI and 14 runs through 19 games.

Blue Jays' Cavan Biggio: Swats fifth homer
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Biggio went 1-for-2 with a walk, a solo home run and two additional runs scored in Friday's win over the Rays.

The 25-year-old is up to five homers on the year, with three of them coming in the last week. Biggio's .206/.324/.460 slash line through 16 games is less impressive, but his power and patience profile (with a little bit of speed -- he has three steals in three attempts) still gives him solid fantasy value in most formats.

Blue Jays' Cavan Biggio: Stuffs stat sheet
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Biggio went 2-for-4 with a double, a run, an RBI, a stolen base and a walk in Tuesday's extra-inning win over the Marlins.

Biggio has largely struggled since going 5-for-13 in the opening series of the season, but he's picked up his play over the past four games, going 5-for-15 with two homers, four runs, three RBI and four walks.

Blue Jays' Cavan Biggio: Records fourth homer
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Biggio went 1-for-3 with a solo home run and a walk Sunday against the Red Sox.

Biggio took Nate Eovaldi deep in the third inning for his second home run of team's series against the Red Sox. Already at four long balls on the season, Biggio has shown improved power early on by maintaining a .231 ISO. He's struggled otherwise, hitting just .192/.276/.423 through 58 plate appearances, but also has a manageable 21 percent strikeout rate.

Blue Jays' Cavan Biggio: Swats third homer
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Biggio went 2-for-4 with a walk, a solo home run and a second run scored in Friday's 5-3 loss to the Red Sox.

Jays manager Charlie Montoyo flipped Biggio and Bo Bichette at the top of the batting order, and the move paid immediate dividends when Biggio led off the game with his third homer of the season. The 25-year-old's patience should make him a good fit in the leadoff spot, but as yet Biggio hasn't really gotten rolling, slashing .200/.265/.400 through 11 games.

Blue Jays' Cavan Biggio: Tallies second homer
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Biggio went 1-for-5 with a solo home run Thursday against the Nationals.

Biggio took Javy Guerra deep in the in the seventh inning, pulling an offering just over the right-field wall. It was his second home run of the season, but first since Opening Day. Biggio has struggled to get going to this point in the campaign, reaching base just eight times in first 32 plate appearances.

Blue Jays' Cavan Biggio: Blasts Opening Day home run
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Biggio went 2-for-5 with a three-run home run, two runs and three strikeouts in Friday's win against the Rays.

After generating some production in summer camp, Biggio translated his results to regular-season action. He put the Blue Jays ahead with a three-run home run in the fifth inning that forced Rays starter Charlie Morton out of the game. The 25-year-old hit .234/.364/.429 with 16 home runs, 48 RBI and 14 stolen bases over 100 games in his rookie season with the Blue Jays last season.

Blue Jays' Cavan Biggio: Swats homer in intrasquad game
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Biggio launched a two-run home run off reliever Justin Miller during Wednesday's intrasquad game, Shi Davidi of Sportsnet.ca reports.

Biggio didn't hit a home run in his 12 games during spring training, so it had to feel good for him to leave the yard before the regular season gets underway next week. The 25-year-old demonstrated a patient eye at the plate as a rookie (16.7 percent walk rate), which should lock him into a premium spot in the lineup throughout the season. While his plate discipline stands out as his top skill, Biggio showcased a fantasy-friendly blend of power and speed in 2019, slugging 16 home runs and adding 14 steals in only 429 plate appearances. Even in a 60-game season, Biggio should have an outside shot at reaching double figures in both categories again if he stays healthy.

Blue Jays' Cavan Biggio: Could move around diamond
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Biggio got the start in center field during Saturday's Grapefruit League game, Keegan Matheson of MLB.com reports.

While the 24-year-old is still locked in as the Jays' starting second baseman, Biggio could find himself seeing occasional action in center or at first base depending on who else is resting or slotted in at DH during any particular game. While this might eventually result in extra position eligibility down the road in fantasy leagues with lower qualification thresholds, the most important takeaway is that manager Charlie Montoya sees Biggio as a player he needs to keep in the lineup as much as possible.

Blue Jays' Cavan Biggio: Likely No. 2 hitter
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Blue Jays manager Charlie Montoyo said Sunday that he envisions Biggio serving as the team's No. 2 hitter this season, Hazel Mae of Sportsnet reports.

The lefty-hitting Biggio could eventually move down in the order against southpaws, but he'll likely be given a full-time look out of the two hole -- in between Bo Bichette and Vlad Guerrero Jr. -- at least to begin the season after he slashed a credible .237/.368/.373 (104 wRC+) in 145 plate appearances versus same-handed pitching in 2019. Biggio supplied 16 home runs and 14 steals in just 100 games with Toronto as a rookie and could push for a 20-20 season if he gets 600 plate appearances in 2020.

Blue Jays' Cavan Biggio: On-base machine in win
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Biggio went 1-for-3 with a two-run home run, three walks and an additional run Monday in the Blue Jays' 11-10 win over the Orioles in 15 innings.

The rookie extended his hitting streak to a career-best seven games, lifting his season average from .221 to .237 during that stretch. Biggio's 28.4 percent strikeout rate will make it difficult for him to uphold a useful batting average, but his blend of power and speed and willingness to work pitch counts and take walks make him an ideal fit near the top of the Toronto lineup.
