In 2019, Bo Bichette made his major league debut. He is Dante Bichette’s son and Dante Bichette Jr.’s sibling.
The Toronto Blue Jays selected Bichette in the second round of the 2016 amateur draft, with their third pick (after T.J. Zeuch and J.B. Woodman) and the 66th overall pick.
He hit .427/.451/.732 with 21 runs scored and 36 RBI in 22 games with the GCL Blue Jays, while also fielding .983 in 16 games at shortstop and 1.000 in 6 games at second base.
He was ranked the fourth-best prospect in the Gulf Coast League by Baseball America, behind Mickey Moniak, Matt Manning, and Juan Soto, and the eighth-best prospect in Toronto, between Zeuch and Jon Harris.
In the 2017 World Baseball Classic Qualifiers, he was a member of the Brazilian national squad alongside his brother (their mother is a Brazilian native).
He went 1 for 8 with 3 strikeouts and 2 runs in his first two games at short (both against Pakistan). In the third game, he was replaced by Leonardo Reginatto, who had moved over from third base.
Bichette pinch-hit for Irait Chirino and stayed in at shortstop after Reginatto committed a key two-run mistake (Reginatto moving to third base and Dante Jr. from third to left field to replace Chirino).
He went 0 for 3 with two more strikeouts and five runners on base as Brazil was eliminated by Great Britain, 4-3.
