For the 2017 Futures Game, Bo was picked to the United States team. He began the season with the Class A Midwest League’s Lansing Lugnuts, hitting .384 in 70 games with 10 home runs and 51 RBI.
He and teammate Vladimir Guerrero Jr., another second-generation talent, were the two Blue Jays representatives at the Futures Game, and both were promoted to the High A Dunedin Blue Jays of the Florida State League in time for their appearance.
He was picked to the United States team for the 2018 Futures Game once again, continuing his meteoric rise through the Blue Jays organization.
Bichette joined the Buffalo Bisons in 2019 as the league’s youngest player. Guerrero would have been younger if he hadn’t been injured to start the season, and the major league Blue Jays possessed pitcher Elvis Luciano, who had just turned 19, who was even younger than the two young prospects.
Bo had a fractured hand after getting hit by a pitch thrown by Hector Santiago of the Syracuse Mets on April 22nd, and was hitting .250 with 5 extra-base hits in his first 14 games.
After returning to the fold, he batted well, and by mid-July, there were reports in the press that he couldn’t understand why he was still in AAA when teammates Guerrero and Cavan Biggio had already been promoted to the big leagues and he had nothing left to prove in the minors.
On July 28th, one of the roadblocks to his call-up was eliminated when the Jays traded Eric Sogard to the Tampa Bay Rays, clearing a slot for an infielder.
