Lansing Lugnuts shortstop Bo Bichette was named the Midwest League player of the month for June. Here is what Minor League Baseball wrote about him in its announcement Thursday:

Lansing Lugnuts (Blue Jays) shortstop Bo Bichette destroyed Midwest League pitching in June, leading the league in average (.421), hits (40), extra-base hits (16), total bases (63) and doubles (12). His 1.198 OPS was good for third in the league. For the year, his .383 average and 32 doubles lead all of professional baseball (including Major League Baseball). Bichette, 19, was selected by Toronto in the second round of the 2016 First-Year Player Draft out of Lakewood High School in St. Petersburg, Florida.

Through Wednesday, Bichette is batting .383 with 10 homers, 32 doubles, 26 walks, 12 stolen bases, 51 runs batted in, and 60 runs scored in 69 games with the Lugnuts this season.

Bichette is one of three current Midwest League players on the rosters for Sunday’s All-Star Futures Game at Marlins Park in Miami. You can read my post about that here.

    I saw on a Lugnuts video on instagram interviewing Bichette and saying that him and Vlad Guerrero Jr. were getting moved up after the futures game.

  2. I saw the reports of them getting promoted last night. I’m actually writing a post about that and other Midwest League news from yesterday right now!
