Monday, July 16th POD goes to Reese McGuire

 

The former 1st round selection went 2-for-3 with a run scored and a grand slam and a walk. He picked up a 2-out single in the 2nd inning and walked in the 4th inning but was left stranded both times.

With 2 runs already across the plate in the 7th inning, Reese McGuire stepped to the plate with nobody out and the bases juiced. McGuire took a pair of close pitches low in the zone for ball 1 and 2. He swung at the high strike and took a pitch almost straight down the middle before sending the 5th pitch of the AB to right field and over the wall for the grand slam. Bisons up 8 to 1.

 

Overall, the 23-yr-old catcher is batting .243 with three doubles, a pair of triples, and 5 home runs. He has socred 19 runs and driven in 25 while holding a .336 OBP across 63 games.

 

Bo and Vlad Show

 

Vladimir Guerrero Jr. hit a double in three at-bats with a run scored and a strikeout.

 

Bo Bichette played in the Futures Game and will likely get the entire All-Star week off.

Lover of all things Toronto Blue Jays. Blue Jays MiLB fanatic. I strive for average while stumbling onto above average. Rogers isn’t cheap. Baseball is a business. Your right, but I’m more right.
