July 6th Blue Jays Minor League Recap: Brito pushing for a return to Toronto

Join Jays From The Couch Every Morning For Your Toronto Blue Jays Minor League Recap as well as Bichette and Conine Updates

 

The Blue Jays minor league system went 6 and 2.

 

I am almost back from vacation; unfortunately, our flight back to Toronto was expected for this morning but is now delayed until tomorrow. This might sound great but after two weeks, I just want to get back to my own stuff, my regular routine, and be able to watch some baseball without severe buffering. That said, I’ve enjoyed my vacation. It’s been very relaxing with lots of fun and lots of sun.

Top Performers:

Player of the Day

Saturday, July 6th POD goes to Socrates Brito

The 26-yr-old outfield continues to make his case for a return to the majors, collecting three doubles in five at-bats for the Buffalo Bisons. Brito played LF and batted 2nd for the Herd.

 

Brito grounded out in the 1st inning but doubled (11) in the 3rd inning to score Alen Hanson from 2nd base to give Buffalo a 1 to 0 lead. Socrates Brito scored one batter later when Patrick Kivlehan hit a two-run single.

 

The native of Azua, DR, hit his 12th double in the 5th inning but was stranded. In the 8th inning, Brito leadoff with his 13th double and scored on a Patrick Kivlehan single to give the Herd a 4 to 1 lead.

 

Brito struck out in the 9th to end his day at the plate. He has pushed his batting average to .298, batting .316 over his last 10 games. He has 28 runs scored, 3 triples, 8HR, 39RBI, and a .852OPS in 48 Triple-A games.

 

 

The Bo Bichette and Griffin Conine Show

 

Bo Bichette had another big game with two singles, a double, a run scored, and strike out in 5 at-bats. He is batting .319 in a Bisons uniform.

 

Griffin Conine hit a solo home run, walked, scored 2 runs, and struck out twice in 4 at-bats. Conine is batting .342 for the Lugnuts.
