Forget their current fourth spot in the standings: the Toronto Blue Jays are 30-27, competing in the best division in baseball and looking to find some consistency to start challenging for the top spot.
They have many stars on the position player side: Vladimir Guerrero Jr., George Springer, Alejandro Kirk, Matt Chapman, and others.
Bo Bichette, however, has been the most consistent hitter in the lineup in the last three years, if we are being honest.
If we focus on 2023, however, he still earns an incredible grade.
In fact, after leading the AL in hits in 2021 and 2022, he is now pacing the entire league with 81.
He projects to surpass 200 for the first time in his career.
Bichette has been particularly hot in his last 11 games.
Here are some numbers that prove it.
“Bo Bichette over his last 11 games: .388 AVG (19-49 AB), .400 OBP, 5 XBH (3 HR), 9 RBI, 1.033 OPS. The @BlueJays star leads MLB with 81 hits!” MLB Now tweeted.

For the year, he is up to a .901 OPS, 12 home runs, 34 runs, 39 RBI, and two stolen bases.
He is a steady performer who also happens to boast a solid glove at the infield’s most difficult position.
With a .332/.368/.533 slash line so far, this has the look of a career year for the reliable performer.
The next step for Bichette would be leading his Blue Jays to a deep playoff run.
He has played baseball in October but Toronto hasn’t advanced to the AL Championship Series in a while, before Bichette made his MLB debut.
