Rising sons give rebuilding Blue Jays reason for optimism

The Toronto Blue Jays feel good about four rising sons who made big strides in 2019 and figure to become lineup fixtures moving forward.

The pitching, however, remains a work in progress.

The Blue Jays went 67-95, six games worse than last year. It was Toronto’s first 90-loss season since 2004, and their poorest performance since a 95-loss showing in 1980.

One silver lining? Strong performances from four players with famous fathers, including two sons of Hall of Famers.

Craig, Cavan Biggio become second father-son duo to hit for the cycle in MLB

BALTIMORE – Rookie Cavan Biggio hit for the cycle, and the Toronto Blue Jays beat the Baltimore Orioles 8-5 on Tuesday night.

Biggio homered in the third, singled in the sixth, doubled in the eighth and tripled in the ninth. He drove in four runs and scored three times.

Biggio and his father, Craig, a Hall of Famer with the Houston Astros, are the second father-son duo in major league history to hit for the cycle, joining Daryle and Gary Ward.

Something to add to the notes on baseball families we’ve been compiling in another thread.

Reports: Jays to call up Biggio on Friday

The Toronto Blue Jays will call up second base prospect Cavan Biggio, son of Hall of Famer Craig Biggio, for the first time on Friday, multiple media outlets reported Thursday night.

Cavan Biggio, 24, is hitting .306 with six homers and 26 RBIs in 41 games with Triple-A Buffalo this season, easily his best campaign in three-plus years in the minor leagues since being drafted by Toronto in the fifth round in 2016.

His brothers, Wicklow, Kildare, Mayo, and Clare, were all unavailable for comment.
