FORT MYERS, Fla.–Shortstop Bo Bichette had two home runs and went 3-for-5 as the Toronto Blue Jays routed the Minnesota Twins 10-1 yesterday afternoon in Grapefruit League action.
First baseman Rowdy Tellez also had two homers–a three-run shot in the first inning and a two-run blast in the sixth–for the Jays (9-6).
Ryan Borucki struck out three and gave up five hits over five scoreless innings as Toronto’s starter.
First baseman Tyler Austin had three hits and an RBI for Minnesota (8-7).
Bichette is one of the Jays’ top prospects and his solid performance was a welcome relief after it was announced that Vladimir Guerrero Jr., considered the top minor-leaguer in baseball, would miss the next three weeks.
Toronto general manager Ross Atkins told media before the game that Guerrero was strained his left oblique in a game against the Pittsburgh Pirates on Friday.
