The players have been discussing it all spring and in summer camp, so the #BlueJays have decided to keep Dante Bichette on the coaching staff full time, I’m told.
He has been mentioned as a valuable resource by a number of hitters.

Mitchell reports that players have convinced him all spring and into summer camp and has been mentioned as a valuable resource by a number of hitters.
While Jays fans would be more familiar with the 22-year-old shortstop, it’s Dante who has the most impressive resume in MLB to date.
The elder Bichette had a 14-year career spent mostly with the Colorado Rockies. He was a four-time All-Star and the National League’s leading home hitter in 1995.
The Jays will continue their streak at Tampa Bay on Saturday afternoon.
