Dante Bichette Jr.
The Yankees have passed the Memorial Day marker in striking distance of the surprising frontrunner, Toronto. And now it’s time to start thinking about the trading deadline.
Yankees’ prospect Dante Bichette Jr. had an outstanding first year in professional baseball as he completed an MVP season in the Gulf Coast League and was promoted to Single-A Staten Island. He was part of two championship winning teams and Dante’s future looks very bright.
ichette has agreed to a contract with the New York Yankees, who assigned their top draft pick and former Florida prep star to the club’s rookie-level team in Tampa.
Yankees manager Joe Girardi got to know Dante Bichette Jr. long before New York selected him with its first pick in the baseball draft. Now, Girardi could get a chance to guide the slugging 18-year-old as a budding big league ballplayer.
The son of Dante Bichette was among the players selected during the MLB draft’s first day. And one day he just might make his debut in the Bronx.
