Toronto and Bissett sign a three-year contract.
Ben Nicholson-Smith of Sportsnet and Joel Sherman of the New York Post said on February 8 (Korean time) that Bo Bissett will sign a three-year contract with the Toronto Blue Jays.
According to local media, Toronto and Bisset agreed to sign a three-year contract to avoid salary adjustments. The exact details of the agreement are not yet known.
Bissett, which debuted in 2019, was the first to qualify for an annual salary adjustment application this year. And when the 2025 season ends, he gets FA qualification. This three-year contract covers all of Bissett’s remaining service time. Once the contract is official, Toronto will no longer have to negotiate over an annual salary until Bisset becomes a free agent.
Bisset, a shortstop born in 1998, is a “big leaguer second-generation top prospect,” named by Toronto in the second round of the 2016 rookie draft. Bisset, who made his debut in 2019, played in 393 games in four seasons and recorded .297/.340/.491 with 69 home runs, 239 RBIs and 46 stolen bases. 안전놀이터
In particular, Bisset, who started playing full-time from the 2021 season, played in 159 games for two consecutive years in the 2021-2022 season and won the American League most hits title for two consecutive years. It is a disadvantage that he has few walks, but he is a player with precision, long hitting power, and quick feet. In the 2021 season, he was selected as an All-Star and voted for MVP for the second consecutive year in 2021-2022.
Meanwhile, in the initial salary negotiations for the 2023 season, Bisset requested $7.5 million, and Toronto reportedly offered $5 million.
