Blue Jays trade Cavan Biggio to the Dodgers

Cavan Biggio’s time in Toronto has come to an end.

After six years with the Toronto Blue Jays, the team announced on Wednesday morning that Biggio had been traded to the Los Angeles Dodgers for minor league pitcher Braydon Fisher.

Biggio was designated for assignment last Friday when the Blue Jays called up Spencer Horwitz from Triple-A Buffalo.

Biggio was selected in the 5th round of the 2016 MLB draft out of the University of Notre Dame. From there he spent four years in the Blue Jays’ farm system, making his big league debut on May 24, 2019 at the age of 24. Biggio made his debut the same year that both Bo Bichette and Vladimir Guerrero Jr. also made their MLB debuts for the Blue Jays.

Biggio, now 29, has taken on the role of a utility player, having played every position except pitcher and catcher. Over his six seasons in Toronto, Biggio accumulated a career batting average of .227, an OPS of .725 (OPS of .343, SLG of .382), along with 48 homers, 176 RBI and a career OPS+ of 101.

This year, Biggio was batting just .200 with a .614 OPS, while getting minimal playing time in Toronto.

As for the player coming in return, Braydon Fisher is a RHP who was drafted in the 4th round of the 2018 MLB draft. Fisher, 23, has spent five seasons in the Dodgers’ farm system. In 2024, he’s posted a 5.68 ERA with a WHIP of 1.78, along with 15 walks and 30 strikeouts across 19 innings (15 relief appearances) for Double-A Tulsa and Triple-A Oklahoma City.

As for Biggio, it looks as if the Dodgers will also be using him in a utility role. Biggio has one more year left on his contract, as he will not hit free agency until after the 2025 season.
