The Toronto Blue Jays begin a four-game interleague series with the Atlanta Braves Monday, and Joe Biagini is already fretting about something he’ll have to do during his scheduled start in Atlanta Wednesday.

The reliever-turned-starter is going to have to swing a bat in the majors for the first time.

“I can’t imagine it’s going to go very well,” Biagini jokingly told Jeff Blair and Kevin Barker on Baseball Central Monday.

As a way to cope with this unfamiliar endeavour, Biagini might take a unique approach to his plate appearances.

“I think I’m going to draw my own on-deck circle,” he said. “That’s part of the plan and it’s probably going to be behind the dugout somewhere. I’m thinking about bringing a glove up there instead of a bat just in case.”

Joe Biagini shows intriguing potential as a starter

  Joe Biagini shows intriguing potential as a starter When you think about it, the Toronto Blue Jays asked a lot of Joe Biagini Sunday. Two months after they decided to stop experimenting with Biagini as a starter, they gave him all of two days notice and asked him to start a big-league game for the first time in his career. Sure, Biagini was stretched out in spring training, but that was months ago. Leading up to the start, Blue Jays manager John Gibbons said he’d be thrilled if he could get four innings from the former Rule 5 pick. Given the state of the Blue Jays’ rotation, they had to take what they could get.

I’ll go a little more into those flaws a bit later, and for now, let’s shift to focusing on what Biagini does have going for him. Have a secondary pitch that you can trust to miss bats . It ’ s very basic and not a one-size-fits-all, but you’ll quickly find that the pitchers that struggle most fail to tick all three boxes

Joe Biagini was tagged for three runs in 3 1/3 innings by the Braves on Tuesday. Biagini struck out five and walked none, so it wasn' t all bad. The right-hander looked great by all accounts. He said afterwards, "I thought it went really well . I'm ready to rock.

If John Gibbons gives him the signal to bunt?

“I’ll put on my bunting face and I’ll go out there and stand near the plate and make it happen.”

Biagini’s only real professional experience as a batter was in 2015 when he had 20 at-bats in 23 games with San Francisco Giants’ double-A affiliate, the Richmond Flying Squirrels.

He had two hits for a .100/.182/.100 batting line.

“I had a brief little moment of shining brilliance in double-A and then before that it hasn’t been for a while,” Biagini said of his history swinging the lumber.

The 26-year-old righty has an ERA of 2.28 in 16 appearances, including two starts, for the Blue Jays in 2017.

He received a standing ovation after his most recent outing, a start in which he threw five scoreless innings against the Seattle Mariners.
