WTM’s PLAYER PROFILE

Bissonette was a four-year starter at Baylor.  He didn’t put up big offensive numbers.  He had an OPS of .678 and .692 as a freshman and sophomore.  His best year came as a junior, when he hit 269/374/440.  His power fell off as a senior, as he hit 273/358/404, for some of the weaker numbers on the team.  He attempted only one steal, so he doesn’t seem to be a speedster.  He signed quickly.

2019
R+:  266/343/356, 188 AB, 13 2B, 2 3B, 20 BB, 28 K, 6-8 SB

Bissonette was the regular second baseman at Bristol.  He had a solid season at the plate, with good plate discipline.  Defensively, he was very steady, committing only one error in 45 starts at second.

Bissonette should at least be in the mix for the second base job at Greensboro in 2020, as nobody at West Virginia distinguished himself.
