After an underwhelming start to his Arizona Fall League season, Cavan Biggio has elected to turn things around.
Toronto's No. 9 prospect rapped out a trio of singles and walked, driving in a run and scoring another, as Surprise topped Glendale, 10-1, on Tuesday at Camelback Ranch. It marked his first three-hit outing of the campaign.
