Astros urged to pursue son of former Houston all-time great

Every true Houston Astros fan knows the name Craig Biggio. He is one of the franchise’s best players and an MLB legend. Now, his son is currently playing in the league.

Cavan Biggio has played his entire MLB career so far with the Toronto Blue Jays, but things have changed.

In a recent move by the Blue Jays, Biggio was designated for assignment. He will be looking for a new franchise to land with. Why shouldn’t it be the Astros?

While the connection to an all-time franchise makes this a great story, it’s not the only reason. Biggio has shown signs of talent throughout his young MLB career. In the midst of a difficult season, Houston would be wise to make the decision to see what it can do.

FanSided’s John Buhler urges the Astros to bring Biggio to Houston. Here’s what he had to say about the idea.

“However, a change of scenery could be huge for Biggio. He may be playing in his home country and hometown, but as good as that sounds, his last name carries a lot of weight in H-Town because of his father. “With Father’s Day coming up, I would love nothing more than for Houston to land Biggio and have him go on Sunday. “

Biggio had a rough start to the 2024 MLB season. In the 44 games he played with Toronto, he hit just .200 and hit two home runs to go along with nine RBIs. Those aren’t numbers that make anyone pursue it aggressively.

However, he is 29 years old and has a little more time to turn things around. A fresh start and a change of scenery might be just what the doctor ordered.

Other players left a previous team and just finding a new place to play took their game to another level. This may or may not be the case for Biggio. But there is no risk in acting in his place.

At the very least, the Astros would have a cool story on their hands. Fans are reportedly excited about this move. It makes sense to try.

It will be interesting to see where Biggio lands once all is said and done. Houston may not generate any interest, but we can still hope for such a great storyline.
