David Bote continues to prove why he’s worthy of a roster spot year-round. Going even further, an everyday starter. Bote has been starring in place of Kris Bryant. He’s been doing everything he can to contribute.
Bote just hit his first career triple, knocking in two runs, Tuesday night in Kansas City:

That was one of the harder hit balls from Bote this year, 103.2 mph off the bat. He averages 96.3 mph, as unbelievably the hardest-hitting player in baseball.
Keep it up, David Bote!
