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.
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.
Like a lot of players at the lower levels, Bissonette could run into a logjam at low class A.
