The former Auburn shortstop is hitting .350 with 11 home runs, 19 doubles and a .977 OPS in 60 games for the Diamondback’s Double-A affiliate the Amarillo Sod Poodles. He has also stolen 21 bases and driven in 43 runs.
Bliss has started to split time at both shortstop and second base, a position that he may wind up at due to his 5-foot-6 and 165 pound frame.
He started 134 games for Auburn from 2019-21, batting .328, with 20 home runs and 99 RBI. He is just the fourth two-time All-America in program history.
Bliss is the Diamondback’s No. 29 prospect according to MLB.com and is expected to make his MLB debut during the 2024 season.
The game will take place Saturday, July 8, at 7 p.m. ET at Seattle’s T-Mobile Park. It will be seven innings and can be seen exclusively on Peacock and SiriusXM.
