Son of former player Vladimir Guerrero. He signed as a 16 year old in 2015 with the Jays. Vlad JR has shown that he is ready to take it to the big stage and help the Jays be a contender in the American League East. He could bolster a lineup in need of a spark. Toronto is in no rush to put this kid to the majors and should nurture the young talent.
Vlad JR spent most of his 2018 campaign with the Double AA affiliate the New Hampshire Fisher Cats posting 14 homers and 60 RBI’s in sixty games. Later that season he got promoted to play for the Buffalo Bisons, hitting 6 home runs and 16 RBI’s in just thirty games. I’d say those stats are good for a 19 year old. Remember, he’s just coming through the minors and learining how to be a professional. Vlad obviously has his families support and blessing.
Toronto will have a bright future with this kid. He will be playing the hot corner for years to come. I could see him being a future MVP of the league. He could be the player to start the turnaround for the Blue Jays and get them back into contention for the playoffs. He could be “the guy” to get them to a world series for the first time since 1993. One player won’t change the whole team but Vlad can make a big splash to help the organization. Toronto should be happy he’s not going against them with any other MLB teams that visit the Rogers Center. Look up Toronto you have a great player coming to you very soon.
