Blue Jays' Vladimir Guerrero Jr.: Reassigned to minors
Guerrero (oblique) was reassigned to minor-league camp Thursday, Ben Nicholson-Smith of Sportsnet.ca reports.
He was already sidelined with a Grade 1 oblique strain, so this move doesn't really change anything for Guerrero in the short term or the long term. If the original three-week recovery timetable holds, Guerrero should be good to go for the start of the minor-league season. The expectation is that he will still be promoted by the Blue Jays once he has his timing down at Triple-A and the team has gained a seventh year of control. A mid-to-late April promotion to the big leagues seems likely if he avoids setbacks in his recovery.
