Guerrero went 3-for-5 with three runs scored and an RBI in Friday's 12-1 win over the Tigers. It's his first multi-hit performance since the All-Star break. Guerrero isn't living up to the massive hype that accompanied him to the majors, but the 20-year-old is still offering glimpses of his upside despite a tepid .245/.322/.391 slash line.
Guerrero is out of the lineup for Monday's game against the Red Sox. Following his star turn in the Home Run Derby, Guerrero wasn't able to carry the power display into the Jays' series against the Yankees over the weekend. Guerrero went 2-for-12 while starting all three games, with both of his hits being singles. Brandon Drury will spell the rookie at the hot corner.
Guerrero (illness) will start at third base and bat fifth Sunday against the Orioles. Guerrero was forced to exit Saturday's 8-1 early due to a stomach illness, but he apparently made enough progress overnight for the Blue Jays to give him the green light to play in their final game before the All-Star break. The rookie, who has gone just 5-for-29 at the dish over his last 10 games, will look to end the first half of a high note before taking part in the Home Run Derby on Monday in Cleveland.
Guerrero left Saturday's game against the Orioles with a stomach ache, Scott Mitchell of TSN.ca reports. Guerrero went 1-for-3 with a run scored before leaving late in the game. The severity of the illness isn't clear, but it wouldn't be surprising to see Guerrero sit Sunday in order to get a full five days of rest over the All-Star break.
Guerrero is not in the lineup for Thursday's game against the Red Sox. Brandon Drury is being rewarded for his three-hit effort Wednesday with a start at the hot corner. Manager Charlie Montoyo has been getting Guerrero occasional days off as the 20-year-old gets acclimated at the big-league level, and that will likely continue into the second half.
