Guerrero went 0-for-3 with a walk Sunday in the Blue Jays' 3-2 loss to the Reds. Since smacking his seventh home run of the season May 5, Guerrero has gone without an extra-base hit, but a 15-game hitting streak from May 2 through May 18 at least allowed him to bring value for fantasy managers in the batting-average category. He wasn't able to keep up that pace in the Blue Jays' weekend series with Cincinnati, however, as he finished the three-game slate with an 0-for-11 mark at the plate. Now sitting on a .262/.347/.434 slash line for the season, the struggling Guerrero could be in line for a day off in the near future.
Guerrero went 1-for-2 with a two-run home run and two runs scored Thursday against the Guardians. Guerrero took Aaron Civale yard in the first inning to record his seventh home run of the season. He has gone yard only twice in his last 18 starts, and he has just five extra-base hits in that span. Despite the slow stretch, Guerrero still has an impressive .290/.364/.559 line on the season to go along with 14 runs scored and 19 RBI across 107 plate appearances.
Guerrero went 1-for-5 with a three-run homer in Friday's 11-7 loss to Houston. Guerrero had a day off Thursday with a minor foot issue but he looked plenty healthy Friday, launching a three-run shot off Jose Urquidy in the third inning. The 23-year-old slugger is slashing .301/.369/.575 with six homers and 16 RBI through 84 plate appearances. He was 10-for-38 (.263) without a home run in his previous 11 contests.
Guerrero (foot) is starting at first base and batting third Friday against the Astros. The 23-year-old sat out Thursday's series opener after fouling a pitch off his right foot Wednesday against the Red Sox, but his absence will be limited to just one game, as expected. Guerrero initially played through the injury and had X-rays come back negative, so there shouldn't be any lingering concern now that he's retaking the field.
Guerrero (foot) is expected to be available for Friday's game against the Astros, Scott Mitchell of TSN.ca reports. Manager Charlie Montoyo said Guerrero was set to pinch hit late in Thursday's win over the Red Sox, but he didn't end up appearing in the game. However, he received treatment Thursday after fouling a ball off his right foot Wednesday, so he's expected to be available following a one-game absence.
