      Blue Jays' Vladimir Guerrero Jr.: Hits first Triple-A homer

      Vladimir Guerrero went 3-for-4 with a home run, double and two RBI for Triple-A Buffalo in its 6-1 win over Gwinnett on Wednesday.The home run was Guerrero's first with Buffalo, but his .682 slugging percentage at Triple-A is actually 11 points better than his mark at Double-A New Hampshire. As anticipated, the move to the International League hasn't presented much of a challenge for Guerrero, who has continued to torch opposing pitchers since returning from the patellar tendon injury that sidelined him for most of June. He sports an impressive 8:2 K:BB through 31 plate appearances at Triple-A and is doing his best to make a case for a promotion to the big leagues before the 2018 campaign comes to a close.

      Blue Jays' Vladimir Guerrero Jr.: Walks three times in Triple-A debut

      Vladimir Guerrero went 0-for-1 with three walks, two runs and an RBI in his debut Tuesday for Triple-A Buffalo in the affiliate's 11-8 loss to Lehigh Valley.There were about 4,000 more fans in attendance than usual at Coca-Cola Field in Buffalo in anticipation of Guerrero's debut, and the 19-year-old didn't disappoint. While he failed to provide any splashy highlights, the three-walk performance exemplifies Guerrero's top-notch plate discipline, which helped him deliver a .449 on-base percentage over 61 games at Double-A New Hampshire. There's little doubt at this point that Guerrero is big-league ready, but the third baseman may continue to marinate in the International League for the rest of the season with the non-contending Toronto Blue Jays perhaps motivated to delay the start of his MLB service clock until 2019.

      Blue Jays' Vladimir Guerrero Jr.: Set for Triple-A promotion

      Vladimir Guerrero will join Triple-A Buffalo on Tuesday, Hazel Mae of Sportsnet.ca reports.Guerrero was recently returned to the Double-A level after spending some time with High-A Dunedin following a knee injury that cost him over a month of time. The top prospect will get a chance to show off his skills at the highest level in the minors, though he's exhibited major-league readiness should Toronto elect to bring him up in September. Across 61 games at Double-A New Hampshire this season, he's slashed .402/.449/.671 with 14 home runs, 60 RBI and three stolen bases.

      Blue Jays' Vladimir Guerrero Jr.: Moves back to Eastern League

      Vladimir Guerrero went 1-for-4 with a two-run home run -- his 12th of the season -- in Double-A New Hampshire's 9-3 loss to Reading on Monday.Guerrero was initially assigned to High-A Dunedin after being activated from the 7-day disabled list July 17, but he returned to the Double-A squad two days later. The 19-year-old has picked up where he left off for New Hampshire prior to suffering a strained left kneecap, going 4-for-12 over his first three games back, which has actually lowered his season average to .406. Once he gets a little more action under his belt in the Eastern League, it's expected that Guerrero will move up to Triple-A Buffalo.

      Blue Jays' Vladimir Guerrero Jr.: Reinstated, sent to High-A

      Vladimir Guerrero (knee) was reinstated from the disabled list Tuesday and sent to High-A Dunedin.Guerrero had been rehabbing at the rookie-league level. He's no longer technically on a rehab assignment, though his time with Dunedin will effectively still be short, as he'd been dominating at Double-A New Hampshire and was expected to head to Triple-A once healthy. Expect to see him promoted back to his former level or Triple-A Buffalo in the near future.

      Blue Jays' Vladimir Guerrero Jr.: Rehabbing in GCL

      Vladimir Guerrero (knee) was added to the GCL Toronto Blue Jays' roster Friday to begin his rehab assignment, Sam Dykstra of MiLB.com reports.Guerrero has been out of action since early June after straining his patella tendon. He's expected to head to Triple-A Buffalo upon the completion of his rehab assignment, raising questions about a possible major-league callup before the end of the year. The 19-year-old phenom appears to be major-league ready after hitting an incredible .407/.457./667 in 53 games for Double-A New Hampshire, but with the Blue Jays sitting 15 games out of a playoff spot, the team may prefer to keep him down in order to earn an extra year of team control.

      Blue Jays' Vladimir Guerrero Jr.: Headed to Triple-A once healthy

      Vladimir Guerrero (strained patella tendon) will join Triple-A Buffalo once he is activated from the minor-league disabled list, Rob Longley of the Toronto Sun reports.This isn't surprising, as Guerrero was reportedly days away from a promotion to Triple-A when he suffered the injury in early June. He is almost completely recovered from his injury, upping his workload in Florida over the past couple weeks, so he could join the Bisons very shortly. Naturally, this move to the highest level of the minors will lead to questions about when Guerrero could get a callup to Toronto. Offensively, he is probably ready for the majors, but there are obviously a lot of factors at play that go well beyond his readiness on the field. The Toronto Blue Jays are barely hanging around the wild-card race, and if they were willing to keep him at Double-A for 53 games while he was over 100 percent better (203 wRC+) than the average hitter in the Eastern League, it may be wishful thinking to expect them to quickly promote him from Triple-A to the big leagues, even if he gets off to an excellent start.

      Blue Jays' Vladimir Guerrero Jr.: Ahead of schedule

      Vladimir Guerrero (strained patella tendon) is "doing great" in his rehab and is ahead of schedule by a day or two, according to general manager Ross Atkins, Ben Nicholson-Smith of Sportsnet.ca reports.He last played June 6 and was set to miss at least four weeks, so it sounds like he could return in early July if this timetable is accurate. Once healthy, Guerrero will likely be promoted to Triple-A in relatively short order, but this injury severely hurts his chances of reaching the majors this season.

      Blue Jays' Vladimir Guerrero Jr.: Out four weeks with strained kneecap

      Vladimir Guerrero was diagnosed with a strained left patella tendon Sunday after undergoing a battery of tests, John Lott of The Athletic Toronto reports. The Toronto Blue Jays plan to reevaluate Guerrero in four weeks.With the Blue Jays already beginning to fade from the playoff picture and Guerrero now on the shelf for at least the next month, it's looking increasingly unlikely that the third baseman will earn a promotion to the big club in 2018. Given the Blue Jays' stated intent of managing the 19-year-old "conservatively," it wouldn't be surprising if he didn't return to action at Double-A New Hampshire until August, even if he's cleared to resume baseball activities once the four-week rest period ends. It's an unfortunate setback for arguably the top prospect in all of the minors, who earned that distinction by slashing .407/.457/.667 with nearly as many walks (20) as strikeouts (21) in 235 plate appearances in the Eastern League.

      Blue Jays' Vladimir Guerrero Jr.: Hits DL with leg injury

      Vladimir Guerrero (leg) was placed on the 7-day minor-league disabled list Thursday, Rob Longley of the Toronto Sun reports.Guerrero suffered what appeared to be some sort of hamstring injury during Wednesday's game, though the team has refrained from stating anything specific outside of calling it a leg injury. Toronto director of player development Gil Kim stated that the organization is just being cautious with this move, and that Guerrero isn't expected to be dealing with "anything serious." Expect an update on the 19-year-old's condition in the coming days after he gets some rest.
