      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.

      Blue Jays' Vladimir Guerrero Jr.: Exits Wednesday with leg injury

      Vladimir Guerrero exited Double-A New Hampshire's game Wednesday against Akron due to an apparent leg injury, Keegan Matheson of MLB.com reports.Matheson relays that Guerrero didn't look 100 percent while running to first base on an infield single and appeared to be in pain as he advanced to second base on the next play. The top prospect had just returned Tuesday from a one-game absence on account of a leg injury, so it appears he may have aggravated the issue. Even if the setback isn't deemed significant, it wouldn't be surprising if Guerrero was held out for more than one day this time around.

      Blue Jays' Vladimir Guerrero Jr.: Cleared to play

      Vladimir Guerrero (leg) is in the lineup Tuesday for Double-A New Hampshire, Ben Nicholson-Smith of Sportsnet.ca reportsGuerrero exited the nightcap of Saturday's doubleheader after an awkward play at first base, but he appears to be just fine. He'll look to continue tearing it up at Double-A, as he's hitting an outstanding .409 with 11 home runs and 54 RBI through 51 games. Jon Morosi of MLB Network reported earlier Tuesday that the Toronto Blue Jays are considering promoting Guerrero to Triple-A within the next month.

      Blue Jays' Vladimir Guerrero Jr.: Exits minor-league game with injury

      Vladimir Guerrero left the second game of Double-A New Hampshire doubleheader Saturday in the seventh inning after stepping on first base awkwardly, Shi Davidi of Sportsnet.ca reports.Fortunately, the team doesn't consider the injury to be a major concern, but the Toronto Blue Jays understandably wanted to play it safe with the prized prospect, who went 2-for-7 in the twin bill prior to exiting the contest in the final frame.

      Blue Jays' Vladimir Guerrero Jr.: Hits walkoff blast in 4-for-4 effort

      Vladimir Guerrero went 4-for-4 with a walkoff three-run home run for Double-A New Hampshire in its 6-5 win over Binghamton in Game 1 of a doubleheader Sunday. He added an RBI single and stolen base in the nightcap.Just when it seemed Guerrero couldn't possibly enhance his sterling resume any further, he added to his legend with another monster showing in the first game of the twin bill, highlighted by the clutch long ball in the final inning. Guerrero continues to pace the Eastern League in batting average (.421), OPS (1.169) and total bases (106), all while being exceptionally young for the circuit at 19 years and two months. In a bit of an upset, Guerrero wasn't the first 19-year-old to receive a promotion to the big leagues this season, as the Nationals brought up top prospect Juan Soto from Double-A Harrisburg on Sunday after injuries thinned Washington's outfield ranks. It may not be long before Guerrero joins Soto in the majors, as the third baseman has proven the Double-A level isn't a challenge for him.

      Blue Jays' Vladimir Guerrero Jr.: Third straight multi-hit effort Monday

      Vladimir Guerrero went 3-for-5 with a home run and two RBI for Double-A New Hampshire in its 10-5 win over Hartford on Monday.Guerrero continues to build momentum for a promotion to the big club, with Monday's performance marking his third consecutive multi-hit effort. His average is now up to .405 for the season, which represents the second-best mark in the minors among players with at least 100 plate appearances. The 19-year-old, who has as many walks (13) as strikeouts this season, has melded his impressive contact and plate discipline with elite power production, as 20 of his 51 hits have gone for extra bases.

      Blue Jays' Vladimir Guerrero Jr.: Homers twice for Double-A club

      Vladimir Guerrero went 2-for-5 with a pair of home runs and five RBI for Double-A New Hampshire in its 10-2 win over Portland on Monday.Hours after showcasing his light-tower power while hitting an opposite-field home run off a tee in a segment for MLB Network, Guerrero kept slugging for the Double-A club, connecting on his fourth and fifth long balls of the season. It was the second multi-homer game of Guerrero's professional career, while the five RBI boosted his season total to an Eastern League-leading 35. Also pacing the circuit with a .398 average, Guerrero seems to have little left to prove in the minors, but service-time considerations could nonetheless delay the 19-year-old's promotion until the second half of the season, or even the 2019 campaign if the Toronto Blue Jays are well removed from playoff contention in the last couple months of the summer.

      Blue Jays' Vladimir Guerrero Jr.: Maintaining dominant form at Double-A

      Vladimir Guerrero went 2-for-4 with a triple, walk and two runs for Double-A New Hampshire in its 7-2 win over Reading on Monday.After setting the Midwest and Florida State Leagues ablaze as an 18-year-old in 2017, Guerrero entered the season as a clear top-five prospect in all of baseball due to his unmatched hit and power tools. Based on how Guerrero has performed since moving to New Hampshire this season, it appears safe to conclude that he'll be a consensus No. 1 for all prospect hounds once Ronald Acuna and Shohei Ohtani log enough at-bats and innings, respectively, in the majors to exhaust their eligibility. Guerrero has raised his long-term ceiling to even more ridiculous heights by supplying a 1.024 OPS and posting a 10:10 BB:K in 96 plate appearances at Double-A. The third baseman already looks like he might be capable of holding his own in the majors, but a promotion to the Toronto Blue Jays in 2018 may be contingent on the team staying in the thick of postseason contention.
