      Blue Jays' Vladimir Guerrero Jr.: Set for MLB debut Friday

      Vladimir Guerrero will be called up from Triple-A Buffalo ahead of Friday's game against the Athletics, Gregor Chisholm of MLB.com reports.There were some reports over the weekend that Guerrero would be called up Tuesday, but instead he'll end up making his MLB debut Friday. The 20-year-old continued to tear it up at Buffalo since recovering from the oblique injury sustained in spring training by slashing .360/.429/.640 in 28 plate appearances. Guerrero should slot into an everyday role at third base and occupy a prominent spot in the batting order.

      Blue Jays' Vladimir Guerrero Jr.: Promotion not coming Tuesday

      Vladimir Guerrero isn't expected to receive a promotion from Triple-A Buffalo ahead of the Toronto Blue Jays' series opener Tuesday against the Giants, Bob Nightengale of USA Today reports.Some reports over the past few days indicated Guerrero's MLB debut would come Tuesday during the start of the Blue Jays' homestand, but manager Charlie Montoyo suggested over the weekend that likely wouldn't be the case, per Ben Nicholson-Smith of Sportsnet.ca. Toronto hasn't officially confirmed when baseball's top prospect will arrive in the majors, but Nicholson-Smith believes that Friday's game against the Athletics is the most realistic target. Due to the uncertainty of Guerrero's arrival date, fantasy managers in leagues with weekly lineups may be best off keeping him on the bench -- especially with Toronto playing just five games this week -- but it's apparent the wait will come to an end soon.

      Blue Jays' Vladimir Guerrero Jr.: Promotion could come Friday

      The Toronto Blue Jays are still finalizing a date for Vladimir Guerrero's big-league debut, but Ben Nicholson-Smith of Sportsnet.ca suggests that the team's April 26 game against the Athletics is the most likely target.While the nugget is speculative more than anything, Nicholson-Smith is a well-connected beat reporter who has reasonable insight into the Blue Jays' plans for one of the more prized prospects in recent memory. There had been prior rumblings that the Blue Jays were eyeing the first game of their homestand (Tuesday versus the Giants) for Guerrero's promotion, but manager Charlie Montoyo told Nicholson-Smith that he "[didn't] think" that would be the case. In any event, Guerrero's callup is imminent, and fantasy managers that have been patiently holding him should soon be able to reap the rewards.

      Blue Jays' Vladimir Guerrero Jr.: Conflicting reports on callup

      Vladimir Guerrero may not debut Tuesday against the Giants, Scott Mitchell of TSN reports.Mitchell reports that there is only a "one percent chance" of Guerrero getting called up that day unless the Toronto Blue Jays suffer an injury over the weekend. That contradicts reports from earlier in the day, which suggested that Tuesday would be Guerrero's debut. Speculation about the young third baseman's arrival will continue until his debut date is confirmed by the Blue Jays.

      Blue Jays' Vladimir Guerrero Jr.: To debut Tuesday

      Vladimir Guerrero will be called up to make his MLB debut Tuesday at home against the Giants, Hector Gomez of Deportivo Z 101 reports.This had long seemed like the most likely day for Guerrero to make his debut, as it afforded him a little over a week's worth of games at Triple-A while ensuring he debuted at home. He will slot in as the Toronto Blue Jays' everyday third baseman and will likely get a spot in the heart of the order from Day 1.

      Blue Jays' Vladimir Guerrero Jr.: Won't debut this weekend

      Vladimir Guerrero will remain at Triple-A Buffalo at least through the weekend, Gregor Chisholm of MLB.com reports."Whenever [Buffalo manager] Bobby Meacham and [director of player development] Gil Kim say he's ready, he'll be here," Toronto Blue Jays manager Charlie Montoyo said Thursday. "I just don't know when that's going to happen. It could be any day. It could be a month." That may sound discouraging for fantasy GMs anxiously awaiting Guerrero's arrival, but the issue primarily seems to be one of workload -- the Bisons' schedule has been interrupted by rain, and the 20-year-old has yet to suit up on three consecutive days. Assuming the weather clears enough for Guerrero to prove he's over his oblique strain and can play every day, the earliest target date for his big-league debut now appears to be April 26, when the Jays begin a home series against the A's.

      Blue Jays' Vladimir Guerrero Jr.: Crushes homer for Buffalo

      Vladimir Guerrero went 2-for-4 with a walk, a solo home run and a second run scored for Triple-A Buffalo on Wednesday.The blast actually left the ballpark completely, landing in a parking lot beyond the left-field bleachers of Pawtucket's McCoy Stadium with an exit velocity of 107 mph, according to Jessica Camerato of MLB.com. Guerrero is slashing .412/.500/.824 through 20 plate appearances for Buffalo with a double, two homers and a 3:0 BB:K, and at least at the plate he clearly has nothing left to learn in the minors.

      Blue Jays' Vladimir Guerrero Jr.: Three more hits at Triple-A

      Vladimir Guerrero went 3-for-5 with a run scored and an RBI for Triple-A Buffalo on Sunday.The 20-year-old is doing his best to prove to the Jays front office that he deserves to be in the majors already, slashing .500/.583/.900 through three games at the highest level of the minors with a 2:0 BB:K. Toronto called up Eric Sogard to replace Lourdes Gurriel over the weekend, but the next time they dip into the Triple-A ranks for reinforcements, it will almost certainly be to begin Guerrero's big-league career.

      Blue Jays' Vladimir Guerrero Jr.: Will be up sooner than later

      While Vladimir Guerrero may not debut this weekend, he will be up "sooner than later," according to general manager Ross Atkins, Ben Nicholson-Smith of Sportsnet.ca reports. "It's about getting built up and getting into really just regular-season form and being hopefully ready to make a debut at some point soon," Atkins said.The Toronto Blue Jays have now waited long enough that they have Guerrero under team control for this year and the following six MLB seasons. It seems likely that Guerrero will be up for the team's next homestand, which begins April 23 against the Giants. He has only played in two games with Triple-A Buffalo, going 2-for-5 with a home run, two walks and zero strikeouts. Guerrero has apparently slimmed down since spring training and now weighs closer to 240 pounds than the 250 pounds at which he is listed.

      Blue Jays' Vladimir Guerrero Jr.: Arrival not imminent

      Vladimir Guerrero's arrival in the big leagues may not be only days away, Mike Wilner of Sportsnet 590 The Fan reports.Guerrero has recovered from his oblique strain and is hitting well in the minors. He could have been called up Friday, as the Toronto Blue Jays have already secured an extra year of team control, and GM Ross Atkins reiterated that the prospect's promotion would come "sooner than later", but the club doesn't seem to be in any hurry to get the 20-year-old to the majors. It's possible that in a season in which the Blue Jays are not expected to compete for a playoff spot, the team will elect to maximize the believability that Guerrero is truly "working on his defense" rather than maximizing his number of big-league at-bats.
