Guerrero went 3-for-5 with a home run and three RBI in Tuesday's 5-3 win over the Braves.
Guerrero failed to get on in his first two at-bats but tied up the game in the sixth with a two-run homer to right field and then evened it up again in the eighth with an RBI single. The 22-year-old is top 10 in baseball in batting average (.322), on-base percentage (.452) and OPS (1.028). He's hit eight home runs to go with 25 runs and 26 RBI to go along with an impressive 25:25 BB:K.
Guerrero went 2-for-4 with a double, an intentional walk, two runs and two RBI in Wednesday's 9-4 win over the Athletics.
Guerrero has now reached base 60 times on the season, tops among all players in baseball. With a .347 average, seven home runs, 22 RBI, 21 runs and one stolen base through 29 games, the 22-year-old has paid major dividends for those that invested an early round pick into him on draft day.
Guerrero went 3-for-4 with a double and a run scored in Monday's 5-4 loss to Oakland.
Guerrero knocked a double and came around to score in the eighth to pull Toronto within a run of the Athletics. He raised his season slash line to .356/.496/.644 with 12 extra-base hits through 115 plate appearances. It was his fourth straight game scoring a run.
Guerrero went 3-for-4 with three home runs and seven total RBI during Tuesday's win over the Nationals.
Guerrero did something his father never accomplished during his stellar 16-year career and had arguably the best game of his young career. He belted a grand slam in the third inning and a solo homer in the fifth before capping things off with a two-run shot in the seventh -- the first two were off Max Scherzer. Guerrero also became the fourth player in MLB history to smash three grand slams before turning 23 years old, joining a list that also includes Ozzie Albies, Giancarlo Stanton and Albert Pujols, and he is also the youngest to record three homers and seven RBI in a single game since 1901.
Guerrero went 2-for-3 with a double, two walks, a run and an RBI in Wednesday's 6-3 win over the Red Sox.
After reaching base four times, Guerrero's on-base average now sits at a robust .513, tops among all players with at least 50 plate appearances this season. Guerrero has paired elite plate discipline with improved power early on, as his .267 ISO is 67 points above his 2020 mark. Fantasy managers that drafted the 22-year-old in anticipation of a potential third-year breakout are more than satisfied with Guerrero's early returns.
Guerrero went 2-for-3 with a solo home run and a second run scored in the first game of Saturday's doubleheader against the Royals.
He walked and scored another run in the nightcap, but it was his sixth-inning blast off Mike Minor that was the highlight of Guerrero's day. The 22-year-old appears headed for his long-awaited breakout campaign, and through 15 games he's slashing a dazzling .412/.524/.706 with four homers and 11 RBI.
Guerrero went 3-for-5 with a solo homer and two runs in a loss to the Royals on Thursday.
He smoked a solo shot off Kyle Zimmer in the seventh inning, launching the ball a whopping 456 feet. It was the third of the year for the prodigal 22-year-old, who's currently slashing .413/.526/.674 in 2021. He's picked up multiple hits in six of the last eight games, a span in which he's driven home eight runs.
Guerrero went 2-for-4 with two walks, a stolen base, three RBI and a run scored Saturday in a victory over the Angels.
Guerrero was one of a trio of Blue Jays hitters to drive in at least three runs in the blowout win. It was the second time in the last three days that the young star finished with three runs batted in, and his eight total RBI this season are tied with Randal Grichuk for the top mark on the club. Guerrero is off to a hot start to the campaign, slashing .379/.538/.621 with a pair of homers and an 8:6 BB:K.
Guerrero went 2-for-4 with a two-run homer and three RBI in a loss to the Angels on Thursday.
The 22-year-old smacked a homer off Griffin Canning in the first inning. The right-handed hitter will have a lot of eyes on him, as many analysts are projecting a breakout season. So far, so good, as he's blasted a pair of homers and driven in five runs with a .348/.483/.652 slash line to open the season.
Guerrero went 2-for-4 with a double in Wednesday's 2-1 loss to Texas.
The righty slugger is off to a strong start, hitting .316 through 19 at-bats as the five-hole hitter. He's done well despite the struggles of Teoscar Hernandez and Lourdes Gurriel, both of whom have been slumping ahead of him in the order. Slimmer than he was a year ago, Guerrero appears to be benefiting from a more contact-based approach at the plate, and the move to first base has allowed him to focus more on his swing and less on fielding at the hot corner. This could be the year he puts it all together at the plate.
Guerrero went 1-for-4 with a home run in Sunday's win over the Yankees.
Guerrero has hit safely in his three games to date, but this one was his most impactful performance since he went deep for the first time in 2021. The slugging infielder has scratched the surface of his potential in his first two years in the majors, but he seems primed to take a huge leap forward in 2021.
Guerrero went 1-for-2 with two walks in Thursday's win over the Yankees.
Hitting fifth in the Jays' Opening Day lineup, Guerrero smoked a single in the second inning that left his bat at 114.1 mph -- per MLB.com, that's the highest exit velocity on a base hit given up by Gerrit Cole since Statcast began tracking the category. If Guerrero can also maintain the improvements in his launch angle he showed this spring while slashing .421/.511/.737 through 47 plate appearances, the 22-year-old could become one of the breakout stars of 2021.
Guerrero crushed a double with an exit velocity of 110 mph during Monday's Grapefruit League game against the Tigers, Keegan Matheson of MLB.com reports.
It's far from the first time this spring the 22-year-old reached triple digits in exit velocity. Guerrero has erupted for a .520/.613/.840 slash line this spring over 12 games with five extra-base hits (three doubles, a triple and a homer) and a stellar 6:2 BB:K. Perhaps more importantly, he's shown an improved launch angle when he has made hard contact, which has been viewed as the key to him unlocking his full potential at the plate. It's taken a couple of years, but Guerrero seems poised to start matching his massive minor-league numbers in the majors.
Guerrero hit his first Grapefruit League home run of the spring Friday against the Tigers, crushing a line drive 412 feet to center field that left his bat at 111.2 mph, Keegan Matheson of MLB.com reports. "He just feels good about himself right now," said Blue Jays manager Charlie Montoyo after the game. "He's in great shape. He had a great offseason. Not only that, in the intrasquad game we had yesterday, he hit two home runs. His last five at-bats have been hard-hit balls like that. We know what he can do, so that's a good sign for all of us."
The 21-year-old came to camp in much better physical condition in an effort to prove he can handle third base defensively, but a slimmed-down Guerrero has looked great at the plate as well, going 5-for-12 so far with four walks and only one strikeout. Friday's homer was his first extra-base hit in Grapefruit League action however, and it remains to be seen whether improved fitness will help him solve the launch-angle issues that have prevented him from blossoming as expected in the majors.
Guerrero revealed Wednesday that he lost 42 pounds during the offseason, Hazel Mae of Sportsnet reports. "It was fun ... wasn't difficult," Guerrero said of his physical transformation. "I feel quicker on all aspects of my game right now ... defensively and offensively."
Reports had surfaced throughout the offseason indicating that Guerrero had made a commitment to improving his conditioning, but it wasn't until Wednesday that he detailed the extent of his weight loss, which puts him in the target range of 240 to 245 pounds that the Blue Jays asked him to report at this spring. The lighter frame should help Guerrero in his efforts to be a usable option at either corner-infield spot in 2021; he was used exclusively at first base and designated hitter in 2020. Guerrero is still likely to be a below-average defender at third base and probably won't be used there frequently with Cavan Biggio sitting atop the depth chart, but if he can at least play enough at the position to regain eligibility in fantasy leagues, it would be a nice boost to his value. More importantly, though, Guerrero must show some growth as a power hitter to justify his draft-day price; he produced a modest nine home runs in 60 games last season, with an inability to consistently get loft on his swing (54.6 percent groundball rate) being the main culprit.
Guerrero is hoping to prove in the Dominican Winter League that he can still be an option at third base for the Blue Jays in 2021, Bob Nightengale of USA Today reports.
He has reportedly lost 40 pounds since July and 20 since the end of the season, down to 245 pounds. Guerrero moved to first base this past season, but it would give the Blue Jays some extra versatility if he could play both corner infield spots. Typically players don't move back up the defensive spectrum, but it's possible in this case if Guerrero is diligent about staying in better shape.
Guerrero was granted permission to play in the Dominican Winter League, Yancen Pujols of El Caribe reports.
There's really no downside here for Guerrero. It will be easier for him to stay in shape and it gives him a chance to get into a groove at the dish ahead of spring training. He has already reportedly lost 40 pounds since July and 20 since the end of the season via an offseason workout regimen, putting him down to 245 pounds. Guerrero's goal is to lose another 10 pounds before camp opens, Hector Gomez of Deportivo Z 101 reports.
Guerrero went 3-for-4 with a solo home run and a second run scored in Thursday's 4-1 win over the Yankees.
His second-inning blast opened the scoring as the Jays clinched a playoff berth. Guerrero is heating up in the regular season's final days, collecting nine hits in the last four games including three doubles, a triple and Thursday's long ball, and on the season the 21-year-old is hitting .263 with eight homers and 32 RBI through 57 games.
Guerrero went 2-for-5 with three RBI and a run scored in Wednesday's 14-1 rout of the Yankees.
Despite leaving four runners on base, Guerrero was productive in a game where five Blue Jays starters recorded multiple hits. With the second American League wild-card spot nearly clinched, Guerrero will look to continue his hot hitting through the end of the season and into the first postseason of his career.
Guerrero went 3-for-3 with two doubles, a triple, a walk and three RBI in Monday's 11-5 win over the Yankees
