Blue Jays' Vladimir Guerrero: Snaps homer drought
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Guerrero went 1-for-3 with a walk and a solo home run in Tuesday's win over the Nationals.

The blast to left-center field was Guerrero's first homer since last August, but it very nearly wasn't -- Victor Robles got his glove on it at the top of the wall but then collided with Emilio Bonifacio, and lost both ball and glove over the fence. Guerrero has gone 5-for-21 (.238) through five games to begin the season, but Tuesday's good fortune might have been just what the 21-year-old needed to get into a groove.

Blue Jays' Vladimir Guerrero: Moving to first base
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Guerrero will primarily play first base and designated hitter this season, Ben Nicholson-Smith of Sportsnet.ca reports.

Guerrero was widely expected to move to first base eventually, though it wasn't clear that he'd move so soon. He'll still be considered a possibility at the hot corner, but his defense graded out very poorly there according to both DRS and UZR, so the move is hardly a surprise. He should pick up the additional eligibility early in the season, though he'll likely lose third-base eligibility for 2022, which could affect owners in dynasty formats. Travis Shaw is expected to be Toronto's primary third baseman this season.

Blue Jays' Vladimir Guerrero: Has access to batting cage
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Guerrero has been able to hit at a batting cage near his home in the Dominican Republic to try and stay sharp while MLB is on pause, Kaitlyn McGrath of The Athletic reports.

Based on pics posted to his Instagram feed, Guerrero has not only been hitting but has been able to stay in good shape, something that was a concern after his weight and general fitness level came into question toward the end of his rookie campaign. Expect the young slugger to be ready to go once training camps open up again, and the potential for a breakout 2020 from the second-generation player remains high.

Blue Jays' Vladimir Guerrero: Tabbed for cleanup role
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Manager Charlie Montoyo said Thursday that he plans to use Guerrero as the Blue Jays' cleanup hitter this season, Kaitlyn McGrath of The Athletic reports.

Heading into spring training, Guerrero appeared likely to slot in as the Blue Jays' No. 3 hitter, but the 20-year-old expressed a desire to drop down a spot in the order. Instead, Toronto plans to use Lourdes Gurriel out of the three hole, as Guerrero told Montoyo he feels he can benefit from observing Gurriel's at-bats beforehand since pitchers tend to attack both hitters the same way. Guerrero's fantasy outlook won't change much whether he bats third or fourth, as he should see plenty of run-producing chances regardless while a pair of high on-base batters in Bo Bichette and Cavan Biggio occupy the top two spots in the order.

Blue Jays' Vladimir Guerrero: Slated to hit third
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Guerrero is expected to begin the season hitting third, following Bo Bichette and Cavan Biggio, Gregor Chisholm of The Toronto Star reports.

It's a little unusual for a manager to be setting his regular-season batting order this early, but given the nature of the Jays roster it's no surprise that Charlie Montoyo plans to put his trio of talented youngsters right at the top. Hitting third behind two players adept at getting on base in Bichette (.358 OBP in 2019) and Biggio (.364) could allow Guerrero to challenge for 100 RBI in his second MLB season after he drove in 69 in 123 games as a rookie.

Blue Jays' Vladimir Guerrero Jr.: Working on launch angle
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Guerrero has been working with hitting coach Guillermo Martinez to refine his swing plane and improve his launch angle, Gregor Chisholm of The Toronto Star reports.

The 20-year-old is coming off a solid rookie season, but Vladito didn't meet the inflated expectations attached to him in the minors thanks in large part to a 6.7 percent launch angle and groundball rate north of 50 percent. Guerrero demonstrated in the Home Run Derby that he can crush a baseball; the trick now is to do it more consistently during game conditions. If he can add more loft to the ball and make better contact, the sky is the limit on his power potential.

Blue Jays' Vladimir Guerrero Jr.: Sitting for season finale
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Guerrero (knee) is not in the lineup for Sunday's game against the Rays, Shi Davidi of Sportsnet.ca reports.

Guerrero was scratched from Saturday's lineup with right knee soreness, so it's not much of a surprise to see him held out Saturday. The 20-year-old figures to finish his rookie campaign with a .272/.339/.433 slash line, 15 home runs and 69 RBI in 123 games. Breyvic Valera will start at the hot corner in the season finale.

Blue Jays' Vladimir Guerrero Jr.: Scratched with knee soreness
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Guerrero was a late scratch from Saturday's lineup against the Rays with right knee soreness, Ben Nicholson-Smith of Sportsnet.ca reports.

He missed time in August with left knee inflammation, and now his other knee is giving him trouble. It may not seem like much, but given how big Guerrero is (at least 250 pounds), it is somewhat concerning that his lower body is giving him trouble in his age-20 season. With just one game left on the schedule, we may not see him again this season. Brandon Drury was added to the lineup at third base.

Blue Jays' Vladimir Guerrero Jr.: Absent from Sunday's lineup
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Guerrero is not in Sunday's lineup against the Yankees.

Guerrero will take a seat for the first time since Sept. 15. He's in the midst of a six-game hitting streak, four of which have been multi-hit efforts. Brandon Drury will draw the start at third base and bat eighth in his place.

Blue Jays' Vladimir Guerrero Jr.: Hits 15th homer
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Guerrero went 2-for-4 with a solo home run in a 4-3 victory over the Yankees on Friday.

This was Guerrero's fourth straight game with multiple hits. That's been great, but this was also his first home run since Aug. 22. Owners would like to see a little more pop from Guerrero over the last week, as he owns just a .443 slugging percentage. He is batting .276 with 15 home runs, 68 RBI and 51 runs in 442 at-bats this season.

Blue Jays' Vladimir Guerrero Jr.: In Thursday's lineup
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Guerrero (ribs) is starting at third base and hitting cleanup Thursday against the Orioles.

He left Wednesday's game with a left rib issue after colliding with Jonathan Villar at second base, but the injury was apparently minor. Guerrero is hitting .212 with zero home runs in 13 games this month.

Blue Jays' Vladimir Guerrero Jr.: Exits with rib injury
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Guerrero left Wednesday's game against the Orioles with a left rib injury, Rob Longley of the Toronto Sun reports.

Guerrero went 2-for-6 with one run and one strikeout before being replaced by a pinch runner (Jonathan Davis). The injury occurred during a collision at second base with Jonathan Villar. He is being evaluated by Toronto's medical staff.

Blue Jays' Vladimir Guerrero Jr.: Day off Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Guerrero will sit Sunday against the Yankees.

Guerrero takes a breather for the second time this month. He's hit just .167/.217/.238 in 11 games this month, dragging his season OPS down to a good but not great .781. Richard Urena gets the start at third base Sunday.

Blue Jays' Vladimir Guerrero Jr.: Drives in three
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Guerrero went 1-for-3 with three RBI on Wednesday against the the Red Sox.

Despite not recording an extra-base hit, Guerrero turned in a productive outing by roping a two-run single to left field in the fifth inning. It was his first multi-RBI performance since Aug. 16, though Guerrero has not gone yard since Aug. 22. Even given that lack of productivity, he's still managed a .274/.347/.452 line across 458 plate appearances in his age-20 season.

Blue Jays' Vladimir Guerrero Jr.: Not starting Monday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Guerrero will get the day off Monday against the Braves.

Guerrero's numbers have improved after a somewhat slow start to his big-league career. Over his last 37 games, he owns an excellent .350/.414/.591 slash line, striking out just 13.8 percent of the time. Brandon Drury starts at third base in his absence.

Blue Jays' Vladimir Guerrero Jr.: Launches solo home run
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Guerrero went 3-for-4 with a solo home run in Thursday's loss to the Dodgers.

Guerrero crushed a curveball over the center field wall in the sixth inning to stake Toronto to a 2-0 lead. The 20-year-old has enjoyed a tremendous August, batting .381 (24-for-63) with four homers and 12 RBI in 18 games. In his rookie season, Guerrero is now slashing .282/.356/.477 with 15 long balls and 55 runs batted in over 396 plate appearances.

Blue Jays' Vladimir Guerrero Jr.: Gets day off
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Guerrero is not in the lineup Wednesday against the Dodgers.

Guerrero returned from a bout of knee inflammation Tuesday, going 2-for-2 with a pair of walks in his first game back. He'll give way to Brandon Drury at third base Wednesday as the Blue Jays look to ease the youngster back into action. Since the start of the second half, Guerrero is slashing an impressive .331/.394/.565 with six home runs and 29 RBI in 33 games.

Blue Jays' Vladimir Guerrero Jr.: Reaches base four times in return
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Guerrero (knee) went 2-for-2 with a pair of walks Tuesday in the Blue Jays' 16-3 loss to the Dodgers.

Guerrero's inclusion in the lineup was somewhat surprising after he was diagnosed with inflammation in his left knee over the weekend, but Monday's team off day apparently remedied the matter. The rookie re-entered the lineup for Tuesday's series opener and showcased his usual elite plate approach, seeing 19 pitches on the night and reaching base in all four of his plate appearances. The Blue Jays could choose to give him a maintenance day in the near future but Guerrero's knee otherwise doesn't appear to be a concern moving forward.

Blue Jays' Vladimir Guerrero Jr.: Returns to action
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Guerrero (knee) is starting at third base and batting third Tuesday night against the Dodgers, Ben Nicholson-Smith of Sportsnet.ca reports.

Guerrero will rejoin the starting nine after missing just one contest with knee inflammation. He was able to take groundballs prior to Tuesday's matchup and evidently checked out OK. Guerrero is batting .229 with five extra-base hits and five RBI over his last 10 games.

August 20, 2019 05:20 PM
Blue Jays' Vladimir Guerrero Jr.: Takes part in fielding work
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Guerrero (knee) was spotted taking groundballs prior to Tuesday's game against the Dodgers, Shi Davidi of Sportsnet.ca reports.

Guerrero appears unlikely to play in Tuesday's matchup, but it's good to see that he's getting some fielding work in. An update on his availability may come after the rookie completes his workout.
