Blue Jays rookie Vladimir Guerrero Jr. gets second player of the week nod

Blue Jays rookie Vladimir Guerrero Jr. gets second player of the week nod Toronto Blue Jays rookie Vladimir Guerrero Jr. has once again been recognized as the American League player of the week. The honour follows a solid stretch for the 20-year-old third basemen, who played six games last week, batting .500 (13-for-26) and scoring five runs, three doubles, three home runs, 11 RBI and two walks. His biggest showing of the week came last Thursday in the Jays 11-2 win over the Baltimore Orioles. Guerrero batted three-for-five with a double, two home runs and four RBI in the victory. This is the second time Guerrero has been named a player of the week, making him the first rookie in Blue Jays history to accomplish the feat.

Blue Jays rookie third baseman Vladimir Guerrero Jr. could be back in the Toronto lineup in short order, as Jon Morosi of MLB Network relays that the 20-year-old Canada native could return for this week’s tilt with the Dodgers. The team has apparently indicated that Vlad Jr.’s status is more “day-to-day than week-to-week”.

After tweaking his knee while fielding a groundball, Guerrero Jr. went for MRI testing–testing that ultimately showed only minor inflammation. After Padres rookie Fernando Tatis Jr.was shut down for the season following a back injury, there was trepidation that even a moderate issue would similarly spell the end of Vladito’s rookie campaign. About that rookie campaign, it’s fair to say that on-field results have been mixed–though ultimately very encouraging for a player of his age.

Across a sizable sample of 386 at-bats, Guerrero Jr. has slashed .274/.345/.464, while wRC+ indicates that he has been 13 percent better than a league-average hitter. When not inside the batter’s box, however, the infielder has shown some warts that the Jays surely hope will iron out as he matures, including a -4.4 BSR measurement on the bases and generally subpar defense as evidenced in part by his -4 DRS mark. The Blue Jays enter play in Los Angeles today with a 52-75 record.

Blue Jays hope Guerrero Jr. learns to control emotions after 1st ejection.
The risk of Vladimir Guerrero Jr., getting tossed from a game simply isn’t worth the reward of voicing your displeasure. At some point, Guerrero Jr. will have to learn that lesson, so the Blue Jays hope it sunk in Friday. “The emotions got the best of him,” bench coach Dave Hudgens said. “He’s just got to step out of the box, take a deep breath and just regroup. That’s stuff you learn as you go. You get that experience.” “That’s a lesson you learn in the big-leagues. The umpires give him a little rope and then he said something else and then it’s like ‘all right, take the rest of the night off.
