Blue Jays top prospect Vladimir Guerrero Jr. has been reassigned to minor league camp.

The news came Thursday in a report from Sportsnet, just days after Guerrero was sidelined with a grade 1 strain of his left oblique.

The move, however, is somewhat procedural since Guerrero was going to miss the rest of spring training anyway, the report noted.

The 19-year-old third baseman initially suffered the injury Friday against Pittsburgh in his most recent Grapefruit League game, but the team didn't announce how or exactly when the injury happened.
