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.

Reds' Lorenzen pitches an inning, moves to center field.
Reliever Michael Lorenzen began the Cincinnati Reds' mound-to-outfield experiment, pitching one inning and then moving to center field in a game against the Cleveland Indians. It didn't take long for the ball to find him. Lorenzen chased Jose Ramirez's leadoff double in the bottom of the sixth inning of a 5-5 tie, his biggest test during his first time in the outfield. "It was fun," Lorenzen said. "I didn't necessarily get any fly balls but I had a couple hit to me. Hopefully next time I get to run one down." The Reds are exploring options for replacing center fielder Billy Hamilton, who signed with the Royals.
