Vlad Guerrero Jr. took a page of the MLB record book away from Danny Ainge, of all people Of all the people that Vladimir Guerrero Jr., the most-hyped prospect baseball has seen in years, could be linked to, we’re pretty certain nobody ever expected this one. And we’re talking about a guy who has already been rubbing elbows with Drake. Vlad Jr. put himself in the Toronto Blue Jays record books Tuesday night when he hit first (and later his second) career homers against the San Francisco Giants. At 20 years and 59 days old, he became the youngest player in Jays history to hit a homer in the big leagues. Vlad Jr's first homer was a BOMB. pic.twitter.

Though it hasn't all been smooth sailing and friendly weather for the Toronto Blue Jays this season, they have seen some optimistic signs of what's ahead. The most encouraging sign of all? The arrival of Vladimir Guerrero Jr., son of Hall of Famer Vlad Sr., and perhaps the best hitting prospect in baseball since Mike Trout.

The next phenom is just coming through the pipeline now, as Cavan Biggio, son of Hall of Fame second baseman Craig Biggio, is set to make his own big league debut on Friday. And when he takes the field with Vlad Jr., a special kind of history will be made.

Vladimir Guerrero Jr ., who is ESPN insider Keith Law's No. 2 prospect, will be called up by the Blue Jays on Friday and is expected to make his major This was such an important moment, not only for the city of Toronto and for the Toronto Blue Jays but for our entire baseball community, that the No. 1

Yes, Biggio and Guerrero will be the first pair of teammates with Hall of Fame fathers. Vlad Sr., who had a .318 lifetime batting average and spent 16 seasons with the Expos, Angels, Rangers and Orioles, was a 2018 inductee, while Craig Biggio, who is a member of the illustrious 3,000-hit club and spent his entire 20-year career with the Houston Astros, got the call in 2015.

Though things may be tough at the Rogers Centre now, the future is most certainly bright. With Vladdy and Cavan set to team up for the first time, players like Bo Bichette and Nate Pearson waiting in the wings, and Marcus Stroman re-emerging as a top-of-the-rotation starter, it may not be long before the Jays are competing for the AL East and keeping pace with the juggernauts.

It was his 12th home run of the season. Matt Wisler (2-1) got one out for the win and Craig Stammen finished for his second save in six opportunities.

And Cavan Biggio provided a reminder that the Bisons will have plenty of offensive firepower following the departure of MLB .com's top overall prospect. That was the barrier the Blue Jays wanted him to cross before his first promotion to the Major Leagues . They officially brought him up Wednesday night.

Eastern League MVP and Rookie of the Year Cavan Biggio enjoyed a breakout campaign in 2018, leading the league with 26 home runs, 99 walks, and Bo Bichette set a franchise record and led all of minor league baseball with 43 doubles last season, and enters 2019 as the No. 11 prospect in all of
