The hope of the Toronto Blue Jays, Vladimir Guerrero’s son was named offensive player of the week in the Eastern League.
The third baseman 19 years of age, who lived in the AA level with the Fisher Cats from Manchester, New Hampshire, has maintained a batting average of ,361 between the 5th and the 15th of April.
Guerrero has played in nine games during this period, his first with the Fisher Cats. He slammed 13 hits, including a two-circuit and four-double, 12 points and has crossed seven times on the marble.
His production has been even more impressive during the last five games. The third best hope of major league baseball has slapped 10 hits in 21 at bat for an average of ,476.
“The most important thing for him will be to understand each appearance at bat, every throw, how the opposing team will attempt the attack to then be able to adjust,” explained John Schneider, manager of the Fisher Cats, in the interview at the site MiLB.com.
After signing with the Jays in 2015, at the age of 16 years, Guerrero began his professional career in 2016 in the Appalachian League. Last year, his first full season in the minors in the level, he has maintained a batting average of ,323.
