A new season, a new level, but the same Vladimir Guerrero Jr.
The Toronto Blue Jays super prospect has started the 2018 campaign with a bang, slashing .361/.419/.639 with two home runs and 12 RBIs through his first nine games at double-A New Hampshire. That monster slash line earned him Eastern League player of the week honours.
Guerrero Jr. opened the season with New Hampshire after splitting 2017 between single-A Lansing and advanced-A Dunedin. He notably suited up for the big club when the Blue Jays made their annual trip to Montreal last month, hitting a dramatic walk-off home run in the stadium his father called home for eight years.
Fellow Blue Jays top prospect Bo Bichette has also enjoyed a solid start to 2018, posting a .350 batting average with four RBIs and three stolen bases through nine games for the Fisher Cats.
