The Toronto Blue Jays will be without the services of star prospect Vladimir Guerrero Jr. for approximately three weeks due to a Grade 1 left-oblique strain, Sportsnet’s Shi Davidi has learned.
Guerrero Jr. suffered the injury in his last at-bat against the Pittsburgh Pirates on Friday. He did not play in Saturday’s 8-7 Spring Training win over the Philadelphia Phillies.
GM Ross Atkins indicated that the hope is Guerrero Jr. will resume baseball activities in a week or two before returning to game action.
The injury is not believed to be a long-term concern.
