Blue Jays will not call up Vladimir Guerrero Jr. in September

Watch as Vlad Guerrero Jr goes to right field with a laser of a home run.

Toronto Blue Jays fans will have to wait until the 2019 regular season to see prized prospect Vladimir Guerrero Jr. in the big leagues.

During Sunday’s broadcast, Toronto Blue Jays GM Ross Atkins confirmed the 19-year-old phenom will remain with triple-A Buffalo, putting an end to the speculation surrounding whether or not the ball club would make Guerrero Jr. a September call-up.

Keeping Guerrero Jr. at triple-A for the rest of 2018 ensures the Blue Jays will have an additional year of team control over baseball’s top prospect.

Atkins added that Guerrero Jr. will play in the Arizona Fall League, which starts in October.
