CLEARWATER, Fla. — Vladimir Guerrero Jr., went 1 for 4 and scored a run as the Class-A Dunedin Blue Jays routed the Clearwater Threshers 11-2 on Thursday in extended spring training action.

It was Guerrero’s first in-game action since he strained his left oblique in a spring training game against the Pittsburgh Pirates on March 8.

Considered the top prospect in baseball, Guerrero is a key piece in the Toronto Blue Jays‘ ongoing rebuild.

Outfielder Cal Stevenson had a solo home run for Dunedin (1-0), going 3 for 4 with three runs batted in on the day.

Catcher Edgar Cabral had a homer for Clearwater (0-1), an affiliate of the Philadelphia Phillies.
