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

MLB Pipeline has named Toronto Blue Jays prospect Vladimir Guerrero Jr. its 2018 Hitter of the Year.

It’s the latest achievement for young slugger, who slashed a gaudy .381/.437/.636 in 95 games across four levels of the minors this season.

The 19-year-old was already named MLB Pipeline’s No. 1 prospect back in June.

Guerrero’s ended the season with the triple-A Buffalo Bisons, but will resume playing in the Arizona Fall League, along with minor-league teammates Bo Bichette and Cavan Biggio.
