After signing Vladimir Guerrero to a minor-league contract on May 10 the Blue Jays sent the 37-year-old to extended spring training for some workouts and then assigned him to Single-A.
Guerrero predictably destroyed Single-A pitching, going 9-for-20 (.450) with four homers in four games against pitchers 15 years his junior, prompting the Blue Jays to promote him to Triple-A today.
He’ll make his Las Vegas debut Saturday and the hitter-friendly environment gives Guerrero a great opportunity to post some impressive-looking numbers and get back to the majors. Incidentally, this will be the first time Guerrero has ever played at Triple-A, as he jumped from Double-A to the majors as a 21-year-old for the Expos in 1996 and never looked back.
