Toronto Blue Jays prospect Vladimir Guerrero Jr. is one step closer to making it in the major leagues.
Guerrero – the son of Vladimir Guerrero and the top-ranked prospect in baseball entering the 2019 MLB season – is one of 15 non-roster invitees to the Blue Jays' major league spring training, the team announced Saturday.
Although, it does not come as much surprise for the 19-year-old third baseman.
Guerrero climbed up the ranks playing for Double-A New Hampshire and Triple-A Buffalo last season, and he is expected to make his major league debut at some point this campaign.
He hit .336 over 30 games at Buffalo after putting up a .402 batting average through 61 games at New Hampshire to start 2018.
