Vlad Guerrero was the best. The Dominican slugger hit 449 career home runs for the Expos, Angels, Rangers, and Orioles and he did it while being one of the most exciting players to watch of his generation. Guerrero would basically swing at anything but if it connected, there’s a good chance it would go 450 feet.
Now, the Guerrero name lives on in the MLB farm system, as Vladimir Guerrero Jr. has made his debut for the Blue Jays rookie league team, fittingly blasting a home run in his first game. Guerrero Jr. is the Jays No. 5 rated prospect, and he’s already showing signs that he could one day be a major league home-run hitter.
If you aren’t convinced Guerrero Jr. has what it takes to replicate his father, just look at him socking 33 home runs in 60 swings in a DR home run derby two years ago.
