  • Blue Jays' Vladimir Guerrero: Resting in finale

    Guerrero is not in Sunday's lineup against the Rays.

    Guerrero, who was once again near the top of the MLB leaderboard in games played this year (156), will get a breather in advance of the postseason. Cavan Biggio picks up the start at first base, batting fifth.

  • Blue Jays' Vladimir Guerrero: Crosses plate three times in win

    Guerrero went 3-for-4 with a walk, two doubles and three runs scored in Friday's 11-4 win over the Rays.

    The 24-year-old slugger continues a late-season surge that has helped push the Jays to the verge of the playoffs -- they need one more win, or a Mariners loss, to lock up a wild-card spot. Over his last 12 games, Guerrero is slashing .302/.423/.628 with two doubles, four homers, eight RBI and 10 runs.

  • Blue Jays' Vladimir Guerrero: Homers twice in win

    Guerrero went 2-for-5 with two homers in Sunday's win over the Rays.

    Guerrero looks to be back on track after going 1-for-13 in his previous five games. He smacked three homers in three games prior to that. The 24-year-old Guerrero is up to 26 homers and 94 RBI on the year while batting .266 with a .793 OPS through 660 plate appearances.

  • Blue Jays' Vladimir Guerrero: Returns to lineup

    Guerrero (knee) is starting at designated hitter and batting third Friday against Tampa Bay.

    Guerrero missed two consecutive starts due to discomfort in his right knee, but he'll return to the lineup Friday after making a pinch-hit appearance during Thursday's loss. Guerrero had been enjoying a five-game hitting streak before getting injured, going 7-for-18 with three homers and six RBI in that span.

  • Blue Jays' Vladimir Guerrero: Enters as pinch hitter

    Guerrero (knee) entered Thursday's game against the Yankees as a pinch hitter, Mike Wilner of the Toronto Star reports.

    Guerrero has been out of the lineup for two consecutive games due to right knee discomfort. He had an MRI done Thursday that came back clean, which apparently gave Toronto confidence to use him off the bench. Guerrero beat out a groundball for a base hit, and his ability to run down the line is another good sign for his potential return.

  • Blue Jays' Vladimir Guerrero: MRI clean on right knee

    An MRI on Guerrero's right knee showed no structural damage, and he might be available off the bench Thursday against the Yankees, Shi Davidi of reports.

    Guerrero was scratched from the Blue Jays' lineup Wednesday -- and is not starting Thursday -- because of lingering right knee discomfort, but this latest round of imaging scans has confirmed he is merely dealing with inflammation and won't require an extended break. Spencer Horwitz will get the start at first base in Thursday's series finale at Yankee Stadium, but it sounds like Guerrero could be a full-go for the Jays' three-game weekend set versus Tampa Bay.

  • Blue Jays' Vladimir Guerrero: Out again with knee issue

    Guerrero (knee) remains out of the lineup Thursday versus the Yankees.

    Guerrero was scratched from the lineup Wednesday due to right knee discomfort and promptly sent for an MRI, the results of which are still being evaluated. Spencer Horwitz will play first base and bat sixth for the Blue Jays on Thursday at Yankee Stadium as Davis Schneider fills the DH role and hits cleanup.

  • Blue Jays' Vladimir Guerrero: Undergoes MRI

    Guerrero received an MRI on his right knee Wednesday, Hazel Mae of Sportsnet reports.

    Right knee soreness caused Guerrero to be scratched from the Jays' lineup ahead of Wednesday's contest. The results of Guerrero's MRI are expected to come back Thursday prior to Toronto's game against the Yankees.

  • Blue Jays' Vladimir Guerrero: Scratched with sore knee

    Guerrero was scratched from the lineup Wednesday versus the Yankees due to right knee discomfort, Kaitlyn McGrath of The Athletic reports.

    This knee discomfort has been a lingering issue for Guerrero, but manager John Schneider said it's only soreness -- nothing structural -- and he is considered day-to-day. The 24-year-old slugger was slated to serve as the Blue Jays' designated hitter Wednesday night at Yankee Stadium. Spencer Horwitz will now fill that role as Cavan Biggio covers first base and Whit Merrifield enters the lineup at second base.

  • Blue Jays' Vladimir Guerrero: Homers in third straight game

    Guerrero went 2-for-3 with a solo home run and two runs scored in Saturday's win over the Red Sox. He also walked three times in the contest.

    Guerrero walked in each of his first two trips to the plate before crushing a leadoff homer to open the bottom of the seventh to bring the Blue Jays back within one run of Boston. It marked the first baseman's third consecutive game with a home run and his second game in a row with two hits. He's now hit safely in four straight, driving in six runs over that stretch to go along with four runs scored.

  • Blue Jays' Vladimir Guerrero: Slugs 22nd homer

    Guerrero went 1-for-4 with a two-run home run in Thursday's loss to the Rangers.

    The first baseman gave Toronto an early lead when he took Nathan Eovaldi deep in the first inning, but Texas surged ahead in the top of the second and never looked back. Guerrero is scuffling again in September, slashing .224/.333/.388 through 13 games with two of his 22 homers, but with 86 RBI on the season and 15 games left on the Blue Jays' schedule, he still has an outside shot at his second career 100-RBI campaign.

  • Blue Jays' Vladimir Guerrero: Homers in win

    Guerrero went 2-for-3 with a home run, two RBI and two runs scored in Sunday's 7-5 win over the Rockies.

    Guerrero's 21st home run came in the third and provided the Blue Jays with their initial run of the contest. He later just missed another home run by rocketing a single off the left-field wall in the fifth to drive in another run. Guerrero has now hit safely in 13 of his last 14 games, batting .283 with three homers, 10 RBI and nine runs over that stretch. He is slashing .266/.341/.439 on the season over 583 plate appearances.

  • Blue Jays' Vladimir Guerrero: Could see late-game action at 3B

    The Blue Jays are open to using Guerrero at third base late in games following the injury to Matt Chapman (finger), Ben Nicholson-Smith of reports.

    The team doesn't plan to give Guerrero any starts at the hot corner, but he could be used there on occasion should late-game substitutions dictate it. Guerrero, who hasn't played more than two innings at third base in a season since 2019, has begun taking grounders there pregame. For fantasy purposes, there might be an outside shot that he gains eligibility there, depending on individual league specifications. Davis Schneider started at third base on Monday in the Jays' first game without Chapman, who is without a return timetable as he nurses a sprained right middle finger.

  • Blue Jays' Vladimir Guerrero: Belts homer No. 20

    Guerrero went 1-for-5 with a two-run home run in Sunday's extra-innings loss to the Guardians.

    The 24-year-old slugger gave the Jays an early lead by taking Noah Syndergaard deep in the first inning on a changeup that stayed up in the zone, but Toronto eventually fell 10-7 in the 11th. Guerrero has hit safely in eight straight games and gone yard in two of the last three to get to 20 homers on the season, and the late August hot streak offers some hope he can regain his swagger in September -- his .784 OPS on the season is a long way from the 1.002 mark he delivered in 2021.

  • Blue Jays' Vladimir Guerrero: Ends homer drought

    Guerrero went 2-for-4 with a solo home run in Friday's 5-2 loss to the Guardians.

    The first baseman snapped a 16-game power outage, a stretch in which Guerrero has slashed .279/.353/.328 with only four RBI. After slugging a combined 80 homers over the prior two seasons, the second-generation star has only 19 in 125 games in 2023, and the Jays will likely need Guerrero to heat up in September if they're going to make the playoffs.

  • Blue Jays' Vladimir Guerrero: Starting Tuesday

    Guerrero (finger) is batting cleanup and starting at first base Tuesday against the Orioles.

    He exited Sunday's game against the Reds with left middle finger discomfort, but after Monday's off day, Guerrero is back in the mix. The 24-year-old first baseman is having his least productive season since at least 2020, depending on the metric. He is hitting .238 with one home run, six RBI and four runs in 17 games this month.

  • Blue Jays' Vladimir Guerrero: Exits with finger discomfort

    Guerrero was removed ahead of the bottom of the fourth inning of Sunday's game against the Reds due to left middle finger discomfort. He went 1-for-2 with a walk and a run scored prior to his departure.

    Guerrero's injury may not be a major concern, as the Blue Jays took a 9-2 lead into the bottom of the fourth and might have chosen to pull the first baseman from the contest early as a matter of precaution. The Blue Jays are off Monday, so Guerrero will get some extra time to heal up from the finger injury before the team opens a crucial three-game series in Baltimore on Tuesday.
