Vladimir Guerrero Beginning Play In Games, Could Join Blue Jays Next Month

About two weeks ago, Vladimir Guerrero signed a minor-league contract with the Toronto Blue Jays.

At 37, it took him that long to get into playing shape, but now he’s going to play in actual games. Mark Zwolinski:

The veteran slugger was set to join the Class-A Dunedin Blue Jays of the Florida State League on Sunday, his first league play since he signed with the Jays two weeks ago.

“He’ll be in the lineup (Sunday). They have an off-day (Monday), so he’ll be back (in extended spring training) for the day, then back with Dunedin,” Jays manager John Farrell said Saturday.

If all goes well, Guerrero should join Double-A New Hampshire or even Triple-A Las Vegas by the end of the week, Farrell said.

The article goes on to say that Guerrero could, if all goes well, be playing for the major-league Blue Jays by June 5, which is a week from Tuesday, when the Blue Jays begin a series in Chicago against the White Sox. The Jays are hanging in there in the tough AL East, but beyond Jose Bautista and Edwin Encarnacion, they could use some offense, and hope Guerrero will provide that.
