Just when fans thought they have seen the last of Vladimir Guerrero he signs a minor league contract with the Toronto Blue Jays.
The Dominican born outfielder last played with the Baltimore Orioles batting .290 mostly as a designator hitter for the 2011 season under an $8 million contract. Guerrero won the American League Most valuable Player award in 2004 while playing for the Anaheim Angels (now the Los Angeles Angels). That year he batted .337 with 39 homeruns and 126 runs batted in.
Cal Ripken Jr. commented during a TBS post-game report that Guerrero was “the best bad-ball hitter he’s ever seen.” One of the many highlights of his long career was playing in the MLB All-Star game (1999, 2000, 2001, 2002, 2004, 2005, 2006, 2007, and 2010).
Although the Blue Jays have not guaranteed that Guerrero will play in the Major Leagues this season the 37 year has left a great baseball legacy for himself and maybe ready to add more stats to his stellar record.
