Blue Jays’ Vladimir Guerrero Jr. goes about business of first big-league camp

first_imgStill, the Jays have been criticized for already saying he isn’t expected to begin the 2019 season in the majors, largely to delay the start of his MLB-service time. Guerrero, the son of Hall of Famer Vladimir Guerrero, won’t get into that discussion. Notes the Star: He plans to work hard and control what he can control.”I’ve never put numbers in my head,” he said. “I focus on my work and just doing what I need to do. The numbers will show up if I’m focused on getting the work done.”It’s that approach that helped Guerrero slash .381/.437/.636 with 20 home runs, 78 RBIs and a 1.073 OPS moving up four rungs in one season in 2018, from Rookie ball to Advanced-A to Double-A and finishing at Triple-A Buffalo, where he’s ticketed to begin this season. Blue Jays mega-prospect Vladimir Guerrero Jr. is in his first big league camp in Dunedin, Florida, and is going about his business, which happens to be baseball and nothing but baseball.“I’m not the kind of person that craves attention or wants it particularly,” Guerrero told the Toronto Star on Monday, through translator Tanya Bialostozky, who is also a Jays mental performance coach. “I’m a guy that is focused on coming here, working hard, doing the best I can and then just going home and keeping a low profile.” He continued: “When I’m here, when I’m on the field, in the clubhouse, I’m a baseball player. Outside, when I’m at my home, I’m just a person, a human being. I try to come here, give my best, leave it here and then just go back to being a person at home, a regular guy.”OK, about that second part: He is a human being, but, at 19 (turning 20 next month), he has an extraordinary gift for the game.
