Vladimir Guerrero Jr., which is widely considered one of the main prospects of baseball, will be named by the Toronto Blue Jays on Friday and is expected to make its big league debut, chief Charlie Montoyo announced.
Guerrero, a 20-year-old third baseman, was No. 2 on the ESPN insider Keith Laws 2019 list of top prospects. Jays has not yet announced a corresponding roster move.
Guerrero beat .381 with 20 homers and 78 RBIs in 95 matches while beating four levels of minor league ball last season.
