Spin: Guerrero sustained the injury during a game for Double-A New Hampshire on Wednesday. He later underwent a series of examinations, which revealed the strain. Per the Blue Jays, Guerrero will be "managed conservatively, including initial rest and will be re-evaluated in four weeks post-injury." The 19-year-old Guerrero is ranked as the No. 2 prospect in baseball by MLB Pipeline, trailing only Atlanta's Ronald Acuna Jr. for the No. 1 overall spot. Guerrero was in the midst of a borderline historic season for the Fisher Cats, with a .407/.457/.667 slash line with 11 homers and 55 RBIs in 53 games.]]> 5231121 Sun, 10 Jun 2018 15:14:08 EDT

<![CDATA[BREAKING: Vlad Jr. (knee) out at least 4 weeks]]> Vladimir Guerrero Jr. has been diagnosed with a strained patellar tendon in his left knee. The Blue Jays will manage him conservatively and he will be re-evaluated in four weeks.]]> 5231063 Sun, 10 Jun 2018 13:28:01 EDT <![CDATA[Out four weeks with strained kneecap]]> Guerrero was diagnosed with a strained left patella tendon Sunday after undergoing a battery of tests, John Lott of The Athletic Toronto reports. The Blue Jays plan to reevaluate Guerrero in four weeks.

With the Blue Jays already beginning to fade from the playoff picture and Guerrero now on the shelf for at least the next month, it's looking increasingly unlikely that the third baseman will earn a promotion to the big club in 2018. Given the Blue Jays' stated intent of managing the 19-year-old "conservatively," it wouldn't be surprising if he didn't return to action at Double-A New Hampshire until August, even if he's cleared to resume baseball activities once the four-week rest period ends. It's an unfortunate setback for arguably the top prospect in all of the minors, who earned that distinction by slashing .407/.457/.667 with nearly as many walks (20) as strikeouts (21) in 235 plate appearances in the Eastern League.

Spin: Guerrero, the Jays top prospect and No. 2 overall prospect via MLB Pipeline, will undergo further evaluation on his sore left knee in Florida on Saturday. Guerrero, the third baseman for Double-A New Hampshire, left a game earlier this week with soreness in the knee area, and the Jays want to have him checked out by their medical staff. Guerrero was lifted for a pinch-runner in the fourth inning shortly after hitting a single Wednesday. Per reports out of New Hampshire, Guerrero limped off the field and appeared to be favoring the same left leg he injured while running out an infield single on Saturday against Binghamton. Guerrero is batting .407/.457/.667 with 11 home runs and 55 RBIs in 53 games for the Fisher Cats this season.]]> 5230208 Fri, 08 Jun 2018 21:42:12 EDT

Guerrero suffered what appeared to be some sort of hamstring injury during Wednesday's game, though the team has refrained from stating anything specific outside of calling it a leg injury. Toronto director of player development Gil Kim stated that the organization is just being cautious with this move, and that Guerrero isn't expected to be dealing with "anything serious." Expect an update on the 19-year-old's condition in the coming days after getting some rest.
