Vladimir Guerrero Jr 2019 Teams: Dunedin Blue Jays (A) Buffalo Bisons (AAA) Toronto Blue Jays (MLB) 2019 MLB Stats: PA: 514 BA: .272 OBP: .339 SLG: .433 H: 126 R: 52 RBI: 69 HR: 15 2B: 26 3B: 2 BB: 46 SO: 91 SB: 0 Maybe the most hyped up prospect in a decade, most Blue Jay fans (and most MLB fans) seemed to have expected that Vladimir Guerrero Jr would come up to the majors and hit .330 with 50 home runs. Obviously, this was extremely unrealistic, and did not happen. However, it’s not like it was an unsuccessful rookie year for Vladdy. He debuted on April 26, at home against Oakland, in a game that had the atmosphere of a playoff game. Guerrero went 1 for 5, with a double in the ninth inning. After that game, however, Guerrero experienced some struggles, swinging at pitches in the dirt, and seemed to be trying to hit home runs, rather than just trying to make contact and hit the ball hard. He hit his first homer in mid May (actually his first two) against the San Francisco Giants. This seemed to break Guerrero out of his slump, and he would hit six more home runs before the Home Run Derby, which would be the crowning moment of Vladdy’s season. Guerrero hit 91 homers in the derby, highlighted by a triple overtime showdown against Joe Peterson, which Guerrero eventually won. Vladdy would eventually be defeated by Pete Alonso in the final, but he put on quite a show. The big negative of Vladdy’s season was his defence. He made way too many errors, and was often too slow when making plays. Speculation has already began that he will move to first base. For now, Guerrero will remain at third. He ended his season with 15 homers and a .272 batting average. Though he won’t win rookie of the year, it was a more than respectable first season for a 20 year old rookie. Outlook for next season: Guerrero will begin the season as the third baseman, and will look to take the next step in his sophomore season. I could see a 30-35 home run season for Guerrero.

Lourdes Gurriel Jr 2019 Teams: Buffalo Bisons (AAA) Toronto Blue Jays (MLB) 2019 MLB Stats: PA: 343 BA: .277 OBP: .327 SLG: .541 H: 87 R: 52 RBI: 50 HR: 20 2B: 19 3B: 2 BB: 20 SO: 86 SB: 6 Lourdes Gurriel Jr was supposed to become an everyday infielder for the Blue Jays this season. After all, this was his second season in the big leagues, and he had impressed in his rookie year of 2018. He had also played second base in the minors. However, at the start of the season, Gurriel made several terrible throws at second, and he seemed to have lost his confidence. He was demoted to the minors, where began to play in left field. Gurriel spent about a month in Buffalo, and he came back a different player. Lourdes was absolutely brilliant in left field, showing off a cannon of an arm, and making several spectacular diving catches. Gurriel actually ended up leading A.L. left fielders in outfield assists, despite making his debut in left field on May 24! Gurriel also did very well with the bat, hitting .277 along with 20 homers. Sadly, Gurriel’s season was cut short by a couple of injuries. He suffered a hamstring injury in August and missed over a month, and then had his appendix removed in late September, which ended his season. Injuries aside, this was a very successful season for Gurriel, and he looks to have cemented himself in the Blue Jays young core, along with Guerrero, Bichette and Biggio. Outlook for next season: Lourdes has left field locked down heading into next season, and will hopefully be able to continue his stellar play in the field. He should be able to reach the 30 homer plateau next year.

Javy Guerra 2019 Teams: Buffalo Bisons (AAA) Toronto Blue Jays (MLB) Washington Nationals (MLB) 2019 MLB Stats: Toronto: G: 11 W: 0 L: 0 ERA: 3.86 WHIP: 1.214 IP: 14.0 H: 12 ER: 6 BB: 5 SO: 15 HR: 1 H/9: 7.7 HR/9: 0.6 BB/9: 3.2 SO/9: 9.6 Washington: G: 40 W: 3 L: 1 ERA: 4.86 WHIP: 1.248 IP: 53.2 H: 55 ER: 29 BB: 12 SO: 42 HR: 9 H/9: 9.2 HR/9: 1.5 BB/9: 2.0 SO/9: 7.0 The Washington Nationals, who are World Series bound, will be bringing two former Blue Jays with them. One, Daniel Hudson, has been a huge contributor for the Nats, even closing some game for them. The other, Javy Guerra, is not on the postseason roster. Many Blue Jay fans likely do not remember, but Guerra was on Toronto’s Opening Day roster this season, after he made the team out of spring training. He did not last too long, as he was DFA’d in April and claimed by the Nationals. Guerra did have a three inning save with the Blue Jays the day before he was designated for assignment, where he told Charlie Montoyo to give him the ball and let him go for as long as he could, in order to give his fellow bullpen mates a rest. Guerra’s tenure with the Nationals hasn’t gone too well, as he has posted a 4.86 ERA and a WHIP of 1.248. He was even designated for assignment by the Nats once, but was actually re-added to the 40 Man Roster the very next day. Though the season has been an up and down one for Guerra, he’ll receive a World Series ring if Washington can win their first ever championship. Outlook for next season: Guerra is controlled by the Nats through arbitration next season, but is a candidate to be non-tendered. He will likely receive a minor league deal with an invitation to spring training.

It’s been a week of consistency. A week of total meal prep ( minus a glass of wine or two 😵) A week of training without deviation even when I was forced to go after a long work day. Excuses will always be there and reasons not to do it will always present themselves if you want them to. I have goals far beyond what I’m doing right now and this is only a small part of that puzzle. Here’s to a new week 💕 #fitness #fitnessmotivation #fitnessmodel #fitspo #fitnessgirl #fit #fitnessaddict #gluteworkout #glute #glutegains #gains #girlswholift #buffalo #girls #smile #love #fashion #express #gymshark #gymsharkwomen #buffalo #buffalobills #buffalosabres #buffalobisons #southtownsfitness #🍑 #legs #buffalony #buffalove #ootd
Ryan Feierabend 2019 Teams: New Hampshire Fisher Cats (AA) Buffalo Bisons (AAA) Toronto Blue Jays (MLB) 2019 MLB Stats: G: 2 W: 0 L: 1 ERA: 11.12 WHIP: 2.118 IP: 5.2 H: 11 ER: 7 BB: 1 SO: 4 HR: 2 H/9: 17.5 HR/9: 3.2 BB/9: 1.6 SO/9: 6.4 During the early part of the season, the Blue Jays tried out a lot of players, and many of them were not very good. Socrates Brito, Alen Hanson, and Ryan Feierabend are some of the examples, all who ended up getting DFA’d. Feierabend pitched in only two games for the Blue Jays, and posted a hideous 11.12 ERA. Fun fact: he actually had a complete game. He pitched four innings in a game against the White Sox, and then the game was rained out. Feierabend did bring something to the Blue Jays that they hadn’t had since R.A. Dickey: a knuckleball. However, he failed to throw it consistently well, and his other pitches were not very good, which was not a good combination. After only one start and one relief appearance, Feierabend, who had spent the past three years pitching in Korea, was designated for assignment. He cleared waivers and was outrighted to the minors, where it didn’t go much better. Between 14 games in Triple A and one game in Double A, Feierabend posted an ERA approaching six. Safe to say, the return to North America didn’t go too well for Ryan Feierabend. Outlook for next season: There is no need for the Blue Jays to bring Feierabend back next year, as he will be 35, and the Jays will want to let their young pitchers play in the minors. Feierabend will likely have some trouble finding a contract, but he might be able to secure a minor league deal.
