The signing of Vladimir Guerrero comes as a low-risk/high-reward move for the Toronto Blue Jays. He was signed to a one-year deal worth $1.3 million, which will be prorated based on his time with the club this season.
At 37 years of age, it remains to be seen how much Vladdy has to offer.
He is probably Hall of Fame bound as he is a career .318 hitter with 449 home runs and 1,496 RBI.
Adam Lind will likely be most affected if Guerrero can play his way onto the Blue Jays’ roster. As of May 15, he is batting just .184 with three homers and 11 RBI in 31 games.
