Vladimir Guerrero Jr.- Third Base

This list would not be complete without mentioning Vladimir Guerrero Jr. and the special things he has accomplished to this point. Vladdy has absolutely owned Double-A pitching hitting .421/.472/.697 with 64 hits including 25 extra base hits and 16 bases on balls in 39 games with the Fisher Cats.

The third baseman has taken the baseball world by storm with much discussion on when the Jays brain trust should finally promote the phenom to the majors once and for all. Vladdy has eight homers on the season while also registering at least a hit in all but five of New Hampshire’s games this season.

There is no questioning Vladdy is going to special, the only question remains is when the Jays will finally bring the kid north of the border.

Kacy Clemens- First Base

The Blue Jays have yet another bloodline making some noise in the minors as Roger Clemens son Kacy Clemens has come into his own this season. The 23-year old is hitting .301/.454/.624 with 28 hits and seven home runs and 25 runs batted in throughout the Lugnuts first 27 contests.

The first baseman was selected in the 8th round by the Jays in the 2017 draft after attending the Universty of Texas at Austin. Clemens started the season slow in Dunedin but has since hit his stride after his promotion to Single-A Lansing.

The Jays could literally field and All-Bloodline team with the likes of Clemens, Vladdy, Bichette, Biggio and Dwight Smith.
