The latest Toronto Blue Jays quick hits involving updates on Vladimir Guerrero Jr., Anthony Kay, David Paulino and more.

Vladdy vs. Aroldis

Vladimir Guerrero Jr. and Aroldis Chapman had a 13-pitch battle for ages as the youngster asserted himself as a force to be reckoned with versus one of the game’s best closers. The baseball world took notice including “Mr. October”.

Reggie Jackson tweeted a warning to Champman to be careful next time as Vladdy is a fast learner and destined to be great. Regardless of the outcome, the matchup was something special as Vladdy hung with the big dog.

Special Kay

Kay has now allowed five earned runs in his first three appearances with the herd since being acquired in the New York Mets in the Marcus Stroman trade.
