The Blue Jays have 2 shutouts so far this year.

All of last year, they had 3.

It's finally happening. The #1 prospect in baseball, Vladimir Guerrero Jr., is making his MLB debut tonight for the Toronto Blue Jays.

Okay, let's do this!

Here's a pic from his Lugnut days with dad

That was not bad at all. He had a couple of solidly struck balls to the warning track. Bad luck though - both were caught so he was 0 for his first 3. Then he came up in the bottom of the 9th in a tie game, hit a leadoff double - and his pinch-runner scored the game winning run on a 2-run walk-off homer.

A couple of nice defensive plays at 3rd base too.

Not bad at all.

Left a bunch of guys on base today but oh well. 1 for 4 with a walk. Team is 2-0 since he has joined.

Seems like a happy kid and a fun teammate.

Vladdy is finally off the shneid tater-wise.

And since he finally got his first last night, he went ahead and hit 2.
