Having just recently been called up to Triple-A Buffalo, top Toronto Blue Jays prospect Vladimir Guerrero Jr. continues to make a mockery of minor league pitching.
Across four different levels this season, the chosen one is hitting .404 with 17 homers, 68 RBI and a .459 on-base percentage in just 75 games.
The teenager is now taking that domination to an entirely new level. Saturday, against the Detroit Tigers Triple-A affiliate, Guerrero Jr. went deep for the fourth consecutive game.

It might not have been a moonshot, but Vlad’s ability to go opposite field would make his father quite proud.
What this 19-year-old kid is doing at the highest level minor league ball has to offer has not been seen in the recent history of the game.
Including this homer, Vlad is hitting .452 in 11 games. That came after a stint in Double-A that saw Guerrero Jr. hit .402 with 14 homers and 60 RBI.
Yeah, he might get a call-up to the big league club here soon. Because, why the heck not?
