On Wednesday, star Minor Leaguer Vladimir Guerrero of the the Double-A New Hampshire Fisher Cats had a bit of an scare, leaving the game after suffering a lower-body injury.
Guerrero was not running at 100% to first base on his infield single, then looked uncomfortable getting to 2B on a Biggio single.
He immediately signaled to the dugout that he needed to leave the game. #BlueJays

Thankfully, after Wednesday’s game, manager John Schneider had a promising update on his young star.
Double-A New Hampshire manager John Schneider to @MiLB. "He feels fine, we're just being cautious with it. Just to make sure whenever he's back to be full strength. He checks out fine, but with him and all of our players, we're just being careful and making sure he's good to go."

Guerrero has been tearing it up at the plate this year, batting .401 with 11 home runs and 55 RBI. The son of soon-to-be Hall of Famer Vladimir Guerrero, he’s likely going to get called up to the majors soon enough. The Toronto Blue Jays have already discussed moving him up to Triple-A within the next month.
