The time is NOW to move VGJr to 1st base.

Yup, don't risk a bat like that at 3rd base.

Word.

#1. He's not a great 3rd base defender.
#2. He's blocking Drury/organizational depth there.
#3. He's bound to tear his achilles.

Glad he's been forced to learn some glove skills, but it's time to be smart.

That’s not the reason, the main reason you move him to 1B is because he can’t field his position. Any injury issues he’s having could happen anywhere in part because he really needs to lose some weight.

I think it's pretty clear Vladdy is going to have to lose some weight. He really hurts his value on the field right now cause he can't move well.

If he lost the weight he might not even have to move off of third immediately. His arm is good. He'd add so much value by not being immobile.

If he doesn't, I think there's a decent chance, Bichette could be the more valuable player through their careers.

Heyman's report more or less aligns with what Guerrero had to say about his left knee injury Sunday, when the rookie labeled his bout with inflammation as "nothing major." Guerrero has already missed one game with the injury and seems unlikely to be ready to go for Tuesday's series opener, but the fact that the Blue Jays aren't considering the 20-year-old as week-to-week implies some level of optimism that he'll avoid a stint on the injured list. Brandon Drury will likely handle most of the action at the hot corner for however long Guerrero is ultimately sidelined.

i wonder if Vlad's reached his final height?

Would have been nice seeing him against Kershaw tonight.
