2018 FANTASY BASEBALL PROSPECT WATCH: VLADIMIR GUERRERO J.R CHOP OFF THE OLD BLOCK

When the Washington Nationals promoted 19-year-old outfield prospect Juan Soto on Sunday, it gave the notion that a major league team bringing up a player who still has a "1" in front of their age is something that is no longer automatically tossed out of the discussion.  Thus, one has to wonder how much longer the Toronto Blue Jays will wait before calling up their own 19-year-old stud in third baseman Vladimir Guerrero Jr. who has done nothing so far at Double-A to dispute his reputation as the very best hitting prospect in all of baseball.  Looking just like his Hall of Fame father, Guerrero Jr. is showing incredible pitch recognition skills and an extreme high-contact approach that has him hitting an insane .407 with 7 home runs and 41 RBI in just 41 games.  It is truly ridiculous the fact Guerrero Jr. has a K/9 rate of just 8.8 as I can't ever remember such a low number in that category at any level.  Add in a decent 8.8 BB/9 rate and Guerrero Jr. should be up already with the Blue Jays who could use a spark as they try to keep up with the New York Yankees and the Boston Red Sox this season.  By now Guerrero Jr. should be owned in all leagues given his insane ceiling and we can certainly envision him being as high as a second-round pick in 2019 fantasy baseball drafts if he comes up soon enough.  This is truly a can't miss guy in every sense of the word.
