Nothing seems to stop the Dominican star from Toronto Blue Jays Vladimir Guerrero Jr. in this season of 2021 in the MLB.
Guerrero Jr. The 22-year-old is finally delivering the performance expected of him since signing to pro in 2015, when he was said to have as much potential as his father, Hall of Famer Vladimir Guerrero Sr.
The infielder of the Canadian team is the leader of all Big leagues in home runs with 21 and leads the AL batters with 55 RBIs and his averages of .344 / .450 / .688.
Not only is he on track to attend his first All-Star Game, and he’s the strongest candidate to win the American League MVP. You are also making merits for a substantial raise in salary.
In his third year in the majors, Guerrero Jr. receives a salary of just $ 605,400 in 2021. Under control of the Toronto team until 2026, the Dominican could soon receive a contract extension proposal.
His offensive performance this beginning of the season and, above all, the commitment he showed to achieve better physical condition can be strong arguments for him to receive his first major contract from the Toronto organization.
Baseball analysts agree that with this performance Guerrero Jr. could afford to ask for an extension of around $ 390 million for 13 years, or about $ 30 million annually.
