Yes, the Toronto Blue Jays lost 7-5 on Thursday night to the Kansas City Royals. However, Vladimir Guerrero Jr. hit the longest home run of his entire career, an absolute blast off Brad Keller.
Guerrero Jr. is now starting to display some power and hitting over .400. In addition, he added two other hits in this game including a double, leaving him just a triple short of the cycle.
Right now, there isn’t a more dominant hitter in the game if you’re paying attention. While Guerrero Jr. has always hit balls hard, hitting them out of the park at this distance shows he’s getting some air underneath them, which should mean huge things for his numbers by season’s end.
