Blue Jays begin search for talent to pair with Guerrero Jr.

TORONTO (AP) The Blue Jays are certain they want slugging prospect Vladimir Guerrero Jr. to be at the center of their youth movement and rebuild.

As for who is on the field around Guerrero when Toronto is ready to push for the playoffs again, that is what the team hopes to start figuring out this season.

Just two years removed from a second consecutive AL Championship Series appearance, the Blue Jays have turned over the core of those postseason teams and started transitioning to the future. All over the diamond this season, young players will be given the opportunity to establish themselves. Besides Guerrero, several more gifted prospects are advancing through the minors.
