I had heard this morning that Rodgers Communications didn't want to compete with hockey game 7s, so they were going to hold his debut until Friday.  Seems fishy to delay his debut in a dome due to rain.

Not today :-( ... debut postponed due to rain!

Samardzija is off to a pretty solid start for me as a low risk $1 investment, thank you very much.

As Eugene says, latest word is that he will debut April 23rd vs Giants with Gopherball King Jeff Samardzija on the mound ... is there an over/under for number of pitches until first HR?  You set the line, I'll take the "under" :-)

The April 23 homestead can't come soon enough.  

From BA:

Vladimir Guerrero Jr., 3B, Jays. Guerrero Jr. just keeps punishing the baseball, smashing a home run that left the ball park for Triple-A Buffalo. He had two hits in four at-bats with an RBI and two runs scored on the night. The top prospect in the minors is now batting .344/.432/.594 with four extra-base hits in 32 at-bats.

Gurriel was sent down mostly because of throwing errors. What this suggests is that Drury moves to second when Vlad Jr. comes up in about a week. 

Walter Shapiro WShapiro

3-5 today with a run and an RBI in AAA.  He's over the injury.  He's hitting 360/448/560 on the young season in the minors.  From what I've read he needs one more series in the minors to avoid Super-2 status.  I wonder if they hold him back until April 23 so he debuts at home.

Eugene Freedman EugeneFreed

He filled up the box score in his first "rehab" game at AAA.  2-4, 2 R, 2B, HR, 4 RBI, BB, SB.  Should be less than a week.

I love how they give advice as if this is the first time people have heard of Vlad Jr.  I can't imagine he wasn't drafted even in the shallowest of mixed redraft (draft not auction) leagues.

MLB.com's Jesse Sanchez reports that Vladimir Guerrero Jr. (oblique) is headed to Triple-A Buffalo.  The 20-year-old top third base prospect went 4-for-15 during a four-game rehab stint with High-A Dunedin and will now settle in for maybe a two-week stay at the Triple-A level. Vlad Jr. is recovered from the left oblique strain he suffered back in early March and could very well make his major league debut before the end of April. He needs to be stashed in all standard fantasy leagues.
