Toronto Blue Jays third baseman Vladimir Guerrero Jr. will undergo an MRI after being removed from Saturday’s game against the Seattle Mariners due to left knee discomfort, manager Charlie Montoyo said postgame, according to Scott Mitchell of TSN.
Guerrero made a difficult grab on a ground ball to the left side of the infield during the top of the second inning, but it’s unclear whether that caused the ailment.
Brandon Drury replaced the rookie slugger at third base to begin the third inning.
Guerrero missed five weeks due to an injured patellar tendon in his left knee while in the minors last season. He has a .274/.345/.464 slash line with 14 homers so far in his first campaign in the majors.
