He cruises to the youngest three-time batting champion in 14 games with eight home runs and powerful blue crabs.
Vladimir Guerrero Jr. (Toronto Blue Jays) finally tied for the lead in Major League home runs. With the recent fierce momentum, he is now aiming for three batting titles.
Guerrero Jr. started as the third designated hitter in the 2021 Major League Baseball game against Baltimore Park at Camden Yaz in Baltimore, Maryland, on the 13th (Korea Standard Time) and hit a home run.
Guerrero Jr., who hit his 44th home run of the season, tied for first place in the category with Shohei Otani (LA Angels), the No. 1 home run player in the Major League. Otani only added one hit against the Houston Astros on the same day.
Just a few weeks ago, Otani’s dominance in the home run sector was likely to continue. However, Salvador Perez (Kansas City Royals), who is writing a new Major League catcher history, chased fiercely and turned it into a chaotic situation, and Guerrero Jr. is now ahead of the momentum with explosive long hits. Guerrero Jr. has a good sense of hitting enough to hit eight home runs in the last 14 games.
If Guerrero Jr. continues his momentum, he deserves to win three batting titles.
As of the 13th, Guerrero Jr. is tied for second in batting average (0.319) and third in RBI (102). There is only a three-ri difference from No. 1 Starling Marte (Auckland Athletics), and there is no significant difference from No. 1 RBI Jose Abreu (Chicago White Sox, 107) 안전공원
If Guerrero Jr., born in 1999, achieves three batting titles, he will beat Ted Williams (then 23 years old) in 1942 and set a new record for the youngest three gold medals. It is also the first time in Toronto’s club history. He will also be named the first three major league batting titles in 65 years since Mickey Mantle in 1956.
The “Son of the Monster” is shaking the Major League batting index with fierce momentum.
