Prospect Pablo Guerrero, son of the immortal Vladimir Guerrero, signs with the Rangers
The Texas Rangers secured this Sunday the talent of prospect Pablo Guerrero, another of the sons of Hall of Famer Vladimir Guerrero; and the younger brother of Toronto Blue Jays star Vladimir Guerrero Jr., as part of the start of international signings in the MLB.
The Rangers have $4.1 million available to invest in prospects in this international market and their deal with Guerrero is expected to become official after their physicals.
An MLB report in Spanish ensures that Guerrero has a body similar to that of his older brother and could end up in the same position. However, he has played third base and the outfield, although the projection is for him to establish himself as a full-time first baseman.
Pablo Guerrero and Vladimir Guerrero Jr. have many physical similarities, however it remains to be seen if he can develop his offense and become a slugger.
Guerrero currently trains in the Dominican Republic with his uncle, former MLB player Wilton Guerrero, and while he’s not among the best prospects in his class, he has tremendous offensive potential.
Remember that the Rangers already have Luisangel Acuña, the younger brother of Venezuelan star Ronald Acuña Jr., in their farm system.
