Vladimir Guerrero Jr. says Blue Jays won’t let him play in LIDOM this year

There is no doubt that Vladimir Guerrero Jr. has been one of the big stars of this 2021 season of MLBas it has the Toronto Blue Jays fighting for the playoffs qualification and he’s fighting himself against Shohei Ohtani and Salvador Pérez for the possibility of winning the MVP of the American League. Like all Dominicans, playing in the ball of his country is a great pride and Vladdy owes a lot to his great year having participated last season in LIDOM with the Leones del Escogido.

The truth is that Vladdy Jr. wants to play in the Dominican winter ball again for this 2021-2022 season, but as he told Héctor Gómez of Z Deportes that he does not believe that the Toronto Blue Jays will give him permission to participate in LIDOM this year .

If it were up to me, I would play every year with the Leones del Escogido. A few days ago I said to the GM of the Blue Jays, “Look, the fans are asking me if I’m going to play this year,” but from the look he gave me I don’t think he will let me play this season.

The truth is that Vladdy Jr. had a great 2020/21 campaign in LIDOM with the Leones del Escogido, where he had a .359 / .381 / .615 batting line in 10 games, hitting two home runs and driving in 11 runs.

I am a fan of the San Francisco Giants, a number one defender of Barry Bonds and a critic of the Los Angeles Dodgers. Fernando Tatis Jr., Juan Soto and Ronald Acuña are the future of baseball, Mike Trout is overrated, and the Astros deserved to be taken away from the World Series for cheating. Besides baseball, I also enjoy soccer, football, basketball, and just about any other game that includes a ball or a ball. I am also an amateur musician, penniless gamer and very nerdy. Graduated in journalism from the University of Guadalajara, I graduated in 2017. Born in the shrimp capital of the world, Escuinapa, Sinaloa. I lived in Australia for a while; i survived giant spiders, tasmanian devils and fought a kangaroo and didn’t die trying.
