Vladimir Guerrero Jr. is running at a home run pace similar to the one he had in the 2021 season when he led the major leagues with 48 homers with the Toronto Blue Jays.

After the first 24 games played last year between the months of March and April, the powerful first baseman had a batting average of .350 with seven homers and 20 RBIs.

Yesterday, in his 26th game this season, he hit his home run number seven, a two-run shot in the first inning against the Cleveland Guardians and reached 19 RBIs.

Guerrero tracked his home run production in the previous season as follows: May (9), June (10), July (7), August (6) and September/October (9).

surprise leader

With his seventh homer, Guerrero Jr. tied for second place among Dominicans with José Ramírez of the Cleveland Guardians.

Both are behind Milwaukee Brewers shortstop Willy Adames, who with the two he blew yesterday reached eight homers.

Juan Soto yesterday gave his number six with the Washington Nationals with whom he has only produced seven runs.

Between March, April and May of the 2021 season, the excellent left-handed hitter only accumulated four complete return hits.

Manny Machado, third baseman for the San Diego Padres, has five home runs with which he also exceeds the three he achieved in the first month of last year’s campaign.

With five there is also the sensational rookie shortstop of the Houston Astros, Jeremy Peña, who has put on the spikes of Puerto Rican Carlos Correa, who signed as a free agent with the Minnesota Twins.

Wander Franco, shortstop for the Tampa Bay Rays, and Rafael Devers, third baseman for the Boston Red Sox, have four hits from four corners.

Marcell Ozuna, returning to the ranks of the Atlanta Braves after the injury and suspension that limited his actions in 2021, has also flown the fence four times with his hits.

Starling Marte, who is not a home run player, has three with the Mets, but the low production of players such as Nelson worries

Cruz (2), of the Washington Nationals, Franmil Reyes (2), of the Cleveland Guardians and Ketel Marte (1), of the Arizona Diamondbacks.
