All eyes were on Vladimir Guerrero Jr. over the weekend. He made his MLB debut Friday and started all three games over the weekend. The Blue Jays third baseman went 3-for-12 with a double, one walk and three strikeouts as the team swept the A’s.
Guerrero Jr. got an ovation after every at-bat Friday. He hit a double down the right-field line in the ninth inning for his first major league hit. In 288 minor league games, Guerrero Jr. had a line of .331/.413/.531 with 44 home runs and 209 RBIs. He had 150 walks and 139 walks.
Twins outfielder Max Kepler homered for the third consecutive game Sunday. He has a line of .274/.340/.571 with 15 runs, seven home runs, and 16 RBIs.

Nationals outfielder Victor Robles went 2-for-6 with a solo home run Sunday for his fourth homer and stole two bases Saturday giving him seven.

Nationals first baseman Matt Adams hit a walk-off homer in the bottom of the 11th inning Sunday. Adams will get increased playing time with Ryan Zimmerman on the IL with plantar fasciitis.
Cody Bellinger won’t cool off. The Dodgers first baseman/outfielder hit his 14th homer Sunday. He had three RBIs and has a slash line of .427/.500/.913 with 14 home runs and 36 RBIs. He’s tied with Christian Yelich for the major league lead in home runs. Yelich left Sunday’s game with lower back tightness and is unlikely to play Monday. He’s expected to avoid the IL.
