The Texas Rangers signed Pablo Guerrero as an international free agent out of the Dominican Republic. He is the 16-year-old brother of Toronto Blue Jays slugger Vladimir Guerrero Jr. and son of nine-time MLB All-Star Vladimir Guerrero Sr.
Pablo Guerrero, should he make to the big leagues, will join his father, a Hall of Famer, his brother, and his uncle Wilton Guerrero as the fourth member of the family to play in the Majors.
Pablo currently plays third base and outfield, but projects as a first baseman.
Guerrero’s father, Vlad Sr., played 16 years in the Majors, including a one-year stint with the Texas Rangers in 2010 when the club made its first World Series appearance. Guerrero hit .300 with 29 home runs and 115 RBI.
Guerrero’s Hall-of-Fame career included nine All-Star Game appearances, eight Silver Slugger awards and the 2004 American League MVP award.
Guerrero Jr. plays for Toronto and is entering his fifth season as a first and third baseman. He is already a two-time All-Star and finished second in AL MVP voting in 2021.
