You'd expect having a father in the Hall of Fame might create some unrealistic expectations for a young baseball player.
But for Vladimir Guerrero Jr., it seems like his feet are already big enough to fit the shoes his father left for him to fill in 2011.

Bad Vlad Jr. went 4-for-5 with a pair of runs in his Spring Training debut against the Orioles, giving Blue Jays fans a taste of what's to come in the next few years.
Guerrero Jr. has absolutely lit up the minors since being signed by the Jays in 2016, putting up a line of .305/.402/.473 over three minor league levels.
While there has been much talk regarding the future of former MVP Josh Donaldson's future as a Jay, him staying put for one more season could be the perfect bridge to bring in another MVP-caliber player in Guerrero Jr.

Even though this kid is only 18-years old, it's hard not to imagine him taking the league by storm like his father did for the better part of a decade.
