Vladimir Guerrero Jr., son of hall of fame outfielder Vladamir Guerrero, has been a sensation throughout his entire minor league career. However while he has watched fellow top prospects Ronald Acuña Jr. and Juan Soto be called up and play at a high level, Guerrero has stayed in the minors.
This season, he's spent significant time in both AA and AAA, crushing it in both. He hit .402/.449/.671 through 61 games in AA, and is currently hitting .365/.453/.603 in AAA. However for some reason, he still hasn't been called up to the MLB. He is even projected to be one of the best hitters in baseball right away.

It is just completely absurd that he has not been called up yet.
It's not like the Blue Jays don't have room for him either. Josh Donaldson is injured, and they are reportedly trying to move him once he gets healthy. Who are they currently starting at third base then you ask? Russell Martin, yes, the catcher.
Blue Jays 35 yr old C Russell Martin is having his worst offensive season yet. He’s also played more games at 3B - where he’s a below avg defender - than any other year of his career. Its too bad Toronto doesnt have a 3B prospect who has made a mockery of the minors this year...— John Botelho (@JohnBotelhoSJ) August 20, 2018
The Blue Jays are doing Vlad, the fans, and themselves a
