Vladimir Guerrero Jr. loves playing against the New York Yankees. In 31 games in the Bronx, Guerrero has hit .289/.344/.579 with 10 home runs.
Despite his success against them, he would never don pinstripes.
In an interview with Dominican media personality Vincent Carmona Arias on the “El Dotol Nastra” YouTube channel, Guerrero made it very clear that he has zero interest in playing for the Yankees.
“I like to play in New York, I like to kill the Yankees. I would never sign with the Yankees, not even dead,” Guerrero said, via MLB insider Hector Gomez.
Guerrero Jr. has become a baseball star in his own right since his debut for Toronto in 2019. He has made back-to-back All-Star Games and led the MLB with 48 home runs, and won the AL Hank Aaron Award and the Silver Slugger Award, along with an All-MLB First-Team nod. He won his first career Gold Glove in ’22.
After his comments, he became even more a fan favorite by his fans as well as other fan bases.
At some point in the next three years, Guerrero Jr. will either sign a possible record-setting contract extension to remain with the Blue Jays, or he’ll become a free agent at age 26.WANT MORE FROM TOTALPROSPORTS? FOLLOW US ON GOOGLE NEWS.
