Fantasy Impact:

Guerrero was quite candid in the interview and admitted to showing up to summer camp out of shape. The 21-year-old said he wants to play third base for Toronto next year, but the team seemed set on keeping him at first base long-term once the decision was made. In hindsight, the Blue Jays probably made that decision once Guerrero showed up to summer camp overweight. Perhaps he can change their minds if he shows up to spring training moving around better. Weight aside, Guerrero still hits too many ground balls to reach his ultimate ceiling as a hitter. He'll need to fix that to pay off as an elite fantasy asset next year.
