Vladimir Guerrero Jr. (24, Toronto), one of the best sluggers in the major leagues, will not participate in the 2023 World Baseball Classic (WBC).

The Toronto Blue Jays announced on the 5th (Korean time), “Guerrero Jr. was scheduled to compete in the WBC as a representative of the Dominican Republic, but his right knee pain made it impossible to participate.”

Guerrero Jr. started an exhibition game against Tampa Bay during an ongoing Major League Spring Camp at TD Ball Park in Dunedin, Florida, but complained of pain in his right knee after an attack in the bottom of the second inning.메이저사이트

Regarding this, Toronto head coach John Schneider said, “I am currently undergoing treatment. However, the top priority is to receive treatment without participating in training or games.”

Guerrero Jr. was scheduled to join the Dominican Republic baseball team starting on the 6th, but gave up participating in the WBC due to an unexpected injury.

On the other hand, the Dominican Republic, along with the United States and Japan, is considered a strong candidate to win this tournament, but due to Guerrero Jr.’s departure, loss of power has become inevitable.
