"Vladimir Guerrero Jr. Forget the 'best shape of his life' stuff. Even in what seems like a slow start to his career, Vladito has a 115 OPS+ in a bit more than a full season of playing time. We’re spoiled for comps, but his 38/19 K/UIBB last year is excellent for a 21-year-old in the modern game. The breakout is coming. His ADP is 55.8, which means I probably have to take him with that fourth-round pick or lose him."
