1Marcus Stroman is still young, but he has established himself as one of the most exciting pitchers in the Major Leagues with the Toronto Blue Jays. It's true that he still has to improve to become a real superstar, but he's going the right way.
And now, the 26-year-old has put an eye on two exciting prospects that, according to him, are going to make a huge impact in the game. These two young players are no others than Vladimir Guerrero Jr. and Bo Bichette. Marcus Stroman told to MLB.com's reporter Gregor Chisholm, that he's ready to see them in a Major League's field:
I'm ready for Bo and Vladdy to be on the big-league roster, to be honest. I don't think those guys should wait. I want them on my team. I think they could help us win, so that's all I'm going to say there
Stroman didn't hold back his excitement towards the potential of these two young stars, as one of them is the son of Hall of Famer Vladimir Guerrero, as is certain that the Jr. has some of his father's skills and Bichette's father was a 4-times All-Star:
I feel like these guys are like legends that you've never seen. I'm around, I've seen them in cages, I've seen some of their games on the minor-league side. Those guys are special. You don't get too many players like that to come across an organization.
Both players had spectacular numbers last year in the minor leagues, as Vlad Jr. slammed 13 homers with a .323 average over 119 games. On the other hand, Bichette came up with 14 home runs notching an AVG of .362 in 110 games.
