TORONTO – Vladimir Guerrero Jr has resumed baseball activities, and has started appearing in extended spring training games at the Toronto Minor League conference in Dunedin, Fla.

Guerrero, hope No. 1 baseball, according to MLB Pipeline, has been out since March 8 because the winger is rare. He injured himself while taking a swing during a display against the Pirates, and had been held out of games ever since.

The plan is for Guerrero to eventually report to Buffalo A-Triple, but the club does not intend to do so for at least a little longer. Toronto is aware of the cold conditions in Buffalo, and the club wants to make sure that Guerrero doesn't rush anything and endanger being injured in the process.

"If it's going [to Buffalo] and he's hot and rocking the goodness of bats, there's no reason for him not to come here, "said Blue manager Jays Charlie Montoyo." But I definitely need some bats on it. Missed Spring Training; he lost a lot of time. So that's why I told him [Sunday], don't rush, take your time, make sure you feel good on the plate and we'll go from there. "

Be healthy
Reinforcements are underway for Blue Jays installation staff with Clay Buchholz, Ryan Tepera and Ryan Borucki all to join the 25-man roster sometime this month.

Tepera (right elbow) and Borucki (left elbow sore) are scheduled for Wednesday's bullying sessions. Montoyo said that Tepera could return by mid-April, and Borucki should be implemented closer to the end of the month, banning any obstacles.

The Blue Jays also received a positive update on Buchholz, who joined Toronto late in Spring Training on a one year contract. The former brave right is intended to throw 60 plots on extended spring training on Wednesday, after which he's organized to tentatively for 75 plots at Triple-A Buffalo on April 7 t .

"He's leading," said Montoyo of Buchholz, that it's not hurt and he has been spending the last few weeks being stretched. "We do well. I could play against Tampa, [April] the 13th. "

Norris is still missing
One pitcher who does not seem close to joining the big league club is Bud Norris, who is well deserved, who has also signed late at Spring Training, and is yet to finish. Montoyo revealed on Monday afternoon that Norris had been hitting 90-91 mph on the radar gun recently, and the Blue Jays wants him to approach 95.

Montoyo noted that he was not overly concerned about the lack of speed yet. Instead, Blue Jays points out that Norris did not return to Spring Training until the first week of March. Late in the camp, Norris also dealt with the right arm of pain, and only three appearances during the Grapefruit League season.

Norris has been working in Florida during extended spring training and is expected to stay there until his speed improves.

"He threw the day from the front, he was fine," said Montoyo, with a depressing response when asked about Norris.
