Like many in the offseason, Toronto Blue Jays general manager Ross Atkins is eager to see the effects of Vladimir Guerrero Jr.’s weight loss on his game next season.

Using several photos, it is possible to see that the 21-year-old has been working hard since the end of last season. He would have lost up to 40 pounds according to what is advanced.

“It’s amazing to see the smile on his face, the shape he’s in and how he’s tamed his own routine,” Atkins said of Guerrero on a video conference Friday. He got better every day and you can tell he’s in a good position. “

“I can’t wait to see how it all impacts his game this year,” he added.

Guerrero, who had 250 pounds on his record, finished the last season with nine home runs and 33 RBIs in 60 games.

For Atkins, the plan is to allow his young player to return to third base when last season he was limited to first base and as a designated hitter.

Among the tries the Jays will attempt at training camp, Lourdes Gurriel Jr. is also expected to have repetitions for first and third.
