The Toronto Blue Jays have had a bit of an up and down season thus far, but they have remained in playoff position and have been able to keep pace with the New York Yankees and Tampa Bay Rays.
They’ve hit a bit of a rough patch, as they sit at 22-20 after their walk-off loss to the St. Louis Cardinals on Monday night.
But there are two players who have been bright spots for this Toronto squad.
Vladimir Guerrero Jr. and Bo Bichette are the youngest players in Blue Jays history to reach the 50-career homer mark.
The Blue Jays payed homage to their two stars by tweeting about their accomplishments and including a video of Bichette going yard.

Bichette, Guerrero Key Factors For Jays
Both of these stars are still young and have bright futures ahead of them.
To reach such a milestone so early in their careers is very impressive and shows that the sky is the limit for not only them, but this ballclub as well.
These two players are quickly turning into two of the best in the game.
If the Blue Jays are going to get back in the race for the American League East, both Bichette and Guerrero are going to be key factors in that.
This is still a very deep and talented Blue Jays ballclub that is capable of a lot of things, home runs being one of them.
They’ll need Guerrero and Bichette to keep mashing home runs to stay in the hunt for the AL East title and to hold onto their spot in the AL Wild Card race.
We’ll see if they can keep hitting bombs and keep their team alive.NEXT: Blue Jays Get A Visit From Former MLB Ace
