Guerrero Jr.: ‘No hard feelings’ after arbitration

DUNEDIN, Fla. – Toronto Blue Jays slugger Vladimir Guerrero Jr. says he has “no hard feelings” with the team after going through the arbitration process earlier this month.

Guerrero was awarded US$19.9 million by a three-person panel, which picked his request over the Blue Jays’ offer of $18.05 million.

Speaking publicly today at spring training for the first time since the decision, Guerrero says he understands arbitration can be part of the business.

He says he has turned the page and will be ready to go for the upcoming season.
