The injury is now being described as a "hockey-esque" lower-body injury, with some suggesting that Guerrero could be dealing with a hamstring issue. While he appeared to be okay, the injury returned on Tuesday when he limped to first after a hit.

But speaking on the matter, Toronto's director of player development, Gil Kim, noted that the organization is being cautious.

Guerrero, a 19-year-old third baseman, was ranked as the No. 2 overall prospect in Major League Baseball by ESPN's Keith Law.

"He feels fine, we're just being cautious with it", Fisher Cats manager John Schneider told MLB.com after Wednesday's game. "It's not expected to be anything serious". He hit a combined.323 with a.425 on-base percentage, a.485 slugging percentage, 13 homers and 76 RBIs in 119 games.

The injury at least temporarily slows Guerrero's nearly sure promotion to Triple-A Buffalo or even, as some have lobbied, the majors.
