Pablo Guerrero, the 16-year-old brother of Toronto Blue Jays slugger Vladimir Guerrero Jr. and son of nine-time MLB All-Star Vladimir Guerrero Sr., was just signed by the Texas Rangers as an international free agent out of the Dominican Republic.

The announcement of the signing took place on Sunday when the Texas Rangers revealed the names of the 17 international free agents who the team signed during the off-season.

Pablo Guerrero, should he make to the big leagues, will join his father, a Hall of Famer, his brother, and his uncle Wilton Guerrero as the fourth member of the family to play in the Majors.

“A new professional baseball player in the family, congrats to my son Pablo on signing with the Texas Rangers. Let’s keep working hard!” Vlad Sr. wrote in a Twitter post with several photos of his son.

“Keep working hard to fulfill your dreams!” Vlad Sr. added.

The Rangers now have the brother of Vladimir Guerrero Jr. as well as Luisangel Acuna, the brother of Ronald Acuna Jr., in their minor league system.

Pablo currently plays third base and outfield, but projects as a first baseman.

Vladimir Guerrero Sr. reportedly has nine kids, five of them boys, with five different women, so this might not be the last time we the Guerrero name mentioned as a MLB prospect.

In fact, one of the Vlad’s other sons, Vladi Miguel Guerrero, and his nephew Wilton Guerrero Jr. also might get the call sometime in the next few years and become the fifth and sixth members of the family to sign with a MLB team.

Vladimir Guerrero Sr. hit 449 home runs with 1,496 RBI and a .318 batting average during a 16-year Major League Baseball career.

23-year-old Vlad Jr. is well on his way to matching his father’s power numbers after leading the Majors in 2021 with 48 home runs and hitting 32 more last season.

It’s quite a talented baseball family.
