7 Prospects With Former MLB Stars As Fathers

June 19, 2020

Not only have the Toronto Blue Jays built an exciting lineup full of former top prospects, but many of those young talents have last names familiar to even the most casual of baseball fans.

Third baseman Vladimir Guerrero Jr., of course, is the son of Hall of Fame right fielder Vladimir Guerrero Sr. Back when he was just Vladimir Guerrero, the Dominican-born outfielder hit .318 with 449 home runs during his 16-season MLB career, the most notable portions of which were spent with the Montreal Expos and Los Angeles Angels.

Second baseman Cavan Biggio also has a Hall of Fame father, as his dad, Craig, racked up 3,060 hits in a 20-season career that was spent entirely with the Houston Astros.

On a normal team, Blue Jays' shortstop Bo Bichette would have the father who was the most successful major leaguer. While his dad, Dante, isn't a Hall of Famer, he was a four-time All-Star with the Colorado Rockies during a 14-season career.

Though it may seem like it, the Blue Jays haven't hogged all of the talented young players who have famous fathers in the league. Here's a look at some prospects whose last names will stand out:
