Bautista sees Vlad as good fit

MINNEAPOLIS -- When news broke that Vladimir Guerrero had signed a Minor League contract with Toronto, some questioned how he would fit into the lineup.

But Jose Bautista, for one, sounded thrilled with the move.

He pointed out the Guerrero would fit in nicely in a clubhouse that has a lot of Latin players and a good mix of veterans and youth.

"He's not very outspoken at all, but I think with the big Latin crew that we have here, I think he's going to really have fun, really enjoy himself," Bautista said. "He's going to come to work happy every day. And when you have a guy like that with a defined role ... I think he's going to be a very productive player."

"Having a lot of Latin players around him is going to make him a happy man. And happy players usually produce well," Bautista added.
