The atmosphere surrounding Vladimir Guerrero Jr.'s major league debut Friday was so electric that his Blue Jays teammate Marcus Stroman had to compare him to another highly touted prospect.

"It's like having Zion Williamson on your team; it's like a once-in-a-lifetime kind of talent," Stroman said after Guerrero helped Toronto beat the Oakland Athletics 4-2. "So just to have the opportunity to play with him, it's amazing to look out there and see him behind me at third base. I think he's gonna give us a huge little edge, and just, like I said, just carry this momentum from this win into every other start."
