Jays Legend Epy Guerrero Passes Away in D.R at Age 71

Sad news hits the Jays today, and baseball in general, as legendary Blue Jays scout Epy Guerrero has died at the age of 86. Guerrero is considered one of the best Latin American scouts of all time, and was the leader for the Jays in the D.R when their presence on the island was the largest in baseball.He is responsible for the signing of 86 major league players, and many more who never made it to the bigs.

For the Blue Jays, he signed many major league players and all stars, like Tony Fernandez, Carlos Delgado, Alfredo Griffin, Kelvim Escobar and more. He is also credited with the acquisition of George Bell from the Phillies in the 1980 Rule V Draft.
