Did Blue Jays uber prospect Vladimir Guerrero Jr. finally get the call? That’s what baseball fans are currently losing their minds over after he took to IG to post two photos of himself at JFK Airport. The Blue Jays begin a two-game series against the Mets in New York Tuesday, so it sure seems like he broke the news of his own call up, right? RIGHT?

Not exactly. Scroll down on Vlad’s IG page for a bit and you’ll see he posted the same photos back in December of 2017, which leaves everyone wondering what the **** is going on here. Is Vlad Jr. really messing with us right now?

The answer, sadly, is yes. His teammate, Connor Panas, recently posted a photo of Vlad Jr. taking a photo with a fan in airport. He’s wearing white shoes and a hoodie as opposed to the black sneakers/shirt combo on IG.

Vlad Jr.’s Double A teammate posted this on his Insta an hour ago. Vladdy wearing different shoes than in the airport pic. I’m so confused. pic.twitter.com/ocoMYfxDMK

UPDATE: Vlad deleted the post. He won’t be with the Jays tomorrow… probably.

Vladimir Guerrero nearly broke the internet with his IG post from JFK airport, but it turns out it's an old photo he reposted. Source confirms Vlad Jr. is not being called up to join the Blue Jays. False alarm.

Obviously Vlad Jr.’s ascent to the bigs is just a matter of time at this point. He’s slashing an absurd .397/.447/.645 in Double-A and is making headlines for hitting dongs off hotels. If we are lucky he will be up and terrorizing the Yankees and Red Sox very soon.

Wow!! Vlad Jr. did it again. Second home run of the night, this one off the hotel! 💪🏨 https://t.co/XV4W7L4U70 pic.twitter.com/j5ImMhl8uq
