Vladimir Guerrero Jr. and Lourdes Gurriel Jr. have distinguished themselves as two of baseball’s top young talents. Off the field, they describe themselves as “brothers.”

The two have been playing baseball together for three years, rising from the Minor Leagues to Toronto, where they have already begun to make an impact.

Guerrero, 20, and Gurriel, 25, lean on one other as they navigate the early stages of their careers. Guerrero is in contention for the Rookie of the Year Award, while Gurriel is putting his stamp on the Blue Jays’ outfield in his second season.

MLB.com recently sat down with Guerrero and Gurriel for a bilingual interview. The rising stars discussed a variety of topics -- from their favorite moments together to which one has better vocals -- before concluding the interview by asking questions of each other. It all offers a look into a special friendship.
