Blue Jays infielder Lourdes Gurriel Jr. has a lot to be proud of after a strong rookie season. Now, he can add one more accolade to his list of accomplishments: the cover athlete in Canada for R.B.I. Baseball 19.
Take the Field
That’s the tagline for this year’s game, and you can do so with Lourdes Gurriel Jr., who had a strong rookie season for the Jays, hitting .281 with 11 HR’s and 35 RBI’s in 65 games. His strong start earned him the July AL Rookie of the Month Award last year, and he now has another accomplishment to add to his resume.
Gurriel will follow fellow Blue Jays teammates Marcus Strowman, Kevin Pillar and Justin Smoak, as all three have also been on the cover Canada’s R.B.I. Baseball. Gurriel, when asked about being named the cover athlete, said that he was very excited, adding, “It was one of the most exciting things to ever happen to me.”
R.B.I. Baseball 19
While we know who will be on the cover of the game in Canada, there’s still a lot of details we don’t know about R.B.I. Baseball 19. We still don’t know who will be on the cover here in the United States, nor the exact date when the game will be released (although the game has been advertised for a March release). In addition, very few details about the features of the game have been made public.
R.B.I. Baseball 19 will be available on Xbox One, PlayStation 4, Nintendo Switch, as well as mobile via the Apple and Google Play stores.
