Lourdes Gurriel Jr. made his major-league debut in April with the Toronto Blue Jays, while his brother Yulieski is in his third major-league season with the Houston Astros.
As of September 22, they have similar slash lines, Yulieski’s .287/.321./.425 to Lourdes’ .287/.315/.455. However, Yulieski has been a regular with the Astros the entire season, while Lourdes Jr. has appeared in 63 games so far this season.
They made history on September 21 when they both hit two home runs on the same day, the first time for MLB brothers to have multi-home outings on the same day.
The Cuban-born brothers will oppose each other for the first time on September 24, when the Astros and Blue Jays face off. They are separated in age by almost nine years.
