Hey, I'm thinking of getting a Les Paul Jr, but I'm wondering if modern day versions of it have a slimmer neck then the older ones with the baseball bat neck.

My current guitar is a Fender Telecaster with a modern C neck, not thick but very comfortable.
Which "older" ones are you referring to?

It's thinner than the necks they had in the 50's, for sure (those were up to an inch thick at the first fret).
I wouldn't really call the neck slim. It's chunkier than a telecaster neck, and it's very round. That's not to say it isn't comfortable, but it feels very different to a tele.
