Alex Kirilloff News
Minnesota Twins outfielder/first baseman Alex Kirilloff (wrist) started swinging a bat early in January and said he's taking 50 to 60 swings per day and is on track with what his doctors wanted to see. He's hoping for "mostly a normal" spring training, but the goal is to be healthy for the most possible regular season games in 2023. Kirilloff, a former first-rounder, tore a ligament in his right wrist in 2022 that required season-ending surgery. Wrist issues continue to be a concern for the 25-year-old left-handed slugger, as he's yet to play in more than 59 games in either of his first two MLB seasons. It remains to be seen if Kirilloff can develop high-end power in Minnesota, but he's worth taking a flier on in deeper leagues as a young hitter that could still become an impact bat with better health.
Minnesota Twins first baseman/outfielder Alex Kirilloff (wrist) has been taking full swings while working out this offseason and is expected to be ready to go for the start of spring training after needing season-ending surgery in 2022 to fix a ligament tear in his right wrist. The 25-year-old former first-round pick has only been able to play in 104 games in his two big-league seasons with the Twins due to injury, but he could be a post-hype breakout for fantasy managers if he's ever able to stay healthy for a full season. The left-handed slugger has been dealing with the same wrist injury for a few years, so it will be interesting to see what he does if he can move past it. At the right cost in fantasy drafts, Kirilloff is absolutely worth a low-cost flier.
Minnesota Twins outfielder Alex Kirilloff (wrist) will undergo season-ending wrist surgery to shorten his ulnar bone, with the goal of being ready for spring training next year. Wrist issues have really set Kirilloff back, as he's dealt with wrist injuries in three of the last four seasons. He also missed all of 2017 in the minors after undergoing Tommy John surgery, so Kirilloff just hasn't been able to stay on the field to reach his true ceiling. All of his wrist injuries could really sap the 24-year-old's power in the long term, even if he returns healthy for the start of the 2023 season. In his two major league seasons with the Twins, he's hit .251/.295/.398 with only 11 home runs, 55 RBI, 37 runs scored and a stolen base in 387 plate appearances over 104 games.
Minnesota Twins outfielder Alex Kirilloff was limited to 59 games in his first season in the majors after undergoing wrist surgery in late July. He is expected to be ready by Spring Training, whenever it officially starts. The former Twins' top prospect slashed .251/.299/.423 with eight home runs, 34 RBI, 23 runs scored, and one stolen base over 231 plate appearances in 2021.Kirilloff also posted an impressive 12.8 percent barrel rate and kept his strikeouts down by owning a low 22.5 K%. He has raw power and will develop into a solid major league hitter. The 24-year-old held a career .318 batting average and a .503 slugging percentage in the minors. He is expected to hit the bottom of the order, limiting his RBI and runs scored opportunities. ATC is on board with this estimate and projects the young slugger to slash .271/.321/.460 with 21 home runs, 66 RBI, 58 runs scored, and five stolen bases over 496 plate appearances in 2022. According to Rotoballer's Expected Draft Values, ATC's projections have Kirilloff at roughly fair value with his ADP of 190. Kiriloff can hit for power and could smash his ADP if he can put it all together in 2022.
