Alex Kirilloff News
Minnesota Twins outfielder Alex Kirilloff was returned to the team's alternate site following Wednesday's doubleheader with the Red Sox, according to Do-Hyoung Park of MLB.com. The move is not a surprise, as Kirilloff was added as the team's 27th man for the doubleheader. Making his major league debut, Kirilloff went 0-for-3 with a strikeout while playing in both games of the doubleheader. He should get more playing time in Minnesota throughout the year, as he is currently the team's No. 2 prospect.
Minnesota Twins outfield prospectAlex Kirilloff is starting in left field and batting sixth in Game 1 of Wednesday's doubleheader against the Boston Red Sox. This will be his MLB debut. The 23-year-old Kirilloff is the top prospect in the Twins organization and has a chance to stick around for the long haul this year if he can produce. Kirilloff could be a great all-around contributor for fantasy. Over 94 games at Double-A in 2019, he slashed .283/.343/.413 with nine home runs, 43 RBI, 47 runs and seven stolen bases. He should be rostered in just about all fantasy leagues due to his high-upside potential.
The Minnesota Twins have added the organization's top prospect, outfielder Alex Kirilloff, to the roster for Wednesday's doubleheader against the Boston Red Sox. He will fill the 27th roster spot on the team for the doubleheader. The Twins' lineup for the first game, scheduled for 2:10 PM EST, is yet to be released, however we're likely to see the highly-touted 23-year-old make his MLB debut in one of the two games today. It might be likely that he gets sent back down after today, but a strong debut could help make the Twins think twice.
Had the pandemic not reared its ugly head in 2020, we very likely would have seen Kirilloff establish himself as an MLB hitter last year. On the bright side, fans can now eagerly anticipate the 2021 arrival of a player who should have an immediate impact on the Twins' offense. Like many top prospects in the upper levels of the minor leagues, Kirilloff spent the truncated 2020 season at his team's alternate training site and is a year removed from competitive games. However, we saw a number of top prospects benefit from the revamped development focus. The young outfielder will arrive in the Majors with a strong skill set that includes the ability to hit for above-average power. And while he can get too aggressive at times, Kirilloff makes consistent, hard contact and has consistently hit for a strong batting average throughout his career. He isn't a strong fielder but he has some versatility (OF, 1B, DH), which will help him find playing time with the Twins. Barring injury, Kirilloff should be one of the top rookie hitters in the American League in 2021 and represents great value with an ADP of around 242 if he gets the playing time he deserves.
