Alex Kirilloff News
Minnesota Twins first baseman/outfielder Alex Kirilloff received good news when he went under the knife Wednesday. Reports are that Kirilloff had no tear in his labrum. Repairing a tear in the labrum could have kept the 25-year-old out close to a year, but he is now expected to have a typical offseason of strength and conditioning. He had the best season of his young career in 2023 but could not stay healthy a theme during his brief time in the majors. The lefty appeared in 88 games and produced a .270/.348/.445 slash line, adding 11 home runs and 41 RBI. He's someone to keep an eye on when the 2024 season comes around, as he could be an excellent post-hype sleeper for some managers if healthy.
Minnesota Twins first baseman/outfielder Alex Kirilloff (shoulder) is scheduled to undergo labrum repair surgery on his right shoulder later this month. Kirilloff was replaced on the roster for the American League Division Series against the Houston Astros by Byron Buxton when he had a setback with his shoulder, which he initially injured in July. The 25-year-old left-handed hitter went hitless in 11 plate appearances with two walks and four strikeouts in five postseason games this year. In a career-high 88 games during the regular season in his third MLB campaign, Kirilloff hit .270/.348/.445 with a career-high 11 home runs, 41 RBI and 35 runs scored in 319 trips to the plate. We should have a clearer timetable on how much time he'll miss after his surgery goes down, but it's entirely possible he won't be ready for the start of spring training in 2024.
Minnesota Twins first baseman Alex Kirilloff (shoulder) has been taken off the ALDS roster with a shoulder injury. He will be replaced by Byron Buxton. Kirilloff was removed early from Game 3 and won't make it to Game 4 on Wednesday night. He is unable to be added to the ALCS roster if the Twins are to make it that far, so his next shot at appearing would be in the World Series. Kirilloff was 0-for-9 this postseason before being taken off the roster.
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.
