BA's prospect report:

Toronto Blue Jays

Alejandro Kirk continued the strong beginning to his big league career by adding a two-run double that gave Toronto a late cushion in a win over the Yankees. The victory clinched a spot in the playoffs for the Blue Jays, who hadn’t been to the postseason since 2016. His double, off a slider from Adam Ottavino, had an exit velocity of 107.3 mph.

I sat him for Luis Torrens in Tout this week. I'll add my name to the list of fools, Peter.

This is kind of like Willians Astudillo with an easier to spell name. But Kirk is younger and has made really solid contact so far, you know when measured by exit velocity.

Plus he walks a ton, doesn't strike out, and only one American Covid Dream League team (Nova) put a zero dollar bid on him today and won him. We're all fools, or we have two decent catchers.

From Baseball America:

Toronto Blue Jays

—Blue Jays’ No. 4 prospect Alejandro Kirk Monday put on a show, displaying his bat speed and compact swing in batting practice and later hitting a home run to left center field on an 0-2 pitch in Toronto’s intrasquad game. Kirk has had trouble staying healthy through his first three professional seasons—playing just one game in 2017, 58 in 2018 and 92 in 2019—but he hits when he’s on the field, evidenced by his .290/.403/.465 slash line between low Class A and high Class A in 2019.
