Out for the season with a torn ligament in his wrist. He tried to play through it, but I guess it's time to pack it in.  I started the season with Kirilloff, Trout, Eloy, and Hicks in one outfield.  Now, they're all on the IL together.

Alex Kirilloff, Triple-A St. Paul (Twins)—In his second rehab appearance since going on the injured list with a sprained right wrist on May 5, Kirilloff went 1-for-3 with a solo home run in a loss to Indianapolis. The 23-year-old outfielder was heating up before his injury, with four home runs and 10 RBIs in his last four games at the big league level.

Alex Kirilloff, 1B, Twins — Kirilloff’s first hit came in his sixth game after his call-up, as he finally shrugged off an 0-for-14 start. But this weekend, he started to turn things around. Kirilloff homered twice on Friday, once more on Saturday and once more on Sunday. He’s still hitting an avert-your-eyes .184, but four homers in 40 plate appearances gives him a more impressive .526 slugging percentage.

Gets the call and hopefully will be up now for the long haul.

Kirilloff was sent to the alternate site today. He wasn't having a great Spring and the three weeks spent working on his game will undoubtedly make a difference. It appears that Jake Cave, Kyle Garlick, and Brent Rooker are vying for the left field at-bats in Minnesota.

 Alex Kirilloff showed why he's the team's top prospect, slamming his first homer of the spring. The blast came off of Boston starter Eduardo Rodriguez and left the bat at 106.3 mph before slamming off the batter's eye in dead center field.

After reading the below comment it took me a moment to realize LL and FF weren't some new fangled advanced stats that I had to learn about.

Motivated solely as a way to help us all remember, I'll point out that it's only 1 LL and 1 FF :-)

I hoping he makes the team out of spring training.  I'll just have to remember that it's 2 LLs and 2 FFs, otherwise I can never find him the database.

In my OBP league, the extra year of seasoning on contacts has put me in a pretty outrageously strong position.

I have Kirilloff and Wander Franco in the minors and Eloy Jimenez and Vlad Jr. in the majors, but only with one year of service time coming with their supplemental draft salaries. Plus, I had forgotten I had FAABed Willi Castro at the end of 2019, meaning he's at a very low salary going into his second contract year too.  It feels great to go in with so many young bargains on offense, but I have a feeling that pitching will be brutal, because the AL has so few aces. On the positive side, we strangely add the Nationals for some local flavor and they have great starters, so it's not as devoid of starting pitching as a normal AL league.

My keepers should be the basis of a dynasty of money finishes. In almost 15 years in this league I think I've finished 2nd 5 or 6 times but never won.  So, maybe in the window with these guys it can happen once. 

My keepers OBP 5x5:

OF Eloy $7

1B Vlad Jr. $6

3B Sano $7

2B B Lowe $4 (need to extend or option)

SS W Castro $3

Minors OF Kirilloff $7

Minors SS Wander Franco $7

P Minor $8 option

P Yarbrough $4 Option

P T Rogers $6

P N Anderson $2

For my final keeper I'm considering: Kyle Seager $4 or Anthony Rendon $34

One player who is thrilled by the candor of the ex-Mariners CEO.

Alex Kirilloff (OF) MIN - Feb. 26

Kiriloff appears set to have a legitimate shot to compete for an Opening Day roster spot, Dan Hayes of The Athletic reports.

ROTOWIRE RECOMMENDS: Teams typically hold their top prospects down for the first few weeks of the season to steal an extra year of service time, prioritizing their future balance sheet over their present win total, though that's not quite a universal practice. The Twins are saying all the right things about trying to win, suggesting Kiriloff could get a shot to break camp with the team.
