Twins outfielder Alex Kiriloff is facing two polar opposite outcomes as he rehabs from a right wrist sprain. On one hand, he will take swings soon and could return if that goes well. However, manager Rocco Baldelli also suggested surgery as an option. (Aaron Gleeman on Twitter)
Specifically, Baldelli said, "If it's an unplayable situation for Alex, I think having surgery is an option." Ultimately, these next few days will be crucial in determining his status going forward. Through 12 games this season, he has slashed .214/.227/.571 with four home runs, one walk, 11 RBI, and 13 strikeouts. He's worth a stash in all formats despite the injury, ranking 127th among hitters in the latest rest-of-season expert consensus rankings.
