Alejandro Kirk hits solo home run on Thursday

Alejandro Kirk went 1-for-4 with a solo home run on Thursday against the Guardians.

Fantasy Impact:

Kirk's home run, his first of the year, left the bat at 105.5 miles per hour, one of the hardest balls he has hit all year. Kirk makes a ton of contact - his 11% strikeout rate ranks in the top five percent of the league - but he just isn't hitting the ball nearly as hard as he did last season. There's more power in his bat than he's shown, so even in single-catcher formats, he should be worth starting going forward.
