Alejandro Kirk went 2-for-5 with a home run and two RBI during Toronto's win over Chicago on Wednesday.
Kirk opened the game's scoring, hitting a single to score Santiago Espinal in the first inning and then crushed a second-inning solo home run 413 ft. to left center. For catcher-eligible players with over 150 at-bats, Kirk leads the league in batting average with .307 and has a 98th percentile strikeout rate of 10.2 this season. He continues to see consistent time at designated hitter and is hitting in the heart of a potent Blue Jay's lineup which makes him valuable in most fantasy leagues.
