Alex Kirilloff optioned to AAA

The Minnesota Twins have sent Alex Kirilloff to Triple-A St. Paul. In a corresponding move, the Twins selected the contract of left-handed pitcher Devin Smeltzer.

Fantasy Impact

The hope is that Kirilloff can get consistent at-bats as he works his way back for a wrist injury. He does offer fantasy managers some positional versatility on their roster once he returns to the majors.

Alex Kirilloff: no firm timetable for return from wrist injury

Alex Kirilloff, who is on a rehab assignment with the Twins' Triple-A team, has no firm timetable for a return from his wrist injury, according to Rocco Baldelli.

Fantasy Impact

Baldelli said it's not about the number of at-bats for Kirilloff, but instead depends on how his wrist feels. The fact that Kirilloff had season-ending surgery on his wrist last season and is still dealing with issues is concerning, and fantasy managers need to lower their expectations for him going forward. But, if you are waiting on him, you're going to have to deal with the uncertainty for at least a little while longer. Expect Baldelli and the Twins to update Kirilloff's status periodically.

Alex Kirilloff will begin rehab assignment next week

Alex Kirilloff will begin a rehab assignment with Triple-A St. Paul early next week.

Fantasy Impact

The hope is that Kirilloff will return to the Twins by the end of next week. The 24-year-old continues recovering from a wrist injury that has plagued him for over a year, including surgery. Fantasy managers in dynasty leagues can plug him back into the starting lineup. If you have the space to take a flyer on him in redraft leagues, the potential remains.

Alex Kirilloff headed to 10-day IL

Kirilloff will be placed on the 10-day IL. He is dealing with the same right wrist injury that cost him most of his 2021 season.

Fantasy Impact

The Twins outfielder underwent season-ending surgery last summer. He began this season 1-17 with seven strikeouts. It appears now we know why he was scuffling so bad. Kirilloff just can't catch a break. If you don't have the IL spot available, he likely is not worth holding on your bench.

Alex Kirilloff goes hitless in pinch-hit effort

Twins outfielder Alex Kirilloff, who came off the bench as a pinch-hitter during Tuesday's game against the Dodgers, went 0-for-2 when things were said and done. Minnesota fell to Los Angeles, 7-2.

Fantasy Impact

Kirilloff slashed .251/.299/.423 as a rookie in 2021 but has gone just 1-for-17 this season. Injuries held him out of action for parts of last season and Spring Training, so perhaps he's still just getting acclimated. The 24-year-old and former first-round pick is rostered in more than half of all fantasy baseball leagues.
