  • Twins' Alex Kirilloff: Sits against left-hander

    Kirilloff is not in the lineup for Monday's game in Baltimore.

    Southpaw Cole Irvin is on the hill for the Orioles, so Kirilloff will take a seat. Christian Vazquez is getting a start in the designated hitter spot.

  • Twins' Alex Kirilloff: Sitting versus southpaw

    Kirilloff is out of the lineup for Friday's game against the Tigers.

    Kirilloff has started eight of Minnesota's 10 games this season, with both his turns on the bench coming against a left-handed starter. That trend will continue Friday as Jose Miranda serves as the designated hitter versus Detroit lefty Tarik Skubal.

  • Twins' Alex Kirilloff: Absent from lineup

    Kirilloff is not in the lineup for Monday's game versus the Dodgers.

    Kirilloff has started all six games versus right-handers this season, but he's now been on the bench both times the Twins have gone up against southpaws. Ryan Jeffers is at designated hitter and Christian Vazquez is catching.

  • Twins' Alex Kirilloff: Big day against Brewers

    Kirilloff went 4-for-4 with a walk, a double, a triple and two runs scored in Wednesday's 7-3 win over Milwaukee.

    The 26-year-old has hit safely in all five games to begin the season, but Wednesday was his first multi-hit performance. Kirilloff is 8-for-18 (.444) to kick off the campaign with three of those hits (two doubles and a triple) going for extra bases. He slashed a solid .270/.348/.445 over 88 games in 2023 with 11 homers and 41 RBI, and if he can stay healthy, Kirilloff might finally begin to deliver on the talent that made him a first-round pick back in 2016.

  • Twins' Alex Kirilloff: Gets start in outfield

    Kirilloff started in left field and went 1-for-4 with an RBI during Saturday's win over Kansas City.

    It was a surprise to see Kirilloff in the outfield after he played almost exclusively at first base and DH in spring training. He also hit second in the order, which was unexpected as well. Both show he's healthy and should be in a prime lineup spot against right-handed pitchers. Kirilloff is still expected to be the team's primary DH versus right-handed pitching.

  • Twins' Alex Kirilloff: Takes seat against lefty

    Kirilloff is out of the lineup for Thursday's season opener against the Royals.

    The Twins are going with Manuel Margot at designated hitter as the Royals throw left-hander Cole Ragans. Kirilloff is in line to be the team's primary DH versus right-handed pitching.

  • Twins' Alex Kirilloff: Full strength as spring games begin

    Kirilloff went 1-for-3 in Sunday's spring training loss to Boston as he looks fully healthy after offseason shoulder surgery. "He's in a lot better shape than we originally thought he was going to be in when the offseason started," manager Rocco Badelli stated, per Aaron Gleeman of The Athletic.

    Despite surgery in October to repair the labrum in his right shoulder, Kirilloff has played in the first two spring training games, which is a sign the team is confident in his health. Twins manager Rocco Baldelli told The Athletic that he doesn't view first base as a strict platoon since Carlos Santana is a switch hitter, meaning both could be in a lineup against righties. However, Kirilloff would likely play more DH in that scenario with Santana seen as the better glove at first base. It's still not clear how much Kirilloff will play against left-handed pitching or if he'll be used in the outfield.

  • Twins' Alex Kirilloff: Taking live batting practice

    Kirilloff (shoulder) is scheduled to take live batting practice Monday, Do-Hyoung Park of MLB.com reports.

    Kirilloff had surgery in October to repair the labrum in his right shoulder but appears to be all systems go at the start of spring training. The 26-year-old tentatively projects to see most of his starts in the designated hitter spot this season, although some action at first base and the outfield is also likely, assuming his health holds up.

  • Twins' Alex Kirilloff: Aims for start of spring schedule

    Kirilloff (shoulder) is on track for live at-bats in February and hopes to be game-ready when the Twins' spring training schedule begins, Dan Hayes of The Athletic reports.

    Kirilloff underwent surgery in October to repair the labrum in his right shoulder, but the operation wound up being less invasive than initially expected. He began hitting in January and has been ramping things up of late. Kirilloff projects as the starting first baseman assuming he's ready to roll Opening Day, but nothing is assured given his history of health issues.
