Player News
  • Kirk is not in the lineup for Sunday's game against the Rays. Kirk has played a lot through the first three months of the season, and while a fair amount of that has been as the designated hitter, he needs a day off his feet every now and then. The 23-year-old is in the midst of a breakout and is looking like one of the best pure hitters in baseball -- not just at the catcher position -- with a .318/.409/.512 line through 69 games.

  • Kirk isn't starting the first game of Saturday's doubleheader against the Rays. Kirk drew starts in the last three games and went 2-for-11 with a double, three runs, an RBI and a walk. He'll get a breather in Saturday's matinee while Gabriel Moreno starts behind the dish and Cavan Biggio enters the lineup at first base.

  • Kirk will sit Tuesday against the Red Sox. Kirk has broken out this season to the tune of a .322/.411/.525 slash line, with his 9.7 percent strikeout rate and 10.5 percent barrel rate representing a rare combination of contact and power. That's earned him frequent opportunities as a designated hitter whenever he isn't needed behind the plate, but he won't start at either spot this time around. Gabriel Moreno will catch for Ross Stripling while George Springer rests his legs in the designated hitter spot.

  • Kirk went 2-for-4 with a three-run home run in Sunday's loss against the Brewers. Kirk launched a three-run blast in the first inning that scored George Springer and Vladimir Guerrero, the only runs that Toronto would score in the loss. The homer was Kirk's fourth in five games. Additionally, the catcher has nine hits during that span, including two two-hit performances and a four-hit game. Kirk is now slashing .322/.409/.523 on the season to go along with 10 home runs.

  • Kirk (hand) will bat cleanup as the designated hitter Saturday against the Brewers. The 23-year-old sustained a bruise on his left hand when he was clipped by the bat on a backswing during Friday's contest, but X-rays came back negative and he won't end up missing a game. Kirk has homered in his past three contests, going 7-for-14 with six RBI and four runs.
