  • Twins' Alex Kirilloff: Sent down Saturday

    Kirilloff was optioned to Triple-A St. Paul on Saturday.

    Kirilloff missed several weeks with a wrist injury in mid-April and early May, and he was unable to generate much production at the plate when healthy. The 24-year-old hit just .172 with two runs, a walk and 12 strikeouts over 10 games, and he'll be sent to the minors to right the ship. Jose Miranda is starting at first base and batting sixth Saturday and should serve as the primary first baseman since Miguel Sano (knee) remains on the injured list.

  • Twins' Alex Kirilloff: Not in Wednesday's lineup

  • Twins' Alex Kirilloff: Hitting eighth, starting at 1B

    Kirilloff is starting at first base and batting eighth Saturday against the Athletics.

    He was activated Friday but was left on the bench against a lefty. He slots into the bottom third of the lineup against righty James Kaprielian. It seems that Kirilloff will have to earn both a prominent spot in the lineup and opportunities against same-handed pitching.

  • Twins' Alex Kirilloff: Activated, but not starting

    Kirilloff, who was activated from the injured list Friday, is not in the lineup against the A's.

    With lefty Zach Logue on the hill for Oakland, it seems the Twins will ease Kirilloff back into action. Gilberto Celestino is starting in center field with Byron Buxton getting the start at DH and Jose Miranda starting at first base. Also of note: Max Kepler and Trevor Larnach remain in the lineup against the southpaw.

  • Twins' Alex Kirilloff: Activated Friday

    Kirilloff (wrist) was activated from the 10-day injured list prior to Friday's game against the A's, Do-Hyoung Park of MLB.com reports.

    He hit .227 with zero extra-base hits, six strikeouts and six walks in 22 at-bats on his rehab assignment. Luis Arraez was placed on the COVID-19 injured list in a corresponding move. Kirilloff should assume a regular role with the Twins going forward.

  • Twins' Alex Kirilloff: Rehab assignment to continue

    Kirilloff (wrist) doesn't have a clear timetable for when he will return from a rehab assignment at Triple-A, the St. Paul Pioneer Press reports. "We just want to make sure when we're inserting him, we're not just inserting a guy that we think is healthy; we're inserting a guy that's ready to play and go out there and produce," manager Rocco Baldelli said.

    Kirilloff is 2-for-10 at the plate in four games for Triple-A. It was initially thought he'd be activated from the IL after as few as two rehab games, so this is a slight surprise. It may be due to Trevor Larnach playing well since Kirilloff went on the IL.

  • Twins' Alex Kirilloff: Set to begin rehab assignment

    Kirilloff (wrist) will begin a rehab assignment at Triple-A St. Paul on Tuesday, Megan Ryan of the Minneapolis Star Tribune reports.

    He's expected to serve as a designated hitter Tuesday, then play nine innings in the field in a second rehab game Wednesday before being activated from the injured list by the end of the week, if all goes well. Trevor Larnach has been serving as the Twins' primary left fielder since Kirilloff was shut down with the wrist injury earlier this month.

  • Twins' Alex Kirilloff: Nearing rehab assignment

    Kirilloff (wrist) is likely to begin a rehab assignment with Triple-A St. Paul early next week, Megan Ryan of the Minneapolis Star Tribune reports.

    All signs have been pointing to a smooth recovery for Kirilloff, who received a cortisone shot to soothe inflammation in his wrist. He is expected to return within a week, lining him up for a few rehab games with Triple-A St. Paul prior to being activated from the injured list.

  • Twins' Alex Kirilloff: Could return next week

    Kiriloff (wrist) is feeling optimistic following his cortisone shot and believes he can be back from the injured list in about a week, Betsy Helfand of the St. Paul Pioneer Press reports.

    Kiriloff has already missed over a week with wrist inflammation, but it looks like he's trending in the right direction in his recovery. The cortisone injection seems to have done its job, as he resumed swinging Wednesday and believes he should be ready to return sometime soon.

  • Twins' Alex Kirilloff: Starts swinging bat

    Kirilloff (wrist) did some swinging Wednesday, which seemed to go without a setback, the Minneapolis Star Tribune reports.

    Kirilloff was placed on the 10-day injured list last week with inflammation in his surgically repaired right wrist. He had a cortisone shot and appears to be making progress. However, his injury remains a worry since the 24-year-old missed significant time in 2021 after undergoing wrist surgery. There's no timetable yet for his return.

  • Twins' Alex Kirilloff: Receives cortisone shot

    Kirilloff (wrist) received a cortisone shot Friday, Betsy Helfand of the St. Paul Pioneer Press reports.

    In addition to his cortisone shot, Kirilloff underwent imaging that didn't reveal any new issues in his wrist. The 24-year-old missed significant time in 2021 after undergoing wrist surgery, and it's not yet clear when he'll be able to return to action. However, manager Rocco Baldelli expressed optimism that Kirilloff will eventually develop a plan to manage his pain and play through the issue.
