Kirilloff underwent successful surgery on his right wrist Friday, Do-Hyoung Park of MLB.com reports.
Kirilloff's procedure didn't reveal anything concerning, and he'll head to Florida soon to begin his recovery process. The 23-year-old is expected to require eight weeks of rehab after his procedure, meaning he would miss the remainder of the 2021 season.
Kirilloff is expected to require eight weeks of rehab after undergoing surgery on his right wrist later this week and won't retake the field for the Twins this season, Betsy Helfand of the St. Paul Pioneer Press reports.
The 23-year-old landed on the injured list Wednesday and will see his rookie campaign come to an early end. Kirilloff sprained the wrist back in May, and he'll undergo a procedure to repair the torn ligament after a recent dip in productivity. He could rejoin the Twins for the final stretch of the season to finish his rehab and be around the team, but he won't return to game action in 2021. Kirilloff will finish his rookie campaign with a .251/.299/.423 slash line, eight home runs, 11 doubles, 34 RBI and 23 runs in 231 plate appearances.
The Twins will place Kirilloff on the 10-day injured list Wednesday, Do-Hyoung Park of MLB.com reports. He's scheduled to undergo surgery later this week to address a ligament tear in his right wrist, according to Betsy Helfand of the St. Paul Pioneer Press.
Kirilloff sprained the wrist in May and was able to play through the issue after a brief stint on the IL, but after his productivity had started to wane over the past two weeks, he chose to have a corrective procedure. The Twins likely won't have a timeline for Kirilloff's return until after surgery is performed, but he could be at risk of missing the remainder of the season. Minnesota will call up Willians Astudillo from Triple-A St. Paul in a corresponding move.
Kirilloff is out of the lineup for Tuesday's game against the White Sox.
After he was on the bench for one half of Monday's doubleheader, Kirilloff will take a seat again in favor of Miguel Sano. The rookie is a 1-for-15 slump over his past five games, but his .722 OPS on the season and the Twins' status as a non-contender should give him a decent amount of job security moving forward.
Kirilloff is out of the lineup for the first game of Monday's doubleheader with the White Sox.
Miguel Sano will get the nod at first base in place of Kirilloff, ending a streak of six consecutive starts for the rookie. Expect Kirilloff -- who is hitting .245 with two home runs and seven RBI through 13 games in July -- to re-enter the lineup for the second game of the twin bill.
Kirilloff is out of the lineup Thursday against the Tigers.
Kirillof started the past nine games and will head to the bench Thursday with lefty Tarik Skubal starting for Detroit. Miguel Sano will start at first base while Trevor Larnach, Gilberto Celestino and Max Kepler start from left to right in the outfield.
Kirilloff is not in the starting lineup Sunday against Cleveland.
Kirilloff was absent from Saturday's lineup before the game got postponed due to rain, and he remains out of the starting nine Sunday with lefty Sam Hentges' start getting pushed back one day. Miguel Sano will play first base and bat sixth.
Kirilloff isn't starting Saturday against Cleveland.
Kirilloff blasted his sixth home run of the season during Friday's win over Cleveland, but he'll get a day off Saturday. Miguel Sano will start at first base, while Trevor Larnach will take over in right field.
Kirilloff went 1-for-4 with a two-run home run in Friday's 8-7 win over Cleveland.
The 23-year-old gave Minnesota its first lead of the game with his third-inning homer. Kirilloff is slashing .260/.303/.442 with six home runs, 26 RBI, 16 runs scored and a stolen base across 165 plate appearances. He seems to be manager Rocco Baldelli's preferred option at first base versus right-handed pitchers, while Miguel Sano is more likely to draw in against southpaws.
Kirilloff went 2-for-4 with two walks, an RBI and a stolen base in Monday's 7-5 extra-innings win over the Reds.
The steal was his first in 39 big-league games -- not surprising for a player with a career high of seven (on 13 attempts) in the minors. Kirilloff has picked up his pace a bit at the plate in June, slashing .288/.354/.407 through 17 contests, but the 23-year-old hasn't yet met his lofty expectations.
Kiriloff is not starting Saturday against Texas.
Kiriloff isn't necessarily at risk of slipping into a true bench role, but the returns of Max Kepler (hamstring) and Byron Buxton (hip) over the last two days can't help but make the Twins' outfield considerably more crowded. Kepler, Buxton and Trevor Larnach will be the outfielders Saturday.
Kirilloff went 1-for-4 with a solo home run in Monday's 4-3 loss to the Mariners.
Kirilloff took Marco Gonzales deep to center field to break a 1-1 tie in the fourth inning. It was the 23-year-old's first long ball since May 2 and his first RBI in 10 days. He hasn't been particularly impressive, as he's slashing .254/.292/.443 with 5 home runs, 19 RBI and 15 runs scored through his first two months at the major-league level. Things should naturally become easier for him as he continues to get more reps.
Kirilloff is not in the starting lineup Sunday against the Astros.
Kirilloff suffered an ankle sprain Thursday but was able to return to the lineup for the first two games of the series against Houston. The outfielder will get a breather Sunday with Minnesota going up against southpaw Framber Valdez. Rob Refsnyder will return from a hamstring issue to start in right field Sunday.
Kirilloff (ankle) is in the starting lineup Friday against the Astros, Betsy Helfand of the St. Paul Pioneer Press reports.
Kirilloff sprained his ankle in Thursday's game against the Yankees, but he'll be able to stay in lineup for Friday's series opener against Houston, batting fourth as the right fielder.
Kirilloff (ankle) is considered day-to-day after suffering an ankle sprain Thursday against the Yankees, Betsy Helfand of the St. Paul Pioneer Press reports.
Manager Rocco Baldelli elaborated that Kirilloff might need a day or two to recover, but the skipper sounded optimistic that placement on the injured list would not be necessary. That's promising news for both Kirilloff and the Twins, who are also currently without Byron Buxton (hip) and Max Kepler (hamstring).
Kirilloff exited Thursday's game with a low-grade left ankle sprain, Do-Hyoung Park of MLB.com reports
Kirilloff suffered the injury while attempting to play a ball near the wall early in the game. Though Byron Buxton (hip) is nearing a return, any extended absence for Kirilloff will continue to test the Twins' outfield depth. It's unclear whether a stint on the injured list will be required.
Kirilloff exited Thursday's contest due to an apparent leg injury, Aaron Gleeman of The Athletic reports.
Kirilloff appeared to suffer the injury while playing a ball off the wall in the first inning. The severity is unknown at this time, though the Twins are already thin in the outfield due to a number of sidelined players. Gilberto Celestino entered the game in Kirilloff's place.
Kirilloff is out of the lineup Tuesday against the Yankees.
Kirilloff is 3-for-17 over his past five games and will take a seat Tuesday with lefty Jordan Montgomery starting for New York. Trevor Larnach and Kyle Garlick will cover the corner outfield spots for the Twins.
Kirilloff is not in Thursday's lineup against the Royals.
The Twins' top prospect has started 12 straight games, with three of those coming against left-handed starters, so while a lefty (Kris Bubic) is on the hill for Kansas City, this seems like just a standard day off. He is hitting .265 with zero home runs, 14 strikeouts and four walks in 49 at-bats since returning from a wrist injury May 21. Kyle Garlick will start in right field while Trevor Larnach starts in left.
Kirilloff went 3-for-4 with three singles and a walk in Sunday's 6-3 loss to Kansas City.
Despite a productive day at the plate, Kirilloff didn't get involved in any run-scoring plays. He produced three of Minnesota's five hits in the game, although the team also drew seven walks. The outfielder is slashing .256/.289/.474 with four home runs, 15 RBI, 12 runs scored and no stolen bases in 83 plate appearances this year. He's mainly hitting between third and fifth in the order, which should put him in a good position to get involved on offense.
