Blue Jays' Alejandro Kirk: Takes seat
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Kirk is out of the lineup Wednesday for Game 2 of the Blue Jays' wild-card series with the Rays.

With Vladimir Guerrero serving as the team's designated hitter Wednesday and Danny Jansen starting behind the plate, Kirk will be squeezed out of the lineup. The rookie was the DH in Tuesday's 3-1 loss, going 1-for-3 with a base hit.

Blue Jays' Alejandro Kirk: Back to bench
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Kirk is out of the lineup for Wednesday's game against the Yankees.

Though he'll take a seat Wednesday, Kirk may have inched ahead of Danny Jansen as the Blue Jays' preferred backstop. The rookie made a splash while starting behind the dish in the first two games of the series, going 5-for-7 with a home run and a double. Jansen, meanwhile, has two extra-base hits in his last 16 games combined.

Blue Jays' Alejandro Kirk: Belts first big-league homer
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Kirk went 4-for-4 with a solo home run, double and three runs scored in Monday's 11-5 win over the Yankees.

After going 2-for-10 to start his major-league career, the backstop broke out in a big way Monday. He singled and scored in the third, doubled and scored in the fourth and capped his night off with his first big-league long ball in the seventh. Kirk has shared time with Danny Jansen at catcher since being promoted Sept. 11, but could be in line for a larger portion of the at-bats if he can build off Monday's performance.

Blue Jays' Alejandro Kirk: Jumps up to big leagues
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Kirk's contract was selected by the Blue Jays on Friday.

Kirk is an interesting prospect, with an above-average arm and the potential to hit for high average, though he's making quite the jump, as he's yet to play above High-A. He produced a strong .288/.395/.446 slash line with more walks than strikeouts in 71 games at that level last season, though a significant regression should be expected given that he's skipping two levels. The Blue Jays have gotten very little at the plate from their catchers this season, however, with Danny Jansen producing a .603 OPS and Reese McGuire posting a .220 OPS, so he won't have to look all that good to earn playing time.

Blue Jays' Alejandro Kirk: Will be on 60-man roster
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Kirk will be a part of the Blue Jays' 60-man roster.

Kirk spent the majority of 2019 with High-A Dunedin, hitting .288/.395/.446 with four home runs and 36 RBI, which was good enough to earn him a spot in major-league camp this spring. The 21-year-old was effective in spring training in a limited sample, going 4-for-8 with four runs and two RBI before play was suspended. He'll get the chance to develop on the 60-man roster to begin the 2020 campaign.

Blue Jays' Alejandro Kirk: To join big-league camp
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Kirk will join the Blue Jays' big-league camp this spring.

Kirk will get to work with the big-league coaching staff for a few weeks, though he's unlikely to join them for good this season. He's yet to reach the Double-A level, though his .288/.395/.446 slash line in 71 games for High-A Dunedin was quite impressive, especially when factoring in his 13.8 percent walk rate and 11.2 percent strikeout rate.

Blue Jays' Alejandro Kirk: Hits keep coming at High-A
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Kirk went 2-for-3 with a double for High-A Dunedin on Thursday.

Since his promotion to the Florida State League, the 20-year-old catcher has slashed .323/.428/.436 through 41 games with a remarkable 23:20 BB:K. Kirk is still looking for his first homer with Dunedin after launching three in 21 games for Low-A Lansing, and power may never be a big part of his game given his 5-foot-9 frame, but his hit tool and plate discipline seem strong enough to get him to the majors if his defensive skills continue to develop.

Blue Jays' Alejandro Kirk: Big day for Dunedin
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Kirk went 3-for-3 with a walk, two doubles, a run scored and four RBI for High-A Dunedin on Tuesday.

The 20-year-old catcher is enjoying a breakout campaign. After slashing .299/.427/.519 through 21 games for Low-A Lansing to begin the season, Kirk's found another gear since a promotion to the Florida State League, posting a .367/.456/.551 line in 15 contests. Even more impressive has been his control of the strike zone -- he's compiled a 26:15 BB:K between the two levels. There are still questions about whether he'll be able to stick behind the plate as he moves up the ladder, but reports of his defensive performance at rookie ball last year offered some glimmers of optimism. If he keeps hitting like this, the Jays will make sure to find a home for Kirk somewhere on the diamond.
