Or is the plan to keep him at Fort Myers, then send him out to the AFL?Would give him a chance to see better pitching, without some of the pressure.

 

Nobody is privy to what the plan is. My assumption was Kirilloff would get up to the Miracle and stay there... but obviously if he's getting 2-3 hits a game for a month, the plan is likely subject to change. He can go to the AFL regardless.

Anyone hear anything on this?Serious enough for DL stint?

Wonder if this is part of the reason for the promotion of C/1B Ben Rodriguez from Cedar Rapids to Fort Myers.

 

 

Not sure if you saw my tweet earlier this afternoon, but he fractured his thumb. Finds out tomorrow if he'll need surgery.

While it may not be possible, or realistic, the FO should “at least” be looking to getting Rooker, Lewis, Kirilloff, Gordon, Navarreto, and Wade all in Target Field by September.

In 2018? Lewis? Navarreto? Kirilloff? Wade and Gordon are probables... Rooker is a maybe, but unlikely...the other three... 2019, maybe...

There is still plenty of time for September ticket prices to drop enough so even a minor league salary can afford them. :)
