Kirilloff Having Wrist Surgery


Recommended Posts

Season's over anyways, might as well avoid worsening this and just get it over with I guess. I am a little worried about Kirilloff's health since he had a wrist issue mess with his 2019 and now it happened again, but hopefully it's all good. Regardless, a big blow for watchability. On the bright side, now Sano can play every day these last 2 months so that we can know for sure if we should dump him in the offseason or not.

So in a lost season, here's what's going on with the Twins' top prospects. We've got Kiriloff, Jhoan Duran, Royce Lewis (remember him?) out for the year, an overmatched Trevor Larnach spiraling into obscurity, and Jordan Balazovic logging innings down in Wichita, with the best possible scenario being an unlikely September start.

Hopefully, with the surgery he will be 100% come spring and can put this behind him.  I don't recall, did he also have surgery in 2019?  It was the same wrist, wasn't it?

In any case, I assume his season is over.

This sucks, but as Seth said it’s not a huge surprise. Just gotta hope his wrist holds up from now on. Now Kepler and Sano can go back to playing full time in their old roles, though I thought they might bring Rooker up to play some 1B. Perhaps he’s DH-only at this point.

My guess is Rooker is the call up when Cruz is traded.

Mid to late September return? I doubt they risk playing him the rest of the year. 

I think it depends on Kirilloff. Sometimes these young guys heal and rehab faster than normal. If he’s ready to go in early September, they may as well put him on the roster, even if he doesn’t play every day.
