Twins' Alex Kirilloff: Needs more time on rehab assignment
Manager Rocco Baldelli said Sunday that Kirilloff (shoulder) isn't expected to be activated from the 10-day injured list during the Twins' three-game series in Cleveland that begins Monday, Phil Miller of the Minneapolis Star Tribune reports.
Kirilloff has been on the shelf since July 30 with a right shoulder strain, but he looks to be closing in on a return to 100 percent health. He began a rehab assignment at Triple-A St. Paul on Wednesday and has been dialed in at the dish through his first three games, going 5-for-13 with a home run, a double and two RBI. Kirilloff hasn't experienced a setback with the shoulder, but Baldelli said that he wants the 25-year-old to pick up some more at-bats in the minors in light of his month-long layoff. Kirilloff could be a candidate to return from the IL next weekend, at which point he may settle into the strong side of a platoon at first base with Donovan Solano.... See More ... See Less

The 25-year-old has been on the shelf since July 30 with a right shoulder strain but should reclaim a regular spot in the Minnesota lineup at first base once he completes his rehab assignment....

Twins' Alex Kirilloff: Waiting for rehab assignment
Kirilloff (shoulder) says he's back to full baseball activities, but the Twins will wait several more days to see if he's healthy enough to send him on a rehab assignment, Dan Hayes of The Athletic reports.

Twins' Alex Kirilloff: Hits IL with shoulder injury
The Twins placed Kirilloff on the 10-day injured list Sunday with a right shoulder strain.
According to Audra Martin of Bally Sports North, Kirilloff had been bothered by the shoulder for the past week and even sat out Wednesday's 8-7 loss to the Mariners because of the issue. After a team off day Thursday, Kirilloff returned to the lineup for the first two games of the Twins' series in Kansas City, but he didn't come out of Saturday's 10-7 loss feeling well and will now be deactivated as a result, per Do-Hyoung Park of MLB.com. Manager Rocco Baldelli is optimistic that Kirilloff will avoid a long-term absence, but with a little over two months left in the regular season, fantasy managers in redraft leagues may be best off cutting ties with the 25-year-old in favor of a healthier option on the waiver wire. While Kirilloff is on the shelf, the Twins will likely turn to Donovan Solano and Joey Gallo to pick up most of the starts at first base.... See More ... See Less
Twins' Alex Kirilloff: Back in lineup Friday
Kirilloff (shoulder) is back in the lineup Friday at Kansas City.

Twins' Alex Kirilloff: Out Wednesday with sore shoulder
Twins manager Rocco Baldelli said that Kirilloff is out of the lineup Wednesday against the Mariners due to a sore shoulder, which Kirilloff injured on a diving play in Tuesday's 9-7 loss, Do-Hyoung Park of MLB.com reports.
After Kirilloff had started each of the last nine games, he appeared to be sitting out Wednesday's day game for maintenance purposes, but Baldelli clarified that an injury is keeping the 25-year-old out of the lineup. The Twins have an off day Thursday, and Baldelli is optimistic that Kirilloff will be ready to go for the club's weekend series in Kansas City after getting two full days of rest. Kansas City is expected to start a southpaw (Ryan Yarbrough) on Sunday, so the lefty-hitting Kirilloff is still likely to hit the bench for at least one game this weekend even if he's cleared for Friday's series opener....

Twins' Alex Kirilloff: Idle Wednesday
Kirilloff is out of the lineup for Wednesday's game against the Mariners.
