2018 Fantasy Outlook
Kirlloff, the 15th overall pick in the 2016 draft, missed the 2017 season after undergoing Tommy John surgery in March. The lost year of developmental time hurts, but he should be assigned to Low-A for his age-20 season, so he’s not too far behind his contemporaries. His skill set could be more valuable in fantasy than reality, as he is destined for an outfield corner, but could hit enough to profile in the middle of a big-league lineup. Kirilloff has a smooth swing that generates plus raw power combined with an advanced, patient approach at the plate. He should have no trouble doing damage against righties, and while he only hit .275/.322/.375 with two home runs in 80 at-bats against same-handed pitching in the Appalachian League in 2016, it’s too early to say he is destined for the strong side of a platoon. He still has some room to grow at 6-foot-2, 195 pounds, and may need some time to find his swing again after a year off. Read Past Outlooks

Tallies four hits for High-A club
OFMinnesota Twins  A+
August 16, 2018
Kirilloff went 4-for-4 with a pair of doubles Wednesday in High-A Fort Myers' 3-2 win over Charlotte.
ANALYSIS
The outfielder extended his hit streak to 13 games with his fourth four-hit performance of the season. The 20-year-old hasn't shown much over-the-fence power (four homers in 209 plate appearances) since moving up to the Florida State League, but he has still maintained a solid .188 ISO thanks to his ample doubles output.

2017 Fantasy Outlook
Kirilloff, the 15th overall pick in the 2016 draft, had a strong professional debut, albeit in a limited sample size. He hit .306 with seven home runs and a .794 OPS in 55 games for Elizabethton of the rookie Appalachian League. The winner of the Perfect Game All-American Home Run Derby, Kirilloff is a converted pitcher and first baseman with the speed, athleticism and range to stick in an outfield corner. He has a smooth swing combined with an advanced, patient approach at the dish. His left-handed stroke is simple yet effective in terms of launching balls into the outfield seats. Kirilloff still has some room to grow at 6-foot-2, 195 pounds. It remains to be seen if he can be a true 30-homer threat once he matures, but he can certainly spray the ball to all fields. After the top five hitters from last year's draft class (Nick Senzel, Corey Ray, Kyle Lewis, Mickey Moniak, Blake Rutherford), a case could be made for Kirilloff heading that next tier. He should be rostered in all dynasty leagues where 100-plus prospects are owned.
