Ex-Plum star Kirilloff named Florida State League Player of the Month

Player of the week was nice for Alex Kirilloff, but player of the month is even nicer.

The former Plum baseball star was named the Class A Advanced Florida State League’s Player of the Month on Monday after a scorching July at the plate.

Playing for the Minnesota Twins’ High Single-A affiliate, the Fort Myers Miracle, Kirilloff hit .396 with 12 doubles, two triples, two home runs and 20 RBIs. He was named the league’s player of the week July 23.

Since his call-up to Fort Myers in late June, Kirilloff — the Twins’ 2016 first-round draft pick — is hitting .370 with 15 doubles, two triples, three homers and 31 RBIs in 38 games.

TribLIVE commenting policy

You are solely responsible for your comments and by using you agree to our Terms of Service.

We moderate comments. Our goal is to provide substantive commentary for a general readership. By screening submissions, we provide a space where readers can share intelligent and informed commentary that enhances the quality of our news and information.

While most comments will be posted if they are on-topic and not abusive, moderating decisions are subjective. We will make them as carefully and consistently as we can. Because of the volume of reader comments, we cannot review individual moderation decisions with readers.

We value thoughtful comments representing a range of views that make their point quickly and politely. We make an effort to protect discussions from repeated comments either by the same reader or different readers

We follow the same standards for taste as the daily newspaper. A few things we won't tolerate: personal attacks, obscenity, vulgarity, profanity (including expletives and letters followed by dashes), commercial promotion, impersonations, incoherence, proselytizing and SHOUTING. Don't include URLs to Web sites.

We do not edit comments. They are either approved or deleted. We reserve the right to edit a comment that is quoted or excerpted in an article. In this case, we may fix spelling and punctuation.

We welcome strong opinions and criticism of our work, but we don't want comments to become bogged down with discussions of our policies and we will moderate accordingly.

We appreciate it when readers and people quoted in articles or blog posts point out errors of fact or emphasis and will investigate all assertions. But these suggestions should be sent via e-mail. To avoid distracting other readers, we won't publish comments that suggest a correction. Instead, corrections will be made in a blog post or in an article.
