Spring Training MLB Prospect Report—March 12, 2021



Atlanta Braves

Michael Harris, the team's No. 11 prospect and one of their top talents in the lower levels of the minor leagues, swatted his first home run of the spring. Harris was impressive at the team's alternate training site over the summer and has the potential to be above-average in both hitting and power.

Detroit Tigers

— Lefthander Tarik Skubal closed Detroit's game with three innings of one-hit shutout ball with four strikeouts. He got four swings and misses, two of which game to finish strikeouts. His fastball topped at 96 mph.

Minnesota Twins

Alex Kirilloff showed why he's the team's top prospect, slamming his first homer of the spring. The blast came off of Boston starter Eduardo Rodriguez and left the bat at 106.3 mph before slamming off the batter's eye in dead center field.

San Francisco Giants

— Third baseman Will Wilson, acquired from the Angels shortly after his first test in pro ball, went 1-for-2 with three RBIs. All three of his RBIs came on a double off of Angels starter Griffin Canning.

Toronto Blue Jays

— Catcher Alejandro Kirk slammed his first Grapefruit League home run of 2021, going the opposite way against Detroit starter Michael Fulmer, who allowed three longballs in his outing. Kirk's blast left the bat at 98.8 mph and was his second hardest-hit ball of the day, behind a 103.2 mph flyout.
