After drilling down into our google analytics we have compiled a list of the ten most visited Pennsylvania profiles on the Prep Baseball Report website in 2016.  During the month of December we will count down to the end of the year with a look at those profiles that were most viewed.

No. 2 Alex Kirilloff 

Image result for alex kirilloff minnesota twinsPBR Notes: Area Code Games (June, 2015)  Kiriloff has a long, projectable frame at 6-foot-2, 195 pounds. His BP sessions have been inconsistent and uninspiring at times, but when the game starts, things seemingly click for the Liberty recruit. He has shown some swing-and-miss tendencies in the past, but his swing is loose, quick and produces good raw power. At the Area Code Games, he squared up some elite arms. In Jupiter, he was on time and controlled at the plate, going 5-for-16 with a double and a triple. While he does play a fair amount at first base, Kiriloff is at least an average runner and moves well enough to hold down a corner outfield spot.

Kirilloff was ranked No. 1 in PA and No. 6 in the PBR combined Class of 2016 rankings. He was selected 15th overall by the Minnesota Twins in the 1st round of the 2016 MLB amateur draft and went on to be named the Appalachian League Player of the Year in his first season of professional baseball.
