Kirk was a bit of a surprise call-up in 2020 going from High A ball to the majors and triple-slashed .375/.400/.583 in 25 plate appearances. Obviously we're dealing with an extremely small sample size

Are you a jays fan? Jansen isn't lightyears better lol... Kirk is better at framing. There's a couple if pitchers who prefer to throw to him(Ray). Jansen has a little bit better arm but.. come on. Kir

Well, unfortunately, they called Danny Jansen back up instead. This article breaks it down pretty well, but I think we may see Kirk on the move at the deadline; the Jays have a lot of catching depth,

Think I'm gonna have to cut bait here.

probably a little bit of bad luck and lack of playing time. I cut too but will be keeping an eye on him for down the road

Why was he replaced after 2 at bats?

He wasn't. I just watched him bat a 3rd.  Crushed another one down the middle and Claudio made a great catch.  Honestly, could very easily have been 3-3 today. They'll start dropping eventually.

Oh, my bad. My box score app seems wonky with their tab formulation

Is the dream dead?

 

0-13 to start the season doesn't help his case for more playing time.

The dream is alive and I still think he can hit, but will require patience. In a shallower league he's probably a cut, but i'd want him in 2 catchers still.

I have a feeling he gets going today vs kluber

Not a kirk owner at the moment, but really wanna see him get his knocks soon.

Definitely get the frustration, but Danny Jansen isn't running away with the job, either, with his .336 OPS. In most leagues, though, I wouldn't blame owners for dropping him.

If you are in a one catcher league, and currently counting on Kirk, you may be the only team in the league with C issues. I dropped Kirk last week, but still watching his performance to pounce again and pick up again. I bet others can do the same, drop and play the waiting game to see how playing time and performance shake out.

On a scale of 1-10 on my worry about his ability to hit 1 being not worried at all 10 being very worried.

I'm at a 0.

3 game hitting streak and they wanted him in the lineup so badly today, they put him in at DH for the first game and at catcher the 2nd game.

So it seems like he is starting to edge out jansen already for playing time, even getting looks at DH. Maybe time to jump aboard the kirk train again

Jansen is light years the better catcher so he will always get plenty of starts as well.
