Alejandro Kirk is fighting to make the Blue Jays roster this spring, and Tanner Roark‘s latest endorsement should certainly help his cause.

Despite never having played about High-A ball prior to last season, Kirk was called up to the big leagues and he more than held his own as a 21-year-old. He ended up slashing .375/.400/.583 over 24 at-bats, and even earned a playoff start as a DH for his fine work.
