Rays' Kevin Kiermaier: Could move to leadoff spot in 2017
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Kiermaier confirmed in a recent radio interview that he's being considered for a move to the leadoff spot in 2017, Marc Topkin of the Tampa Bay Times reports.

The 26-year-old's 80.0 percent contact rate and 9.9 percent walk rate are adequate for a spot at the top of the order, but his career OBP of .313 leaves plenty to be desired with respect to a table-setting role. However, Kiermaier also brings a strong stolen-base profile, having swiped 44 bags in 56 attempts through his first three major league seasons. He did slash a solid .278/.356/.434 with eight doubles, a triple, seven homers, 19 RBI and 12 stolen bases over 198 at-bats out of the two-hole in 2016, providing some reason for optimism with respect to his prospects as a potential leadoff hitter. The departed Logan Forsythe primarily handled that role for the Rays last season and provided an impressive 20 homers and 52 RBI while doing so, but also checked in with a lower OBP (.335) than the aforementioned .356 figure Kiermaier generated while hitting immediately behind him. The Gold Glove outfielder's exact slot in the batting order will be finalized during spring training.

Rays' Kevin Kiermaier: Avoids arbitration
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Kiermaier agreed to a one-year, $2.975 million contract with the Rays on Friday, avoiding arbitration, Jon Heyman of FanRag Sports reports.

A wrist injury cost Kiermaier a significant chunk of the season, but he finished strong with an .874 OPS, five homers and eight steals over the final month, bringing his totals to 12 homers and 21 steals for the year. He served as the Rays' primary No. 2 hitter down the stretch. His Gold Glove defense should keep him on the field close to every day to begin 2017.

Rays' Kevin Kiermaier: Reportedly subject of interest from Nationals at winter meetings
by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com

Kiermaier (leg) is reportedly the subject of interest from the Nationals at the MLB winter meetings, Marc Topkin of the Tampa Bay Times reports.

The 26-year-old outfielder endured an injury-riddled campaign in 2016, but did manage a career high in homers (12) and stolen bases (21). His Gold Glove-caliber defense and potential at the plate make him an appealing target, and the Rays could pull the trigger with the right offer.

Rays' Kevin Kiermaier: Sitting out Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Kiermaier (leg) is out of the lineup Sunday against the Rangers, Marc Topkin of the Tampa Bay Times reports.

Kiermaier left Saturday's game with a leg injury, which will keep him out of Tampa Bay's season finale Sunday. Mikie Mahtook will start in center field and hit second in Kiermaier's absence.

Rays' Kevin Kiermaier: Leaves game with leg injury
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Kiermaier exited Saturday's game against the Rangers after suffering an apparent injury to his leg, Marc Topkin of the Tampa Bay Times reports.

Kiermaier exited the game in the sixth inning after already making two at-bats. The Rays will have their final game of the season Sunday, and as a result, the team may simply err on the side of caution and let Kiermaier sit out.
