Rays manager Kevin Cash said Kiermaier is being withheld from the lineup Wednesday against the Red Sox due to left hamstring discomfort, radio broadcaster Steve Carney reports.

Kiermaier's absence from the lineup appears to be a matter of precaution, with Cash noting that the 31-year-old will still be available off the bench. The Rays are hopeful that with a day out of the lineup followed by a team off day Thursday, Kiermaier will be ready to rejoin the starting nine for Friday's series opener in Detroit.
