  • Blue Jays' Kevin Kiermaier: Hits grand slam Sunday

    Kiermaier went 1-for-4 with a grand slam in Sunday's 8-7 win over the Diamondbacks.

    Kiermaier capped off a seven-run rally against Zac Gallen with a first-pitch grand slam in the fourth to put the Blue Jays up 7-0. The long ball was his second this month and his fourth on the year. Sunday marked just the third time this season Kiermaier drove in multiple runs. He's now up to 18 RBI and has driven in five over his past two starts. For the year, the 34-year-old is slashing .189/.234/.306 with 11 extra-base hits, 21 runs and a 10:62 BB:K in 196 plate appearances.

  • Blue Jays' Kevin Kiermaier: On bench Saturday

    Kiermaier is out of the lineup for Saturday's game against the Diamondbacks.

    Even with righty Yilber Diaz on the mound for Arizona, the lefty-hitting Kiermaier will take a seat. Kiermaier cleared waivers Friday and it seems as though he'll remain with the Blue Jays for the time being. Davis Schneider, Daulton Varsho and George Springer fill the outfield from left to right Saturday.

  • Blue Jays' Kevin Kiermaier: Clears waivers, starting Friday

    Kiermaier told Hazel Mae of Sportsnet that he has cleared waivers, and he is starting in center field and batting eighth in Friday's series opener against the Diamondbacks.

    Kiermaier was placed on revocable waivers Thursday, after the 34-year-old has slashed just .183/.232/.290 with a 32.3 percent strikeout rate this season. He will remain in Toronto for now with no team having claimed him off waivers, and the Blue Jays have the option of keeping him around or releasing him from the roster. Kiermaier re-signed with the Blue Jays in the offseason on a one-year, $10.5 million contract.

  • Blue Jays' Kevin Kiermaier: Put on waivers

    Kiermaier, who is in the lineup for Thursday's game against the Giants, was placed on waivers earlier in the day, Joel Sherman of the New York Post reports.

    The 34-year-old re-signed with Toronto on a one-year, $10.5 million contract this offseason, but while he still offers strong defense in center field, he's struggled at the plate in 2024 with a .183/.232/.290 slash line in 70 games. Given Kiermaier's poor production and remaining salary, it's unlikely another team will be willing to put in a waiver claim, so he could stick with the Blue Jays until the club elects to outright him off the roster.

  • Blue Jays' Kevin Kiermaier: On bench Tuesday

    Kiermaier isn't in the Blue Jays' lineup Tuesday versus the Giants.

    Kiermaier had started in the last four games and went 2-for-13 with a home run in that stretch. Davis Schneider enters the lineup in left field with Daulton Varsho shifting over to center.

  • Blue Jays' Kevin Kiermaier: Hits homer in loss

    Kiermaier went 1-for-2 with a solo home run in Friday's 2-1 loss to the Mariners.

    Kiermaier got Toronto on the board in the sixth inning, but his homer was the team's lone run. The outfielder appears to be in a timeshare in center field with Daulton Varsho, though Kiermaier's main attribute is his defense. For the year, Kiermaier sports a .191/.234/.299 slash line with three homers, 13 RBI, 17 runs scored and five stolen bases across 171 plate appearances.

  • Blue Jays' Kevin Kiermaier: Returns to bench role

    Kiermaier is out of the lineup for Monday's game against the Astros.

    Kiermaier had started both of the Blue Jays' final two games of the weekend series with the Yankees and six of the last eight contests overall, but he looks set to fill more of a fourth-outfielder role moving forward. His recent uptick in playing time was due in part to Daulton Varsho missing out on three straight starts due to a back injury, but Varsho returned to action Thursday.

  • Blue Jays' Kevin Kiermaier: Filling in for Varsho again

    Kiermaier will start in center field and bat ninth in Wednesday's game against the Red Sox.

    Kiermaier will pick up his fifth consecutive start Wednesday, though Daulton Varsho is on the bench with a back injury for a fourth day in a row. The 34-year-old Kiermaier at least showed some signs of life at the plate with a three-hit performance in Tuesday's 9-4 win, and another strong game Wednesday could put him back in the mix for more playing time in the outfield even after Varsho returns. Varsho could slide over to left field to make room for Kiermaier in center on a more frequent basis if the Blue Jays choose to scale back the playing time of Davis Schneider, who is hitting .135 dating back to June 6.
