Rays' Kevin Kiermaier: Productive in comeback win
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Kiermaier went 1-for-3 with an RBI double, a walk, a stolen base and a run in a win over Atlanta on Sunday.

The veteran outfielder was a thorn in the side of Atlanta pitching throughout the afternoon, and his seventh-inning double gave the Rays a lead they wouldn't relinquish. Kiermaier has now reached safely in seven straight starts dating back to July 3, a stretch during which he's generated a trio of multi-hit efforts and an impressive nine RBI across 27 plate appearances.

Rays' Kevin Kiermaier: Steals base in win
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Kiermaier went 2-for-4 with a walk, a steal, an RBI and a run scored in Friday's 7-6 win over Atlanta.

Kiermaier plated the Rays' first run on an infield single in the second inning and then later notched another single before stealing his sixth base of the year. The 31-year-old is slashing .242/.299/.338 with two homers, 19 RBI, 25 runs scored and a 14:62 BB:K over 214 plate appearances. Kiermaier is a bit streaky at times in terms of his production. He's currently striking out 29 percent of the time but his batting average hasn't taken a huge hit thanks to a .343 BABIP.
