Rays' Kevin Kiermaier: Swats home run
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Kiermaier went 2-for-3 with a solo homer and a pair of runs batted in Tuesday in a loss to the Dodgers in Game 1 of the World Series.

Kiermaier hit a solo homer in the fifth inning off Clayton Kershaw, and with that, the longest-tenured Rays player hit his first home run off a lefty all season. The solo shot was the only damage that the Rays were able to inflict on Clayton Kershaw, who otherwise dominated their offense. The veteran managed to knock in teammate Joey Wendle in the seventh inning and was the only spark plug in a Rays offense that struggled in the opener.

Rays' Kevin Kiermaier: Ready for World Series
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Kiermaier stated Monday that his wrist is feeling better and that he's "good to go" for Game 1 of the World Series against the Dodgers on Tuesday, Marc Topkin of the Tampa Bay Times reports.

Kiermaier dealt with a wrist injury that kept him out of three games during the ALCS, but he returned to the starting lineup for Game 7 and is feeling healthy heading into Tuesday's contest following two days off. Kiermaier is 7-for-36 with five extra-base hits and four RBI so far this postseason (12 games).

by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Rays' Kevin Kiermaier: Remains sidelined
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Kiermaier (hand) remains on the bench for Game 5 of the ALCS against the Astros on Thursday.

Kiermaier exited Game 3 on Tuesday after a pitch struck him on the hand. X-rays revealed nothing worse than a bruise, but he did not play any part in Wednesday's contest. He was reportedly available off the bench, however, so he'll likely be available again if needed Thursday.

Rays' Kevin Kiermaier: Could be available off bench
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Kiermaier (hand) won't start Wednesday in Game 4 of the ALCS against the Astros but could be available off the bench, Marc Topkin of the Tampa Bay Times reports.

The X-rays on Kiermaier's hand came back negative after he was hit by a pitch Tuesday, but he'll be held out Wednesday as the Rays carry a 3-0 lead in the series. Manuel Margot will take over in center field Wednesday, leading off.

Rays' Kevin Kiermaier: X-rays return negative
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Kiermaier was diagnosed with a hand contusion after X-rays came back negative Tuesday, Lauren Shehadi reported on the TBS telecast.

Kiermaier was hit by a 99-mph fastball during the sixth inning and appeared to be in significant pain before being removed from Game 3, but he was able to avoid a fracture. The 30-year-old should be considered day-to-day. His availability for Wednesday's Game 4 is in question.

Rays' Kevin Kiermaier: Exits after HBP
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Kiermaier left Game 3 of the ALCS against the Astros on Tuesday after being hit by a pitch on the hand/wrist, Juan Toribio of MLB.com reports.

The 30-year-old was hit by a pitch as the Rays put up five runs during the top of the sixth inning, and he was replaced in the field after remaining in to run the bases. Kiermaier appeared to be in significant pain and is likely to undergo X-rays to determine if he suffered a fracture.

Kiermaier went 2-for-4 with a home run, a double, two runs and three RBI during Wednesday's Game 3 win over the Yankees.

The 30-year-old gave Tampa Bay a comfortable lead in the fourth inning, crushing a first-pitch curveball from Masahiro Tanaka 373 feet to right field. Kiermaier entered the contest 2-for-15 in the playoffs this year, but he had a pair of extra-base hits Thursday to help put the Rays ahead 2-1 in the five-game series.

Rays' Kevin Kiermaier: On bench Wednesday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Kiermaier is not in the lineup Wednesday against the Mets, Neil Solondz of the Rays Radio Network reports.

Kiermaier has generally been in a platoon role this season, though it's not completely unprecedented to see him out of the lineup against right-handed Michael Wacha, since the outfielder has sat on three previous occasions against righties this year. Manuel Margot will serve as the center fielder Wednesday.

Rays' Kevin Kiermaier: Returns with two RBI, one steal
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Kiermaier (general soreness) returned to action Tuesday and went 2-for-3 with a run scored, two RBI, one walk and one steal.

He is back in the lineup Wednesday, hitting eighth, so it looks like a few days off was all Kiermaier needed to get right. The center fielder is hitting .239 with three home runs and seven steals in 113 at-bats this season.

Rays' Kevin Kiermaier: Battling general soreness
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Kiermaier is dealing with general body soreness and is expected to sit Sunday in addition to Saturday, Marc Topkin of the Tampa Bay Times reports.

While manager Kevin Cash didn't point to any specific area of concern for the center fielder, Kiermaier himself noted that his left knee was sore after he made a sliding catch Friday. Given Cash's comments, however, that may not be the only issue for him, though he doesn't appear to be significantly hurt. Manuel Margot will start in his absence Saturday.

Rays' Kevin Kiermaier: Out of lineup
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Kiermaier is not starting Saturday against the Red Sox, Neil Solondz of the Rays Radio Network reports.

Kiermaier and Manuel Margot have typically been platooning in center field this season, but Margot will get the nod Saturday despite righty Nathan Eovaldi starting for Boston. It's just the second time all season that Kiermaier has sat against a righty, though the fact that he's gone just 3-for-18 at the plate over his last eight games could have something to do with it.

Rays' Kevin Kiermaier: Out of Thursday's lineup
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Kiermaier is not in Thursday's lineup against the Red Sox.

Many of the Rays' left-handed hitters, including Kiermaier, will head to the bench with lefty Mike Kickham on the hill for Boston. Manuel Margot will start in center field and lead off.

Rays' Kevin Kiermaier: Records sixth steal
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Kiermaier went 1-for-4 with a stolen base in a loss to the Nationals on Tuesday.

Kiermaier swiped his sixth bag of the season after his single, marking his first theft since Aug. 23. The defensive-minded outfielder is looking for a strong finish to the shortened campaign at the plate after hitting a respectable .266 in August, and he's now carrying a .250 average (4-for-16) over his first seven games in September.

Rays' Kevin Kiermaier: Breaks multi-hit slump
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Kiermaier went 2-for-3 with a double in a loss to the Nationals on Monday, his first multi-hit effort since Aug. 18.

Kiermaier is once again sporting a pedestrian average this season -- .238 -- but a career-high 13.6 percent walk rate has helped lead to a career-best .347 on-base percentage across 118 plate appearances. The Platinum Glove outfielder has now reached safely in six of his last seven starts.
