Kevin Kiermaier went 1-for-5 with a homer in a loss to the Orioles on Sunday.
The homer was of the leadoff variety, and gives him 15 on the season. His improvement with the bat deserves plaudits, as he's gone from glove-first outfielder to a legitimate weapon at the top of the lineup. The only thing he hasn't done is knock in many runs, but that's tough to blame on a leadoff hitter in a mediocre lineup. He's hitting .276/.338/.455 on the season with the 15 homers and 39 RBI.

Date:

Kevin Kiermaier is getting the night off Thursday versus the Orioles.

Kiermaier has batted .311/.356/.541 with seven home runs and four stolen bases in 29 games since returning from the disabled list August 18, but Mallex Smith will start in center field and hit leadoff Thursday night against Baltimore right-hander Gabriel Ynoa.
Sep 21 - 3:24 PM

Kevin Kiermaier went 2-for-5 with a solo homer in the Rays' loss to the Yankees on Wednesday.

The hot hitting continues for Kiermaier, who entered play Wednesday slashing .323/.359/.552 since coming off the disabled list August 18. He has 33 hits, six home runs, 16 RBI, three stolen bases, and 18 runs scored in that 24-game span.
Sep 13 - 5:08 PM

Kevin Kiermaier stayed hot on Wednesday, belting a two-run homer in the Rays' loss to the Twins.

Kiermaier tied the game at 6-6 with his drive over the right-center field wall in the bottom of the fifth inning. He now has 27 hits, 14 RBI, and 16 runs scored in 18 games since returning from the disabled list August 18. The rangy center fielder has also tallied three stolen bases in that span. He should be owned in most standard mixed fantasy leagues for the stretch run.
Sep 6 - 4:40 PM

Kevin Kiermaier went 3-for-4 with a double, two RBI, a stolen base, and two runs scored in the Rays' defeat of the Twins on Monday.

Kiermaier doubled in the bottom of the first, singled and scored in the bottom of the third, and contributed a two-run single to the Rays' four-run bottom of the sixth. He also reached on force out and scored his second run of the evening in the bottom of the eighth. Injuries have limited the dynamic center fielder to 78 games here in 2017, but he possesses the kind of skillset you want on your fantasy roster for the stretch run.
Sep 4 - 10:52 PM

Kevin Kiermaier went 2-for-4 with two runs scored as the Rays topped the White Sox on Friday.

Kiermaier led off the game with a single to center field against Reynaldo Lopez before scoring on a two-run homer from Logan Morrison. He later singled in the third inning before coming home to score on a single from Morrison. Kiermaier is batting .355 (27-for-76) with four homers, 12 RBI, two steals, and 13 runs scored over 19 games since returning from the disabled list. Locked in as the Rays’ leadoff man, he deserves more attention in mixed fantasy leagues.
Sep 1 - 11:20 PM

Kevin Kiermaier went 3-for-4 with two home runs, three RBI, three runs scored and a stolen base in a loss to the Blue Jays on Wednesday.

He also worked a walk just for good measure. It is hard to find a better performance than that in the losing side of a boxscore. He slugged a two-run dinger in the third inning and added a solo shot in the fifth. The big game jolts his slash line up to .276/.345/.461 with 10 home runs, 36 runs and 26 RBI in 67 games. He's stolen 11 bases in 15 attempts. He spent two months on the disabled list with a fractured hip before returning to action a week ago.
Aug 24 - 1:16 AM

Kevin Kiermaier homered Sunday in the Rays' defeat of the Mariners.

It was his first major league homer since he fractured his hip back in early June. Kiermaier also singled in the win and is now 5-for-12 with three runs scored since returning from the disabled list August 18. The talented center fielder is capable of providing sneaky fantasy value for the stretch run.
Aug 20 - 4:02 PM

Rays activated OF Kevin Kiermaier from the 60-day disabled list.

Kiermaier is ready to roll after missing over two months of action with a fractured hip (he also had a minor back issue last month). He was just 3-for-24 on a rehab assignment and might need a few extra days off initially, but fantasy owners should feel free to re-insert Kiermaier into their lineups. He's in center field and batting leadoff Friday.
Aug 18 - 12:29 PM

Kevin Kiermaier (hip) is eyeing a return this weekend, per Marc Topkin of the Tampa Bay Times.

Kiermaier is just 1-for-15 through four rehab games at High-A Charlotte, but if he feels good after playing a full nine innings of center field on Thursday it sounds like the Rays will activate him from the disabled list ahead of Friday's series opener against the visiting Mariners. Kiermaier has been on the shelf since early June because of a fractured hip. He also came down with a minor back issue in late July.
Aug 17 - 8:43 AM

Kevin Kiermaier (hip) will play center field for High-A Charlotte on Tuesday, Wednesday, and Thursday.

He will probably then shift his rehab assignment to Triple-A Durham for a couple of games before returning to the Rays' active roster early next week. Kiermaier, out since early June with a fractured hip, stands 1-for-9 with three strikeouts through two rehab games with the Charlotte Stone Crabs.
Aug 15 - 5:37 PM

Kevin Kiermaier, who is on the way back from a fractured hip, is set to begin a rehab assignment in A-ball on Saturday.

The plan is for Kiermaier to DH twice this weekend and then head out to center field on Tuesday. If all goes well, he could rejoin the Rays in 7-10 days.
Aug 11 - 3:51 PM

Kevin Kiermaier (hip, back) is still limited to light baseball activities.

Kiermaier suffered a setback on a minor league rehab assignment late last month and won't increase the intensity of his workouts until he is completely pain-free. The rangy center fielder has been sidelined since the second week of June because of a fractured right hip and there is no current timetable for his return. He's recently been fighting through back discomfort.
Aug 8 - 4:50 PM

Kevin Kiermaier (hip, back) said Friday that he's feeling better, but he won't resume baseball activities until he's completely pain-free.

Out since mid-June with a fractured right hip, Kiermaier had a setback on his rehab assignment this week when he came down with a stiff back. He won't be ready to return next week as hoped, but it doesn't sound like the setback should push him back too far.
Aug 4 - 4:07 PM

Kevin Kiermaier (hip) is likely to be shut down from his rehab assignment for a few more days due to back stiffness.

Kiermaier, who is rehabbing from a hip fracture, came down with some hip tightness two games into his minor league rehab assignment with High-A Charlotte. He was originally expected to rejoin the Rays when first eligible on August 9, but that timetable could be pushed back now.
