Date:

Kevin Kiermaier left Saturday's game against the Rangers with a bruised left calf.

The Rays are calling him day-to-day, but with one game left in the season, we probably won't see him again. Kiermaier was hit by a pitch in his first plate appearance but stayed in until the sixth inning when he was replaced by Mikie Mahtook in center field. He may have aggravated the injury while trying to rob a home run by Robinson Chirinos. Assuming he sits out Sunday's season finale, Kiermaier will finish 2016 with 12 HR, 37 RBI, 21 SB and a .246 average in 366 at-bats.

Sep 10 - 1:12 PM

Kevin Kiermaier finished 4-for-5 with two home runs in a loss to the Yankees on Thursday.

Kiermaier took Yankees starter CC Sabathia deep in the first inning and made a return visit in the third, mashing two of the Rays' four homers in the game. Kiermaier has quietly been red hot at the dish over the past few weeks, owning a 12-game hitting streak during which he's 20-for-50 (.400) with four homers, eight RBI and 10 runs scored. He's stolen four bases in that span for good measure. The 26-year-old possesses that tantalizing combination of speed and power, and his outfield defense alone will get him into the lineup on a regular basis, but he's yet to put it all together over a full season. Kiermaier is hitting .249/.329/.434 with 11 homers and 16 steals in 86 games overall.

He also drew a walk in the sixth and singled again in the eighth. Kiermaier has been on a roll offensively of late, improving his season slash line to .240/.322/.408. He has nine homers, 32 RBI, 16 steals, and 44 runs scored in 85 games.
