|Walks keeping Kevin Kiermaier valuable despite mini-slump |
|by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com|
(7/25/14) Rays surprising rookie right fielder Kevin Kiermaier has cooled off a bit with the bat lately, but his eye at the plate has made up for it.
Kiermaier has just one hit in his last eight at-bats after an 11-for-18 tear, but has five walks in the last three games as his on-base percentage remains strong at .360. His eight home runs in 170 at-bats has resulted in a fine .553 slugging percentage this season.
