Rays looking for more movement on the bases from Kevin Kiermaier


by Brandon Wise | CBSSports.com
(5/23/2015) Rays center fielder Kevin Kiermaier has just one stolen base in two attmepts this season. Kiermaier, who had five in 2014, is usually able to reach second base on what would be routine singles. Manager Kevin Cash is just happy with the decisions he's been making on the base paths, according to the Tampa Tribune.

"Obviously, as fast as he is, it kind of becomes glaring low, but in our eyes it's really not," Cash said. "He's made some really good decisions. He also forces hands when he turns what you'd call a single into a double numerous times. But coming into the season we want our guys to steal bases. We don’t want them to steal just to steal and get thrown out. That doesn't make sense."


Rays OF's Kevin Kiermaier, David DeJesus sit against lefty Friday


by Jason Lempert | Staff Writer
(5/22/2015) With the Rays facing a left-hander on Friday, manager Kevin Cash has loaded his lineup with right-handed swingers.

Outfielders Kevin Kiermaier and David DeJesus are being held out of the lineup against the A's. Kiermaier had started nine straight games for the Rays, but will take a seat on Friday, despite the fact he actually has a higher batting average against lefties (.267) than righties (.232).

DeJesus meanwhile has been on a tear lately. He's batting an even .400 (10 for 25) over his current seven-game hitting streak. But he's been heavily shielded against southpaws this season, having just three at-bats against left-handed pitching. 

Joey Butler will enter the lineup and bat fifth while playing left field. Brandon Guyer moves up to the leadoff spot and will play center field on Friday.
