Rays OF Kevin Kiermaier fine after missing time with soreness


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(6/29/2015) Rays outfielder Kevin Kiermaier has explained his recent absence from the lineup as general soreness "from the waist down" and is now "ready to go," per the Tampa Bay Times.

Kiermaier, who was sidelined the last two games aside from one at-bat Sunday, is back in action Monday against Cleveland.


Rays CF Kevin Kiermaier remains on roll


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(6/23/2015) One can pretty much count on Rays center fielder Kevin Kiermaier hitting safely in a game following a hitless one. It is his proven stride in June.

Kiermaier, in fact, has slammed at least one hit in every start but two this month. The latest exception was Friday - and he has come back with a vengeance. Kiermaier is 6-for-13 since then with a double, triple and four runs scored.

He has five mutli-hit performances in his last 10 games and has risen his on-base percentage to .298, its peak since May 7.


Kevin Kiermaier has six-game hit streak snapped for Rays


by Shawn Krest | CBSSports.com

Kiermaier saw his hitting streak end at six games. He hit .375 with .942 OPS over the streak. 


Kevin Kiermaier gets day off for Rays


by Shawn Krest | CBSSports.com
(6/14/2015) Rays center fielder Kevin Kiermaier is not in the team's starting lineup for Sunday's game. 

Kiermaier sits, after starting 47 games this season. Brandon Guyer slides over from left field to replace him. It's Guyer's fifth start in center. 

Replacing Guyer in left is Joey Butler, who gets his eighth start at the spot.

by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(6/12/2015) A matchup against White Sox left-hander John Danks has Rays outfielders Kevin Kiermaier and David DeJesus out of the lineup Friday night.

Rays OF Kevin Kiermaier dropped to No. 8 in lineup


by Elliott Smith | Staff Writer
(6/5/2015) Outfielder Kevin Kiermaier is hitting in the eighth spot in the Rays lineup Friday, the lowest the center fielder has hit in the order since May 10. Kiermaier has made the bulk of his appearances as the Rays' leadoff hitter. 

Kiermaier has hits in each of the last four games in which he's made a plate appearance, but is still hitting just .236 on the year. Kiermaier is hitless in 11 at-bats against the Mariners this season. 


Rays OF Kevin Kiermaier sits for third straight game vs. lefty


by Jason Lempert | Staff Writer
(6/4/2015) With the Rays facing a left-hander on Thursday, outfielder Kevin Kiermaier will be on the bench for the third straight game. Roenis Elias takes the mound for the Mariners, and Kiermaier has just nine hits in 38 at-bats against southpaws this season.

Kiermaier will likely be available off the bench on Thursday. But the team is facing another left-hander on Friday, so it remains to be seen if Kiermaier will get the start. Mikie Mathook is making the start in center field and batting eighth on Thursday.


Rays' Kevin Kiermaier slugs 10th-inning homer vs. Angels


by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(6/4/2015) Rays center fielder Kevin Kiermaier went 1 for 2 with a solo home run in his team's 6-5, 10-inning win over the Angels on Wednesday.

Kiermaier was not in the starting lineup with a lefty on the mound for the Angels, but he would enter the game in the seventh inning and ground out in his first at-bat. He stuck around to play center field and wound up launching a home run to open the 10th inning and put his team up for good.

Kiermaier has hit .236/.276/.406 with four home runs and 12 RBI in 165 at-bats.


Rays CF Kevin Kiermaier absent from lineup on Tuesday


by Jason Lempert | Staff Writer
(6/2/2015) Rays center fielder Kevin Kiermaier is being held out of Tuesday's starting lineup against the Angels. Kiermaier had started four of the last five games for the Rays, but he has just nine hits in 38 at-bats against left-handers this season. And with lefty C.J. Wilson on the mound for the Angels, Kiermaier will take a seat on Tuesday.

With Kiermaier absent from the lineup, rookie Mikie Mahtook will make his first big-league start. Mahtook, who was just recalled from Triple-A on Tuesday, will be in center field and bat eighth. 


Rays OF Kevin Kiermaier hits 10th double of season


by Jason Butt | CBSSports.com
(6/2/2015) Rays outfielder Kevin Kiermaier went 2 for 3 at the plate in Monday evening's 7-3 loss to the Angels. 

One of Kiermaier's hits went for a double, his 10th of the season. It's also the second game in a row where Kiermaier has posted a double. 

It appears Kiermaier has snapped out of his mini-slump. After going four games in a row without a hit, he's posted hits in the past three. This is Kiermaier's first multi-hit game since May 17, when he had two against the Twins. 

Kiermaier now has a slash line of .233/.273/.387.

by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(5/29/2015) A trio of ailing Rays are ready to roll Friday night in Baltimore. Outfielder Kevin Kiermaier (ankle), shortstop Asdrubal Cabrera (groin) and right fielder Steven Souza are all in the lineup.

Rays CF Kevin Kiermaier exits Wednesday's game after HBP


by Jason Lempert | Staff Writer
(5/27/2015) Rays center fielder Kevin Kiermaier left Wednesday's game in the eighth inning. Kiermaier was hit by a pitch in his right ankle in the sixth and stayed in until being lifted for a defensive replacement to start the eighth. He was 0 for 2 before departing.

Kiermaier underwent X-rays on his ankle, with the results coming back negative. Kiermaier told the Tampa Tribune "It's all good. I'll be good to go." Kiermaier seems to be fine heading into Friday's contest in Baltimore.


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. 


Rays' Kevin Kiermaier out of lineup Monday


by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(5/11/2015) Rays center fielder Kevin Kiermaier is out of the starting lineup for the second time in three games Monday.

Kiermaier served as the team's leadoff hitter for much of last week, but was slotted eighth Sunday. The Rays are facing a third straight lefty Monday night, which explains while the lefty swinging Kiermaier has been featured less in recent days; his .681 OPS against southpaws is 122 points fewer than his mark against righties.

The Rays are favorites (-115) against the Yankees at home Monday.


Rays' Kevin Kiermaier out of lineup Saturday


by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(5/9/2015) Rays center fielder Kevin Kiermaier is not in the starting lineup for Saturday's game against the Rangers.

by Brandon Wise | CBSSports.com

Rays' Desmond Jennings (knee) remains out of lineup Monday


by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(4/27/2015) Rays outfielder Desmond Jennings is not in the starting lineup for a second straight game Monday against the Yankees.

"I think he's feeling better," Rays manager Kevin Cash said, per MLB.com. "He's a big part of what we're doing, and we need to get him healthy and back in the lineup. We don't want to rush anything right now."

Jennings came out of Saturday's game with knee soreness and appears to still be dealing with the issue two days later. He said that his knee is "fine" and that he's not going on the disabled list but doesn't know when he'll play next, reports the Tampa Bay Times.

"It just started bothering me," Jennings said. "I'm trying to play as soon as possible. Just keep getting treatment and doing some stuff and go from there."
