[Update] The Rays announced that Kiermaier broke two bones in his hand. There is no timetable for his return yet, but it is easy to assume it is going to be a while.

[Earlier] Kevin Kiermaier injured his arm diving for a ball and the injury appears to be serious.

On a shallow liner, Kiermaier dove for the ball and his glove got caught in the grass causing his wrist to snap back. He immediately got up and ran off the field holding his arm.

The replay showed just how much his hand snapped back.

Kiermaier was clearly in pain as he ran off the field.

    Hopefully that potential out was important enough to be worth a couple of months of his season.

      You won't have to ask that question now that Jennings patrols center. DJ wouldn't get dirty for the Pope.

  2. Rob says:

    I really appreciate KK's style of play and would not want him to change his approach to the game, but an injury occuring was just a matter of time.

    • Rob says:

      Hopefully Mahtook can provide some additional lumber to make up for the defensive loss. I also think this means we'll see a lot more of LoMo since we lost a left-handed bat out of the line-up.

    • Ken J says:

      The same could be said about Brandon Guyer's hitting stance,where he stands over the plate. He is just one inside pitch from a serious injury.
