Rays OF to undergo surgery on thumb

Sports Day Tampa Bay podcast: Rays' Kevin Kiermaier sprains thumb

The Tampa Bay Rays have placed Kevin Kiermaier on the 10-day disabled list due to a thumb injury.

Kiermaier has missed extended periods of time the last two seasons, including a fractured hip previous year and a broken left wrist in 2016.

A spokesman for the Rays says Kiermaier's surgery will be scheduled in the coming days.

"For this to happen, third consecutive year, another freak type of injury, it's hard to put into words", Kiermaier said.

Among 13 analysts covering Eaton Vance Corp. (Rating Scale: 1.0 Strong Buy, 2.0 Buy, 3.0 Hold, 4.0 Sell, 5.0 Strong Sell). Lincoln Natl Corp stated it has 9,905 shares or 0.09% of all its holdings. (NYSE:TWO) was sold by RISKEY MARY KATHRYN.

Now without Kiermaier patrolling center, Tampa could give rookie Johnny Field the job or shift Carlos Gomez from right field to a spot where he's made 1,030 career starts. As a result, Kiermaier's injury is unlikely to have a big impact on what was already a lost season. Their intial plan is to call up RHP Chih-Wei Hu to add an extra arm to the bullpen. Last season, for instance, he missed 61 games with a fractured right hip that he also injured on a slide.

"It's beyond frustrating", Cash said after Sunday's game.

Kiermaier, who's batting.163 with one RBI this year, missed 48 games after breaking his left wrist diving for a ball in 2016. KK going down doesn't help us get out of it.

The Rays announced Monday that the center fielder underwent an MRI that revealed a torn ligament in his right thumb. "You'd like to see a little more reward for that than missing significant time, but this is three years running now where there is a chance he's going to miss a chunk".
