Rays OF to undergo surgery on thumb

Tampa Bay Rays

Kiermaier was injured Sunday while sliding head first into second base in a 10-4 loss to the Philadelphia Phillies.

Kiermaier was undergoing an MRI this morning and the Rays should know more before tonight's game against Texas.

Kiermaier has missed extended periods of time the last two seasons, including a fractured hip previous year and a broken left wrist in 2016. This'll now be three straight seasons in which Kiermaier has missed multiple months due to injury, having previously been shelved by a fractured wrist and a fractured hip.

The Rays have been in this position before, each of the last two years actually, waiting for test results but expecting bad news regarding an injury to centerfielder Kevin Kiermaier.


"It's beyond frustrating", Cash said after Sunday's game. "We are all exhausted of [Kiermaier] getting hurt and there's nothing he can do about". Busting around to second base. His poor play, coupled with another long-term injury, has the 27-year-old understandably upset. Chris Archer and Alex Colome are a perennial fixtures on the rumor mill, though each struggled to a dismal start of his own.

"It's just another freak accident".

"I kind of expected it", he said. "The hardest part about all this is I feel like I let a lot of people down. I harped on this in spring training all year, I said I just want to stay healthy for my teammates and put my talents on display for a full year, and that's in jeopardy right now".

Cash said Mallex Smith, who has been in left field, will get the bulk of playing time in center.
