2016

Subscribe now to see our 2016 outlook.

2015

Players drafted in the 31st round are not supposed to make the major leagues, but Kiermaier did. Primarily known for his speed and defense, Kiermaier hit in Double-A and was doing so again in Triple-A before he was promoted when Wil Myers had to go to the disabled list. He hit the ground running and was batting .310//.349/.576 heading into the All-Star break with 22 extra-base hits and several amazing defensive plays. The second half was a different story offensively as he hit .220/.284/.335 the rest of the way with just 12 extra-base hits as the league stopped pitching him inside. Despite his quickness, he is not a good basestealer and rarely tried to steal bags when he was on base at the big league level. Despite the numbers last season, Kiermaier profiles as a fourth outfielder who will have to slash and dash for production.

2014

Kiermaier took an interesting path to Tampa Bay in the 2013 season. He began the season with Double-A Montgomery and excelled with the bat, hitting .307/.370/.434 with five home runs and 14 stolen bases before being promoted to Triple-A Durham. His prominent skill as a center fielder is that he is widely regarded as the best defensive player in the entire organization. The team felt confident enough in his defensive ability to bring him up and use him as a defensive replacement in the team's elimination game against the Rangers. Kiermaier will likely begin the 2014 season with Triple-A to develop his offense, but his skill in the field could be his ticket to the majors.
