Kevin Kiermaier on Turning a Corner

When Kevin Kiermaier made his MLB debut at the end of the 2013 season, he did so as a defensive replacement. The Tampa Bay Rays dynamo was 23 years old at the time, and in the eyes of many, a glove-first fourth outfielder with questionable offensive skills. A 31st-round pick in 2012 out of D-II […]
