The Rays have called up former Stone Crabs outfielder Kevin Kiermaier to join the club in Game 163 against the Texas Rangers tonight. Kiermaier is expected to be used in relief for the Rays outfield in this important win or go home game. Kiermaier hit .295 with 21 doubles and 15 triples splitting the season between Durham and Montgomery.
Kiermaier was a member of the Stone Crabs during the 2012 season. He was drafted by the Rays in the 31st round of the 2010 draft out of Parkland College.
