Kiermaier was hurt diving headfirst into first base on an infield single for the Rays in the eighth inning Saturday night. He will be evaluated on Sunday.
The two-time Gold Glove winner has missed time in each of the past three seasons due to a variety of physical issues including right hip, left wrist and right thumb injuries.
