Tampa Bay Rays put center-fielder Kevin Kiermaier on the quadriceps tense injured list for 10 days before the match on Tuesday night at the Boston Red Sox.
Kiermaier was removed from the match on Monday in the third inning due to quadriceps tension. He felt similar tension during spring training.
With four strikeouts in four games this season, the outstanding defensive player is 1-11.
Kiermaier, who turns 31 on April 22, has an average career of .247, but is very valuable for a great play in the center field. He has won three Gold Glove Awards during seven full seasons.
Kiermaier hit .217 with three home runs and 22 RBIs in 49 games during the shortened 60-game 2020 season. He was on par with the total home runs in the postseason, 19-7 in two explosions in the World Series where Rays lost to the Los Angeles Dodgers in six games.
Overall, Keirmaier has 71 home runs, 257 RBIs and 97 stolen bases in 733 Major League Baseball games, all using Rays.
Manuel Margot, a former center fielder of the San Diego Padres in 2017-19, was most often found in Kiermaier’s spots.
Tampa Bay filled the opening of the roster by recalling infielder Kevin Padro from another training site. 24-year-old Padro has only 40 triple A experiences in 554 minor league contests.
Rays also claimed catcher Davy Gruyon with an exemption from the Cincinnati Reds. 25-year-old Grullon is 2 to 12 in five major league games with the Philadelphia Phillies (2019) and the Red Sox (2020).
Right-handed Chaz Roe (shoulder) moved to IL for 60 days and opened a roster spot for 40 people in Gouron.
