Player Outlook
Kevin Kiermaier proved to be a good fit in Toronto last season and will return to the club on a one-year, $10 million deal for 2024. While not known for his durability, Kiermaier appeared in 129 games last season, matching the second-highest total of his career. His .419 SLG was his highest mark since 2017 and Kiermaier provided value on the bases, swiping 14 bags in 15 tries. He won a Gold Glove in center field last season at 33 years old -- his fourth Gold Glove -- and added multiple catches to his silly career highlight reel. That defense will keep him on the field, and Kiermaier handles himself well enough against lefty pitching to avoid a strict platoon, though health remains a big concern. If he manages to stay upright, a return to double-digit homers and steals is not out of the question.

  • Blue Jays' Kevin Kiermaier: Out again Monday

    Kiermaier (illness) is out of the lineup for Monday's game against the Orioles. Kiermaier will miss out on a fourth consecutive start while he's apparently still under the weather, but he was able to make an appearance as a late-inning defensive replacement in Saturday's 10-8 win over the Twins. He'll presumably be available off the bench again Monday, provided he hasn't experienced any setbacks in his recovery from the ailment. Daulton Varsho will cover center field in Kiermaier's stead in the series opener in Baltimore.

  • Blue Jays' Kevin Kiermaier: Sitting in third straight game

    Kiermaier (illness) remains out of the lineup for Sunday's game against the Twins. Kiermaier will close the weekend without making a start during the Blue Jays' series with the Twins while he continues to recover from an illness. He felt well enough to enter Saturday's 10-8 win as a late-inning defensive replacement, so Kiermaier should be available off the bench again in the series finale.

  • Blue Jays' Kevin Kiermaier: Three knocks against Philly

    Kiermaier went 3-for-4 with two RBI in Wednesday's win over the Phillies. The veteran center fielder has been productive since returning from a hip issue May 4, going 4-for-10 in three games with a homer and four RBI. Kiermaier delivered a .741 OPS last season, his best mark since 2017, but he's had a sluggish start to the current campaign, slashing .224/.278/.299 through 25 contests.

  • Blue Jays' Kevin Kiermaier: Taking seat against lefty

    Kiermaier is out of the lineup for Sunday's game against the Nationals. He'll join fellow left-handed-hitting regular Cavan Biggio on the bench as the Blue Jays replace the two with a pair of right-handed hitters (Davis Schneider and Ernie Clement, respectively) to counter Nationals southpaw MacKenzie Gore. Kiermaier returned from the 10-day injured list Saturday and popped a two-run home run in the Blue Jays' 6-3 win.

  • Blue Jays' Kevin Kiermaier: Returns from IL with homer

    Kiermaier went 1-for-4 with a two-run homer in Saturday's 6-3 win over the Nationals. Activated from the injured list earlier in the day following a minimum absence with a hip injury, Kiermaier took reliever Derek Law deep in the eighth inning to extend the Blue Jays' lead. It was his first long ball of the season and just his third extra-base hit. Kiermaier finished last season with an above-average 104 OPS+, but for fantasy purposes he remains more of an AL-only play.

  • Blue Jays' Kevin Kiermaier: Returns from IL

    The Blue Jays reinstated Kiermaier (hip) from the injured list Saturday. Kiermaier has been on the shelf since April 24 due to left hip inflammation, but he will now return to the active roster after a minimum stay on the IL. The 34-year-old was struggling to find success at the plate before his injury, slashing .193/.246/.228 across 62 plate appearances. Nathan Lukes was optioned to Triple-A Buffalo in a corresponding move.

  • Blue Jays' Kevin Kiermaier: Lands on IL with hip inflammation

    The Blue Jays placed Kiermaier on the 10-day injured list Wednesday with left hip flexor inflammation. Toronto called up utility man Addison Barger from Triple-A Buffalo as a replacement on the 26-man active roster for Kiermaier, who was forced to exit Tuesday's 3-2 loss to the Royals with the injury. Given that his injury is being termed as inflammation rather than a hip flexor strain, Kiermaier would seem to have a good chance at avoiding an extended absence, though the Blue Jays haven't provided an official timeline for his return. Kiermaier will first be eligible for activation May 4.

  • Blue Jays' Kevin Kiermaier: Exits with hip discomfort

    Kiermaier was removed from Tuesday's game against the Royals due to left hip flexor discomfort, Ben Nicholson-Smith of Sportsnet.ca reports. Kiermaier went 0-for-2 during Tuesday's loss before being replaced on defense heading into the bottom of the sixth inning. The Blue Jays are officially considering him day-to-day, so his injury doesn't appear to be too serious, but it's possible the team holds him out of the lineup for a game or two to ensure he gets back to 100 percent.

  • Blue Jays' Kevin Kiermaier: Gets Monday off

    Kiermaier is out of the lineup for Monday's game against the Royals. Kiermaier will head to the bench after he had started each of the previous four games in center field, going 5-for-13 with two doubles, one walk, two runs and two RBI over that stretch. Daulton Varsho will shift over to center field in Kiermaier's place while Davis Schneider draws a start in left field.

  • Blue Jays' Kevin Kiermaier: On base four times Wednesday

    Kiermaier went 3-for-3 with a walk and a run scored in Wednesday's loss to the Yankees. The veteran center fielder kept flipping the lineup over from the ninth slot in the order as he produced just his second multi-hit performance of the season. Kiermaier's had a slow start to the season at the plate but has begun to come around, batting .296 (8-for-27) over his last 10 games with a double, a steal, an RBI and four runs scored. His strong-side platoon role and his spot at the bottom of the batting order limit his fantasy appeal, but Kiermaier still has some value in AL-only formats.

  • Blue Jays' Kevin Kiermaier: Part-time role

    Kiermaier is not in Saturday's lineup against the Rockies. While Kiermaier generally sits against lefties, he's started to sit against some righties this week, with Davis Schneider picking up starts in left field in three of the last five games (all against right-handed starters) and Daulton Varsho shifting over to center field. Kiermaier is batting .143 with a 36.8 percent strikeout rate.

  • Blue Jays' Kevin Kiermaier: Steps out of lineup Tuesday

    Kiermaier is not in the Blue Jays' starting lineup for Tuesday's game against the Mariners. Despite facing Rays right-hander George Kirby, the Blue Jays will keep Kiermaier in the dugout for Tuesday's game and start Daulton Varsho in center field. Kiermaier has struggled to make contact early in the season, slashing .107/.194/.107 with two RBI and two stolen bases while striking out 11 times over 31 plate appearances.

  • Blue Jays' Kevin Kiermaier: Swipes second bag

    Kiermaier went 1-for-4 with a run scored and a stolen base in Monday's win over the Mariners. It's the second steal of the season for the veteran center fielder, who's otherwise had a tough start to 2024. Kiermaier has been a fixture in the lineup against right-handed pitching, as expected, but he's hitting just .107 (3-for-28) through 10 games and is still looking for his first extra-base hit.
