DETROIT -- Tampa Bay's Gold Glove center fielder Kevin Kiermaier suffered two fractures in his left hand diving for a ball against the Detroit Tigers on Saturday.

Kiermaier was injured on James McCann's bloop single in the fifth inning. He immediately held his injured arm to his body and left the field with the help of assistant athletic trainer Paul Harker.
