Tampa Bay Rays center fielder Kevin Kiermaier is scheduled to undergo hand surgery on Tuesday and is expected to miss eight to 10 weeks, the Tampa Bay Times reported.
Kiermaier suffered two broken metacarpal bones while attempting to make a diving catch during Saturday's game against the Detroit Tigers.
Kiermaier, considered one of the league's elite defenders, is hitting .236 with five home runs and 16 RBIs.
Mikie Mahtook is scheduled to start Monday's game in center field for the Rays. Desmond Jennings is also expected to get playing time in center while Kiermaier is sidelined.
