8/12:Tampa Bay Rays outfielder Kevin Kiermaier (hip) will start his rehab assignment with Charlotte Saturday. The plan is for him to play DH the first two games and then move to the outfield Tuesday. There is still not a concrete return date that you can rely on but this was a huge step forward. Mallex Smith has played center field in Kiermaier's absence but has not done enough to fuel a positional argument when Kiermaier is healthy. The acquisition of Lucas Duda does add some competition to the outfield but it is too early to panic. Kiermaier has seven home runs and 10 stolen bases in 62 games this season, providing decent value in deeper leagues.--Jamie Mellor - RotoBaller
