Rays CF Kevin Kiermaier will have surgery on Tuesday on his broken left hand and is expected to miss 8-10 weeks.

Kiermaier broke two metacarpal bones in his left hand attempting a diving catch on Saturday.

A re-evaluation on Monday in St. Petersburg by specialist Dr. Doug Carlan showed mild displacement, making surgery more necessary.
