REPORT: Kiermaier, Rays Agree To Extension

One of the faces of the Tampa Bay Rays franchise will finally get paid like a face of a franchise.

The Rays and outfielder Kevin Kiermaier have reached an agreement on a new extension of at least six years and worth $50 million or more, according to Marc Topkin of the Tampa Bay Times.

The center fielder, who will turn 27 in April, is coming off a 2016 season that saw him hit .246 / .331 / .410 with 12 home runs and 37 RBI in 105 games after missing nearly two months with a broken hand.

Topkin says the team still needs to draw up final paperwork and Kiermaier would still have to undergo a physical.

The team has not confirmed the signing.
