KIERMAIER SAYS BLISTER FEELS BETTER: Outfielder Kevin Kiermaier was originally in Sunday's starting lineup when it was posted Saturday, but was removed from the lineup today. Kiermaier, who developed a blister on his right heel in Friday's Grapefruit League opener, says his understanding was that he would not play today and instead play back-to-back days against Miami (at home) and Baltimore (in Sarasota). He also said his blister feels improved.
