The Tampa Bay Rays have decided to keep the electrifying Kevin Kiermaier  on the roster when they open their series against the Oakland Athletics on Tuesday evening.
To make room for him on the roster they have optioned reliever Brandon Gomes  to their Triple-A affiliate Durham Bulls.
Over his first 11 appearances he pitched to a 2.31 ERA (3ER/11.2IP) and held the opposition to a .209 (9×43) batting average against including one home run.
Over his last nine appearances he has pitched to a 7.84 ERA (9ER/10.1IP) and the opposition is batting .346 (14×43) against him and blasting four home runs.
With Alex Cobb  scheduled to return to the team on Thursday afternoon Cesar Ramos  should be available in the bullpen. Especially since he only threw 35 pitches on Saturday against the Los Angeles Angels.Kiermaier Stays With Rays, Brandon Gomes Sent To Durham by Steve Kinsella
