MIAMI (AP) - Tampa Bay Rays outfielder Kevin Kiermaier is expected to be sidelined eight to 10 weeks with a broken left hand, and he’ll undergo surgery Tuesday in St. Petersburg to repair two fractures, the team said.

Kiermaier, who was hurt diving for a fly ball Saturday against the Detroit Tigers, has been placed on the disabled list. He was hitting .236 with five homers and 16 RBIs.

“Eight to 10 weeks is a very long time to be without him, but we’ll find a way to get through it,” manager Kevin Cash said before Monday’s game in Miami. “That’s a long time to be without a player as good as he is.”
