Rays outfielder Kiermaier completes 6-year, $53.5M contract

PORT CHARLOTTE, Fla. (AP) The drive from 31st-round draft choice to one of baseball's best defensive players paid off for Kevin Kiermaier.

The Tampa Bay Rays rewarded their center fielder with a six-year, $53.5 million contract that ranks among the largest financial commitments the team has ever given a player.

"I can't say it's unbelievable because I've always dreamed of this, and I've worked ... ever since I got to junior college to try to make this moment happen," the two-time AL Gold Glove winner said Monday.
