Kevin Kiermaier set career highs in both his walk rate and his on base percentage while still missing a good chunk of time recovering from his hand injury. Previously, we have looked at his diet plan, how he stuck with it, and Hanselman took a deeper dive into what was happening on Kiermaier’s 2016 player […]
