Kiermaier promoted from Crabs to Bulls

Before outfielder Kevin Kiermaier heads to the Arizona Fall League, he'll have a few days of Triple-A experience. Kiermaier has been promoted from high-Class A Charlotte to Triple-A Durham to finish the season.

Kiermaier, named to Tampa Bay's AFL party Monday, had a .260 average in just 57 games this year for the Stone Crabs. The 22-year-old was a 31st-round draft pick in 2010.

The Bulls, with four games left in their season, were in need with infielder Reid Brignac, catcher Chris Gimenez, outfielder Rich Thompson and left-handed pitcher Cesar Ramos leaving for the Rays. They left the playoff-contending Biscuits untouched.

Kiermaier made two lengthy stays on Charlotte's disabled list this year. He was on the shelf from April 21-May 25 and June 5-July 15.
