|Wil Myers could fill DH role regularly |
|by R.J. White | CBSSports.com|
(3/7/14) The Rays could use outfielder Wil Myers as the team's designated hitter regularly, MLB.com reports.
"Part of it is, he doesn't mind," manager Joe Maddon said. "You've got young players who really don't mind doing that. Just the mental part helps. They're not fighting it. They still would do it anyway, but the acceptance and willingness to do it helps somewhat."
Myers still has a ways to go with his defense, but the team continues to drill him and look for improvement.
"We're doing a lot of work [with Myers in the field]," Maddon said. "Drill work during camp, and he's already started to make some pretty good adjustments, I think."
Myers was named the AL Rookie of the Year last season after hitting .293/.354/.478 with 13 homers, 53 RBI and five stolen bases over 335 at-bats.

(11/11/13) Rays outfielder Wil Myers was named American League Rookie of the Year for 2013, picking up 23 of 33 first-place votes. Myers became the first player in the AL to win the Rookie of the Year award in fewer than 100 games played. Ryan Howard did so in the National League.
Myers made his big-league debut on June 18, and finished the season with a .293/.354/.478 slash line with 13 homers, 53 RBI and five stolen bases over 335 at-bats (88 games).
|Wil Myers nearly hits one out |

(10/9/13) Wil Myers nearly kept Tampa Bay's playoff chances alive against the Red Sox in Game 4 of the American League Division Series on Tuesday.
Myers, who was removed from Game 3 because of leg cramps, returned to the starting lineup and nearly hit one out of the park to cut the deficit in half in the ninth. Boston closer Koji Uehara forced him to fly out to the warning track for the first out of the ninth inning. He reached on an infield single in the fourth and finished 1 for 4 in a 3-1 defeat.
Myers batted .100 (2 for 20) during the four-game series. He owned a .293/.354/.478 slash line over 335 at-bats during the regular season.
|Wil Myers leaves due to cramping |
|by Jeff Lippman | CBSSports.com|
(10/7/13) Rays outfielder Wil Myers had to leave after his at--bat in the bottom of the seventh inning Monday night during Game 3 of the American League Division Series against Boston. Myers appeared to injure his leg during a swing, but was removed with cramping in both legs, the Tampa Bay Times reports.
Myers received IV fluids for the cramping while the game was still going on. The injury is considered minor and the outfieldier should be available going forward for Tampa Bay, should the season move past Monday's game.
Myers was 0 for 3 in the game before exiting with Matt Joyce, the DH to start the game, moving to right field. He walked once and has yet to record a hit during the ALDS. Myers was the cleanup batter for the Rays Monday.
The rookie had a phenomenal season, which would end if the Rays lose Monday. He hit .293 over 335 at-bats during the regular season with 13 homers, 23 doubles, 53 RBI and five stolen bases.

(9/27/13) Rays outfielder Wil Myers is out for Friday's game against Toronto, the Tampa Bay Times reports. Myers will grab some pine as the Rays load up with left-handers against R.A. Dickey and his knuckleball.
|Wil Myers delivered on the hype in his rookie campaign, hitting .293 with 13 home runs and 23 doubles over 335 at-bats in 2013. He had an .831 OPS and stole five bases. Heading into his sophomore season, things look pretty good for the 23-year-old. Myers can realistically hit 25 home runs, with 35 doubles, a .280 average and maybe steal up to 10 bases. If he really gets into a groove, though, we could be treated to a 30-homer, .300 hitting phenom. Depending on your degree of optimism with Myers, he could go anywhere from the fifth to 10th round in drafts this season.
