|Wil Myers not posting great numbers at Triple-A|
|by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com|
(5/5/13) Rays outfielder Wil Myers isn't doing much right now to force the team to bring him up to the majors. The highly touted prospect is batting just .275 with a .422 slugging percentage and 37 strikeouts in 26 games for Triple-A Durham.
Myers is batting .179 (7 for 39) with 17 strikeouts in his last 10 games through Saturday. He has three home runs, four doubles and 17 RBI on the season. He has walked 15 times, which has brought his on-base percentage up to .367.
|Wil Myers' time is nearing?|

(4/25/13) The Tampa Bay Rays are probably going to play this close to their vests, but it has to be getting close to outfielder Wil Myers' time, based on the following: the Rays have scored fewer runs (79) than the Brewers, Indians and Astros. They're seventh-worst in batting average and ninth-worst in OBP. Only seven teams have lower slugging percentages.
The Rays are currently fourth in the five-team AL East, but -- and this is crazy talk this early -- are just two games out of the second wild card spot (in other words, they're still competitive). Myers, hitting .328 with 12 RBI and an .884 OPS, could be a difference-maker for the team. It's easy to assume that the Rays will wait until June and the vague Super-2 line. But this is a franchise that may value wins in a tight race over saving money several years down the road -- especially considering how open the Rays have been to locking up their younger players in long-term contracts at what turns out to be a nice discount.
Myers is ready to contribute at the major league level and the Rays could use his bat in the lineup. The call-up date may not mean a lot in terms of adding a player already owned in 78 precent of leagues, but it could be a nice early boost for his owners.

|Wil Myers leaves game after fouling ball off foot|

(4/18/13) Rays outfield prospect Wil Myers was pulled from Thursday's game after fouling a ball off his foot.
When Myers was taken out of the game, some assumed he was headed to the majors. That is not the case. Myers is considered day-to-day. He's hitting .292/.390/.375 in 48 at-bats.
|With Bryce Harper and Mike Trout already in the big leagues by late April, the prospect hounds turned their attention to Wil Myers, the third of the big outfield prospects whose promotion seemed just a matter of time for the non-contending Royals. Not only had he bounced back from a disappointing 2011 in which he battled a knee injury, but he was finally putting up the big power numbers the scouts had long predicted for him (and while retaining his usual high on-base percentage, no less). But the Royals kept putting off the decision and putting off the decision until, eventually, the season was over. They then traded Myers to the Rays this offseason, which suggests they didn't think they had a need for him. OK, so they got a pretty nice haul in return, but when's the last time a rebuilding club gave up arguably the game's top prospect for any sort of haul? Whatever lack of appreciation the Royals showed for Myers last year the Rays are sure to correct in 2013. They certainly have an opening in their outfield, and they certainly have a need for offense. Most likely, they'll plug him into the lineup right away, and if he follows Harper's and Trout's lead, he'll deliver right away. He does come with risk, as all young players do, but Myers' upside makes him worthy of being a top-40 outfielder. (Updated 1/4/13)|
