Wil Myers: Headed to Tampa Bay

Rotowire.com
Update: Myers has been traded to the Rays in a deal that will send James Shields to Kansas City, Fox Sports' Ken Rosenthal reports. The Royals also will receive pitcher Wade Davis and a player to be named or cash from Tampa Bay, while the Rays will receive Jake Odorizzi, Mike Montgomery and another prospect.

Recommendation: Providing a much needed ace capable of racking up a high innings count, Shields should provide a big boost to the Royals' pitching staff in 2013 and 2014, but how Myers develops as a big league hitter will ultimately determine if this trade works for both sides, or if one team is a clear winner. Myers should be a candidate to start in a corner-outfield spot on Opening Day, while it's unclear if he would play left field, or if Matt Joyce would move out of right to accommodate Myers.
