Wil Myers: Joins Rays

RotoWire.com Staff

Update: Myers is expected to play mostly in right field and start out hitting lower in the batting order for the Rays, the Tampa Bay Times reports.

Recommendation: The main emphasis for Myers is that he will see regular playing time for the Rays right away. The Rays have many versatile players that play all over the lineup and it would work well to have Ben Zobrist at second base, Myers in right, and Matt Joyce in left field against right-handers. The team plans to let him adjust to the pitching by having him hit lower in the order to start out. He also could play some in left field and DH if needed too. He will definitely look to provide a boost for the Rays in the race for the AL East.
