Well, it’s official, Rays’ top prospect Wil Myers has been promoted and will join the Rays when they travel to Boston. To make room on the roster, Ryan Roberts has been optioned to triple-A.
Myers will wear no. 9.
The Rays have an open spot on the 40-man roster, so nobody needed to be designated for assignment.
Myers will almost certainly play everyday or at least most days. So expect Myers to be in the starting lineup on Tuesday.
Myers was hitting .283 with 14 home runs in triple-A. He does have 71 strikeouts in 63 games. However, he was hitting much better recently, batting .354 with 10 HR in his last 23 games.
