Rays send Wil Myers to minor league camp


The Tampa Bay Rays sent right fielder Wil Myers to minor league camp on Saturday. The move was expected as the Rays will attempt to delay his service time from beginning which could eventually earn him Super Two status.

Myers spent the 2012 season at Triple-A batting .304 with 24 home runs and 79 RBI in 99 games last season.

Acquired from Kansas City in a trade for James Shields, Myers was ranked as the No. 4 prospect by Baseball America. This spring he did not hurt his stock as he hit .300 (9-for-30) with a triple, three doubles and an RBI in 15 games during Grapefruit League action.

The Rays also sent pitchers Juan Sandoval, J.D. Martin and Will Inman to minor league camp. All three were invited to spring training as non-roster invitees.
