Myers definitely appears to be in play

Sounds like Wil Myers is definitely in play.

Ken Rosenthal of FOX Sports first reported that the Rays were in discussion with the Padres about sending the 2013 American League Rookie of the Year out west for “some of the Padres’ better young prospects” and that report later was validated by others as being legitimate.

One baseball source told me the Padres were “all over the place” in what they were trying to do in regard to obtaining an outfielder and he added that the Rays wanted a player in return who was of the magnitude the 2013 Myers model rather than what the 2014 model showed. Another source simply reaffirmed that the “scuttlebutt” within the industry said Myers was in play.

Since then, this rumor has grown additional legs, suggesting the Mariners and even the Nationals are involved in what could become a complex deal involving many players.

Stay tuned. Could me an interesting day.
