How long before TB brings up Myers?
Posted by beaver on 4/30 at 12:35 pm
he's been slightly hurt but having a good season...if he is this year's Mike Trout and you're 12-13, why not go ahead and let him get his chance?

He could come in and start in left over Joyce

I just hate seeing him sit on my bench, patiently waiting

Super 2 date is middle of June so probably around then at the earliest. He's striking out a ton too, remember they kept Jennings in AAA for over a month after his super 2 because they felt he wasn't ready.

They either don't think he's ready for MLB pitching or they're waiting for the Super 2 deadline, which I believe is July 6th this year.

I think it's the latter. Wouldn't expect him up soon

But he's hitting and walking, so I wouldn't guess they are too terribly concerned.

Still, I agree. They'll wait for Super 2.

He is not Mike Trout or Bryce Harper so you may want to limit your expectations.

I agree with this. Myers is a very nice talent but Trout and Harper are once in a lifetime guys. The Rays have a lot of experience with this situation and they seem to be very very patient and in no hurry to bring him up. That being said I cannot wait until I can unleash him in my active lineup. I don't know how effective he'll adjust to the bigs initially but it will sure be fun to watch. It's almost a bummer to see him sitting on my minors list.

I didn't mean that he would be as good...I meant it more along the lines of come up and be rookie of the year material and a future star

I'm sorry for being an idiot, but what does this mean?

Don't be, only baseball nerds know what it is. If teams wait to call up a prospect after that date they basically avoid having to pay arbitration to that player for an extra year.

Tampa NEVER burns their guys super 2 clock like that, they can't afford to. An extra year of a guys rights when he is gonna be in his prime is>>>>>>>>>>>then 1/3 of his rookie season.

If Myers pans out and becomes a star the Rays stand to save a ton of money in the long run, but it's a shame they have to wait two more months given how weak their offense is. What they do could decide whether or not they make the postseason.

I thought I read somewhere that his RHP hitting is below .200 in April... no way he's called up until he rights(no pun intended) those hitting stats.
