Wil Myers, beginning to rake (USAT Images)
Just a few short weeks ago, Rays prospect Wil Myers was undeniably struggling. His batting average sat below .250, and the power numbers were nothin' special. Myers wasn't exactly building a strong call-up case.
And then the assault began. Myers has pummeled International League pitching in recent days, with little mercy. Over his last 10 games, he's gone 18-for-44 with 11 extra-base hits (six homers included), and he's driven in a ridiculous 21 runs.
Last Tuesday, he hit a fourth-deck moonshot that is believed to be the longest blast in the history of home runs Durham Bulls Athletic Park.
On Sunday, he delivered a near-cycle in a win against Scranton/Wilkes-Barre, clearing the fence for the tenth time this season in a 3-for-4 performance. Myers has multiple hits in six of his last eight games, raising his slash-line to a respectable. 280/.358/.500. He's available in 73 percent of Yahoo! leagues at the moment, so most of you can stash him now for later use.Read More »from Farm Report: Wil Myers powers up
