The Kansas City Royals have a mashing prospect in AAA right now. Wil Myers has absolutely dominated AA and AAA, hitting .311 with 35 homers and 101 RBI’s. MLB Rumors are starting to swirl that the Royals plan on calling Myers up in September. I can’t believe they haven’t done it yet, as this guy is the real deal.
The Royals were supposed to be in the running for a division crown this year, but their kids haven’t turned out to be as good as advertised. Eric Hosmer has really struggled this year, and their starting rotation has been downright bad. I understand they’ve had some injury problems, but I think it’s time to see if Wil Myers can help this team right now, and maybe build some momentum heading into 2013.
After the year Myers has put up, how in the heck can you leave him AAA? It’s not like he has anything to prove down there. Maybe they want to see him hit 40 homers before they call him up? I mean come on- this isn’t that hard. You trade Jeff Francoeur to a team that needs a bat, and you call Myers up to take his spot. Not tough.
I can’t see Royals fans being happy with Myers being kept in AAA after destroying everything in his way in the minors, and I suspect their going to agree with me here: it’s time to call up Wil Myers and let him play.
If Eric Hosmer can come back strong, a Hosmer, Myers, Mike Moustakas middle of the order would be pretty tough in the american league.
We’ll see what happens, but hopefully this happens now.
