RotoWire's Preseason Outlooks

2017

Subscribe now to see our 2017 outlook.

2016

Myers dealt with a wrist injury for most of the 2015 season and it ended up limiting him to just 60 games, leaving his three-year career high in games played at 88. Myers was an above-average hitter when healthy, as he recorded 22 extra-base hits (eight home runs) and a .253/.336/.427 batting line, solidly above league average given his home field of Petco Park. But the breakout we’re waiting for from Myers has yet to show up. The former top prospect is just 25, however, and his 37-homer season in the minor leagues came just four years ago. The wrist injury will be the main question for his 2016 season. Will he be able to say on the field? And if so, will the wrist injury sap his power? Myers isn’t a contact hitter — he has struck out at least 20 percent of the time in every season of his career — so he needs to hit for big power to live up to his top prospect billing.

2015

The theory of the sophomore slump has mostly been disproven, but Myers tried his best to undo all of that research in 2014. His season was cut short by an injury after he collided with Desmond Jennings in the outfield, but he was not exactly setting the world on fire before the injury. He spent most of the season chasing pitches up and chasing ones away while trying to hit everything 500 feet. Most of his plate appearances resembled those of someone who had done little homework and was just relying on natural talent. He admitted later in the season that perhaps he took too much for granted after his successful minor league career and AL Rookie of the Year campaign in 2013. Hopefully a re-dedication to his career will get him back to the guy we saw in 2013 because those skills are all there. He will look to get back on track in Year 3 with San Diego, after the Rays traded him to the Padres as part of a blockbuster deal in December.

2014

After starting the year with Triple-A Durham, Myers made his much-anticipated debut in the middle of June and the slugging began. An elite prospect acquired in the offseason trade of James Shields to the Royals, he helped lead the Tampa Bay offense to the postseason en route to the AL Rookie of the Year Award. After his call to the majors, the Rays put together a 52-36 record in games in which he appeared. In those 88 games, he hit .293/.354/.478 with 13 homers, 23 doubles and 53 RBI. He hit all over the batting order from second through sixth with the Rays shuffling lineups and matchups. He still has a slight tendency to strike out, with 93 on the year with the Rays, but his aggressiveness swinging at the first pitch shows as a useful tool, as eight of his 13 long balls came on first-pitch swings. Myers and teammate Evan Longoria will be fixtures in the middle of the order in Tampa Bay for a long time and he will quickly be establishing his spot as one of the better power-hitting corner outfielders in all of baseball.

2013

With a number of 2012 Minor League Player of the Year trophies on his mantle, Myers enters this season with enormous expectations. The 22-year-old left-handed slugger opened the year at Double-A Northwest Arkansas, but found himself quickly promoted after opening the year with a .351/.421/.739 line, 11 doubles, 13 home runs and an eye-popping .388 ISO over 135 at-bats. His move to Triple-A produced similar results as he went on to hit .304 with another 24 home runs all while maintaining a walk rate above 10 percent. His aggressiveness at the plate still causes him to strikeout a little too often (140 times in 134 games), but it is also that type of drive that allows him to hit with such power. Traded to Tampa Bay in a blockbuster deal in December, it's only a matter of time before he's given a chance to lock down a place in the heart of the Rays' batting order as the team's everyday right fielder.

2012

At 21, Myers is among the top prospects in not only the Royals system, but in the entire American League. At Double-A Northwest Arkansas he hit .254/.353/.393 with eight home runs and nine stolen bases. While that might not sound like much, it should be noted that Myers was making a defensive switch from catcher to outfielder and dealing with an infection in his knee early in the season. His lack of power is a bit of a concern, but he's still young with time to grow into his body. Owners would be wise to track his progress in the minors as a promotion may come as soon as late 2012.

2011

Myers has had no problem adjusting to minor league pitching out of high school and looks to be an excellent hitting prospect. He just needs to progress in his defensive game behind the plate. If he's able to put that part of his game on par with his bat, he could be looking at a 2012 callup. With Myers, the bat is good enough that the Royals will move him out from behind the plate if needed. Invest now if he's still available in your keeper league.
