PADRES AND RAYS DISCUSS WILL MYERS TRADE

The Tampa Rays and SD Padres  have discussed a trade involving outfielder Wil Myers.

The Rays hare interested in  pitchers R J Alvarez, Burch Smith  and Matt Wisler.   Some combination of those hurlers might make for a good return for Myers, the 2013 American League Rookie of the Year. Myers finished with a .293 BA  in his debut campaign but went through a sophomore slump in 2014, hitting just .222  in 361 plate appearances. He won’t become a free agent until after the 2019 season.

All three hurlers Tampa Bay reportedly expressed interest in rank among the Padres’ top 20 prospects.   Wisler, the No. 2 prospect in the organization, posted a 4.42 ERA in 28 starts between Double-A and Triple-A in 2014.
