Rays | Plan on being cautious with Wil Myers

The Tampa Bay Rays seem to want to be extremely cautious with OF Wil Myers' development, especially since this spring is the first time they have really laid eyes on him themselves. "We've obviously read a lot of scouting reports, watched a lot of video, talked to a lot of guys who have seen him play," vice president of baseball operations Andrew Friedman said. "And that's great. That's obviously a very important part of the process of acquiring players. But I think you end up knowing more about a guy after you've been around him for a week or two than you do from watching a guy play for three games. So we're anxious to learn all of the different things about him and how he goes about his work, etc., that you can't possibly know without being around him." The Rays are devoting plenty of time to developing his progress as an outfielder. The team won't rule out the possibility of him making an impact this year, but they aren't making any bets on it.
