Tampa Bay Rays OF Wil Myers (wrist) will move around the outfield when he returns. OF Kevin Kiermaier's starting spot is set, but the two could platoon as well. Myers could return Tuesday, Aug. 19, if he feels he is ready. He could also be pushed back to Friday, Aug. 22, if he needs more at-bats.
Fantasy Tip: Myers has been a vast disappointment this year, but his power bat could emerge in the final month. Activate him when he returns for one of your final OF spots.
