I'm a little surprised that the Royals did not bring up The Minor League Player Of The year, Wil Myers (according to USAToday Sports Weekly and Baseball America). Myers blasted 37 home runs this year in a season between AA and AAA and led the Royals AAA affiliate to the final round of the Pacific Coast League championship. Then again, the Cincinnati Reds also didn't bring up Billy Hamilton, who merely rewrote the record books with 155 stolen bases to break the previous minor leagues stolen bases record by a good margin. Both moves would have been good publicity moves and created some buzz but the front offices in each case didn't want to rush their star prospects to the big leagues.
Myers will turn 22 in December and ought to have a legitimate shot at winning a roster spot out of 2013 Spring Training.
