1991 Donruss - Wil Myers

Wil Myers
Tribute to 1991 Donruss
by Goose Joak

Myers is among the most exciting of the Royals prospects.  He has succeeded at a very young age.  And, notably, where other top Royals prospects hit a road bump.  Check out how he compared to Moustakas and Hosmer in A ball.

PLAYER - TEAM - AGE - OPS
WMYERS - BURL - 19 - .908
MOUSTA - BURL - 19 - .805
HOSMER - BURL - 19 - .734

Since that time, Hosmer and Moustakas have torn the cover off the ball.  I think it speaks to the kind of prospect that Myers is.

PLAYER - TEAM - AGE - OPS
MOUSTA - 2A3A - 21 - .999
HOSMER - A/2A - 20 - .977
MOUSTA - WILM - 20 - .718

In the new year, Myers will probably start the year in AA.  A strong performance -- and possibly the acquisition or development of another catching prospect -- would likely move him into the outfield full time.  At this point there is no reason to rush him, so it will be interesting to see if/when he becomes a Storm Chaser.
