Wil Myers congratulates the Royals


Classy gesture from Rays outfielder Wil Myers, who was once a premier Royals prospect …

Kansas City got James Shields and Wade Davis in that December 2012 seven-player blockbuster trade, and both of those pitchers have played massive roles in the Royals’ improbable run to the World Series. Shields has already started three games this postseason — with so-so results but all victories — and Davis is a big part of KC’s dominant relief corps. Myers, meanwhile, has batted just .258/.324/.400 in 734 plate appearances since joining Tampa Bay. He missed half of the 2014 season with a stress fracture in his right wrist.
