The Wil Myers trade is “nearing the finish line”


Jerry Crasnick reports that the Wil Myers-to-San Diego trade discussed last night is “nearing the finish line.”

He also says that it appears as though it will be a straight two-team trade between the Rays and the Padres. To the extent a third team comes into play, it may be that the Rays may flip one of the pieces it gets from San Diego. Last night it was rumored that the Mariners could be involved. This morning someone mentioned the Washington Nationals.

Either way, Myers is an intriguing pieces. A top prospect and then a Rookie of the Year in 2013, Myers’ 2014 was a mess, at least in part due to injury. It’ll be really interesting to see which direction his career goes from here.
