It’s something that we’ve been deliberating for a while, and his recent hot streak certainly accelerated the conversations,” said Rays executive vice president of baseball operations Andrew Friedman. “As we’ve talked about since Spring Training, when we felt like he was ready, it would be important to auger out a spot for him. Over the last week, we spent a lot more time thinking about it, talking about it, and we felt like injecting one more bat against right-handed pitching that we felt like had a chance to do some damage was something that we wanted to do. We think he’ll fit right in with our group and be one of nine in our offensive unit to score runs. Rays GM Andrew Friedman on Wil Myers.
