What position should Wil Myers play?




With the Royals linked to Yasmani Grandal in the upcoming MLB draft...  Should the Royals move Myers to a different position?

I happen to think Wil Myers should move to second base, much the same way Brett Lawrie was handled by Milwaukee.  More and more second baseman are expected to provide offensive power in the big leagues these days.  Chase Utley, Ben Zobrist, Robinson Cano, Kelly Johnson and Brandon Phillips are all 6'0 200 lbs. plus and provide a lot of offense for their respective clubs.  Gordon Beckham was recently moved to 2B by the White Sox and Ian Stewart has played some 2B for the Rockies recently.

The Royals farm system needs are: C, MI, CF.  Moving Myers to second base would give the Royals a middle infield prospect and a possible future middle infield of Mike Aviles and Wil Myers.  This would allow Gordon and Hosmer to get an opportunity in the OF as well as some of the OF prospects (Lough, Parraz, Maier, Robinson) to get a look in CF.  What do you think?
