Myers is showing all the signs of becoming a star at the major league level. He is tearing through AA this year with 9 Homeruns and an OPS of 1.081. He just transitioned to Right Field from catcher and is still very young. he is coming off a injury riddled 2011 but has bounced back this year. He has been rated as high as the #10 prospect in the minors by Baseball America and I wouldn't be surprised if hes in the top 5 by the end of the year. He may earn a September call up this year and could be on the MLB team by 2013.
He has the potential to become a perennial all star in Kansas City and would make a nice addition to a lineup including Hosmer, Gordon, Moustakas and Butler.
HOWEVER what is the point of having an elite offense if your starters can't make it out of the third inning??
The answer is NONE. Ask the Rangers of the early 2000's
The future for our rotation looks grimm to say the least. Duffy has great stuff and looks to be coming into his own. But after him we have a pair of #5 starters in Paulino and Chen. And then there is Hochevar and Sanchez who don't belong on a major league roster.
This is why we need to trade Myers for pitching. there is no doubt in my mind that we could get a front line starter in return for Myers he is just that talented.
