2013 AL Rookie of the Year Wil Myers in town on rehab assignment

Wil Myers is quick to credit Durham Bulls hitting coach Dave Myers for helping him find the batting stroke that led to him being last year’s American League Rookie of the Year.

On Thursday, with Wil Myers back at Durham Bulls Athletic Park for an injury rehabilitation stint with the Bulls, Dave Myers was glad to say his pupil is well on his way to helping the Tampa Bay Rays again.

“I was pleasantly surprised working with him in the cage,” said Dave Myers, who is not related to Wil Myers. “He seems to be pretty strong. He doesn’t seem to be doing anything different as far as bat speed. I was pretty impressed that he would come here that close to being ready to go.”

Wil Myers returned to Durham on Thursday as he recovers from a broken wrist he suffered on May 31. He’s been on Tampa Bay’s disabled list ever since, including the first six weeks when his wrist was immobilized in a cast.

The plan is for Wil Myers to go through batting and fielding work with the Bulls on Thursday and Friday at the DBAP. The first day he could be activated would be for Saturday’s 7:05 p.m. game with Buffalo.
