The Tampa Bay Rays recalled top prospect Wil Myers on Sunday night. He will join the Rays on Tuesday for their doubleheader against the Boston Red Sox. Myers hit .314 with 37 home runs in the minors last year with Kansas City and many thought the Rays should have had Myers start the year in Tampa Bay. But, they sent him back to Triple-A for more seasoning and more importantly for the Rays, they were simply looking to save money for the future. By delaying Myers service time, the Rays can push back his arbitration eligibility by a season. Myers should play everyday and if he is still avaliable, go grab him now.
The Colorado Rockies received devastating news on Thursday when All-Star shortstop Troy Tulowitzki went down with a broken rib. Tulowitzki has been dealing with the injury for the past few weeks and he aggravated it again when he was diving for a ball in Thursday's loss to the Nationals. Tulo will most likely be out 4-to-6 weeks. It is good news that the injury is not season-ending, but the frustration for Tulowitzki owners. Its scary to think the type of offensive production he would provide IF he could ever stay healthy for a full season.
The Rockies received the news on Tulowitzki the same day that both Dexter Fowler and Carlos Gonzalez both suffered injuries. Gonzalez was standing in the on-deck circle and was hit on his left foot by a foul ball hit by Jordan Pacheco. Gonzalez said he is sore and should be back soon. Fowler, has a bruised right finger and he too feels that he won't be out of the Rockies lineup very long.
