07:46 AM ET 06.17 | The Tampa Bay Rays announced on Tuesday that they will be promoting their No. 1 prospect Wil Myers to the Majors, and the long-awaited debut of one of the game's future stars has arrived. Myers was acquired from Kansas City in the offseason in a deal for James Shields, and since the day of that move, Tampa Bay Rays fans have clamored for his services with the Major League club. Myers has slugged over .500 in each of his past two minor league seasons, and in 2013, his .286/.354/.514 slash line with 14 home runs in just 288 plate appearances was good enough for promotion. Myers is a former catcher, but he profiles as a high-end corner outfielder, and there were rumors of Tampa Bay's reluctance to call him up based on defensive limitations.
