Myers was young for the 2016 high school class, so he’ll be just 20-years-old until August of next season. Originally an Orioles’ sixth-rounder, Tampa Bay traded Tim Beckham for Myers straight up in July of 2017. Myers is coming off a solid full-season Class A debut, having pitched to a respectable 3.71 ERA over 23 appearances in the Midwest League. His fastball works 90-to-94 mph range, backed up by a solid-average curve and workable change. The risk with young pitching prospects needs to be mentioned, though Tampa Bay has down well in this demographic recently. Myers has the makings of a back-rotation starter if it all comes together.
