PHOENIX -- The Royals have an impressive collection of talent at the minor league level, and one of the jewels of the system is 20-year-old Wil Myers, who is hitting .271/.359/.385 with three home runs at Double-A Northwest Arkansas. This follows his 14-homer season last year when he drove in 83 while hitting .315 at both Class A levels.
In order to get him to Kansas City more quickly, the Royals moved Myers from catcher -- a spot he didn't play until he turned pro -- to the outfield.
Myers started Sunday's Futures Game and went 0 for 3 but drove in a run during the U.S. team's 6-4 victory. Before the game, he talked about his move to the outfield, his stirrups and not wearing batting gloves:For more baseball news, rumors and analysis, follow @cbssportsmlb on Twitter or subscribe to the RSS feed.
