Wil Myers' career-best season for home runs was his first year in pro ball, when he hit 14 between low Class A Burlington and high Class A Wilmington in 2009. It looks like he's going to need maybe six or seven weeks of the 2012 season to break that mark.
Myers went deep twice today for Double-A Northwest Arkansas, giving him 13 home runs on the year to tie him for second in the minors. Myers, 21, has always shown a keen eye at the plate but a knee injury stalled him last year and hampered him when he did play. Myers did strike out twice to give him 41 whiffs in 34 games, but it's hard to take issue when he's hitting .346/.419/.746.
For the second straight game, Myers even spent the first two innings at third base before moving to center field for the rest of the game. Most likely is that Myers won't end up at either position and will find his way back to right field, where he has the offensive ability to become an all-star.
