Wil Myers is coming up! Or is he?

J. Meric

The Rays are promoting Wil Myers you say? You might want to double check your source.

Prospect enthusiasts (myself included) rejoiced after seeing this tweet from ESPN's Jim Bowden:

Finally, the reigning Baseball America Player of the Year would be in the Major Leagues and deservedly so after hitting .417 with 7 home runs since May 25. That performance brings his season long Triple-A number to .279/.354/.486 with 10 home runs, 49 RBIs and 7 steals in 222 at bats. Including last year he has blasted 34 home runs in 610 at bats in Triple-A. With all of that in mind, it seems safe to say he's done quite enough to earn a callup and he'd be worth a pickup in all formats, just like Ray stated in this morning's Roto Roundup.

Unfortunately, Bowden seems to be alone is his reporting, as TB Times' reporter Marc Topkin had this response on twitter:

I must say, golly, that's disappointing. But as I said on tonight's podcast (that you'll get to hear in the morning), Topkin is a much more reliable source when it comes to all things Rays because he covers the organization on a daily basis. In fact, Bowden has since deleted the tweet from his timeline. So although teams are likely past the super-2 cutoff, it looks as if Myers and fantasy owners will have to continue waiting on a promotion that doesn't look any more imminent than it did yesterday.
