Fantasy Impact: Myers was consistently one of the top prospects throughout the minors, and burst on the scene in 2013, winning the Rookie of the Year. In 2014, he absolutely cratered, dropping over .200 points in OPS. There are rumors of Myers displaying a bad work ethic, and given that Myers has been traded twice in just over two years for an swiftly decreasing haul, it is likely that there is something going on behind the scenes with him. His upside is astronomical, so he's well worth a flier, but given his 2014 campaign, temper your expectations.

The Tampa Bay Rays were involved in a three team deal today, pending physicals, trading OF Wil Myers, C Ryan Hanigan, and minor leaguers to the Padres. Key players in return include OF Steven Souza from the Nationals, C Rene Rivera and RHP Burch Smith from the Padres. (Source: ESPN)

Fantasy Impact: OF Steve Souza, the 2014 AAA IL MVP, should have the most fantasy impact and will replace Myers in RF. He is considered a toolsy player, with the potential of a 15-20 HR and 20 SB season if he stays healthy. C Rene Rivera would only have value in deep 2 catcher leagues. P Burch Smith will likely spend most the season in the AAA Durham rotation.
