ST. PETERSBURG, Fla. — Heralded prospect Wil Myers is among seven minor leaguers the Tampa Bay Rays have invited to major league spring training this month.

The 22-year-old was one of the key acquisitions in an off-season trade that sent pitchers James Shields and Wade Davis to the Kansas City Royals. Myers hit a combined .314 with 37 homers and 109 RBI in 134 games with Double-A Northwest Arkansas and Triple-A Omaha last season.

The Rays also invited first baseman-outfielder Leslie Anderson, infielder Cole Figueroa, right-handed pitchers Matt Nevarez and Jim Paduch and left-handed relievers Jim Patterson and Neil Schenk to big league camp. Pitchers and catchers report on Feb. 12.
