Wil Myers, Lorenzo Cain Heat Up Winter Leagues


After a disappointing year in Double A where he missed time due to injuries, Wil Myers is making up for lost time in the Arizona Fall League.

Myers leads all Royals hitters taking place in offseason leagues with a 1.214 OPS.  He also leads all hitters in base hits, walks, runs scored, RBI and extra base hits. He’s taking advantage of the opportunity to get in more time in the outfield as well, logging an outfield assist at the plate. It’s an encouraging sign after he hit .254/.351/.393 in Northwest Arkansas as a 20-year-old.

Outfielder Lorenzo Cain has also put up good numbers, with seven hits in his first 19 at bats in the Venezuelan League.

Other Royals in offseason leagues:

Arizona Fall League (October 4 – November 5)

Dominican Winter League (10/14 – 12/21)

Venezuelan Winter League (10/12 – 12/30)

Mexican League (10/11 – 12/30)

Adcock has been impressive with seven strikeouts in three innings and has not walked a batter yet. Santiago has also done well, with six strikeouts in five innings.
