MLB Prospects Update: Hottest, Coldest Hitters at Every Minor League Level
Kim Klement-USA TODAY Sports
Tampa Bay Rays: It's time to call up Wil Myers.

Headed into Wednesday’s game against the Yankees, the Tampa Bay Rays offense is collectively batting .229 through 20 games, which is the fifth-worst team average in the major leagues.

While Wil Myers shouldn’t be regarded as a “solution” to the team’s offensive woes, it’s time for the Rays to promote their top prospect to the major leagues. The 22-year-old outfielder has found his groove at Triple-A Durham and is batting .328/.430/.453 with 12 RBI through 17 games.

Besides Desmond Jennings and Ben Zobrist, the Rays have received minimal production from their trio of third outfielders. Given the overwhelming early-season struggles of Matt Joyce (.563 OPS), Sam Fuld (.331 OPS) and Shelly Duncan (.691 OPS), Myers would seemingly serve as an immediate upgrade over all three players.

However, Myers isn’t the only young hitter putting up big numbers in the minors.

Here’s a look at this week’s hottest and coldest hitters and every minor league level.
