Wil Myers is off the disabled list after missing nearly three months with a fractured right wrist and the reigning Rookie of the Year winner is back in the Rays’ lineup.

Myers was struggling before colliding with Desmond Jennings in the outfield on May 30, hitting .227 with five homers and a .666 OPS that was a 165-point drop from last season.

Myers went 6-for-24 (.250) with two homers and a .961 OPS in seven games on a minor-league rehab assignment at Triple-A to convince the Rays he’s ready to return.

    Good. The Rays were missing a ton of strikeouts from the middle of their lineup.

      So right. Myers and Bryce Harper are so overrated.

    Glad he’s back, now let’s hope he stays healthy.
