Re: Wil Myers to the Rays
They control the team option, another $12MM year, so 3 years, $33MM.
One aspect of the trade I didn't really notice is the contract the Rays had Davis signed to. That could become a real sticking point for this trade. If he flops at his return to a starting role that could become a very bad deal for KC. Basically, they are banking on WD to turn the corner and become a solid 3/4 starter and for Shields to anchor/mentor the staff into legitimacy. It's a huge risk, but one I admire them for making...at the very least, they know what they'll get out of Shields. You can't really say that about any other piece in the deal.
