Rays Activate Myers from DL

Ron Vesely/MLB Photos via Getty Images(ST. PETERSBURG, Fla.) -- Outfielder Wil Myers was activated from the 60-day disabled list by the Tampa Bay Rays Wednesday.

Myers missed the last 70 games after he broke his right wrist during a collision in the outfield with teammate Desmond Jennings.

"My wrist feels great, either one of them," Myers said to the team's website. "My legs feel great. My confidence is back, which I think is the most important thing. Going forward for me, that's what I really have to rely on."

The 23-year-old Myers played seven games for Triple-A Durham before being recalled. During that time, he hit .250 with two home runs, six RBIs, three stolen bases and a .419 on-base percentage.

To make room for Myers, the Rays optioned infielder Vince Belnome to Durham.
