Numbers and details coming in from CBS Sports.com:

If Wil Myers(Tampa Bay Rays/Wesleyan Christian Academy-High Point) plays every game the rest of the season, he will have appeared in 90 games. So it would be a record for the American League (Ryan Howard took the NL ROY with just 88 games played in 2005). Major League Baseball record for the American League, for fewest games played to win Rookie of the Year honors….Wil Myers, from High Point, these numbers are for you……

Myers is hitting .326/.379/.525 with nine doubles, nine homers, 37 RBI, 29 runs and five stolen bases in his 47 games played. If he keeps up a pace like this, he’ll dwarf the competition.

And if that happens, Myers will make history, becoming the position player with the fewest games played in a season to ever win the American League Rookie of the Year.
