Bob Dutton of the Royals Report believes that the Royals will NOT part with Myers for Dickey. This does not close the door on acquiring Wil Myers through another trade offer, however.

According to Adam Rubin of ESPN New York, multiple sources say the club is still pursuing Kansas City Royals outfield prospect Wil Myers.

The 21-year-old outfielder hit .314/.387/.600 with 37 homers, 109 RBI and 98 runs in 134 minor-league games last season (35 in Double-A, 99 in Triple-A).

The Royals have been very tepid on R.A. Dickey and have been notably rumored in swapping Myers for either Red Sox lefty Jon Lester or Rays right-hander James Shields.

It might take Jon Niese to get into the conversation for Myers or Zack Wheeler.
