As Rays pitchers and catchers began preparing for their second day of workouts at the team's Spring Training Complex in Port Charlotte, more position players began trickling in to camp to start working out.

Sunday saw one of the big names arrive at Charlotte Sports Park, as outfielder and reigning American League Rookie of the Year Wil Myers reported to camp.  He said his travels from snowy North Carolina to Florida had to be changed drastically.

"I was trying to fly out of Charlotte on Friday.  My flight ended up getting cancelled, and I ended up renting a car to drive down," Myers explained.  "I didn't make my flight because the line was so long, and they ended up cancelling it anyway.  And they said 'There's too many people on standby to get out.'  So I was like 'All right, well I'm just going to drive down.'

"So I drove down in a Kia."

Myers went on to say that he had shipped most of his belongings as well as his car the week before, so he had just a few things with him for the trip, which took ten hours.

Other position players reporting to camp today were outfielder Matt Joyce, and utilityman Sean Rodriguez.
