The Tampa Bay Rays have activated outfielder Wil Myers from the 60-day disabled list after he missed 70 games with a broken right wrist.

The Rays made the announcement before Wednesday night's game against Detroit.

The 2013 American League Rookie of the Year played seven games on a rehab assignment with Triple-A Durham.

Tampa Bay also optioned infielder Vince Belnome to Durham and transferred outfielder Jerry Sands (left wrist surgery) from the 15- to the 60-day disabled list.
