Waiting for Wil Myers in the Durham Bulls dugout during the middle of the second inning Sunday was Bulls manager Charlie Montoyo, who delivered this message to the young prospect: “You're out of the game. You may or may not be going to the big leagues.”


May or may not?


The kid has been knocking on the door since last season and he's told it's 50-50 he could be joining the Rays.


Turns out, as everyone knows by now, Myers did receive the big news Sunday, Father's Day, while his parents, Pam and Eric, were among his family and friends in the stands.


Myers realized his dream had come true about two minutes later when Bulls trainer Mike Sandoval handed him his travel itinerary for Boston.


He begins his promising big-league career this afternoon when the Rays play the first of two games of a day-night doubleheader against the first-place Red Sox.


“It was really cool. This is something I've worked for all my life, and it's finally coming true,” Myers said Monday during a conference call.


He said he was standing at a taxi stand at Logan International Airport. His flight was delayed en route to Boston by thunderstorms that pounded the city.


“It was pretty bumpy,” he said.


Rays fans everywhere rejoiced at the news that the 2012 minor-league player of the year with a bat worthy of jump-starting a suddenly sluggish offense has finally arrived.


“I saw some things on Twitter which I thought was awesome to be able to know the fans are behind you,” Myers said.
