Padres CF Wil Myers off to promising start in rehab
|by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com|
|(6/27/15) It's so far, so good in regard to the rehab of Padres outfielder Wil Myers, who underwent left wrist surgery on June 18.
Myers is hoping he can resume baseball activities in as quickly as 4-6 weeks after having his stitches and soft cast removed.
"[The doctor] said it looked good, there is no bruising or discoloration," Myers told MLB.com. "So that is a good sign. He was very optimistic."

Padres OF Wil Myers to have wrist surgery on Thursday
|by Jason Lempert | Staff Writer|
|(6/17/15) The Padres have announced that Wil Myers will undergo surgery on his left wrist on Thursday. He is likely to miss at least eight weeks, according to FoxSports.com.
Myers has been sidelined for much of the season with the wrist injury, and will now be for the majority of the summer. Will Venable and Melvin Upton are likely to get the majority of the playing time in center field with Myers out for the foreseeable future.
"It's a big blow, and that's obvious," new manager Pat Murphy said, per the San Diego Union-Tribune. "It's been a big blow. That caliber of player leaves the puzzle without a piece, and everybody's got to step up a little bit."
Padres' Wil Myers heads to DL with lingering wrist injury
|by Jason Butt | CBSSports.com|
|(6/15/15) The Padres announced on Monday that Wil Myers has been moved to the 15-day disabled list due to his lingering wrist injury.
Myers has been dealing with left wrist tendinitis that has been bothersome since his recent return. Myers first went on the disabled list with this injury on May 10. He was able to play in three consecutive games from Thursday through Saturday before getting Sunday off.
According to the San Diego Union-Tribune, Myers could receive a second opinion on his wrist. Myers felt more pain when taking swings on Sunday.
The move will be retroactive to June 14.
Myers has a slash line of .277/.327/.459 this season.
With Myers going to the disabled list, the Padres have recalled right-handed pitcher Cory Mazzoni from Triple-A El Paso. This will be Mazzoni's third major-league stint this year.
Padres' Wil Myers gets day off, Yangervis Solarte in lineup
|by Jason Butt | CBSSports.com|
|(6/14/15) The Padres have given Wil Myers the day off for Sunday's series-finale against the Dodgers.
Myers came off of the disabled list on Thursday after recovering from a wrist injury and played the past three games.
Yangervis Solarte will play Sunday and he's slated to hit second. Solarte will man third base in the infield.
|2014 summary: Wil Myers' 2014 season got off to a bad start, as he batted .227 with five home runs through his first 53 games, and things just got worse from there. A stress fracture in his wrist led to a disabled list stint that spanned nearly half the season, and when Myers returned, he struggled even more at the plate. Over his final 34 games, Myers batted .213 with five extra-base hits (including one home run). Having spent his first two major league seasons with the Rays, Myers will now move on to the Padres, to whom he was traded in December.|
Playing time status: Myers will attempt to give Fantasy owners a full season's worth of at-bats for the first time in his career, as he is expected to hold down an everyday role in the Padres' outfield.
2015 outlook: If we knew Myers could live up to his rookie year level of performance, he would be an easy pick to make in the middle rounds of a standard mixed league draft. After an awful sophomore season, it's less clear whether Myers can bounce back to that level and sustain it over a full season. That uncertainty makes him a better bet to pursue in the later rounds.
