Padres place Wil Myers on 15-day DL with left wrist injury
|by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com|
|(5/19/15) The Padres placed outfielder/first baseman Wil Myers on the 15-day disabled list -- retroactive to May 11 -- with left wrist tendinitis, per the team's official website. Myers has been sidelined since May 10 with the injury. He hit .291/.340/.493 with five home runs, 19 RBI and three stolen bases in 134 at-bats at the time of the injury.
"He needs rest. The tendon needs rest," manager Bud Black said of Myers, per The Mighty 1090 AM radio in San Diego. "There's no timetable for his return."
Black also revealed that Myers suffered the same type of injury last year while with the Rays. The 24-year-old missed 70 games with a similar issue.
In a corresponding move, San Diego recalled right-hander Cory Mazzoni from Triple-A El Paso. Mazzoni will be making his second big-league stint with the Padres this season. He allowed six earned runs in two inning of relief earlier this season.

|by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com|
|(5/19/15) Padres outfielder/first baseman Wil Myers remained out of the starting lineup Tuesday night against the Cubs, per the team's official website.
Myers, who is dealing with tendinitis in his wrist, has not been in the starting lineup since May 10 and could in danger of landing on the disabled list. He is hitting .291/.340/.493 with five home runs, 19 RBI and three stolen bases in 134 at-bats before the injury.
Padres' Wil Myers (wrist) hits in batting cage Sunday
|by R.J. White | CBSSports.com|
|(5/17/15) Padres outfielder/first baseman Wil Myers took some swings in the batting cage Sunday, though he wasn't able to swing at 100 percent, U-T San Diego reports.
The hope is that Myers, who is dealing with tendinitis in his wrist, will be able to return to action Tuesday. Out since May 10, the center fielder had been filling in at first base with Yonder Alonso sidelined. Myers has hit .291/.340/.493 with five home runs, 19 RBI and three stolen bases in 134 at-bats.
Padres' Wil Myers takes grounders on Saturday
|by Brandon Wise | CBSSports.com|
|(5/16/15) Padres center fielder/first baseman Wil Myers was able to take ground balls and catch throws at first base on Saturday, according to U-T San Diego.
Myers, who is dealing with tendinitis in his wrist, is yet to take batting practice, which manager Bud Black believes is the true test.
"The true test is taking swings, and moreso on the follow through than anything," Black said.
He is cautiously optimistic Myers will return on Tuesday against the Cubs. Myers is hitting .291 with five home runs and 19 RBI in 134 at-bats this season.
Padres OF Wil Myers could return to lineup Tuesday
|by Sean d'Oliveira | CBSSports.com|
|(5/15/15) Padres manager Bud Black said Friday the team is hoping to have center fielder Wil Myers back in the lineup for Tuesday's game against the Cubs, reports the San Diego Union-Tribune.
Myers is missing his fourth-straight game Friday because of tendinitis in his left wrist.
|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.
