Padres' Wil Myers: Not in Thursday's lineup

Myers (knee) is out of the lineup for Thursday's game at Milwaukee, Kevin Acee of The San Diego Union-Tribune reports. The 31-year-old received a gel injection for his inflamed right knee after Tuesday's loss to the Cardinals, and he won't be in the lineup Thursday as originally expected. Despite that initial optimism, it's not a major surprise Meyers will be forced to miss at least one game while recovering from the injection. Nomar Mazara had his contract selected from Triple-A El Paso and will make his debut for the Padres in right field.

Padres' Wil Myers: Resting Wednesday

Myers is out of the lineup for Wednesday's game against the Cardinals. After missing a pair of games due to right knee inflammation, Myers returned to the lineup for Tuesday's 3-2 loss and went 0-for-4 with a strikeout. The Padres haven't indicated that Myers suffered any setbacks with his knee, so he's likely just getting some extra maintenance as San Diego wraps up its series in St. Louis with a day game after a night game.

Myers (knee) will sit Monday against the Cardinals. Myers will be on the bench for the second straight game while he deals with right knee inflammation. Jose Azocar gets the start in right field for the second straight game. Myers was reportedly available off the bench Sunday against the Pirates, so it's likely he's available in a similar capacity Monday.

Padres' Wil Myers: Day-to-day with knee injury

Myers is considered day-to-day with right knee inflammation ahead of Monday's series opener against the Cardinals, AJ Cassavell of MLB.com reports. Myers was out of the lineup Sunday against the Pirates after drawing 16 consecutive starts, and he didn't appear off the bench during the team's win over Pittsburgh. Manager Bob Melvin revealed after the game that Myers is dealing with a knee issue, but the 31-year-old would have been available off the bench if needed. If Myers misses additional time, Jose Azocar should see increased playing time in right field.

I am once again asking for the Mariners to trade for Wil Myers

Alright, here’s the situation. This trade isn’t about Wil Myers. At least, not primarily, or perhaps secondarily. Tertiarily seems fair. But we’ll start with his why first all the same. The San Diego Padres longtime OF/1B née 3B/CF has lived at least four lives in his big...

Padres' Wil Myers: Collects three RBI

Myers went 2-for-5 with three RBI and a run scored during Sunday's 7-3 win over Atlanta in extra innings. The 31-year-old didn't have any extra-base hits Sunday, but he went 2-for-2 with runners in scoring position to help power San Diego's offense. Myers had a .527 OPS prior to landing on the injured list in late April with a bruised right thumb, but he's 6-for-21 with a home run, a walk, six RBI and four runs in five games since returning from the injury.

Padres' Wil Myers: Finally goes yard

Myers went 3-for-4 with a home run, two runs scored and two RBI in Friday's 11-6 win over Atlanta. His sixth-inning solo shot off Max Fried was Myers' first homer of the year in his 18th game, as a thumb injury has cost him significant time so far. His .235/.260/.324 slash line, six runs and 10 RBI are far from impressive, but if Myers is finally feeling 100 percent healthy, his numbers should begin to rise.

Padres' Wil Myers: Hitting off tee

Myers (thumb) is expected to begin hitting off a tee Thursday, Jeff Sanders of The San Diego Union-Tribune reports. Myers has experienced a significant decrease in the swelling in his right thumb since landing on the shelf a week ago, and he could return as soon as the upcoming series against the Cubs, which begins Monday. However, he'll need to see how his body responds to the increase in activity, and it's also possible he'll require a brief rehab stint.
