Wil Myers day to day with wrist injury

New, comments

Wil Myers was scratched from the lineup last night after batting practice when he determined that wrist soreness wouldn't allow him to follow through with his swing.  He initially jammed the same wrist at the beginning of last year with the Rays.  He injured it again on Sunday when sliding into second base in a game against the Diamondbacks.

He'd hoped that with Monday's day off that the rest would allow him to play again.  That hope was short lived after he took some swings in the cages.

"I hoped [with] the off-day [Monday] it would kind of go away," Myers said. "But I felt it today in the cage and during BP. I took BP and felt that was kind of it."

Dennis Lin reported during the game that the way Myers was casually sitting in the dugout might suggest that the injury was not be so serious.

"I can move it around," Myers said of his wrist. "It's just one of those things. On the follow-through of the swing, that's when I felt it."

There is no imminent trip to the disabled list planned but as Lin notes, the last time he jammed this wrist it didn't fully recover until late December.  Not a good sign.
