Well... well, this isn't good. Wil Myers, who was initially penciled back in the Padres' starting lineup after leaving last night's 68-inning game with a crampy calf, was scratched right before the first pitch of today's series finale against the Brewers. Apparently he is now dealing with another ailment: tightness in his left forearm. One can only hope that his rest is solely for the sake of rest.
Brett Wallace, who was slated to start a third base, will slide across the diamond to start in Myers' place. Adam Rosales will take Wallace's place at third base instead of starting at second base as he was set to do, and Jose Pirela will get the start at second base.
Derek Norris will move up from sixth in the lineup to take the second spot vacated by Myers, with shortstop Alexei Ramirez moving up one spot from seventh; Pirela will bat seventh, with Wallace and Rosales holding steady at cleanup and eighth, respectively.
