Pictured above is what befell Rays outfielders Wil Myers and Desmond Jennings on Friday night against the Red Sox. Now, the Rays have placed Myers on the 15-day disabled list with a sprained right wrist. To take Myers's spot on the active roster, the Rays have recalled 1B/OF Jerry Sands from Triple-A.

This season, the 23-year-old Myers is batting a disappointing .227/.313/.354 (89 OPS+) with five home runs in 53 games. Last year, Myers was voted AL Rookie of the Year.

The Rays enter play Sunday having lost five in a row and in last place. They presently trail the first-place Blue Jays by 9 1/2 games in the AL East.
