Padres' Wil Myers: Could be out until June

Myers (oblique) may not be reinstated from the disabled list until sometime in June, according to's AJ Cassavell.

Myers was placed on the 10-day disabled list with a low-grade oblique strain April 29, but the Padres didn't offer a firm timetable due to the nature of the injury. Cassavell's estimation of a June return is the closest thing we've received to a potential return date, which would keep the outfielder out for at least a couple more weeks. The extra time will allow San Diego to figure out which of their talented young outfielders will play alongside Myers in center and left field, affording Franmil Reyes an opportunity to see a lot of playing time at least in the short term.
