Myers (foot) was activated from the disabled list and is batting second and playing third base Monday against the Angels. Myers has played just one inning as a third baseman in his major-league career, though he did play there on a rehab assignment. It's unclear how often he'll be playing there this season, though the frequency will likely depend in part on how comfortable he looks defensively.
Myers (foot) will play third base on a one-game minor-league rehab assignment in preparation to play the position with the Padres, Kevin Acee of The San Diego Union-Tribune reports. Myers is expected to start at third base for the Padres when he comes off the disabled list Monday, although manager Andy Green has avoided explicitly saying as much. The 27-year-old may not become the team's everyday starter at third base, but the Padres are clearly attempting to figure out the versatility of some of their core players, including Myers, who has already played first base in addition to all three outfield spots this season.
Myers (foot) remains on track to return from the 10-day disabled list when first eligible Monday, Kevin Acee of The San Diego Union-Tribune reports. Myers was scheduled to resume jogging Tuesday, amounting to a positive sign in his recovery from the bone bruise he sustained when he fouled a pitch off his left foot. The 27-year-old is walking without a limp and should be able to run the bases and man the outfield by the weekend, which would allow him to re-enter the lineup for the start of the Padres' three-game set with the Angels.
Myers (foot) is only dealing with a bone bruise and Kevin Acee of the San Diego Union-Tribune surmises that he will likely miss the minimum amount of time required by his placement on the 10-day disabled list. Myers has missed a large chunk of the season already due to injury, so the news of a potential minimum stay will likely come as a relief to the Padres, as well as Myers' fantasy owners. While a minimum stay appears to be on the table for the star outfielder, interested parties should keep an eye out for a definitive timeline as Aug. 13 -- the first day he can return -- draws closer.
Myers was placed on the 10-day disabled list due to a left foot contusion. Myers will be eligible to return Aug. 13 for the series opener against the Angels. It was determined that he would need a little time off after picking up the injury during Thursday's outing, and Myers will remain in a walking boot for the next few days before the club reevaluates his foot. This marks the third time Myers has landed on the DL this season, as he's already missed 56 games due to arm and oblique injuries. In a corresponding move, the Padres recalled Franmil Reyes from the minors. Look for Hunter Renfroe to be the biggest beneficiary of Myers' absence.
