Myers is out of the lineup Sunday versus the Giants, Kevin Acee of The San Diego Union-Tribune reports. Myers started the first two games of the series and will head to the bench for Sunday afternoon's finale. Jurickson Profar will start in right field and bat seventh for San Diego.
Myers was a late scratch for Wednesday's game against the Diamondbacks for precautionary reasons due to contact tracing, but he's since been cleared and is available off the bench. The 30-year-old was scratched from the starting nine shortly before first pitch Wednesday, but there's apparently no cause for concern. Myers should be back in the lineup shortly after the precautionary absence in Arizona.

The 30-year-old was penciled in to start in right field Wednesday, per usual, but he was replaced in the lineup by Jorge Mateo at the last minute. Myers figures to be dealing with some sort of injury, though the Padres have yet to make an announcement.
Myers is out of the lineup for Sunday's game against the Dodgers. Myers will get a chance to rest his legs after he racked up a career-high three stolen bases in Saturday's 5-4 loss. Jurickson Profar replaces Myers in right field.
Myers went 1-for-4 with three stolen bases and a run in Saturday's loss to the Dodgers. Despite notching only one hit, Myers ran wild on the bases, stealing second following a single in the second inning and then swiping both second and third -- the latter on a double-steal -- after getting on base via fielder's choice in the eighth. With the trio of thefts, Myers has already surpassed his total of two steals he amassed across 55 games in 2020.
