  • Padres' Wil Myers: Could begin rehab assignment soon

    Myers (knee) has been running regularly and took batting practice Saturday, and Padres manager Bob Melvin said the outfielder could begin a rehab assignment during the coming week, AJ Cassavell of MLB.com reports.

    Myers has been sidelined since early June after being diagnosed with right knee inflammation, but he was able to avoid surgery and looks to be close to starting up a rehab assignment. The veteran has dealt with the nagging injury throughout the first half of the season, which could be a factor in his mediocre numbers thus far. Myers registered a .234/.276/.306 slash line with just one home run, 19 RBI and no stolen-base attempts in 32 games prior to his placement on the injured list.

  • Padres' Wil Myers: Won't require surgery

    Myers (knee) won't undergo surgery and will instead opt for a plan that involves rest and rehab, Jeff Sanders of The San Diego Union-Tribune reports.

    Myers was optimistic that his right knee injury wouldn't require a procedure, and doctors officially recommended that he'll be able to rest and rehab over the next few weeks while his knee improves. The Padres said that the 31-year-old could have a rehab timetable as short as 3-to-4 weeks, but the outfielder will be deliberate in his recovery process to prevent any setbacks. However, Myers is hopeful that he'll be able to return to the field in under six weeks.

  • Padres' Wil Myers: Hoping to avoid surgery

    Myers is "leaning against" having surgery on his right knee in favor of a plan that includes rest and rehab, Jeff Sanders of The San Diego Union-Tribune reports.

    Myers met with doctors Tuesday and is still awaiting their recommendation, but there appears to be optimism that his injured knee can improve without surgery. Kevin Acee of The San Diego Union-Tribune previously reported that there were "differing opinions" within the organization about the best path forward for the veteran, who has been on the shelf since June 3. It isn't clear how long he'll be out under either scenario, but it's logical to expect that surgery would have a longer timeline for a return than rest and rehabilitation.

  • Padres' Wil Myers: Placed on 10-day IL

    Myers was placed on the 10-day injured list Friday with right knee inflammation.

    The move is backdated to June 1. Brent Rooker was recalled from Triple-A in a corresponding move and he may occupy the short side of a right field platoon with Nomar Mazara while Myers is sidelined.

  • Padres' Wil Myers: Remains out Friday

    Myers (knee) is not in Friday's lineup against the Brewers.

    He got a gel injection in his inflamed right knee following Tuesday's game and has yet to get back into game action. Nomar Mazara is starting in right field and batting sixth.

  • Padres' Wil Myers: Not in Thursday's lineup

    Myers (knee) is out of the lineup for Thursday's game at Milwaukee, Kevin Acee of The San Diego Union-Tribune reports.

    The 31-year-old received a gel injection for his inflamed right knee after Tuesday's loss to the Cardinals, and he won't be in the lineup Thursday as originally expected. Despite that initial optimism, it's not a major surprise Meyers will be forced to miss at least one game while recovering from the injection. Nomar Mazara had his contract selected from Triple-A El Paso and will make his debut for the Padres in right field.

  • Padres' Wil Myers: Gets injection for knee

    Myers received a gel injection for his inflamed right knee following Tuesday's 3-2 loss to the Cardinals and expects to rejoin the lineup Thursday in Milwaukee, Dennis Lin of The Athletic reports.

    Myers sat out two straight games with knee inflammation, but he reclaimed his starting role in right field and went 0-for-4 in Tuesday's loss. The 31-year-old seemed to suggest the gel injection was a pre-planned arrangement rather than the result of any setback he experienced, but he was still forced to the bench for Wednesday's 5-2 loss while he waited for the shot to take effect. If Myers ends up needing an extra day to recover from the injection, Jose Azocar could be in line for another start in the outfield Thursday.

  • Padres' Wil Myers: Resting Wednesday

    Myers is out of the lineup for Wednesday's game against the Cardinals.

    After missing a pair of games due to right knee inflammation, Myers returned to the lineup for Tuesday's 3-2 loss and went 0-for-4 with a strikeout. The Padres haven't indicated that Myers suffered any setbacks with his knee, so he's likely just getting some extra maintenance as San Diego wraps up its series in St. Louis with a day game after a night game.

  • Padres' Wil Myers: Back in action

    Myers (knee) will return to the lineup Tuesday against St. Louis.

    Myers missed the last two games while dealing with right knee inflammation, but he's ready to go after the brief break. He'll bat fifth and play right field, pushing Jose Azocar back to the bench.

  • Padres' Wil Myers: Not starting Monday

    Myers (knee) will sit Monday against the Cardinals.

    Myers will be on the bench for the second straight game while he deals with right knee inflammation. Jose Azocar gets the start in right field for the second straight game. Myers was reportedly available off the bench Sunday against the Pirates, so it's likely he's available in a similar capacity Monday.

  • Padres' Wil Myers: Day-to-day with knee injury

    Myers is considered day-to-day with right knee inflammation ahead of Monday's series opener against the Cardinals, AJ Cassavell of MLB.com reports.

    Myers was out of the lineup Sunday against the Pirates after drawing 16 consecutive starts, and he didn't appear off the bench during the team's win over Pittsburgh. Manager Bob Melvin revealed after the game that Myers is dealing with a knee issue, but the 31-year-old would have been available off the bench if needed. If Myers misses additional time, Jose Azocar should see increased playing time in right field.

  • Padres' Wil Myers: Idle Sunday

    Myers is out of the lineup for Sunday's game against the Pirates.

    Since returning from the injured list May 10, Myers has started in all of the Padres' subsequent 16 games. He's managed a pedestrian .664 OPS during that 16-game stretch, but he doesn't look to be at any risk of losing out on a regular role as a result. Jose Azocar will cover right field Sunday in Myers' stead.

  • Padres' Wil Myers: Tallies three hits Sunday

    Myers went 3-for-5 with a double, a run and three RBI in a 10-1 victory versus San Francisco on Sunday.

    Myers set off the Padres' offensive outburst with a first-inning run-scoring single. He drove in two more runs in the fourth frame with a double to left field. This was Myers' second three-hit game of the season and fourth multi-hit performance over his past nine contests. Over that stretch, he is slashing .333/.375/.472 with a home run, 10 RBI and eight runs.

  • Padres' Wil Myers: Collects three RBI

    Myers went 2-for-5 with three RBI and a run scored during Sunday's 7-3 win over Atlanta in extra innings.

    The 31-year-old didn't have any extra-base hits Sunday, but he went 2-for-2 with runners in scoring position to help power San Diego's offense. Myers had a .527 OPS prior to landing on the injured list in late April with a bruised right thumb, but he's 6-for-21 with a home run, a walk, six RBI and four runs in five games since returning from the injury.

  • Padres' Wil Myers: Finally goes yard

    Myers went 3-for-4 with a home run, two runs scored and two RBI in Friday's 11-6 win over Atlanta.

    His sixth-inning solo shot off Max Fried was Myers' first homer of the year in his 18th game, as a thumb injury has cost him significant time so far. His .235/.260/.324 slash line, six runs and 10 RBI are far from impressive, but if Myers is finally feeling 100 percent healthy, his numbers should begin to rise.

  • Padres' Wil Myers: Back from injured list

    Myers (thumb) was activated from the 10-day injured list Tuesday.

    Myers has been sidelined the past two weeks with a bruised right thumb, but he'll rejoin the active roster ahead of Tuesday's matchup with the Cubs. The 31-year-old is off to a slow start in 2022 with a .218/.254/.273 slash line and 32.2 percent strikeout rate through 15 games, and he has yet to hit his first home run.

  • Padres' Wil Myers: Hitting off tee

    Myers (thumb) is expected to begin hitting off a tee Thursday, Jeff Sanders of The San Diego Union-Tribune reports.

    Myers has experienced a significant decrease in the swelling in his right thumb since landing on the shelf a week ago, and he could return as soon as the upcoming series against the Cubs, which begins Monday. However, he'll need to see how his body responds to the increase in activity, and it's also possible he'll require a brief rehab stint.
