Wil Myers RF SD 8 Days

The Rays agreed to trade Myers to the Padres on Wednesday as part of a three-team deal with the Nationals, Ken Rosenthal of FOXSports.com reports.

New GM A.J. Preller has been aggressive in upgrading an offense that ranked dead last in runs scored last season (535), with this move coming less than a week after the team acquired Matt Kemp from the Dodgers. Myers hit just .227/.313/.354 in April and May before suffering a wrist injury that cost him the better part of three months. He was worse upon his return in August, managing just five extra-base hits (one homer) over his final 34 games, but Myers showed enough in just 88 games in 2013 to earn AL Rookie of the Year honors. Further, he's still just 24 and has tremendous pedigree, so there's reason for optimism heading into 2015, even with the move to another pitcher's park and lingering concern about the health of his wrist.

Myers is out of the lineup Friday against the Indians.

Myers will turn right field over to Matt Joyce, following a 3-for-16 showing in his past four starts. It's been a lost season for the 23-year-old Myers, as he missed a month and a half with a wrist injury and hasn't fully bounced-back, but he has improved upon his walk rate from a year ago, and his .279 BABIP lends some hope to a rebound in the batting average department.

Myers is not in the lineup Saturday against the White Sox, Roger Mooney of the Tampa Tribune reports.

With another hitless outing Friday, Myers is now batting just .203 since his late-August return from the DL. He'll sit Saturday in favor of Matt Joyce in right, but Myers will still make for an intriguing bounce-back candidate heading into 2015.

Myers is not in the lineup Tuesday against the Yankees.

Myers has recorded just one hit in his last four games (15 at-bats), so manager Joe Maddon will turn to Matt Joyce to make the start in right field Tuesday. The 23-year-old Myers started all but one of the team's first 14 games of September and should continue playing close to everyday over the final two weeks.

Myers is out of the lineup Sunday against the Orioles.

Myers will take a four-game hitting streak with him to the bench. He did strike out three of his four at-bats Saturday, however, and will take a day off following six straight starts. Matt Joyce will start in right field Sunday and bat sixth for the Rays.

Myers is out of the lineup Sunday against the Red Sox, Marc Topkin of the Tampa Bay Times reports.

Myers has started every game for the Rays since returning from the DL on Aug. 20, so manager Joe Maddon will just be giving him the afternoon off Sunday for maintenance purposes. In those 12 games with the Rays since returning, Myers has produced only six hits in 42 at-bats.

Myers was 1-for-3 with a pair of walks, a home run, and stolen base in Tampa Bay's victory over the Blue Jays on Friday night.

He just returned from a nearly three month stint on the disabled list on Wednesday so his offensive contributions are welcome. He's hitting just .222 with six homers and 26 RBI after missing so much time, but he could provide a nice boost over the last few weeks of the season.

Myers went 0-for-3 at the plate with a strikeout in his first game back from the disabled list Tuesday.

Having missed nearly three months of action, Myers was predictably rusty. Myers will look to turn around a disappointing season (.224/.308/.348 slash line in 201 at-bats) in the season's stretch run.

Myers is in the lineup Wednesday versus the Tigers, Steve Carney of 620 WDAE reports.

Myers was activated from the DL after more than two months away from the Rays as a result of a stress fracture in his right wrist. During a seven-game rehab assignment at Triple-A Durham, he hit .250/.419/.542 with two home runs, six RBI, three runs, and three stolen bases in 24 at-bats.

Myers (wrist) was activated from the disabled list Wednesday, Marc Topkin of the Tampa Bay Times reports.

Myers, who has been sidelined since May 31 due to a stress fracture in his right wrist, fared well in his rehab assignment at Triple-A Durham. In 24 at-bats, he slashed .250/.419/.542 with two homers, six RBI, three runs scored, and three stolen bases. It's unclear if he'll immediately enter the lineup, but he should assume everyday duty in right field shortly.
