Wil Myers (wrist) hit off a tee on Friday.

It's the first time he's done so since fracturing his right wrist back in late May. Myers is expected back in mid-August if all goes well.

Wil Myers (wrist) has begun some light throwing and is swinging with a Speed Hitter device.

Myers is aiming to rejoin the Rays' lineup in mid-August as he works his way back from a fractured right wrist. The reigning American League Rookie of the Year was hitting just .227/.313/.354 over 53 games prior to the injury.

Rays transferred OF Wil Myers from the 15-day disabled list to the 60-day disabled list.

The move clears a spot for the newly-promoted Curt Casali on the 40-man roster. Myers has been sidelined since late May with a fractured right wrist and isn't expected to return until around mid-August, so being transferred to the 60-day DL will not have an impact on his timeline.

Wil Myers (wrist) had his cast removed Friday and has been cleared to resume baseball activities.

If all goes well from here on out, he should rejoin the Rays around mid-August. Myers has been on the shelf since late May with a fractured right wrist and was batting just .227/.313/.354 over 53 games before the injury.

Wil Myers (wrist) will be examined Friday to determine whether his cast can come off.

If he gets the cast off, Myers can begin his rehab and would be in line for a mid-August return in a best-case scenario. The young outfielder has been on the shelf since late May with a fractured right wrist.

Wil Myers will miss at least two months due to a small stress fracture in his right wrist.

Awful news for the struggling Rays. Myers will have to wear a cast for 5-6 weeks before beginning the rehab process, so he's not expected to come off the disabled list until the start of August at the very earliest. It's another disappointing blow in a frustrating sophomore campaign for Myers.

Wil Myers (wrist) will see a hand specialist Tuesday.

There's a chance that Myers could be dealing with a small fracture in his wrist. For what it's worth, Rays manager Joe Maddon hears that surgery will not be necessary. Either way, we should know a lot about a possible timetable after Tuesday.

Rays placed OF Wil Myers on the 15-day disabled list, retroactive to May 31, with a sprained right wrist.

Myers injured the wrist Friday in a collision with teammate Desmond Jennings. He's flown back to St. Petersburg to be examined by Dr. Koco Eaton, at which point more should be known about how long he'll be sidelined. Jerry Sands has replaced Myers on the Rays' roster.

Wil Myers will see a doctor Saturday for his right wrist.

Myers injured the wrist Friday in a collision with teammate Desmond Jennings and had it in a plastic brace when he showed up in the Rays' clubhouse Saturday. The team should provide an update at some point Saturday night. It looks like this could be more than a minor issue.

Wil Myers is not in Saturday's lineup against the Red Sox.

Myers is dealing with a sore right wrist, which he said he suffered after colliding with teammate Desmond Jennings in Friday's game against the Red Sox. Matt Joyce will start in left field in Myers' place and bat third.

Wil Myers went 1-for-3 with a walk and a two-run home run in Wednesday's loss to the Blue Jays.

Myers' second-inning blast off of Liam Hendriks was the Rays' only offense on the night. Now with five home runs and 25 runs batted in, Myers has struggled in his sophomore season after taking home AL Rookie of the Year honors last year. He is slashing .228/.305/.355.

Wil Myers is not in the Rays starting lineup for Saturday's game against the Red Sox.

Manager Joe Maddon said it was simply a planned day of rest for Myers. Brandon Guyer will get the start in left field and hit fifth for the Rays on Saturday.

Wil Myers - OF - Rays

Wil Myers finished 2-for-4 with a double, RBI and a run scored in Thursday's loss to the Angels.

Myers was comatose in April, slashing an anemic .226/.308/.333. He's not lighting the world on fire in May, either, but he's shown signs of getting his timing back. His OPS is more than 100 points higher in May, and most of the gains are in the power department via slugging percentage. Don't stop believing, Myers owners. He's got the overall slash up to .258/.318/.396.

Wil Myers - OF - Rays

Wil Myers went 1-for-3 with a double and a run scored in Wednesday's win over the Mariners.

The teams combined for five hits in the game, and Myers' double was one of just two extra-base hits. The double was his ninth of the season and fourth in his last 10 games. That's a small glimmer of hope for what's largely been tough sledding for Myers thus far this year -- after Wednesday's game, he's batting .252/.314/.387 in 155 at-bats.
