Wil Myers (elbow) hopes to be activated from the disabled list on Friday in Arizona.

Myers will begin a rehab assignment with High-A Lake Elsinore on Tuesday and is slated to play two games for them. Assuming all goes well, he'll take Thursday off before rejoining the Padres' lineup Friday. Myers has missed the last couple weeks with nerve irritation in his right arm.
Apr 16 - 7:24 PM

Wil Myers (elbow) could rejoin the team as early as next weekend in Arizona, he said Saturday.

Myers will do a few more days of throwing and taking batting practice before heading out for a one- to two-game rehab assignment with High-A Lake Elsinore. If that timetable holds up, the 27-year-old should be ready at some point in the next week, as hoped. Myers said his arm is up to "97 percent" after hitting the DL on April 4 with right arm nerve irritation.
Apr 14 - 6:02 PM

Wil Myers (elbow) hit off a tee for the first time on Thursday.

He also resumed throwing on Thursday. Myers estimates that his elbow is at about 90 percent right now. He won't be activated when first eligible on Friday, though Myers should be ready for a rehab assignment within a few days and could return to the Padres sometime next week.
Apr 12 - 7:24 PM

Wil Myers (arm) is no longer expected to return from the disabled list when first eligible on Friday.

Myers tracked pitches in the batter's box Monday for the first time since landing on the disabled list April 4 with nerve irritation in his right arm, but he still hasn't been cleared to swing a bat or throw a ball. "I don’t expect him to come off right at 10 days," manager Andy Green said. "He’s going to have to swing a bat for a few days. The longer it gets, the more likely a rehab assignment becomes as well. … We’re hoping. It’s not coming as quickly as we’d like it to."
Apr 10 - 12:08 PM

Wil Myers (arm) told reporters on Wednesday that he expects to return to the Padres' lineup as soon as he can come off the 10-day disabled list.

In this case, that would be April 13. Myers was diagnosed with nerve irritation in his right triceps, and he'll reportedly not throw or swing the bat for 5-6 days. Assuming there are no setbacks during that rest period, he'll likely then play a rehab game or two with an eye on returning to action next Friday. That's a best-case scenario, however, and there's certainly a chance it could be a longer DL stay.
Apr 4 - 7:40 PM

Padres placed OF Wil Myers on the 10-day disabled list with right arm nerve irritation.

Myers tried to play through his troubles and there was hope he could return at some point this weekend, but instead will head to the 10-day disabled list. With Myers out, the Padres will likely rotate Cory Spangenberg and Hunter Renfroe in the corner outfield, with Matt Szczur getting some starts as well. Expect to see Myers back in the San Diego lineup by mid-April.
Apr 4 - 6:04 PM

Wil Myers (back, triceps) is out of the Padres' starting lineup on Wednesday against the Rockies.

It's back-to-back games Myers has missed due to the back and triceps issues. Jose Pirela is in right and batting leadoff for the Rockies, and Corey Spangenberg gets the start in left and will hit fifth against Colorado starter Jon Gray. Manny Margot also gets the day off, with Matt Szczur getting his first start in center field this year. Myers is expected to return for San Diego at some point this weekend.

Wil Myers (back, triceps) is out of the Padres' starting lineup on Tuesday night against the Rockies.

Myers injured his back on Friday and made an early exit from Monday's series opener versus Colorado due to triceps soreness. This absence Tuesday could be a combination of both things. Hunter Renfroe is in right field and batting cleanup against Rockies left-hander Kyle Freeland.
Apr 3 - 6:40 PM

Wil Myers exited Monday's game against the Rockies with triceps soreness.

Myers homered in his first at-bat after sitting out Saturday's game due to back tightness, but he was forced to leave in the fifth inning due to a triceps issue which arose during batting practice. The injury made it difficult for him to throw the ball. The good news is that X-rays and an ultrasound came back negative, but he's set to be reevaluated on Tuesday. A stint on the disabled list can't be ruled out.
Apr 3 - 7:38 AM

Wil Myers hit his first homer of the season in a loss to the Rockies on Monday.

The homer was Myers only hit, and it was a solo homer off of Chad Bettis. He's been bothered by back issues, but the fact that he's back in the lineup already shows that it probably wasn't a serious issue. He'll be hitting in the middle of the San Diego lineup all season assuming good health.
Apr 3 - 1:46 AM

Wil Myers (back) is in the Padres' starting lineup Monday night against the Rockies.

Myers missed Saturday's series finale against the Brewers due to a minor back issue. He is starting in right field and batting second Monday versus Colorado right-hander Chad Bettis.
Apr 2 - 5:10 PM

Wil Myers (back) is available on Saturday for pinch-hitting duties.

Myers reportedly tried to talk his way into the lineup, but San Diego manager Andy Green is understandably being cautious this early in the year. Don't be surprised if we don't see Myers back in the lineup until after the weekend.
Mar 31 - 6:26 PM

Wil Myers (back) is out of the lineup on Saturday for the Padres' contest against the Brewers.

Myers left Friday's game with reported back stiffness. Hunter Renfroe is starting in right in his place with Jose Pirela in left. The full lineup for the Brewers on Saturday goes: Manny Margot CF, Pirela LF, Eric Hosmer 1B, Renfroe RF, Christian Villanueva 3B, Carlos Asuaje 2B, Freddy Galvis SS, Austin Hedges C, and Luis Perdomo on the mound.
Mar 31 - 4:27 PM

Wil Myers went 2-for-3 with a solo home run and two total RBI in Saturday's Cactus League win over the Reds.

Myers launched a solo home run in the first inning, then notched an RBI single in the second stanza. The slugger has socked four home runs during his spring prep for the 2018 campaign and has been swinging a hot stick throughout Cactus League action. Through 56 at-bats, Myers is slashing .357/.368/.625 with seven extra-base hits. He has been good for at least 25 home runs and 20 steals each of the past two seasons.
