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 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.

Wil Myers went 2-for-5 with an inside-the-park home run and four RBI in the Rays' 5-1 win over the Yankees on Sunday.

Myers has now homered in two straight after hitting just two in the season's first month. Sunday's was of a different variety -- Myers hit a long fly ball to center that ricocheted off Yankees center fielder Jacoby Ellsbury and into right field, allowing him to wheel around the bases to score -- but they all count the same on the scorecard. After scuffling through April, maybe we're seeing some signs that Myers is turning it around.

Wil Myers went 3-for-7 and knocked in the go-ahead run in the top of the 14th as the Rays topped the Yankees 10-5 on Friday.

Myers collected his second RBI of the night when he drove in Desmond Jennings to break the tie in the 14th. The Rays piled on from there, scoring a total of five runs off Chris Leroux. It was Myers' fourth three-hit game of the season, which seems like a high total for a guy hitting just .241. Prior to tonight, he hadn't driven in a run since his big two-homer game in the 16-1 rout of the Yankees on April 19.

Wil Myers went 0-for-7 with a walk in Thursday's doubleheader against the Red Sox.

Myers had hit little seven-game hitting streak snapped in the day game, but it was a pretty lousy streak anyway; he had a total of eight hits and no RBI in the seven games. Myers had just two really good games in April anyway and they were games in which the Rays scored 16 and 11 runs. He's one of the big reasons the offense has been so slow to get it together this year.

Wil Myers went 2-for-3 with two runs scored in the Rays' loss to the Red Sox on Tuesday.

Myers singled, doubled and walked on the evening, scoring two of the Rays' four runs. He's got a modest seven-game hitting streak going, and after Tuesday's contest his average is up to .245. He's still not hitting for power, though -- his last and only home runs of the season came on April 19.
