Wil Myers (oblique) went 1-for-4 with a solo homer Sunday in his latest rehab game with Triple-A El Paso.
Myers is now 3-for-12 (.250) with a homer, a double, and five strikeouts through three rehab games as he makes his way back from a strained left oblique. He originally landed on the disabled list in late April, so the Padres will likely want him to play another couple of games in Triple-A before bringing him back. Still, a return later this week appears within reach assuming no setbacks. Jun 18 - 8:57 AM

Wil Myers (oblique) had an RBI double in four at-bats Thursday in his first rehab game with Triple-A El Paso.

Myers has appeared in just 10 games this season at the major league level due to oblique and arm issues, so he'll likely spend a whole week or more taking minor league at-bats in order to get his timing right. The 27-year-old should be off the disabled list before the end of June, and possibly before next weekend.

Wil Myers (oblique) will begin a rehab assignment on Thursday with Triple-A El Paso.

Myers has been on the shelf since April 29 with a strained left oblique. He's been able to do some light "baseball activities" over the past couple of weeks, but it sounds like things have really progressed lately if he's going to be facing live pitching. We'll see how things go for the 27-year-old, but it's not out of the question that Myers could return to San Diego by the end of June. July is a more realistic landing point, however.
Jun 13 - 9:39 PM's AJ Cassvell writes that early July is the "likeliest target" for Wil Myers' (oblique) return.

Myers took 20 dry swings Thursday, which is the first time he's swung a bat since he went on the disabled list in late April with a strained left oblique. He's not expected to be ready for a rehab assignment for another couple weeks, though. "We're talking about somebody who's laid off all physical activity for the better part of a month now," Padres manager Andy Green said. "How quickly his body gets up to speed -- it's going to take some time."

Wil Myers (oblique) did some light on-field drills Tuesday at Petco Park.

Myers was cleared to ramp up his rehab activities after a checkup with a doctor on Monday. He has appeared in just 10 games this season for the last-place Padres due to elbow and oblique injuries and is probably at least two weeks away from returning to the active roster.

Wil Myers (oblique) hopes to resume baseball activities Tuesday.

Myers will see a doctor Monday to evaluate his progress from a strained left oblique. He's missed all of May with the injury and it appears his absence will stretch into June.
May 28 - 2:02 PM

The Padres aren't counting on Wil Myers returning from his strained left oblique prior to June.

It was supposed to be a short-term injury for Myers, but obliques often take longer than expected. The prolonged absence likely was a big factor in the decision to call up Franmil Myers over the weekend.

Padres placed 1B/OF Wil Myers on the 10-day disabled list with a strained left oblique.

Myers suffered the injury on a swing during Saturday's game versus the Mets. It's his second DL stint already this season, as he missed two weeks of action earlier this month with a nerve issue in his right arm. Myers said Sunday that the oblique strain is a low grade one and he expects to be back in a couple weeks.

Wil Myers suffered a strained left oblique during Saturday's game against the Mets.

Myers sustained the injury on a swing in the fifth inning, immediately grabbing his side and removing himself from the game. No timetable was available on a possible return, but oblique strains are notoriously difficult to overcome and can't be rushed. Myers is certainly headed for a DL stint, his second of the young season.

Wil Myers left Saturday's game against the Mets after injuring himself during a swing.

Myers felt something after taking a cut at a 1-1 pitch in the fifth inning, grabbing his left side before exiting. Matt Szczur finished the at-bat. The Padres should update his status shortly.
Apr 28 - 10:48 PM

Wil Myers delivered two hits Wednesday in San Diego’s loss to the Rockies.

Myers went 2-for-4 while the rest of the lineup went a combined 2-for-24 with 14 strikeouts. His ninth-inning double off Wade Davis represented San Diego's only extra-base hit of the afternoon. Myers has looked good since coming back from the disabled list and now sports an impressive .333 average for the year.
Apr 25 - 7:29 PM

Wil Myers went 4-for-6 and drove in two runs in a blowout win over the Rockies on Monday.

Two of the hits were doubles, which were the first extra-base hits for Myers on the 2018 season. He also stole his first base of the season. After missing over two weeks with an elbow injury, the outfielder has come out swinging, and he now has an .884 OPS in his limited time. It's early, but perhaps this could be the superstar season so many have hoped for from Myers. He certainly has the talent to have one.
Apr 24 - 12:17 AM

Wil Myers is not in the Padres' lineup for Saturday's game against the Diamondbacks.

It's an expected day off for the outfielder, who played three straight minor league rehab games before returning for Friday's win over the Diamondbacks. He's expected to be back in there Sunday. With Manuel Margot back and in center field, Franchy Cordero slides over to right with Jose Pirela in left Saturday.
Apr 21 - 5:04 PM

Padres activated 1B/OF Wil Myers from the 10-day disabled list.

Myers has been sidelined for the last two weeks due to nerve irritation in his right arm. Before landing on the disabled list, he was 3-for-12 (.250) with one homer and one RBI.
Apr 20 - 6:20 PM

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.
