Wil Myers' struggles continued in Friday's loss to the White Sox, going 0-for-4 with a pair of strikeouts.
The reigning American League Rookie of the Year has had a miserable, injury-plagued season, slashing a mere .219/.295/.322 with six homers and 32 RBI in 301 at-bats. He will represent a nice buy-low candidate heading into 2015 fantasy drafts. Sep 19 - 10:44 PM

Wil Myers - OF - Rays

Wil Myers went 3-for-4 with an RBI and a run scored in Monday's extra-innings win over the Red Sox.

Myers doubled and scored in the third inning and was intentionally walked in the 10th before Matt Joyce delivered a walk-off single. The reigning American League Rookie of the Year hadn't had a multi-hit game since returning from the DL on August 20 until Monday's three-hit effort.

Wil Myers is starting in right field for the Rays on Monday night versus the Orioles.

It will be the first outfield start for Myers since he returned from the disabled list August 20. Myers served as the Rays' designated hitter in his first five games.

Wil Myers hit his sixth home run of the season during the Rays' 8-0 win over the Blue Jays on Friday.

Myers finished the game 1-for-3 with one RBI, two runs scored and his fourth stolen base of the season. This was Myers first home run since returning from the DL on August 20. There were high expectations for Myers coming into the 2014 season, but he struggled during his time on the field, and was sidelined for over two months with a broken wrist. Despite his current .221/.304/.343 line, Myers is more than capable of catching fire and should be picked up if he was dropped in your league.

Rays activated OF Wil Myers from the 60-day disabled list.

Myers missed nearly three months with a fractured right wrist but is ready to go now after slugging a couple homers over seven rehab games. The reigning American League Rookie of the Year was hitting just .227/.313/.354 at the time of his injury but is worth scooping back up in leagues where he might have been dropped.

Wil Myers (wrist) will not be activated from the disabled list Tuesday.

There was some speculation that Myers could be activated as soon as Tuesday, but he'll remain on his minor league rehab assignment for now. The 23-year-old is hitting .286 (6-for-21) with two home runs and a double over six games with Triple-A Durham. His return could be any day now.

Rays manager Joe Maddon plans to use Wil Myers (wrist) all around the outfield once he is activated.

Myers hit a two-run homer Sunday in his sixth rehab game with Triple-A Durham and could return to the Rays' active roster as soon as Tuesday. Maddon likes what he's been seeing from Kevin Kiermaier in right field, so Myers will probably play primarily in left field down the stretch. "(Myers) can play both (left and right)," Maddon said. "He can play all over the place. He’s not locked into one spot."

Wil Myers - OF - Rays

Rays manager Joe Maddon said Thursday that Wil Myers (wrist) could be activated from the disabled list as soon as the August 19-21 series versus the Tigers.

Myers is batting .444/.583/.778 with one home run in his first three rehab games with Triple-A Durham, showing no rust in spite of a nearly three-month long absence. The reigning American League Rookie of the Year winner was hitting just .227/.313/.354 over 53 games prior to breaking his wrist, but he's worth a roster stash if someone in your league dropped him.

Wil Myers (wrist) is expected to remain on his rehab assignment at Triple-A Durham for two weeks.

Myers was slated to begin the assignment Saturday before the game was rained out, so he's on track to rejoin the Rays in late August. The young outfielder has been on the shelf since late May with a fractured right wrist.

Wil Myers - OF - Rays

Wil Myers (wrist) will begin his minor league rehab assignment with Triple-A Durham on Saturday.

Myers has been sidelined since late May with a fractured right wrist. He will need at least a handful of games with Durham to get his timing back before he's cleared to rejoin the Rays, perhaps at some point next week if all goes well.

Wil Myers - OF - Rays

Wil Myers (wrist) is on schedule to begin a rehab assignment with Triple-A Durham on Saturday.

Myers will take batting practice on the field Monday for the first time since fracturing his wrist. He'll then join Durham on Wednesday to work out with them for a couple days and before playing in games next weekend. Myers is on pace to rejoin the Rays' lineup in mid-August. "When he talks about how it feels when he swings, he’s very positive," manager Joe Maddon said.

Wil Myers - OF - Rays

Wil Myers (wrist) will learn on Friday when he'll begin a rehab assignment.

It will be a day before he resumes taking batting practice. Myers has been hitting off a tee for a few days and played catch in the outfield prior to Tuesday's game. He figures to begin a rehab assignment sometime next week and is on track for a mid-August return.

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 - OF - Rays

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.
Jul 23 - 10:56 AM
Wil Myers - OF - Rays

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.
