BOSTON (AP) - The Tampa Bay Rays on Sunday placed right fielder Wil Myers on the 15-day disabled list with a sprained his right wrist.
Myers was injured on the final play of a 3-2 loss Friday to the Boston Red Sox when his hand slapped the ground as he landed following a collision with center fielder Desmond Jennings. The collision led to a game-ending triple by A.J. Pierzynski in the 10th inning.
