Padres place Wil Myers on disabled list with wrist tendonitis

Tuesday May 19th, 2015

The San Diego Padres placed outfielder Wil Myers on the 15-day disabled list with tendonitis in his left wrist, the team announced Tuesday. The move is retroactive to May 11. 

Myers has not played since May 10. The Padres announced on Friday that he would miss three to four days after an MRI revealed fluid buildup. He took batting practice on Sunday but did not swing at 100% intensity, the San Diego Union-Tribune reported.

Myers began the season playing centerfield but played first base in the last three games before he was injured because Yonder Alonso went on the DL with a shoulder injury. 

Myers is batting .291 with an .833 OPS this season, primarily as the team's leadoff hitter.
