The Padres announced that outfielder Wil Myers has been activated from the 60-day disabled list on Friday and is in the starting lineup, batting sixth and playing first base against the Dodgers.

Myers had been out since mid-June after undergoing surgery on his left wrist. The wrist issue caused him to miss over a month between May 10 and June 11, and only played in three June games before returning to the disabled list. He was batting .277/.327/.459 with five home runs and 19 RBI in 159 plate appearances for the Padres.

The Padres acquired Myers in December from the Rays in a three-team trade that also involved the Nationals.
