Wil Myers headed back to DL due to continued discomfort in wrist

As if today wasn’t eventful enough already for the Padres, outfielder/first baseman Wil Myers is headed back to the disabled list due to continued discomfort in his left wrist.

Myers originally hit the disabled list about a month ago due to what was termed as left wrist inflammation. He was activated last Thursday and played in three games, but he’s obviously not close to 100 percent.

Myers recently told AJ Cassavell of MLB.com that he has dealt with effects of a bone spur in his wrist for most of his life. He acknowledged that there’s a “high possibility” he’ll eventually have surgery on the wrist, but he was hoping to delay a decision until the offseason.

Myers, who was acquired as part of the big three-team trade with the Rays and Nationals over the winter, is batting .277/.327/.459 with five home runs and 19 RBI over 35 games this season.
