Dennis Lin, beat writer for the San Diego Union-Tribune, shares the bad news

Myers has been limited to 35 games this season due to ongoing wrist issues and this procedure is going to keep him out of action until at least mid-August. The 24-year-old outfielder was acquired from the Rays back in December as part of a three-team, 11-player trade. He was batting .277/.327/.459 with five home runs, 19 RBI, and 30 runs scored in his first season with San Diego. Will Venable and Melvin Upton Jr. will handle center field for the fourth-place Padres, who entered play Wednesday with a disappointing 32-35 record.
