Padres outfielder Wil Myers has appeared in just 35 games this season due to an ongoing left wrist injury. He underwent surgery in the middle of June and was only expected to miss eight weeks, but here we are in late August and he’s just now beginning to take batting practice …
Good news for the #Padres: Will Myers took BP for the first time today. Two sets of 20 swings in the cage. Said he felt good.

Myers could be ready around mid-September if he’s able to avoid setbacks from here, but it’s a safe bet the out-of-contention Padres aren’t going to rush him. Myers — acquired from the Rays last December in a three-team, 11-player trade — has played in only 210 major league games since debuting in June 2013.
