The Padres announced on Wednesday that outfielder Wil Myers has been placed on the 10-day disabled list with nerve irritation in his right arm. Pitcher Phil Maton has been recalled from Triple-A El Paso.
Myers apparently suffered the injury during batting practice before Monday’s game against the Rockies. He tried to play through the injury but had to exit the game after his first at-bat. Across three games so far, Myers has a pair of singles and a home run.
Maton, 25, pitched 43 innings out of the bullpen past year, finishing with a 4.19 ERA and a 46/14 K/BB ratio.
