NEW YORK -- Shut down from a rehab program that saw him hitting off the tee as recently as Friday, outfielder Wil Myers won't swing for five or six days after an examination of his injured left wrist revealed little more than "general soreness," assistant general manager Fred Uhlman Jr. said Tuesday.
Myers will continue therapy and be re-examined early next week, after which it will be determined if he can resume baseball activities. The Padres were hopeful Myers could rejoin the team on this current 10-game road trip, which began Tuesday against the Mets at Citi Field. That looks unlikely now, as San Diego pledged to be careful with Myers following this minor setback from June wrist surgery.
