Rays Injury Update: Wil Myers to take BP for first time since breaking wrist

By on 7/30/2014 06:00:00 AM

The Tampa Bay Rays entered Tuesday's game against the Milwaukee Brewers with a 52-54 record, fourth in the American League East. The Rays have been solid on the mound, ranked 11th in the Major Leagues in ERA, but have been hindered by injuries and are just 17th in the Major Leagues in runs scored. There is some good news on the injury front regarding outfielder Wil Myers, who is scheduled to take his first batting practice since breaking his wrist.

Our own Raymond Bureau reported on July 26 that Myers, who fractured his right hand on May 30 when he collided with center fielder Desmond Jennings, began swinging for the first time since fracturing his right wrist on May 30. 

Marc Topkin, who covers the Rays for the Tampa Bay Times, tweeted the following update on Myers.
Myers, the American League Rookie of the Year last season,  batted .293 with 13 home runs and 53 RBI. This season, he's struggled at the plate, hitting just .227 with five home runs and 25 RBI in 52 games.
