Wil Myers Out at Least Two Months

New, 27 comments

The 2013 AL Rookie of the Year has a slight stress fracture in his right wrist.

Kim Klement-USA TODAY Sports

It was announced by the Tampa Bay Rays that Wil Myers indeed has a slight stress fracture in his right wrist that will force him to miss around two months.

Myers, who suffered the injury last Friday when he collided with Desmond Jennings in the outfield, was initially supposed to miss between anywhere from 2-6 weeks. A visit to a hand specialist confirmed that it is a slight stress fracture.

Currently, the plan for Myers is to wear a cast for 5-6 weeks and then get re-evaluated. If all checks out, he'll begin rehab after the MRI.

The news regarding Myers injury is just the latest in a string of bad news for the Rays who are in the midst of a seven-game losing streak, the longest since an 11-game streak in 2009.
