Padres’ Wil Myers on 10-day DL with bruised left foot
CHICAGO (AP) — The San Diego Padres placed left fielder Wil Myers on the 10-day disabled list with a left foot bone bruise before Saturday’s game with the Chicago Cubs. The move is retroactive to Friday.
Outfielder Franmil Reyes was recalled from Triple-A El Paso to replace Myers on the roster. Reyes has played in 38 games for the Padres this season, batting .221 with six home runs and eight RBIs in 104 at-bats.
Myers was injured Thursday night when he fouled a ball off the foot. He will wear a walking boot for a few days. “Hopefully, it heals quickly,” manager Andy Green said. “You never know with these type of things.”
Myers is hitting .278 with nine home runs and 30 RBIs in 44 games. This is his third stint on the DL this season, and he’s missed a total of 58 games through Saturday.
