MIAMI - Tampa Bay Rays right fielder Wil Myers will miss at least two months with a slight stress fracture in his right wrist.
Myers was examined today by Dr. Douglas Carlan, a hand specialist, who discovered the fracture.
Myers will wear a cast on his right wrist for five to six weeks. He will be reevaluated when the cast is removed. The Rays medical staff will determine a rehab scheduled at that time.
Myers injured his hand during the 10th inning of Friday’s game in Boston. He was chasing a line drive by Red Sox catcher A.J. Pierzynski into the right-center field gap when he collided with center fielder Desmond Jennings.
Myers landed on his left hand then flipped over and slammed his right hand into the warning track dirt.
