Wil Myers

According to Joe Smith of the Tampa Bay Times, the Rays have placed Wil Myers on the 15-day disabled list. The team has recalled Jerry Sands in a corresponding move:

Myers suffered the injury on this play in the Rays loss to the Red Sox on Friday:

Myers, 23, is the reigning AL Rookie of the Year but off to a slow start in 2014. In 53 games he is batting .227 with 5 HR’s and 25 RBI’s.

Sands, 26, hasn’t appeared in the big leagues since 2012 with the Dodgers but represents a good option for the team against left-handed pitching. He is batting cleanup for the Rays against Jon Lester tonight.
