The Tampa Bay Rays kept outfielder Wil Myers out of yesterday's lineup as a precaution. The rookie is dealing with a left wrist injury, but manager Joe Maddon doesn't believe the ailment is significant, telling Bill Chastain of MLB.com that he views it as a "day-to-day thing." Maddon added that he expects Myers to suit up and return to Tampa Bay's lineup today. "I actually believe he's going to play tomorrow," Maddon said. "He went out and took some swings and just felt a little sore on the finish. He might be able to pinch-hit today, also. But again, I don't think it's anything bad, just a day kind of thing." Myers told reporters that he initially injured his wrist while sliding against the Minnesota Twins prior to the All-Star break. He also doesn't consider the injury to be too bad, confirming that his absence from the lineup was a precautionary move more than anything. "It wasn't too bad. I could play through it, just yesterday kind of flared up a little more than I would like," Myers said. "Just precaution right now." Myers is confident that he'll play today, and it's a good thing for the Rays. The 22-year-old has been extremely effective in his first season with the team, hitting .310/.336/.460 with five doubles and four home runs over 122 plate appearances.
