Wil Myers lands on disabled list with sprained right wrist

Jun 1, 2014, 12:18 PM EST

The Rays made the announcement on their team Twitter feed Sunday morning …

Myers suffered the injury Friday night at Fenway Park in an ugly outfield collision with teammate Desmond Jennings. Myers went airborne over Jennings, then crashed hard onto his back and right arm.

This comes with rough timing for the last-place Rays, who have dropped five consecutive games.

Myers was batting just .227/.313/.354 with five home runs and 25 RBI in 53 games this season. He won American League Rookie of the Year honors in 2013 after hitting .293/.354/.478 across 88 games.

    Lord Love a Duck…what else can go wrong? The Rays seem destined to break my heart in every conceivable way this season. Like it isn’t bad losing multiple games in a row, now they’re engaging in bean ball wars, running their mouths, and crashing into each other with resultant injuries. Honestly, this team was so much better when Luke Scott was on it . . . actually it wasn’t but at least he was the focal point for negative energy. Now it seems to have disseminated throughout the team. The whole lot of them need their karma shriven and a mojo infusion, because The Fundamentals sure aren’t working.

    Cur, are you rooting for the Floating Shark-head Carpets AND the Beavermen? What is this, some sort of yin-yang thing where you cheer for the first and last place teams? :-)

      I’ve always rooted for The Rays. When Beaver Futility in a stacked AL BEast was at an all-time high there was no one else to root for that had a chance and wasn’t The Red Sox or The Empire. Besides, I liked Madden and Dave Martinez and always wanted to see those guys get ahead. Its habit to want to see them do well. It does the Beav no harm to see The Rays bury the Sox in the cellar, either.
