Injuries a Problem for Padres on Road Trip

San Diego Padres IF Adam Rosales

Myers scratched with forearm tightness, Padres lose finale – San Diego Union-Tribune
Wil Myers originally was in Sunday’s lineup against Milwaukee. On paper, his presence represented a significant relief. The Padres first baseman had exited Saturday’s extra-inning victory due to a cramp in his left calf. After he ran on the field Sunday morning, both he and the training staff determined he was ready to play.

A few minutes before first pitch at Miller Park, he turned into the Padres’ latest injury concern. Myers was scratched with what the club called left forearm tightness. Without him, the Padres went on to a 3-2 loss against the Brewers, sealing a split of a four-game series. San Diego (17-22) finished 4-3 on its two-city road trip while dealing with several starters already on the DL and new injuries to Myers, Derek Norris, and Andrew Cashner.
