News: Myers (wrist) was transferred to the 60-day disabled list Thursday, Roger Mooney of the Tampa Tribune reports. Impact: With Myers not expected back until mid-August, the move to the 60-day DL doesn't do much to change his predicament, since the stint has a retroactive date of July 30. Myers still has yet to receive clearance to resume baseball activities.(RotoWire, )

News: Myers (wrist) is no longer wearing a cast, Marc Topkin of the Tampa Bay Times reports. Impact: Beyond that, Myers' current progress in rehab work is somewhat unclear, but the removal of his cast is a good indication that his wrist is healing as planned.(RotoWire, )

News: Myers (wrist) has not actually been cleared to resume baseball activities yet, Roger Mooney of the Tampa Tribune reports. Impact: Apparently, Myers is not quite ready to start back up with baseball activities, as he must first build ample strength in the wrist. He was just cleared to remove his cast, and manager Joe Maddon suggested prior to Friday's game that Myers likely won't be back until mid-August.(RotoWire, )

News: Myers (wrist) has been cleared to resume baseball activities, Roger Mooney of the Tampa Tribune reports. Impact: The reigning AL Rookie of the Year's right wrist was confined to a cast for close to six weeks, but he was given the green light to remove the cast Friday and is set to start slowly ramping up his baseball activities. While Myers still does not have an estimated timetable for a return, it seems well within the realm of possibility to think he could be back by early-to-mid August.(RotoWire, )

News: Myers will have his right wrist examined Friday to determine if his wrist has healed well enough for the cast to be removed, the Tampa Tribune reports. He was diagnosed with a stress fracture in his wrist June 3, and the initial timetable projected that Myers would have to have his wrist in a cast for five-to-six weeks. Impact: Even if Myers' wrist has healed enough for the cast to be removed, he will have to go through rehab work. Rays manager Joe Maddon believes the best-case scenario for Myers would be a mid-August return to the lineup. If he can improve upon his pre-injury numbers -- he was batting .227 with five home runs -- the 23-year-old Myers could be a boon to the Rays offense down the stretch run, especially if the Rays continue to fight their way into contention in a very winnable AL East and fairly open Wild Card race.(RotoWire, )
