The Reds and Wil Myers agreed on a one-year deal with a mutual option for 2024.
The Padres declined their $20 million club option on Myers last month, making him a free agent after eight years with the team. There hadn't seemed to be too much interest in Myers based on the reports. He is coming off a season where he hit .261 with an OPS of .713 across just 77 games.
Padres RF Wil Myers was a beast on Friday night as San Diego hammered Kansas City 13-5. Myers finished 3-for-5 with a home run, three RBI and two runs scored in the win.
This was just Myers' second home run of the season in 178 at-bats. His best days are clearly behind him. But if he continues to hit near the middle of the Padres order and remains hot, he could be a solid streaming option for a brief time.
Padres OF Wil Myers had himself a day Sunday afternoon. He finished 3-for-4 with a double, two RBI and a run scored in San Diego's 6-0 win over the Nationals.
Myers came off of the injured list at the beginning of the month. He has not earned a ton of playing time, but when the veteran outfielder has had his chance, he's done a decent job. But until he gets regular playing time, Myers is best left on waivers.
Wil Myers could be activated from the injured list on Monday.
Myers has returned to the team from his rehab assignment, so it sounds like he will be activated very soon if not on Monday. It was reported earlier this week that he is expected to see some time at first base upon his return. Myers has been sidelined since the end of May due to inflammation in his right knee.
Wil Myers has been progressing well in his rehab and will continue his assignment with Single-A Lake Elsinore.
Myers was back in the Padres clubhouse on Friday getting checked out and said that his knee is feeling good and is responding well. He's been on the shelf since early June with right knee inflammation and has been rehabbing with Single-A Lake Elsinore. Look for him to return soon after the All-Star break.
