Wil Myers has officially been released by the Reds.
Myers was designated for assignment earlier this week and officially cleared waivers Friday. He is free to sign with any team. He slashed .189/.257/.283 with the Reds this season.
The Reds designated Wil Myers for assignment Tuesday.
The team reinstated the outfielder from the 10-day IL and opted to move on from the veteran. The 32-year-old signed a one-year deal with the Reds in the offseason and could become free to sign with another team soon.
Wil Myers is set to begin a rehab assignment on Friday with Triple-A Louisville.
Myers landed on the injured list in late May. He could return to the Reds at some point in the next week or two as long as all goes well on his rehab assignment.
Cincinnati Reds veteran Wil Myers is not in Wednesday's starting lineup against the Cardinals.
Despite a lefty in Steven Matz starting for the Cardinals, the righty-swinging Myers will take a seat to start this one. It's been a trying season for Myers as he's hitting just .189 with three homers, two steals, and a .540 OPS across 37 appearances on the campaign.
Wil Myers went 1-for-4 with a solo home run in Sunday's 17-4 loss to the White Sox, bringing his season total to three.
Despite the homer, Myers is still struggling at the plate this season with a .214 batting average and a high strikeout rate of 0.351. The Reds will need Myers to improve his production if they hope to turn their season around.
