Myers gets day off after tweaking forearm

Wil Myers felt something in his left forearm when he picked a throw in the dirt at first base Tuesday night. A day later, he was out of the starting lineup.

Spin: The Padres had planned on giving Myers a day off -- he's played 45 of 46 games this season, while starting in 43. But it also doesn't appear to be a coincidence that the off-day comes Tuesday in San Francisco after his forearm acted up for the second time in nine days. The only game Myers has missed this season came May 15 in Milwaukee, when he dealt with a similar injury -- tightness in the under-side of his forearm. "We're aware of what he's going through from a health perspective," said Padres manager Green. "That doesn't mean he's not available or can't be used. I think if you're sitting around a time where you have an off-day coming up [Thursday], and you're trying to figure out how well you rest somebody to make sure they come back and they don't have any residual effect of something they felt in Milwaukee. So he's very much available, but we are cognizant of what he's going through."

Padres' Wil Myers: Says absence Tuesday not forearm-related

Myers said his absence from Tuesday's lineup was not injury-related, AJ Cassavell of MLB.com reports.

He did acknowledge that he felt something in his forearm Monday night, in the same spot he experienced tightness earlier this month, but Myers said he tested the forearm and that it felt fine. It sounds like Myers is confident he will be back in the lineup for Wednesday's series finale, but the training staff and manager Andy Green will have the final say.
