Wil Myers to have surgery on bone spur in wrist, likely out 2 months

OAKLAND, Calif. -- San Diego Padres center fielder Wil Myers will have surgery to remove a bone spur in his left wrist and is likely to miss the next two months.

Myers has been bothered by soreness in his wrist for most of the season and missed 28 games while on the disabled list. He was reinstated last week and played in three games before going back on the DL on Monday.

An MRI was taken of Myers' wrist before the decision for surgery was made.

Interim Padres manager Pat Murphy said Myers will undergo surgery Thursday and will be out eight weeks before resuming baseball activities.

Will Venable and Melvin Upton Jr. are likely replacements for Myers. Venable started in center field for the Padres in Oakland on Wednesday.
