UPDATE, 5:59: Maddon said with Myers out that most of the rightfield time will be shared by Kevin Kiermaier (vs. RHPs) and Ben Zobrist (vs. LHPs).

DEVELOPING: The Rays got bad news on OF Wil Myers on Tuesday, as further examination showed he has a slight stress fracture in his right wrist and is likely to be out for at least months.

Myers, injured Friday, will be in a cast for five-six weeks, then undergo an MRI to re-evaluate his conditon and if cleared will start a rehab program at that point.

Myers, the 2013 AL Rookie of the Year, was hurt diving for a ball and colliding with CF Desmond Jennings on the final play of Friday's game. He had x-rays on Saturday in Boston, was placed on the disabled list and flew home on Sunday, saw team orthopedist Dr. Koco Eaton on Monday and then hand/wrist specialist Dr. Douglas Carlan on Tuesday.
