Top prospect OF Wil Myers was removed from Triple-A Durham's Thursday matinee game due to a bruised right foot and is considered day to day.

Myers tweeted that his foot was fine, "just a little sore" and that he hoped to be back in Bulls lineup on Friday.

Myers unexpected departure - he was replaced by a pinch-runner after an RBI single in the seventh inning of a 4-2 game - created a quick burst of Twitter speculation that he was being promoted to the big leagues.

But Myers, who fouled a ball off his right foot previously, wasn't headed anywhere Thursday afternoon but back to his hometown of Thomasville, N.C., to watch his younger brother play.
