Padres add OF Wil Myers, 1B Eric Hosmer to IL

The San Diego Padres’ COVID-19 concerns continued Wednesday with both outfielder Wil Myers and first baseman Eric Hosmer placed on the injured list due to health and safety protocols.

The moves come one day after star shortstop Fernando Tatis Jr. was placed on the IL before Tuesday’s game at Colorado after testing positive for COVID-19, according to Padres manager Jayce Tingler. Myers left that game in the third inning and tested positive as well.

Both Tatis and Myers are asymptomatic, Tingler said Tuesday night.

Hosmer also left Tuesday’s game early due to contact-tracing protocols. In addition to Tatis, center fielder Jorge Mateo and left fielder Jurickson Profar were placed on the IL Tuesday due to contact tracing.

Tatis, Myers and Hosmer have combined for 17 of the Padres’ 35 home runs this season and 50 of the team’s 147 runs scored.

Left extremely short-handed entering Wednesday’s doubleheader against the Colorado Rockies, the Padres recalled left-hander Nick Ramirez and outfielder Brian O’Grady from Triple-A El Paso. They also purchased the contract of outfielder Patrick Kivlehan.

O’Grady, who has just 31 games of major league experience was in the Padres starting lineup for the doubleheader opener, as was second baseman Tucupita Marcano (11 games) and shortstop Ha-Seong Kim (28 games).
