The Rays made the announcement on their team Twitter feed Sunday morning ...

OFFICIAL: #Rays select 1B/OF Jerry Sands from @DurhamBulls, place Wil Myers on 15-day DL (R wrist sprain). INF Tim Beckham to 60-day DL.

— Tampa Bay Rays (@RaysBaseball) June 1, 2014

Myers suffered the injury Friday night at Fenway Park in an ugly outfield collision with teammate Desmond Jennings. Myers went airborne over Jennings, then crashed hard onto his back and right arm.

This comes with rough timing for the last-place Rays, who have dropped five consecutive games.

Myers was batting just .227/.313/.354 with five home runs and 25 RBI in 53 games this season. He won American League Rookie of the Year honors in 2013 after hitting .293/.354/.478 across 88 games.
