After he made the play on a relatively routine Anthony Alford fly ball, Myers skipped, apparently favoring his right leg. The club has not yet provided an update on the injury.
Myers entered the game red-hot, fresh off a five-RBI night on Monday. In 12 games this season, Myers is batting .341 with a 1.096 OPS.
The extent of any potential injury remains unclear, but the Padres have certainly seen their share of rough luck in that department already this season. Star shortstop Fernando Tatis Jr. landed on the injured list last week with a partially dislocated left shoulder.
Despite the attrition, the Padres are off to an 8-3 start, a testament to the depth put in place by general manager A.J. Preller during the offseason. But that depth could be facing another test with Myers’ injury.
Utility man Jorge Mateo replaced Myers in right field on Tuesday night. He and Jurickson Profar would be the likeliest replacements in the event Myers misses any further time.
