Padres assistant general manager Fred Uhlman Jr. commented on Myers' injury on July 28, via Dennis Lin of the San Diego Union-Tribune:
Basically, he just has some general soreness that was to be expected with his injury and the procedure. He’s back in San Diego. He’s going to continue his therapy without hitting for the next five or six days. And then we’ll re-evaluate him Sunday or Monday to see where he is, but there was nothing negative from the exam.
On July 23, Jeff Sanders of the San Diego Union-Tribune provided Myers comments about his injury history:
Having two wrist injuries that I’ve rushed back from, I know what it takes to get back from those experiences. I definitely want to make sure I take it slow and I’m ready to come back and help the team compete. Because I know if I come back, if it's a week or even a day too soon, I won’t be at the level that I can be. I want to make sure I’m right when I come back.
