Myers back with Rays

Tampa Bay Rays outfielder Wil Myers returned from the 60-day disabled list Wednesday after sitting out close to three months of the season with a broken right wrist.

The 2013 American League Rookie of the Year was in the lineup for Wednesday night's game against the Detroit Tigers. To make room on the roster, the Rays sent designated hitter Vince Belnome to Triple-A.

The 23-year-old Myers was injured May 30 during an outfield collision with Desmond Jennings while diving for a ball. Myers was batting .227 with five home runs for the Rays at the time of the injury.

Myers played in seven minor league games on a rehab assignment and had six hits in 24 at-bats with two home runs.

Belnome saw action in four games for the Rays earlier this season and went 1-for-10 at the plate with three walks.
