THE SAN DIEGO Padres have acquired outfielder Wil Myers from the Tampa Bay Rays, according to multiple reports. Myers was the AL Rookie of the Year in 2013, when he hit .293 with 13 homers with 53 RBI with Tampa Bay. But he was limited to 87 games this year due to a right wrist injury.

There were multiple reports that Washington also was involved in the deal, but a source would not confirm the Nationals' involvement to the Associated Press.

San Diego also receives catcher Ryan Hanigan and minor league pitchers Jose Castillo and Gerardo Reyes in the trade, with catcher Rene Rivera moving from the Padres to Tampa Bay.

The person spoke to the Associated Press on condition of anonymity because the trade had not been announced.


* New Atlanta outfielder Nick Markakis underwent surgery to repair a herniated disk in his neck. The Braves said Markakis should be able to resume baseball activities before spring training in late February, though the expected 8-week recovery period leaves little room for setbacks.

The 31-year-old was diagnosed with the condition before the 2013 season with the Orioles. He left to sign a $44 million, 4-year contract with the Braves.

* The Chicago Cubs traded outfielder Justin Ruggiano to Seattle for minor league pitcher Matt Brazis.

* A person with knowledge of the negotiations said free agent reliever Sergio Romo is closing in on a new contract with the San Francisco Giants.

* Baltimore Orioles manager Buck Showalter said Chris Davis will be allowed to use Adderall next season after the first baseman received a 25-game suspension this year for using the drug.

* Cleveland second baseman Jason Kipnis underwent surgery to repair a damaged tendon in his left ring finger, an injury he sustained while working out with weights in Chicago. Indians head trainer James Quinlan expects Kipnis to be on the field when spring training opens.
