November 10, 2021
Meyers won't be healthy for Opening Day 2022 after undergoing surgery Wednesday to repair a torn labrum in his left shoulder, Chandler Rome of the Houston Chronicle reports.
ANALYSIS
Meyers suffered the injury during the ALDS and initially attempted to play through the issue before eventually being removed from the playoff roster. The 25-year-old had his first taste of big-league action in 2021 and hit .260/.323/.438 with six homers, 28 RBI, 22 runs and three stolen bases in 49 games. Myers figured to have a chance at securing the starting job in center field during spring training, but he now won't be ready for the start of the 2022 campaign while going through his rehab work.
