SAN DIEGO (AP) A person with knowledge of the deal says the San Diego Padres have acquired outfielder Wil Myers from the Tampa Bay Rays.

Myers was the AL Rookie of the Year in 2013, when he hit .293 with 13 homers with 53 RBIs 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 the person 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.
