October 19, 2021
Meyers (shoulder) was scratched from the lineup for Game 4 of the ALCS against Boston on Tuesday, Chandler Rome of the Houston Chronicle reports.
ANALYSIS
Meyers was originally listed as the Astros' starting center fielder and was lined up to make his ALCS debut, having missed the first three games of the series after hurting his shoulder at the end of the ALDS. Instead, it will be Chas McCormick manning the position. It's not clear if Meyers suffered a setback or if he's simply been deemed not quite ready.
