Myers apologises to Green after criticising manager

September 4 2018 5:02 AM

San Diego Padres star Wil Myers apologised to manager Andy Green after he was heard criticising him on a live stream of Fortnite.

In a since deleted video, Myers' voice was heard in the background while Padres minor-leaguer Carlos Asuaje was streaming the popular video game.

"The Padres are doing cutoff and relays tomorrow at 3 o'clock – in September, dude," Myers was heard saying, according to MLB.com

"Oh my god. It's so miserable, man. It's insane. Andy could not be any worse than he is right now."

Asuaje then informed Myers he was live streaming the game.

Myers apologised to his manager on Monday, saying they were comments he should not have made.

"I love Andy, and I love playing for him," Myers said (via MLB.com). "He's a guy that has taught me a lot in this game. At times, you get into a mood where you get frustrated, no matter what's going on with a team or individually, and you say some things you shouldn't say in a conversation that you think's private.

"The reality is, now we're in 2018. I'm incredibly sorry, obviously to Andy, to my team-mates, to the fans. This is a distraction we don't need."

Myers, who has been with San Diego since 2015, is slashing .254/.310/.462 with 10 home runs and 31 RBIs in 61 games this season.

The Padres entered play Monday in last place of the National League West with a 54-85 record.
