According to Dennis Lin of the San Diego Union-Tribune, the Padres and Wil Myers have mutual interest in a contract extension.

The two sides haven't had any talks yet, but Myers said that he loves San Diego (who wouldn't?) and Padres general manager A.J. Preller indicates that they could pursue something over the winter. "Not in the second half but definitely in the offseason, we want to look at it and say, 'OK, is there something here we want to present to make him a long-term Padre?'" Preller said. "I think we'll obviously talk about it with the front-office group and ownership; it's an ownership decision, too. But I think his play in the first half has led to a point where that's a discussion, something to start considering, and see where it goes." Myers has enjoyed a breakout season during his second year with the Padres and will be arbitration-eligible for the first time this winter. Still just 25 years old, he could be a core piece for rebuilding San Diego.

The Padres will not consider trading Wil Myers, according to Bill Shaikin of the Los Angeles Times.

The Padres have already traded away Fernando Rodney and James Shields but it looks like Myers is staying put. Finally healthy, the former AL Rookie of the Year has put together a breakout season for the Friars with 19 HR, 60 RBI, 15 steals and a .292 average. While Myers appears to be safe, the Padres could shop Drew Pomeranz before the August 1 trade deadline.
Jul 9 - 7:47 PM

Wil Myers went 1-for-2 with a three-run homer, a steal and three walks in Tuesday's 11-7 loss to the Orioles.

Myers launched his three-run homer in the seventh inning. He has been nothing short of phenomenal in the month of June, swatting 11 homers and driving 31 runs this month alone. For the season as a whole, he is slashing .284/.343/.530 with 18 homers, 53 RBI and 11 steals across 296 at-bats.

Wil Myers went 0-for-4 with a strikeout in Sunday's loss to the Reds.

The Padres -- as a team -- managed just five singles in the shutout loss. With the 0-for-4 under his belt, Myers is hitting .283/.337/.522 with 17 homers, 50 RBI and 10 steals over 293 at-bats. The 10 steals are already the most he has recorded in a season.
Jun 26 - 4:03 PM

Wil Myers went 3-for-5 with a home run and five RBI on Friday night versus the Reds.

The home run was his 17th. He has a .289 batting average to go with 49 runs, 50 RBI and 10 stolen bases. After three injury-plagued seasons, the 25-year-old Myers is finally turning into the fantasy stud we all expected when he was a prospect. He may surpass his career high of 335 at-bats before the All Star break.
Jun 24 - 11:49 PM

Wil Myers cranked his 16th home run as part of a 3-for-4 day at the plate with three RBI, two runs scored and a stolen base in the Padres' 7-3 come-from-behind victory over the Nationals on Saturday.

In addition to the first-inning homer, Myers had a key double in the Padres' six-run eighth inning rally. The young outfielder is finally healthy this year and it shows. He now rocks a .291/.333/.537 line with 16 longballs, 45 runs, 44 RBI and nine stolen bases. He is a strong contributor in all five fantasy scoring categories.
Jun 19 - 2:01 AM

Wil Myers went 2-for-3 with a solo home run and a double in Thursday's loss to the Nationals.

Myers has been a man on fire this month. His fifth-inning homer off Tanner Roark was his fifth dinger in his last 10 games. The 25-year-old has always had the talent to perform at a high level and we are finally starting to see his development lead to All-Star-worthy production. Overall, Myers is slashing a robust .286/.330/.521 with 15 homers, 40 RBI and eight steals over 259 at-bats.
Jun 17 - 1:31 AM

According to Jon Heyman of FanRag Sports, the Padres are "open" to trading Wil Myers.

Myers is well on his way to a breakout season at age 25 and he is under contractual control with San Diego through 2019, but Heyman says the Padres are "willing to talk about just about anyone" as they attempt another aggressive organizational rebuild under general manager A.J. Preller. Myers, an outfielder turned first baseman, is sitting on a .281/.321/.504 batting line, 14 home runs, and 39 RBI through 65 games this season with the last-place Friars.
Jun 16 - 11:55 AM

Wil Myers went 1-for-3 with a solo home run in Monday's loss to the Marlins.

Myers socked a solo home run off Wei-Yin Chen in the first inning for his lone hit of the game. The 25-year-old outfielder has been wielding a ridiculously hot bat of late and has crunched six home runs in his last 10 games. For the season as a whole, he is hitting .287/.328/.514 with 14 homers and 38 RBI over 247 at-bats.
Jun 14 - 2:23 AM

Wil Myers hit a three-run homer off Jake McGee in the top of the ninth to lead the Padres to a 7-5 win over the Rockies on Friday.

A couple of former Rays teammates right there. Myers also had a sac fly and a walk in the game. After a rough May, he's hit .459 with six homers and 15 RBI in nine games so far in July.
Jun 11 - 12:24 AM

Wil Myers went 2-for-4 with a pair of solo home runs in Wednesday's 4-2 loss to the Braves.

Myers burned Braves starter Julio Teheran for both homers, bashing one in the fourth inning and one in the sixth inning. The two dingers pushed his overall home run tally to 12. The 2016 campaign has been a kind one for fantasy owners to this point, as he is slashing .294/.327/.506 with the dozen long balls and 33 RBI across 331-at bats.
Jun 8 - 6:59 PM

Wil Myers hit a walk-off RBI single to close out Tuesday's 4-3 win over the Braves.

The Padres trailed 3-2 entering the ninth inning, but Derek Norris tied up matters with a solo home run. Following a bit of sloppiness on the part of Braves closer Arodys Vizcaino to put runners on second and third with one out, Myers put an end to the whole affair. The single was his second of the evening and he finished 2-for-4. With a .287/.321/.478 triple-slash and 10 homers and 31 RBI over 227 at-bats, the 25-year-old is well on his way to posting a career year.
Jun 8 - 1:46 AM

Wil Myers clubbed his 10th home run of the season as the Padres fell to the Rockies on Sunday night.

Myers got the Padres on the board with an RBI double in the fourth inning, then swatted a solo homer off of Jon Gray in the sixth. With his 2-for-4 night, Myers is now slashing .283/.315/.480 with 10 homers, 30 RBI and six stolen bases on the season.
Jun 6 - 12:12 AM

Wil Myers went 3-for-4 with a double and a solo home run on Saturday to lead the Padres over the Rockies.

The home run was his ninth of the season. He is on pace for around 25 homers, 85-90 runs, 85-90 RBI and 15-20 stolen bases for a full season. The problem is Myers has never played more than 88 games in a year. Myers is the sort of player who can be above-average in all five standard roto categories without being a standout in any one category. The 25 year old has endured numerous injuries and has yet to realize his full potential on the field for any length of time. Myers' blazing .853 OPS in April turned into a frozen .597 OPS in May, but he is off to a very hot start to the month of June.
