Wil Myers racked up three steals Wednesday in the Padres’ win over the Phillies.

He reached base four times for the Friars, collecting a single, a double and two walks. Myers accomplished an incredibly rare feat in the fourth inning when he singled, stole second, stole third and later came home on a double steal. Myers hasn’t hit for a high average this year (.240) but his speed/power combo still makes him a valuable fantasy contributor.
Aug 16 - 9:04 PM

Wil Myers finished 2-for-4 with a solo home run in Saturday's 6-3 loss on the road against the Dodgers.

Myers picks up homers in bunches, and his recent performance has been no exception. He has managed three homers with four RBI over the past three outings. His average has tailed off quite a bit but he has already equaled his home run total from the month of July.
Aug 13 - 4:17 AM

Wil Myers belted a two-run dinger in a loss to the Reds on Wednesday.

Myers and Manuel Margot both hit homers off starter Asher Wojciechowski in the sixth inning. The 26-year-old Myers is on pace to set a new career high in home runs but his batting average is trending in the wrong direction. He has a .238/.320/.456 slash line with 22 home runs and 55 RBI in 108 games. The slugger's 11 stolen bases add some extra fantasy value.
Aug 9 - 11:52 PM

Wil Myers went 2-for-3 with a home run and three RBI during a 5-2 win over the Pirates on Saturday.

He laced an RBI double in the third inning, then drilled a two-run liner over the center field wall in the fifth. Myers' batting average is a bit low at .243 but he makes up for it with 21 home runs and 53 RBI. He's swiped 10 bags as well.
Aug 6 - 12:07 AM

Wil Myers went 0-for-4 with two strikeouts in Wednesday's loss to the Twins.

The Padres managed just four hits as a team against Ervin Santana, so Myers was far from alone in his futility. He has been scuffling at the dish since the All-Star break and is currently stuck in a little 0-for-10 rut. Overall, Myers is hitting .242/.321/.455 with 20 homers, 49 RBI and 10 steals in 102 games played.
Aug 2 - 6:19 PM

Padres manager Andy Green plans to sit Wil Myers Sunday against the Pirates.

It will be Myers' second straight absence after also getting a breather on Saturday. Myers has struggled mightily since the All-Star break and is among the league leaders in strikeouts. Green is hoping the break will give Myers a chance to "reboot." Myers should be back after the Padres' off day on Monday.
Jul 29 - 8:09 PM

Wil Myers is not in the Padres' lineup Saturday against the Pirates.

Myers has appeared in 100 of 103 games this season including all 15 since the All-Star break. Needless to say, he was due for a rest. Jose Pirela will fill in at first base and bat third against Pirates hurler Ivan Nova. Myers has hit only .196 over 56 second half at-bats, though four of his 11 hits in that span have been home runs.
Jul 29 - 5:51 PM

Wil Myers went 1-for-4 with a solo home run and two runs scored in Sunday's win over the Giants.

Myers took a Ty Blach offering for a 423-foot ride in the first inning. He has been in a groove at the plate of late, having cracked homers in three consecutive contests and four of his last six games. Overall, the 26-year-old first baseman is slashing .252/.333/.476 with 20 homers, 47 RBI and 10 steals. He is eight home runs shy of tying his career-best 28, set during his breakout 2016 season.
Jul 23 - 7:28 PM

Wil Myers cracked a solo home run and finished the day 1-for-5 in Saturday's extra-inning loss to the Giants.

He went yard off starter Matt Moore to get the Padres on the board in the fourth inning. It was his 19th longball of the year. He hit 28 of them last year and will likely end up near that number again. The well-rounded, five-category producer is slashing .252/.332/.471 with 46 RBI, 51 runs scored and 10 stolen bases.
Jul 22 - 8:28 PM

Wil Myers went 0-for-5 and struck out four times against the Rockies at Coors Field on Monday.

24 hits and 15 runs at Coors tonight, yet Myers was a zero again. He's gone 12 straight games without driving in a run, and his OPS stands at .781, the lowest it's been since early April. He's also fanned 118 times in 89 games. Last year, he finished at 160 strikeouts in 157 games. It doesn't seem like a good sign.
Jul 18 - 12:10 AM

Wil Myers went 3-for-4 with a stolen base in a win over the Phillies on Friday.

Myers got his first look batting leadoff this year, and he responded with, subjectively, his best game in a while. He doubled among his three hits, and the 26-year-old also stole his 10th base of the season in the win. He's got some real-world flaws, but Myers is proving to once again be a fantasy asset, batting a passable .257/.331/.473 with 16 homers, 42 RBI, 44 runs scored and those 10 steals through 83 games.
Jul 8 - 1:20 AM

Wil Myers wore the Golden Sombrero on Tuesday, striking out in all four of his trips to the plate.

Not only that, but Myers has now whiffed in eight straight plate appearances. His strikeout percentage for the season is at 30.4 percent, which is a notable jump from last year's 23.7 percent mark.
Jul 4 - 10:18 PM

Wil Myers is not in the Padres' lineup Sunday.

Austin Hedges isn't starting, either, as the Padres' already-weak lineup looks laughable versus Kenta Maeda and the Dodgers. Hector Sanchez is at first base and Luis Torrens is catching.

Wil Myers struck out in all three of his at-bats Saturday against the Dodgers, dropping his season average to .258.

Myers has now struck out 100 times across 299 at-bats. He looked to be turning the corner a bit in the middle of June, but he is back to his free-swinging ways. He has at least two strikeouts in three of his past four outings while posting just three extra-base hits (one double, two home runs) over the past 12 games.
