Jon Heyman of FanRag Sports reports that Wil Myers would be willing to move from first base to the outfield if the Padres were able to land Eric Hosmer in free agency.
Heyman says Myers was recently approached about the idea by Padres management and didn't hesitate in stating his willingness to change positions. San Diego has been one of the few teams that have been mentioned as suitors for Hosmer early on, and this seems to confirm their seriousness in that pursuit. Myers spent the first three years of his career playing primarily in the outfield, so this wouldn't be a huge undertaking for him. Wed, Dec 6, 2017 04:05:00 PM

Wil Myers went 2-for-4 and slugged a solo home run in a win over the Giants on Saturday.

His bomb off reliever Reyes Moronta stood as the only Padres tally until they pulled off a game-winning rally in the ninth inning. The longball was his 30th of the season to set a new career high. His .243 batting average and 74 RBI won't please his fantasy owners but his 20 stolen bases will.

Myers is pretty much the only Padre hitting at the moment; he's at .354 with four homers in 13 games this month. His 28th homer matches his 2016 total in 79 fewer at-bats. Still, even with this recent surge, his average and OBP remain down a bit from where he was in 2016.

Wil Myers went 2-for-5 with a stolen base in Saturday's loss to the Marlins.

Myers had a pair of singles and didn't score or drive in a run in the low-scoring affair. He did swipe his 16th base of the season, giving him a very real chance at hitting 20 steals for two straight years while manning first base. The two hits broke the 26-year-old out of an 0-for-19 slump, so perhaps this is the start of an upswing for Myers. He's slashing .234/.323/.446 on the year.

The slumping Wil Myers is out of the lineup Thursday for the sixth time this season.

Myers is 0-for-20 in his last five games, dropping his average to .234. Yangervis Solarte is playing first base tonight.

RotoGrinders.com Daily Slant: Myers' absence makes this draw even stronger for Carlos Martinez, who has a far superior match-up to slate favorite Chris Sale. Martinez is flat out dominant against right-handed bats, but he'll have to face just two lefties in the Padres order, one of whom has next to no pop at the big league level. The STL righty also owns a solid 29.3 K% against RHP, something the Padres should help boost even further.
