According to Ken Rosenthal of Fox Sports, for the Padres to trade Wil Myers they would have to be "blown away" by an offer.
Myers survived the team's barrage of trades this summer and now the Padres are looking to make him their franchise cornerstone. The two sides have begun extension talks, though no deal is imminent. Myers had his best season this year, hitting .259 with 28 HR, 94 RBI and 28 steals. Most of those were career-highs. Nov 19 - 9:07 PM

Date:

Padres GM A.J. Preller said that he will meet with the agent for Wil Myers later this week to discuss a possible extension.

Without an extension, Myers will be eligible for arbitration after the 2017 season. The 25-year-old slugger is coming off his best major league season to date. In 599 at-bats during the 2016 campaign, he slashed .259/.336/.461 with 28 homers, 94 RBI and 28 steals.
Nov 9 - 4:43 PM

Wil Myers went 2-for-5 with an RBI and two runs scored in Saturday's loss to the Diamondbacks.

He singled and scored in the third inning. The Padres mounted a comeback attempt in the eighth inning in which Myers stroked an RBI single and then scored on a Hunter Renfroe double. Myers has a .257 batting average with 28 home runs, 94 RBI, 98 runs scored and 28 stolen bases.
Oct 1 - 11:37 PM

Wil Myers went 2-for-3 with a three-run homer and an intentional walk in the Padres' 7-2 win over the Giants on Friday.

The homer came in the first off Albert Suarez. Myers is up to 28 homers and 91 RBI in 567 at-bats. He combined for 27 homers and 117 RBI in 885 at-bats over his first three big-league seasons.
Sep 24 - 3:06 AM

Wil Myers hit his 26th homer and walked twice Monday as the Padres edged the Diamondbacks 3-2.

Myers has been threatening to finish his "breakthrough" season with a sub-.800 OPS, but he's back up to .802 now. He's hitting .220 with seven homers and eight doubles in the second half after coming in at .286 with 19 homers and 19 doubles before the break.
Sep 20 - 1:29 AM

Wil Myers went 2-for-5 with a two-run homer Friday against the Rockies.

It was just his second home run in his last 29 games. Myers has proved to be an excellent value for fantasy owners this season by amassing 25 homers, 83 RBI, and 25 steals over 142 games, but the great majority of his production was in the first half.
Sep 17 - 1:11 AM

Wil Myers is not in Monday's lineup against the Giants.

He's presumably getting a routine day off. Yangervis Solarte will fill in at first base while Ryan Schimpf plays third. Alexi Amarista will play second base.

Wil Myers went 2-for-3 with a walk, two RBI and a run scored to help lead the Padres over the Rockies on Saturday.

He cracked a double in the second inning that scored two runners and would have plated another if the ball had not bounced over the wall. Myers' line doesn't blow you away -- .258 batting average with 24 homers, 86 runs and 79 RBI -- but when you combine that with his 25 stolen bases you have a fantasy stud. This is the first year Myers has been able to stay healthy. He has 527 at-bats after never managing more than 335 in his previous three seasons.
Sep 11 - 12:27 AM

Wil Myers drove in a run with a single in the eighth inning but that was his only hit of the game in a loss to the Dodgers on Saturday.

He has a .259 batting average with 24 homers, 83 runs scored and 76 RBI in 130 games. Myers entered the season with 16 career steals but has swiped 25 bags already this year. The steals boost an otherwise good-but-not-great package into a fantasy stud. This marks the first time Myers has been able to stay on the field for more than 88 games in a season. He is finally paying dividends for those who invested in him.
Sep 4 - 12:02 AM

Wil Myers went 2-for-4 with a two-run homer Thursday against the Braves.

He was certainly due; Myers hit just .127 with no homers and 27 strikeouts in his previous 14 games, dropping his OPS from .854 to .798. The two-run homer gave him just his third multi-RBI day in 41 games since the All-Star break.
Sep 1 - 3:18 PM

Wil Myers (illness) went 0-for-4 with two strikeouts in his return to action Tuesday.

He had been held out a couple days with a stomach virus. Myers is stuck in a dreadful offensive rut, batting just .123/.197/.200 over his last 71 plate appearances. His season OPS has dropped 62 full points in that span, from .862 to .800.
Aug 31 - 8:40 AM

Wil Myers was scratched from the Padres' lineup Sunday with a stomach virus.

He should be OK in a day or two. Yangervis Solarte will slide across the diamond to cover for Myers, with Adam Rosales entering the lineup at third base.
Aug 28 - 1:01 PM

Wil Myers went 1-for-4 with an RBI triple in Wednesday's loss to the Cubs.

Myers notched his third three-bagger of the season off Cubs starter Kyle Hendricks in the third inning. It bumped his RBI total to 73 for the season. The 25-year-old's bat has cooled after a scalding hot start to the summer, but he is still slashing .266/.343/.476 for the season as a whole. He has also bopped 23 homers.
Aug 24 - 7:58 PM

Wil Myers went 1-for-4 with an RBI single in Tuesday's loss to the Cubs.

Myers picked up an RBI base knock as part of a three-run ninth inning, but the Cubs held a 5-0 cushion to start the frame and managed to close out the win despite a few late rocky moments. For the season as a whole, the 25-year-old Myers is hitting .267/.343/.473 with 23 homers and 72 RBI. The overall numbers are fine, but he has struggled of late and entered Tuesday's game with just two hits in his last 23 at-bats.
Aug 24 - 1:28 AM

Wil Myers hit his 23rd home run of the year in Saturday's loss to the Mets.

It was going to be a loss anyway before Myers turned around a 97 mph fastball from closer Jeurys Familia to tie the game with two outs in the ninth inning. The homer was Myers' only hit in four at-bats. The 25-year-old has settled in with the Padres and is enjoying a breakout offensive year, batting .276/.354/.500 with 23 homers, 70 RBI, 77 runs and 21 stolen bases through 113 games.
