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.

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.

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.
Aug 14 - 12:10 AM

Wil Myers went 3-for-4 with his 21st homer and his 23rd double Friday against the Phillies.

It was his 15th homer at Petco Park this year, but then, this isn't the same Petco Park that so frustrated hitters a few years back. Myers had a quiet July, hitting .170 with one homer in the first 15 games after the All-Star break, but he's 8-for-16 so far in August.
Aug 6 - 1:57 AM

Wil Myers showed off his speed and exceptional base-running skills on Sunday, deftly swiping home plate while Homer Bailey had his back turned in the sixth inning.

Bailey was disgusted with himself after issuing a walk and turned to walk around the mound after the catcher had delivered the ball back, and Myers sprinted home easily without a throw. He has been an absolute monster for the Padres and fantasy owners alike, slashing .270/.348/.487 with 20 homers, 64 RBI and 19 stolen bases on the season.
Jul 31 - 7:55 PM

Wil Myers finished 2-for-3 with a double and a walk in Friday night's shutout loss to the Reds.

Myers is hitting .274/.348/.494 with 20 home runs, 66 runs, 63 RBI and 17 stolen bases. The steals are the big surprise as he has stolen more bags this year than he accumulated in his three-year career prior to this season.
Jul 30 - 2:13 AM

Wil Myers went 2-for-3 with a homer, a walk and two runs scored Friday against the Giants.

Myers has 13 homers in 37 games since the beginning of June. He hit seven in 51 games over the first two months of the season.
Jul 16 - 1:30 AM

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.
Jul 15 - 11:49 PM

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.
Jun 29 - 2:10 AM

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.
