Wil Myers was used at second base for one batter, ala Anthony Rizzo, in Friday's game against the Tigers.
Like Rizzo has been several times this season, Myers moved to second base in a bunt situation and then moved back to first afterwards. It counts as a position change, and it's the first time he's played second base in his career. He could get eventually get eligibility in five-game leagues if manager Andy Green likes how it worked out tonight. Jun 24 - 1:00 AM

Myers struggled to wrap up May and kick off the month of June. However, the veteran slugger is showing signs of heating up again, going 6-for-19 (.316) with a double, three runs scored and two RBI over the past five outings. He is capable of so much more, but it's a start and he is trending in the right direction again.

While he is hitting an acceptable .260/.310/.493 with 12 homers and 31 RBI on the season, his bat has gone almost completely silent in the power department -- Myers has socked just one home run since May 16.
Jun 4 - 8:20 PM

The Padres had been shut down for the majority of the afternoon by Giants' starter Ty Blach, but they broke through and tied the game with a two-run shot by Hector Sanchez off of Mark Melancon in the ninth. That set the stage for Myers to deliver in the 12th. He had been 0-for-5 on the day before crushing a George Kontos offering into the seats in left field. Myers is off to another impressive start at the dish, slashing .310/.325/.593 with seven homers, 20 RBI and two stolen bases through the first month of the season.

He has struck out 16 times over the past eight outings, but he continues to roll up big numbers to make that a non-issue.

Wil Myers hit a three-run homer in a losing cause Monday against the Diamondbacks.

Myers has a hideous 22/2 K/BB ratio in 84 at-bats, but it hasn't stopped him from hitting .345 with five homers and 14 RBI. Like some other hitters, he's going for more flyballs than usual, with great success so far. That average should come way down, though.
Apr 25 - 2:02 AM

Myers connected for a long solo home run off Patrick Corbin with two outs in the first inning. The dinger was his fourth of the month.
