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.

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.

According to Jon Heyman of FanRag Sports, the Padres are "open" to trading Wil Myers.

Myers is well on his way to a breakout season at age 25 and he is under contractual control with San Diego through 2019, but Heyman says the Padres are "willing to talk about just about anyone" as they attempt another aggressive organizational rebuild under general manager A.J. Preller. Myers, an outfielder turned first baseman, is sitting on a .281/.321/.504 batting line, 14 home runs, and 39 RBI through 65 games this season with the last-place Friars.

Wil Myers went 1-for-3 with a solo home run in Monday's loss to the Marlins.

Myers socked a solo home run off Wei-Yin Chen in the first inning for his lone hit of the game. The 25-year-old outfielder has been wielding a ridiculously hot bat of late and has crunched six home runs in his last 10 games. For the season as a whole, he is hitting .287/.328/.514 with 14 homers and 38 RBI over 247 at-bats.
Jun 14 - 2:23 AM

Wil Myers hit a three-run homer off Jake McGee in the top of the ninth to lead the Padres to a 7-5 win over the Rockies on Friday.

A couple of former Rays teammates right there. Myers also had a sac fly and a walk in the game. After a rough May, he's hit .459 with six homers and 15 RBI in nine games so far in July.
Jun 11 - 12:24 AM

Wil Myers went 2-for-4 with a pair of solo home runs in Wednesday's 4-2 loss to the Braves.

Myers burned Braves starter Julio Teheran for both homers, bashing one in the fourth inning and one in the sixth inning. The two dingers pushed his overall home run tally to 12. The 2016 campaign has been a kind one for fantasy owners to this point, as he is slashing .294/.327/.506 with the dozen long balls and 33 RBI across 331-at bats.
Jun 8 - 6:59 PM

Wil Myers hit a walk-off RBI single to close out Tuesday's 4-3 win over the Braves.

The Padres trailed 3-2 entering the ninth inning, but Derek Norris tied up matters with a solo home run. Following a bit of sloppiness on the part of Braves closer Arodys Vizcaino to put runners on second and third with one out, Myers put an end to the whole affair. The single was his second of the evening and he finished 2-for-4. With a .287/.321/.478 triple-slash and 10 homers and 31 RBI over 227 at-bats, the 25-year-old is well on his way to posting a career year.
Jun 8 - 1:46 AM

Wil Myers clubbed his 10th home run of the season as the Padres fell to the Rockies on Sunday night.

Myers got the Padres on the board with an RBI double in the fourth inning, then swatted a solo homer off of Jon Gray in the sixth. With his 2-for-4 night, Myers is now slashing .283/.315/.480 with 10 homers, 30 RBI and six stolen bases on the season.
Jun 6 - 12:12 AM

Wil Myers went 3-for-4 with a double and a solo home run on Saturday to lead the Padres over the Rockies.

The home run was his ninth of the season. He is on pace for around 25 homers, 85-90 runs, 85-90 RBI and 15-20 stolen bases for a full season. The problem is Myers has never played more than 88 games in a year. Myers is the sort of player who can be above-average in all five standard roto categories without being a standout in any one category. The 25 year old has endured numerous injuries and has yet to realize his full potential on the field for any length of time. Myers' blazing .853 OPS in April turned into a frozen .597 OPS in May, but he is off to a very hot start to the month of June.

May 25 - 1:31 PM

Wil Myers (forearm) is not expected to play Wednesday.

Myers experienced some discomfort in his left forearm Monday while picking up a baseball and the Padres want to play it safe so that this doesn't turn into another extended absence. Including a scheduled team off day Thursday, the 25-year-old first baseman can get three straight days of rest. He's slashing just .218/.227/.345 with one walk and 17 strikeouts in 87 at-bats this month.
May 25 - 9:28 AM

Wil Myers said his absence Tuesday was scheduled.

There was some worry about a setback after Myers was spotted with a wrap on his left wrist following Monday's loss to the Giants.

Myers should return to action Wednesday for the Padres' series finale in San Francisco.

Wil Myers is not in the Padres' starting lineup Tuesday versus Giants right-hander Jeff Samardzija.

AJ Cassavell of MLB.com notes that Myers had his troublesome left wrist wrapped following Monday's walkoff loss in San Francisco. The absence Tuesday night could be related. Myers got off to a nice start this season, but he's hitting just .218/.227/.345 with one walk and 17 strikeouts over 87 at-bats in May.
