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

Wil Myers went 2-for-3 with a solo home run in Thursday's win over the Diamondbacks.

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. After posting a breakout 2016 season, Myers is off to a brilliant start in 2017, working to a .373/.387/.686 triple-slash with 11 RBI and 11 runs scored over 67 at-bats.

Wil Myers went 2-for-3 with an RBI double in Wednesday's win over the Rockies.

Myers doubled home Yangervis Solarte in the first inning. The two-bagger was his fourth of the embryonic season. He has been among the hottest hitters in the game early on, having already picked up the four doubles, plus three home runs, nine RBI and two triples.
Apr 12 - 6:22 PM

Wil Myers hit for the cycle Monday in the Padres' 5-3 win over the Rockies.

After 36 years without one before Matt Kemp finally pulled off the feat in 2015, the Padres have their second cycle in three seasons. Myers got the triple last, pounding the worst slider Carlos Estevez has ever thrown into the gap in left-center; it was a no-doubt triple off the bat. Myers has three homers and three doubles on the young season. The triple was his sixth in 400 career games.
Apr 11 - 12:20 AM

Wil Myers went 2-for-5 with a two-run home run in Sunday's loss to the Giants.

Myers took a Johnny Cueto offering for a ride in the sixth inning. The blast was his second of the season. He has been hot in the early going, having notched four multi-hit games through the first seven contests played.
Apr 9 - 8:40 PM

Wil Myers took a Brandon McCarthy curveball out to right-center for his first homer of the year Thursday.

Even though he's fanned five times in 16 plate appearances, Myers is hitting .313 after four games.
Apr 6 - 6:43 PM

Wil Myers went 2-for-4 with a double in Wednesday's loss to the Dodgers.

Another ugly offensive showing from the Padres, who managed a mere three hits in the ballgame. Myers had two of those, but nothing came of them in terms of runs scored. After cracking 28 home runs and swiping 28 bases in 2016, Myers is trying for the 40-40 club this season. That lofty mark is not completely out of the realm of possibility, but fantasy owners will probably have to settle for less Herculean marks when all is said and done.
Apr 6 - 1:30 AM

Wil Myers stayed hot on Monday by slugging a two-run homer against the Mariners.

It was his third homer of the spring. While the Padres could be the worst team in the majors this year, Myers appears primed for another big season. He's hitting .385/.492/.692 with three homers and three steals over 20 games during Cactus League action. He’s aiming for a 40-40 season, but fantasy owners would be thrilled with anything close to that.
Mar 27 - 8:55 PM

Wil Myers went 2-for-3 with a triple and a run scored Friday against the Rangers in Cactus League action.

Myers was the big bright spot for the Padres during their last-place finish in 2016 and he’s poised to play a similar role this year. The 26-year-old is hitting .370 (17-for-46) with a 1.112 OPS over 18 games this spring.
Mar 24 - 7:17 PM

Wil Myers is playing first base Friday after leaving Thursday's game with neck tightness.

Myers said afterwards that he had just had a neck spasm.
Mar 17 - 3:15 PM

Wil Myers' neck injury was a muscle spasm.

Myers had to come out of Thursday's Cactus League game with what was thought to be neck stiffness but was actually a spasm. Manager Andy Green said the spasm has been "resolved" and doesn't imagine it being an issue going forward. "The report I got was he's completely fine," said Green. Myers might not miss any time.
Mar 16 - 8:15 PM

Wil Myers left Thursday's Cactus League game against the Royals with neck tightness.

Dusty Coleman pinch-ran for Myers after he reached on a fielding error during the fourth inning. Coleman also took his place at first base. Myers was hitless in his two plate appearances before exiting. It sounds like his departure was probably precautionary, but it's something to keep an eye on. Myers has had an excellent spring, hitting .370 over 27 Cactus League at-bats.
Mar 16 - 6:12 PM

Wil Myers went 2-for-3 with a double and an RBI single in Saturday's Cactus League loss to the Brewers.

Myers' double off Trevor Cahill was his first of the spring. He is looking to build on a 2016 season in which he hit .259/.336/.46 with 28 homers, 99 runs scored, 94 RBI and 28 steals in 157 games played. Injury had previously prevented him from playing in more than 90 games.
Mar 11 - 7:19 PM

Wil Myers went 2-for-2 with a home run in a loss to the Brewers on Thursday.

He went deep of Zach Davies in the third inning. It was his second home run in what has been a solid Cactus League for Myers so far. He has a .412 batting average and 1.389 OPS in 17 at-bats. Playing his first full injury-free campaign in 2016, he turned in a .259/.336/.461 slash line with 28 home runs, 99 runs scored, 94 RBI and 28 stolen bases. That makes him an upper-echelon fantasy hitter.
Mar 9 - 8:11 PM

Wil Myers pounded his first home run of the spring Wednesday in the Padres' Cactus League win over the Athletics.

Myers teed off on Chris Smith by slamming a fourth-inning solo blast to left-center field. He was hitless in his other two at-bats. Myers somehow survived the Padres’ fire sale last season and even earned himself a six-year extension along the way. The 26-year-old offers an extremely rare power/speed combo at the first base position. If you’re thinking about drafting a Padre in fantasy, he’s the one.
