Wil Myers (wrist) said Tuesday that he feels "a lot stronger" than he ever has.
Myers underwent left wrist surgery back in June and dealt with some lingering soreness during the second half, but he's finally feeling some improvement with the benefit of the offseason. The former top prospect batted .253 with eight home runs and a .763 OPS over 253 plate appearances during his first season with San Diego. He would prefer to play first base in 2016, but said he's open to playing wherever the Padres need him. Wed, Dec 2, 2015 08:34:00 AM
