Padres OF Wil Myers OK with playing some first base
by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com

Padres outfielder Wil Myers played three innings at first base during Sunday's spring game against the Mariners in preparation for playing at first base at times during the regular season, per U-T San Diego.

"I consider myself a center fielder first," Myers said Monday morning, "but if they ever need me over there, I'd definitely be willing to go over there and take ground balls and do whatever they need me to do.

"I like it a lot. Any time you can try something new, get out of the outfield and do something new, it's going to be fun."

by Brandon Wise | CBSSports.com

Padres outfielder Wil Myers is taking limited practice time at first base during workouts, manager Bub Black said Sunday according to MLB.com.

Padres' Wil Myers smacks opposite-field home run Saturday
by R.J. White | CBSSports.com

Padres outfielder Wil Myers has shown an ability to drive the ball to all fields in his career and did so again Saturday, smacking a home run to right field in his team's 7-6 win over the Giants.

"A lot of my home runs the other way are balls on the outer half. I hear a lot of people say I can't use the other side of the plate, but I feel I do a pretty good job of it," Myers said, per MLB.com. "… Catch a ball deep and put a pretty good swing on it."

Myers also indicated he's still getting used to facing live pitching in game situations.

"My eyes are still a little slow. But I was able to get a fastball over the plate and put a good swing on it," Myers said. "Early in camp, my eyes have to focus on the ball more. I haven't seen 93, 94 [mph] in six months. It will come around."

The Padres acquired Myers this offseason after he hit .222/.294/.320 with six home runs, 35 RBI and six stolen bases in 325 at-bats last season.

Padres' Wil Myers hoping to prove the doubters wrong
by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com

Padres outfielder Wil Myers is hoping he can prove the doubters wrong this season, according to MLB.com.

Myers not only has a lot to prove at the plate, but he also wants to show that he can handle his new defensive position. "Going into this year, I have a lot of doubters out there. I not only want to prove them wrong but prove to myself that I can play a good center field," Myers said.

He continued, "I've played a lot there in the minor leagues. And hearing everyone say, 'I don't think he can play center field,' is going to motivate me to play a great center field."

Manager Bud Black seems encouraged by Myers' defensive play thus far. "He's looking good, good angles, good routes, good hands, athletic," Black said. "His speed is fine. His strides look good tracking fly balls. He's an athletic guy. From what we've seen so far [it's been] all good."

The 24-year-old hit .222/.294/.320 over 325 at-bats last season.

Wil Myers among the candidates to hit leadoff for Padres
by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com

The Padres don't have a prototypical leadoff hitter on their 40-man roster, so manager Bud Black is already trying to pare down the potential candidates he does have at his disposal, per U-T San Diego.

Yangervis Solarte, Will Venable, Cameron Maybin and Wil Myers -- let’s start there,” Black said of the options at the top of his list.

However, of that list of players, Myers is the only one assured of playing every day. He has a career .324 on-base percentage.
