Padres' Wil Myers: Eyeing Friday return

Myers (nose) expects to return to the starting lineup Friday after drawing a walk as a pinch hitter Thursday against the Rockies, MLB.com's AJ Cassavell reports.

Myers wasn't in the starting nine for the Padres' last two contests after taking a grounder off the nose during Wednesday's pre-game routine. The 27-year-old's presence off the bench Thursday helps back his confidence that he will return to the lineup against the Dodgers on Friday. Myers has started his last seven games at third base, a role he will continue to fill down the stretch.
