Myers is not in the lineup Wednesday against the Brewers. Myers will take a seat on the bench for Wednesday's series finale after starting the past six games and going 7-for-27 (.259) with a pair of RBI and six runs scored in that stretch. Manuel Margot is starting in center field and hitting ninth in his place.
Myers went 2-for-5 with two runs and an RBI in Sunday's 14-13 win over the Rockies. Myers was in the lineup for all four games of the wild series at Coors Field, churning out multi-hit efforts in three of the contests. The trip to the hitter's haven couldn't have come at a more convenient time for Myers, who had gone 0-for-13 over the Padres' six games before heading to Colorado. Even after the big weekend, however, Myers' season-long slash line still sits at a disappointing .230/.324/.419. His 11 home runs and nine steals have at least offset some of the damage he's doing to fantasy managers' batting average.
Myers went 3-for-4 with a double and a run scored in the Padres' 9-6 loss to the Rockies on Thursday. Myers rode the bench Wednesday, but he slotted back in the lineup for this contest and responded with a three-hit day that included his eighth double of the season. He had been in a slump with a .143 batting average in June, so hopefully this gets him going at the dish. Myers is hitting just .229 through 205 at-bats, although he has managed to crank 11 homers and swipe nine bases while posting a serviceable .331 OBP.
Myers is out of the lineup for Sunday's game against the Nationals. Manuel Margot replaces Myers in center field after the latter started in each of the Padres' last 16 games. Myers went hitless in 10 at-bats in the first three contests of the series and struck out in all four of his plate appearances in Saturday's 4-1 loss.
Myers will start in left field and serve as the Padres' leadoff hitter Wednesday against the Yankees. With primary leadoff man Greg Garcia checking out of the starting nine with southpaw James Paxton on the hill for New York, Myers will climb to the top of the order after batting no higher than fifth since May 1. Myers has struggled to get going at the plate for much of May but has demonstrated a better eye of late, slugging three home runs and logging a 5:7 BB:K over his past six starts.
