Myers is not in the lineup Saturday against the Diamondbacks. Myers will sit after making eight straight starts and batting .281 with an .868 OPS over that stretch. Cory Spangenberg will slide over to third base in his absence, with Freddy Galvis moving to second base and Javy Guerra entering the lineup at shortstop.
Myers went 1-for-5 with a double, a walk and a pair of runs scored in Tuesday's 5-4 loss to the Giants. Myers doubled for the third consecutive game and now has five extra-base hits over his last six starts following a slow start to September. The 27-year-old did commit his sixth error since taking over as the Friars' primary third baseman Aug. 13, but the club appears committed to the position change.
Myers went 1-for-4 with a two-run home run and two strikeouts in Wednesday's win over the Giants. Myers put the finishing touches on a five-run second inning, blasting his 11th home run of the season. The 27-year-old has been in a prolonged struggle since returning from the disabled list in mid-August, slashing just .215/.300/.346 with two home runs over 107 at-bats in that span.
Myers is not in the lineup Tuesday against the Giants. Myers will get what appears to be a routine day off following a string of six straight starts. The 27-year-old hit .261/.346/.391 with two RBI and two stolen bases over those starts. Cory Spangenberg is set to cover the hot corner in place of Myers.
Myers went 2-for-4 with a double, a stolen base and an RBI in Tuesday's 2-1 win over the Mariners. Myers' ninth-inning RBI double off Edwin Diaz proved to be the difference in Tuesday's contest. The 27-year-old made his 22nd start at third base, which will replace his status as a first baseman (just two starts this year) while he maintains outfield eligibility for the 2019 campaign.
