Padres' Wil Myers: New approach pays off
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Myers' strong spring was set off in part by a simplified approach at the plate, Bill Center of FriarWire reports.

Myers slashed a solid .300/.364/.733 with five RBI and a team-leading three home runs in Cactus League play. Perhaps most encouragingly, he posted an 18.1 percent strikeout rate after cratering to a career-worst 34.3 percent mark last season -- second worst among MLB hitters with at least 400 plate appearances. If Myers is able to transfer his strong spring into similar results in the regular season, it will be a much-needed boost to a Padres offense that ranked 27th in baseball in runs scored in 2019.

Padres' Wil Myers: On fire in Cactus League
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Myers is hitting .421 (8-for-19) with three home runs and four RBI in seven Cactus League contests.

After struggling to a .239 batting average last season, Myers entered 2020 as the subject of trade rumors amid talk of a platoon role. Spring training may not change any of that, but the veteran has certainly started off hot in Cactus League play. There are plenty of reasons to be skeptical about Myers' ability to sustain his early success, but he possesses a combination of power and speed that will be coveted in fantasy leagues if he is ever able to put all the pieces together.

Padres' Wil Myers: Flashes speed in loss
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Myers went 1-for-4 with a stolen base, a run scored, a triple and a walk in Saturday's 6-5 loss to the Diamondbacks.

Myers walked, stole second and scored on Manny Machado's homer in the third inning. Myers also lined his first triple of the year in the first, but he was stranded 90 feet from home. The outfielder hasn't enjoyed much success over the last two weeks, going 3-for-25 with 13 strikeouts in his last 10 games. For the year, Myers has 18 homers, 16 stolen bases, 53 RBI and 58 runs scored in 154 games.

Padres' Wil Myers: Singles as pinch hitter
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Myers (head) singled in his only at-bat as a pinch hitter against the Dodgers on Thursday.

Myers came on as a pinch hitter in the sixth inning and collected one of three Padres hits on the afternoon. Though Myers didn't remain in the game to play the field, the appearance was a positive sign after he was pulled from Wednesday's game due to feeling light-headed. The 28-year-old also suffered a fainting episode Sunday but appears to be fully recovered. According to AJ Cassavell of MLB.com, Myers passed a series of pregame tests Thursday and is expected to be available for the Padres' final series of the season in Arizona.

Padres' Wil Myers: Feeling fine
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Myers (head) said he felt fine Thursday, Kevin Acee of The San Diego Union-Tribune reports.

Myers exited Wednesday's game in the third inning as a result of feeling light-headed, just three days after he suffered a fainting episode. While he reported feeling better and was seen running on the field Thursday, his availability for Thursday's series finale against the Dodgers remains unclear.

Padres' Wil Myers: Removed after feeling light-headed
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Myers was lifted from Wednesday's game in the third inning as a result of feeling light-headed, AJ Cassavell of MLB.com reports.

Myers suffered a fainting episode Sunday, so the Padres chose to exercise caution after the 28-year-old reported feeling light-headed in the early stages of Wednesday's loss to Los Angeles. Although Myers said he felt fine after the game, his status for Thursday is unclear, according to interim manager Rod Barajas.

September 25, 2019 06:56 PM
Padres' Wil Myers: Back in action
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Myers (illness) is starting in left field and hitting cleanup Wednesday against the Dodgers.

Myers has been cleared to rejoin the starting lineup after missing a pair of games following a fainting episode. Since the start of September, Myers is slashing .303/.356/.515 with three home runs and three steals in 20 games.

Padres' Wil Myers: Sitting Tuesday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Myers (illness) is not in the lineup Tuesday against the Dodgers.

Myers suffered a fainting episode Sunday, and while he was reportedly feeling fine Monday, he'll sit for at least one game. Manuel Margot starts in center field Tuesday.

Padres' Wil Myers: Suffers fainting episode
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Myers had a vasovagal (fainting) episode Sunday night, AJ Cassavell of MLB.com reports.

The incident occurred at a charity event hosted by teammate Kirby Yates. Myers was taken by ambulance to a hospital following the episode, but his labs and tests came back normal and he reported feeling fine Monday morning. It is unclear whether Myers is expected to miss any time, but all indications are that the episode was merely a scare rather than an indication of a more serious medical issue.

Padres' Wil Myers: Battling illness
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Myers was battling an illness Sunday, Kevin Acee of The San Diego Union-Tribune reports.

Myers reportedly fell ill at a charity event Sunday night and left in an ambulance. It's not clear if the illness bothered him earlier in the day, when he went 0-for-5 with three strikeouts against Arizona. He's reportedly feeling fine Monday, and the Padres don't play until Tuesday against the Dodgers, so there's a chance that he won't wind up missing any time.

Padres' Wil Myers: Sitting again Saturday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Myers remains out of the lineup Saturday against the Diamondbacks.

Myers was playing a lot in center field there for a while, but he was on the bench for the final game of the Andy Green era, and he will remain there for the first game under interim manager Rod Barajas. Manuel Margot is making his second straight start.

September 20, 2019 06:40 PM
Padres' Wil Myers: Gets night off
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Myers isn't in the starting lineup for Friday's game against Arizona.

Myers is going through a tough stretch at the plate, as he's now 0-for-12 over his last four contests. Manuel Margot draws the start in center field and will bat sixth.

Padres' Wil Myers: Starting Wednesday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Myers (arm) is in the lineup for Wednesday's game against the Brewers.

Myers was scratched from Tuesday's lineup due to a sore arm, but he was able to pinch hit in the game and is back in the starting nine a day later. Barring another late scratch, Myers will man left field and hit fifth in the Padres' batting order.

Padres' Wil Myers: Dealing with arm soreness
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Myers was scratched from Tuesday's lineup against the Brewers with right arm soreness, Kevin Acee of The San Diego Union-Tribune reports.

He was pulled from the lineup less than an hour before first pitch due to the issue. Nick Martini replaced him in left field and in the second spot in the order.

Padres' Wil Myers: Late scratch Tuesday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Padres' Wil Myers: Homers, doubles in loss
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Myers went 2-for-3 with a two-run homer, a double and two walks in Sunday's 10-5 loss to the Rockies.

Myers' fifth-inning homer cut the Padres' deficit to one run before the bullpen fell apart in the seventh. The 28-year-old has been on an absolute heater this month, going 20-for-48 (.417 average) with eight extra-base hits and 12 RBI. During that time, he's bumped his season OPS from .706 to .761.

Padres' Wil Myers: Delivers walk-off hit
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Myers went 3-for-5 with a double and an RBI in Sunday's 2-1 win over the Rockies.

Myers' 10th-inning single drove in Manny Machado to walk it off. The 28-year-old is on an eight-game hitting streak and has been on a tear in September; he's 12-for-22 (.545) with four extra-base hits with five RBI this month.

Padres' Wil Myers: Swats game-winning homer
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Myers went 3-for-4 with a solo home run and a stolen base in Saturday's 3-0 win over the Rockies.

His fifth-inning shot off Jeff Hoffman proved to be all the offense Joey Lucchesi and the Padres bullpen would need on the night. Myers has caught fire as the season winds down, putting together a seven-game hitting streak and going 10-for-19 (.526) with three home runs, two steals, four runs and six RBI during that stretch.

Padres' Wil Myers: Homers in loss
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Myers hit a solo home run in his only at-bat during Wednesday's 4-1 loss to the Diamondbacks.

Pinch hitting in the top of the ninth, Myers finally got the Padres on the board with a solo homer off T.J. McFarland. Unfortunately, that's as close as they would get. Across 367 at-bats this season, Myers is batting .232/.317/.409 with 16 home runs, 52 runs scored and 13 stolen bases.

Padres' Wil Myers: Provides insurance homer
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Myers went 1-for-2 with a two-run homer in Saturday's 4-1 win over the Giants.

Myers entered as a pinch hitter for pitcher Joey Lucchesi and remained in the game as a defensive replacement for Nick Martini in left field. Myers did his damage in his second at-bat of the game, taking Giants closer Will Smith deep for the two-run blast. It's the 15th homer of the year for the 28-year-old utility man. He's added 41 RBI and 50 runs scored across 358 at-bats this year.
