Padres' Wil Myers: Launches two homers
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Myers went 3-for-4 with two solo home runs and a double in Friday's win over the Reds.

Myers socked two homers, in the second and fourth innings, respectively, and he now has eight on the year. This was his first multi-hit game since June 4 and his first multi-homer game of the sesaon. He's slashing .241/.293/.389 on the season, so while his averages could use some improvement, the eight homers to go with four steals might be better than expected through 216 plate appearances.

Padres' Wil Myers: Not starting Tuesday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Myers is not in the starting lineup for Tuesday's game against the Rockies.

Myers will get some rest with Jurickson Profar getting the start in right field. With Trent Grisham recently back from a heel injury, Myers could see more frequent days off going forward, though he still figures to serve as the Padres' primary right fielder.

Padres' Wil Myers: Receives day off Monday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Myers won't be in the lineup Monday versus the Cubs, Jordan McPherson of the Miami Herald reports.

Myers started the past four games but will take a seat Monday for the series opener vs. Chicago. Brian O'Grady was promoted from Triple-A El Paso and will work in right field for the Padres.

Padres' Wil Myers: Takes seat Wednesday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Padres' Wil Myers: Goes yard Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Myers went 1-for-4 with a solo home run in Sunday's 7-4 loss to Houston.

The 30-year-old continues to swing a hot bat -- he's gone 7-for-16 with two home runs, six RBI and three runs scored in the last four games. Myers has posted a .252/.338/.430 slash line with six homers, 22 RBI, 19 runs scored and four stolen bases in 154 plate appearances overall. He hit third in Sunday's contest, but the outfielder has regularly batted sixth since returning from the COVID-19 injured list May 23.

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

Myers went 3-for-5 with a three-run home run, a walk and four total RBI in Saturday's extra-innings victory over Houston.

Myers plated a run with an infield single in the eighth inning, drawing the Padres within three. After Fernando Tatis played hero with a three-run blast in the ninth inning to send the game into extra frames, Myers enjoyed the spotlight with a three-run blast of his own in the top of the 12th that provided the winning margin. The homer was Myers' first since April 23 -- a span of 21 games.

Padres' Wil Myers: Comes off COVID-19 IL
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Padres reinstated Myers from the COVID-19 injured list ahead of Sunday's game against the Mariners, Jeff Sanders of The San Diego Union-Tribune reports.

As expected, Myers will be good to go for the series finale with Seattle after he was sidelined for a week and a half while waiting to clear all COVID-19 health and safety protocols. San Diego hasn't revealed its lineup for Sunday's contest, but it will likely include Myers, who had been a fixture in the Padres outfield prior to being shut down. Through 35 games, Myers is slashing .255/.342/.415 with four home runs, four stolen bases, 15 RBI and 15 runs.

Padres' Wil Myers: Could return Saturday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Myers (COVID-19) may be able to return to the Padres on Saturday, Jeff Sanders of The San Diego Union-Tribune reports.

The veteran tested positive for COVID-19 on May 12 but has remained asymptomatic. Teammates Fernando Tatis and Eric Hosmer were both activated Wednesday after their own stints on the COVID-19 injured list, and Myers could soon follow. He is slashing .255/.342/.415 on the season.

May 12, 2021 02:32 PM
Padres' Wil Myers: Lands on COVID IL
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Padres officially placed Myers (illness) on the COVID-19 injured list Wednesday.

Myers' move to the IL was merely a formality after he was revealed Tuesday to have tested positive for the coronavirus. With utility men Jurickson Profar and Jorge Mateo already on the COVID-19 IL, the Padres could turn to recent call-ups Brian O'Grady and Patrick Kivlehan to pick up starts in the corner outfield in the short term.

Padres' Wil Myers: Tests positive for coronavirus
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Myers was removed from Tuesday's game against the Rockies after testing positive for COVID-19, AJ Cassavell of MLB.com reports.

It initially appeared the 30-year-old exited Tuesday's contest with an elbow issue, but he instead tested positive for COVID. Eric Hosmer also left the game due to contact tracing protocols. Fernando Tatis tested positive earlier in the day, with Jorge Mateo and Jurickson Profar landing on the COVID-19 injured list as close contacts. Myers is asymptomatic, and his return timeline will depend on whether he is fully vaccinated and when he tests negative for the virus.

Padres' Wil Myers: Leaves with apparent elbow issue
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Myers was removed from Tuesday's game at Colorado with an apparent elbow injury, Kevin Acee of The San Diego Union-Tribune reports.

The 30-year-old appeared to suffer the injury during the first inning when making a catch against the outfield wall, and he was replaced in right field by Tucupita Marcano during the third inning. The severity of the injury remains unclear, and Myers should be considered day-to-day while being evaluated.

Padres' Wil Myers: Takes seat Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Myers is out of the lineup Sunday versus the Giants, Kevin Acee of The San Diego Union-Tribune reports.

Myers started the first two games of the series and will head to the bench for Sunday afternoon's finale. Jurickson Profar will start in right field and bat seventh for San Diego.

Padres' Wil Myers: Precautionary scratch
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Myers was a late scratch for Wednesday's game against the Diamondbacks for precautionary reasons due to contact tracing, but he's since been cleared and is available off the bench.

The 30-year-old was scratched from the starting nine shortly before first pitch Wednesday, but there's apparently no cause for concern. Myers should be back in the lineup shortly after the precautionary absence in Arizona.

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

Myers was scratched from Wednesday's lineup against the Diamondbacks, Kevin Acee of The San Diego Union-Tribune reports.

The 30-year-old was penciled in to start in right field Wednesday, per usual, but he was replaced in the lineup by Jorge Mateo at the last minute. Myers figures to be dealing with some sort of injury, though the Padres have yet to make an announcement.

Padres' Wil Myers: On bench for series finale
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Myers is out of the lineup for Sunday's game against the Dodgers.

Myers will get a chance to rest his legs after he racked up a career-high three stolen bases in Saturday's 5-4 loss. Jurickson Profar replaces Myers in right field.

Padres' Wil Myers: Swipes three bags
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Myers went 1-for-4 with three stolen bases and a run in Saturday's loss to the Dodgers.

Despite notching only one hit, Myers ran wild on the bases, stealing second following a single in the second inning and then swiping both second and third -- the latter on a double-steal -- after getting on base via fielder's choice in the eighth. With the trio of thefts, Myers has already surpassed his total of two steals he amassed across 55 games in 2020.

Padres' Wil Myers: Ends drought with HR
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Myers went 1-for-3 with a solo home run, a walk and two runs scored during Friday's 6-1 win over the Dodgers.

Myers ended an 0-for-12 drought to lead off the second inning when he took Clayton Kershaw deep to left to tie the game up at one apiece. The 30-year-old has been experiencing some inflammation in his right knee, which has likely contributed to his recent struggles, as he was slashing .333/.424/.588 before going hitless over a five-game stretch entering Friday. It's unclear if he's still affected by the knee issue or not, but he will look to return to his early season form after finally making some hard contact at the plate.

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

Myers went 0-for-1 with a strikeout in Wednesday's loss to the Brewers.

Myers was given the opportunity to turn a two-run Padres deficit around quickly, coming up with one out and the bases loaded in the eighth inning. He worked the count full but ultimately struck out swinging. Myers has opened on the bench in four of San Diego's past eight games due to inflammation in his right knee, per the Associated Press, but he has been used as a pinch hitter in each contest that he hasn't started.

April 21, 2021 02:24 PM
Padres' Wil Myers: Takes seat Wednesday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Myers isn't starting Wednesday's game against the Brewers.

Myers struck out three times in four at-bats Tuesday and has reached base just once in his last eight plate appearances. Jurickson Profar will take his place in right field Wednesday, batting fifth.
