Padres | Wil Myers delivering on potential

Thu, 05 May 2016 11:13:05 -0700

San Diego Padres 1B Wil Myers is healthy and has made key adjustments at the plate this year. He's improved his ability to go up the middle and the other way, with the percentage of his batted balls up the middle nearly 14% higher than his career norm. Myers' contact rate has improved, and he's made a seamless transition from the outfield to first base.

Fantasy Tip: A wrist injury led to his disappointing .253/.336/.427 line in 2015. But Myers was a rebound candidate in fantasy drafts this spring, and he's delivering on his low draft price so far as a lineup linchpin in San Diego next to Matt Kemp.

Padres | Wil Myers out Tuesday

Tue, 12 Apr 2016 13:01:57 -0700

San Diego Padres 1B Wil Myers is not in the starting lineup Tuesday, April 12. 1B Brett Wallace is in the lineup and hitting fourth.

Fantasy Tip: This appears to be a normal day off for Myers, who can play both left and first base. Don't be surprised to see him available off the bench in a pinch. In the meantime, Wallace is hitless in four at-bats and carries no fantasy value.

Padres | Wil Myers launches second homer

Mon, 11 Apr 2016 16:19:52 -0700

San Diego Padres OF/1B Wil Myers connected on his second home run of the season Monday, April 11, versus the Philadelphia Phillies. He finished the day 1-for-4 with a run and an RBI.

Fantasy Tip: Myers is hitting a modest .286 out of the gate, but he still might have some appeal in many mixed leagues, batting cleanup every day for a lineup that has been heating up over the past handful of days. At the very least, Myers is someone worth stashing on the bench for when he inevitably gets hot.

Padres | Wil Myers finishes hot

Wed, 30 Mar 2016 16:44:15 -0700

San Diego Padres OF Wil Myers finishes Cactus League play riding an 11-game hitting streak (.405, 15-for-37), and he raised his spring average from .080 to .274. Myers went 1-for-3 with a run scored Wednesday, March 30.

Fantasy Tip: It's the ideal way to head into the regular season for any player. Myers is an undervalued commodity that could be a difference maker in 2016 if he can stay healthy. He'll also add first base eligibility, making his power-speed combo very attractive in the middle rounds.
