Wil Myers among the candidates to hit leadoff for Padres
|by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com|
|(2/27/15) The Padres don't have a prototypical leadoff hitter on their 40-man roster, so manager Bud Black is already trying to pare down the potential candidates he does have at his disposal, per U-T San Diego.
“Yangervis Solarte, Will Venable, Cameron Maybin and Wil Myers -- let’s start there,” Black said of the options at the top of his list.
However, of that list of players, Myers is the only one assured of playing every day. He has a career .324 on-base percentage.
Report: Padres planning to keep Wil Myers
|by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com|
|(12/22/14) The Padres have no intention of dealing away recently acquired outfielder Wil Myers, sources within the organization have told the San Diego Union-Tribune, which has conceded that mindset could change.
Reports have Myers being included in trade talks with Philadelphia involving pitcher Cole Hamels.
The Padres are planning to have Myers start the season in center field, flanked by more ballyhooed offseason acquisitions Matt Kemp and Justin Upton.

Report: Padres have discussed Phillies pitcher Cole Hamels
|by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com|
|(12/21/14) The Padres have discussed a trade for Phillies pitcher Cole Hamels, according to the Daily News.
Newly-acquired outfielder Wil Myers would be used as the centerpiece in the deal. By bringing in Myers, Matt Kemp and Justin Upton, San Diego has a glut of talent in the outfield. While it seems strange that the team would turn around and deal Myers, he would be the type of talent the Phillies are said to be seeking for Hamels. Philadelphia reportedly wants two or three "premium" prospects for Hamels.
The 30-year-old Hamels posted a 2.46 ERA over 204 2/3 innings last season. He's owed $90 million over the next four seasons.

The very active Padres will have an entirely new outfield in 2015.
Padres, Nats, Rays announce Wil Myers trade
|by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com|
|(12/19/14) The Padres officially announced an 11-player, three-team trade that sent Wil Myers from Tampa Bay to San Diego on Friday, per the team's official website.
San Diego acquired Myers, catcher Ryan Hanigan, left-handed pitcher Jose Castillo and right-handed pitcher Gerardo Reyes from the Rays. Tampa Bay received catcher Rene Rivera, right-handed pitcher Burch Smith and infielder Jake Bauers from San Diego and outfielder Steven Souza and left-handed pitcher Travis Ott from Washington. Meanwhile, the Nationals received right-handed pitcher Joe Ross and a player to be named later, likely infielder Trea Turner, per CBSSports.com Baseball Insider Jon Heyman.
|2014 summary: Wil Myers' 2014 season got off to a bad start, as he batted .227 with five home runs through his first 53 games, and things just got worse from there. A stress fracture in his wrist led to a disabled list stint that spanned nearly half the season, and when Myers returned, he struggled even more at the plate. Over his final 34 games, Myers batted .213 with five extra-base hits (including one home run). Having spent his first two major league seasons with the Rays, Myers will now move on to the Padres, to whom he was traded in December.|
Playing time status: Myers will attempt to give Fantasy owners a full season's worth of at-bats for the first time in his career, as he is expected to hold down an everyday role in the Padres' outfield.
2015 outlook: If we knew Myers could live up to his rookie year level of performance, he would be an easy pick to make in the middle rounds of a standard mixed league draft. After an awful sophomore season, it's less clear whether Myers can bounce back to that level and sustain it over a full season. That uncertainty makes him a better bet to pursue in the later rounds.
