Padres outfielder Wil Myers working at first base in workouts
|by Brandon Wise | CBSSports.com|
|(3/29/15) Padres outfielder Wil Myers is taking limited practice time at first base during workouts, manager Bub Black said Sunday according to MLB.com.
Myers, who is hitting .278 with three home runs this spring, is currently projected to be the team's starting center fielder, but is part of a very deep outfield.
Padres' Wil Myers smacks opposite-field home run Saturday
|by R.J. White | CBSSports.com|
|(3/8/15) Padres outfielder Wil Myers has shown an ability to drive the ball to all fields in his career and did so again Saturday, smacking a home run to right field in his team's 7-6 win over the Giants.
"A lot of my home runs the other way are balls on the outer half. I hear a lot of people say I can't use the other side of the plate, but I feel I do a pretty good job of it," Myers said, per MLB.com. "… Catch a ball deep and put a pretty good swing on it."
Myers also indicated he's still getting used to facing live pitching in game situations.
"My eyes are still a little slow. But I was able to get a fastball over the plate and put a good swing on it," Myers said. "Early in camp, my eyes have to focus on the ball more. I haven't seen 93, 94 [mph] in six months. It will come around."
The Padres acquired Myers this offseason after he hit .222/.294/.320 with six home runs, 35 RBI and six stolen bases in 325 at-bats last season.
Padres' Wil Myers hoping to prove the doubters wrong
|by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com|
|(3/5/15) Padres outfielder Wil Myers is hoping he can prove the doubters wrong this season, according to MLB.com.
Myers not only has a lot to prove at the plate, but he also wants to show that he can handle his new defensive position. "Going into this year, I have a lot of doubters out there. I not only want to prove them wrong but prove to myself that I can play a good center field," Myers said.
He continued, "I've played a lot there in the minor leagues. And hearing everyone say, 'I don't think he can play center field,' is going to motivate me to play a great center field."
Manager Bud Black seems encouraged by Myers' defensive play thus far. "He's looking good, good angles, good routes, good hands, athletic," Black said. "His speed is fine. His strides look good tracking fly balls. He's an athletic guy. From what we've seen so far [it's been] all good."
The 24-year-old hit .222/.294/.320 over 325 at-bats last season.
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.

|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.
