What Will the Padres Do With Melvin Upton?

Question no. 1: When Melvin Upton returns from his 50-plus at-bat minor league rehab assignment, what will the Padres do with him? Why this question shouldn’t be answered: Upton plays center field, the same position where Wil Myers used to attempt to play — that is, until Myers moved to first base after Yonder Alonso hit the disabled list. Then Myers himself hit the DL, which...

San Diego Padres Welcome Bryant and the Cubs

One of my favorite things about living in the greater Los Angeles area is the versatility of activities I can do with my free time. On Sunday I can head up to the mountains to go camping, on Monday I could enjoy a nice beach day, and on Tuesday I could take a drive down to San Diego to catch the Padres take on the Chicago Cubs in the three-game series opener. Coincidentally, that’s...

Padres place Wil Myers on disabled list, recall RHP Mazzoni

SAN DIEGO (AP) The San Diego Padres have placed first baseman-outfielder Wil Myers on the 15-day disabled list with left wrist tendinitis. The move was made Tuesday, retroactive to May 11.

San Diego Padres: Wil Myers’ resurgence

Wil Myers Some people began writing off Wil Myers after his disastrous second season with the Tampa Bay Rays last year. Myers won the AL Rookie of the Year in 2013 and looked on his way to becoming one of those great players you have no idea how the Rays got their hands on. Myers hit .298/.354/.478 his first year in the big leagues, and the former top looked headed for stardom. A...

Wil Myers is Finally Healthy

“The biggest thing is that I’m finally healthy,” said Wil Myers before a game with the Giants. After breaking his wrist in the fourth game of the year in 2014, and then following that up with another broken wrist (the other one) about six weeks later, Myers is happy to have his health. Those broken […]

Wil Myers Pulls Jose Canseco, Has Home Run Bounce Off His Head (Video)

Wil Myers has had some adventures in the outfield. Myers was tortured by Boston Red Sox fans in 2013 when, as a member of the Tampa Bay Rays, he misplayed a fly ball in Game 1 of the American League Division Series. Now with the San Diego Padres, Myers had another outfield folly Tuesday night versus the Houston Astros. To his credit, Myers got a pretty good read on a deep fly ball...

San Diego Padres: Notes on opening series

The San Diego Padres dropped two of three to the Los Angeles Dodgers in the opening series of the season. There’s not much, if any, conclusions you can come after only three games. It’s an incredibly tiny sample size, and there shouldn’t be any definitive judgments made. Still, some interesting things happened in the series that give me hope that all the hype and offseason...

San Diego Padres: Previewing the bench

Will Venable An underrated part of the San Diego Padres’ offseason was how their big-time acquisitions allowed them to upgrade their bench with in-house options. Guys like Will Venable, Abraham Almonte, Tommy Medica and Yangervis Solarte aren’t going to get regular at-bats, something that was far too common over the last several years. With less chances to be exposed, a lot...

Report: Padres, Rays talking Wil Myers trade

The San Diego Padres have made a significant splash this winter in acquiring Matt Kemp from the Dodgers, and they’ve sniffed around some other bats (Yasmany Tomas, Justin Upton, Pablo Sandova) as well. But San Diego’s latest potential venture in the trade market is one that I don’t think anyone saw coming – the team is reportedly discussing a blockbuster trade with the Tampa...
