Myers went 1-for-4 with a solo home run, a walk and two runs scored in Sunday's 5-2 win over the Giants.

EDGE Analysis

Myers became the first Padres hitter to reach 20 homers this season with a first-inning bomb off Ty Blach. The first baseman is slashing .252/.333/.476, so he's not the man to blame for San Diego's 30th-ranked offense.

Myers went 1-for-5 with a solo homer Saturday against the Giants.

EDGE Analysis

Myers smashed his 19th homer of the season off Matt Moore to tie the game at one apiece in a game the Padres would eventually lose. His power is his greatest asset to fantasy managers while his .252 batting average leaves much to be desired.

Myers went 1-for-3 with two walks and his first home run of the second half in Tuesday's loss to the Rockies.

EDGE Analysis

After toying with Myers batting leadoff, manager Andy Green has moved his slugger back into his usual role as the Padres' three-hole hitter. Tuesday's homer was the 26-year-old's 17th of the campaign, and his .252/.332/.460 triple slash is eerily similar to last year's breakout mark of .259/.336/.461. Aside from his pedestrian batting average, Myers has been a four-category contributor this season.

Myers batted atop the Padres' lineup Friday, going 3-for-4 with his 10th stolen base of the season in a win over the Phillies.

EDGE Analysis

Manager Andy Green swapped Jose Pirela and Myers in his batting order, using the 26-year-old in the leadoff spot for the first time this season. The move was made in an effort to spark an underperforming San Diego offense. The slugging first baseman did his best leadoff man impersonation, getting on base three times and reminding fantasy owners that he does have some speed in his legs. While Pirela's placement in the heart of the order is warranted, one would assume that Myers' ability to hit for power and drive in runs would be better suited in the middle of the order. That said, the new configuration produced a win for the Friars, so Green is sticking with the same lineup Saturday against the Phillies.

Myers is starting at first base and batting leadoff for Friday's series opener against the Phillies.

EDGE Analysis

In an apparent effort to kickstart the Padres' lowly offense, manager Andy Green is flipping Jose Pirela and Myers in the batting order. The 26-year-old slugger leads the team in home runs (16), RBI (42) and hits (78), so the move to the No. 1 hole may be able to generate some extra opportunities for production. Myers batted leadoff in just two games for the Padres last year.

Myers is not in the lineup for Sunday's game against the Dodgers, Jeff Sanders of The San Diego Union-Tribune reports.

EDGE Analysis

Hitless in his previous two contests, Myers will get the day off ahead of the series finale against Kenta Maeda and the Dodgers. Hector Sanchez will take over at first base in his absence.

Myers went 1-for-2 with a two-run home run in Thursday's 6-0 win over the Braves.

EDGE Analysis

The slugging first baseman continues to flash his power, tallying his fourth homer over his last 12 games. Myers is on a mission to prove that last year's breakout season was no fluke. His 16 long balls through 77 games puts him on pace to surpass the mark of 28 he set in 2016.

Myers -- who had a minor wrist injury scare Saturday -- remained in the lineup Sunday and went 1-for-3 with a walk and his 15th home run of the season in a loss to Detroit.

EDGE Analysis

The wrist injury Myers suffered on a collision as first base Saturday was never considered serious, but a home run further assures his fantasy owners that there is nothing to worry about. 15 homers puts the 26-year-old on pace to match last year's mark of 28, with his steals not lagging too far behind. Another 20-20 season seems likely.

Myers had to be checked on after his left wrist was involved in a collision at first base Saturday, but he stayed in the game, finishing 0-for-2 with a walk, an RBI and a run scored in a 7-3 win over the Tigers.

EDGE Analysis

The wrist that Nick Castellanos ran into Saturday was the same wrist that required Myers to undergo season-ending surgery in 2015, according to Dennis Lin of The San Diego Union-Tribune. The fact that the slugger stayed in the game is a positive sign that he avoided an injury, but this is certainly a situation to monitor considering the effect wrist injuries -- even minor -- can have on a hitter's power.

Myers went 1-for-4 with a three-run home run -- his 13th of the season -- in Friday's extra-inning loss to the Brewers.

EDGE Analysis

It is no secret that the slugging first baseman was mired in a lengthy slump, but it appears that he is beginning to flip the script over the last week, batting .308 (8-for-26) with a homer and two steals in seven games. Despite his on-again, off-again production, Myers' overall numbers (.261 average, 13 homers and eight steals) are on par with last year's breakout season.
