Myers went 2-for-3 with a solo home run in Thursday's win over the Diamondbacks.

EDGE Analysis

The slugger continues to impress early in the season, leading the majors with 25 hits and eight multi-hit performances. The power has been as advertised, but last year's 28-steal speed hasn't showed up. In fact, he has been caught stealing on his only two attempts so far. Myers had an 82-percent success rate on steal attempts last season, so the speed wasn't fluky and may still arrive. Even if it doesn't, owners have to be pleased with their returns from the 26-year-old early this season.

Myers went 2-for-3 with a solo home run in Thursday's victory over the Diamondbacks.

EDGE Analysis

The 26-year-old is off to a scorching start at the plate, as he now holds an 11-game hit streak. Although the was just his first extra-base hit since April 15, Myers still holds a 1.073 OPS thanks to a .373 batting average and four home runs on the campaign.

Myers went 4-for-4 with a single, double, solo home run and triple -- in that order -- with two RBI and two runs scored in Monday's 5-3 win over the Rockies.

EDGE Analysis

It was the first cycle of Myers' career and the second in team history. The 2016 All-Star is now hitting .382 in the early going with three home runs and seven RBI. He has yet to swipe a base, but Myers certainly has it in him to put up another 20-20 season in 2017.

Myers went 2-for-5 with a two-run home run in Sunday's 5-3 loss to the Giants.

EDGE Analysis

It was Myers' second home run of the season, and he's now hitting .300 in the early going. Some may be wary of Myers replicating his 28-homer, 28-steal season in 2016, especially since he doesn't have much protection around him in San Diego's lineup. The 26-year-old certainly has the skills to post another 20-20 campaign, and he's well on his way.

Myers provided the only offense for the Padres on Thursday, going 1-for-4 with a two-run home run in a 10-2 loss to the Dodgers.

EDGE Analysis

The slugging first baseman has picked up right where he left off last season, batting .313 (5-for-16) with a homer through four games this season. There was some uncertainty regarding whether or not the 26-year-old could replicate last year's 28/28 season, but he is off to a great start so far. Moving to first base last season was one of the main reasons Myers was able to stay on the field for more than 100 games for the first time in his career, and owners are hoping for more of the same in 2017.

Myers went 2-for-4 with an RBI and a run in a 4-0 win over the Dodgers on Tuesday.

EDGE Analysis

After striking out twice in the opener, he looked a lot better this time around. Myers is coming off a huge year in which he posted 28 homers and steals apiece, and at 26, he's right in the heart of his offensive prime. Another big campaign should be in the works, although fantasy owners shouldn't expect Myers to repeat that steal total.

Myers (neck) went 2-for-2 with a pair of doubles and a run scored in Sunday's spring loss to the Reds.

EDGE Analysis

Myers had to exit Thursday's contest after experiencing some tightness in his neck, but the injury was never considered serious. The 26-year-old confirmed that sentiment by going 3-for-6 in two starts this past weekend. He will continue to see action in the final couple weeks of spring training before assuming his role as the Padres' everyday first baseman and middle-of-the-order power threat.

Myers exited Thursday's game with what has been confirmed as a neck spasm, Dennis Lin of the Union-Tribune reports. "The spasm resolved. The report I got was he's completely fine," said manager Andy Green on Thursday.

EDGE Analysis

Myers was replaced by a pinch-runner during Thursday's Spring Training game against the Royals after going from first to third. According to Lin, Myers was seen walking with team trainers after his exit. Fortunately, it appears that Myers' neck spasm is no longer an issue. That said, the Padres may opt to hold Myers out for a day or two as a precautionary measure.

Myers was pulled from Thursday's game against the Royals with a tight neck, Dennis Lin of the San Diego Union-Tribune reports.

EDGE Analysis

There's yet to be an indication regarding the severity of Myers' ailment, but more information should be available in the near future. As a precaution, the club may opt to rest their hard-hitting first baseman for a couple days to avoid further injury, but there's no reason to believe his Opening Day availability is in jeopardy.

Myers went 2-for-2 with a solo homer run in Thursday's spring training loss to the Brewers.

EDGE Analysis

The 2016 All-Star continues his hot spring, batting .412 (7-for-17) with a pair of homers and a pair of steals. Myers is coming off of a career-year where he delivered 28 home runs and 28 stolen bases for the Friars. The key for his breakout season was his ability to stay healthy and play over 100 games for the first time in his young career, something that can be attributed to his conversion from an outfielder to a first baseman. Myers said he is targeting a 40-40 season in 2016, which isn't as improbable as it initially sounds considering he is entering his prime years, but he will have tremendous value at a shallow first base position even if he simply repeats last year's totals.
