Jayson Stark of The Athletic reports that the Padres "seem more motivated than ever" to trade Wil Myers.
Myers' salary jumps from $5.5 million to $22.5 million in 2020, the first of three years that he will be paid at that rate. He was also benched for long stretches at a time in 2019 and hasn't posted a .800 OPS since his rookie season. So, yeah, we're not surprised they're motivated. Stark notes that the team may even be willing to attach prospects to Myers in order to make a trade work.(více...)
The Padres have made it known around the league that outfielder Wil Myers is available via trade.
The Padres still owe Myers $61 million over the next three seasons, which will make him difficult to trade considering his sub-par production. Myers is coming off a down season in which he hit just .239/.321/.418 with 18 home runs and 53 RBI in 155 games in 2019. He stole 16 bases to salvage some fantasy value, but the fact remains that his 95 OPS+ was five percent below that of a league average hitter. He also plays poor defense in the outfield. Myers has been better in the past and could still help a number of teams around the majors, but if the Padres are going to unload him they will have to pay a significant portion of his salary to make a deal work.(více...)
