Padres…Wil Myers makes debut at 3B….has played only 2-games in majors at 3rd…about 16-games in Omaha at 3B…Myers comments
..Spent 6-days taking round balls
..I feel normal at position right now
..Biggest issues is footwork
..Like being involved in most every play at 1B…will see a lot of plays at 3B
..I like new challenges
..Padres want to get best bats in lineup-so move to 3B makes sense
..I know will be more movement at 3B than 1B
..Will rely on a lot of people to get aligned for the shifts
..Freddy Galvis gives me great protection because of his range at SS.
Padres…Andy Green comments about moving Will Myers to 3rd base
..He’s taken a lot of ground balls there the last couple of weeks
..We have 50-games to see if this experiment works
..He will play a lot of games at 3B
..He likes challenge of learning positions..RF-CF-LF-3B-1B-done it all well
..Played really well in LF for us
..We are not marrying ourselves to Will at 3B forever-just right now
..He has confidence-he just needs lots of reps
..Will loves the intrigue of all tis
..He has size, plus range..what he did at 1B helps him learn 3B
..Look at other teams moves..Machado-Baez-move to 3B-makes it easy to sell player
..Wil needs consistent reps
..Fred Galvis is a consistent anchor in the infield-that will help Will
..Christian Villanueva will work some at 2B-even at SS
..Want to get our best bats in lineup daily…Wil to 3B helps us.
