Myers Progressing Nicely

As seen on Phillies Nation.

Brett Myers could find himself in the Phillies bullpen sooner rather than later. Myers, who is recovering from hip surgery, got the save in a rehab appearance last night.

In two rehab appearances in Double-A Reading, Myers went 0-1, allowing one run in four innings. He struck out seven. Last night, he added two strikeouts in a scoreless ninth inning with the Lehigh Valley IronPigs.

"It's good to be able to get out there, obviously," Myers said. "I haven't felt anything in the hip for about a month."

Myers topped 92 mph on the radar gun. He will pitch again today to see if he can go back-to-back days, the final step before returning.

UPDATE: Myers pitched a 1-2-3 inning on Wednesday night in Lehigh Valley. He threw 8 pitches: 6 strikes.
