Well, Brett Myers made it to the ballpark today without running into any doors, and made his first rehab appearance since June 5 hip surgery. Myers pitched one inning, allowed two singles and struck out the side for Class-A Clearwater.

Well, Brett Myers made it to the ballpark today without running into any doors, and made his first rehab appearance since June 5 hip surgery. Myers pitched one inning, allowed two singles and struck out the side for Class-A Clearwater. 

Assistant GM Scott Proefrock told me last week, before the swollen eye drama, that the Phils do not expect Myers to need the full 30 days allowed for a rehab assignment, and we can assume that he's now back on that clock. As with any first rehab outing, we'll know more when he wakes up tomorrow and has a feel for how he bounced back.

You may have noticed less blogging the past few days; I've been working hard on some stuff for Sunday and not covering too many games this week.  That will continue for a few days, but I'll keep ya posted if anything big happens, here and on Twitter.
