Myers starts at 6:30, could throw 50 pitches

A news flash for all of you out there interested in seeing big league talent at Double-A ticket prices: Brett Myers will start game one of a doubleheader in Reading tonight at 6:30. He could throw as many as 50 pitches, a key test of his durability as the Phils decide when to bring him back. It stands to reason that Myers could return sometime next week if all goes well.
