Found May 23, 2013 on Waiting For Next Year:
PLAYERS: Brett Myers
TEAMS: Cleveland Indians
Cleveland Indians pitcher Brett Myers (8.02 ERA this season) started for the AA Akron Aeros last night on a rehab assignment. Myers was placed in the 15 day DL back on April 21st with an elbow strain. According to the Aeros’ game report, the start didn’t go as well as they had hoped- “Myers (0-1) was making his second rehab start for the Indians, tuning up a sore elbow that landed him on the DL on April 20th. Myers worked 4 1/3 innings and allowed just the two first-inning hits. He walked four—possibly the most troubling aspect of his outing—and struck out two. He threw 76 pitches, 41 for strikes.” Myers allowed 3 earned runs in his 4 innings. In addition, Myers hit a batter and had a wild pitch. In Myers’ first rehab start he pitched well, going three innings while allowing just one hit and a walk. [Related: The Diff- Historical finishes for 26-18 teams]

Around The Farm: May 21, 2013

It may be easy to forget among the Indians recent successes, especially with how well Mark Reynolds has been playing defensively at third base, but Lonnie Chisenhall is still in AAA. His minimum limit has just passed and he was not immediately brought back up to Cleveland, so it seems like a good time to check up on his progress. He has played eight games since his demotion and...
