The Brett Myers experiment has been an interesting one.  Is he a reliever?  Is he a starter?  Is he some kind of strange hybrid pitcher?  Teams don't seem to know.  What is known is that the Cleveland Indians will move Myers back to the bullpen when he returns from the disabled list. Jordan Bastian of MLB.com confirmed Myers conversion back to a relief role. Francona confirmed postgame that RHP Brett Myers will indeed be converted to a relief role in his comeback from the DL. — Jordan Bastian (@MLBastian) June 23, 2013 Myers started three games for the Indians and made one relief appearance this year before his injury.  He's been used that way for most of his career; combination reliever/starter.  With the Philadelphia Phillies, Myers made 240 appearances over eight seasons, 183 of those were starts.  With the Houston Astros, Myers made 102 appearances in three years, and 66 of those were starts.  He's had a strange career to say the least. Blogging for Susie This season, Myers was 0-3 with and 8.02 ERA before being placed on the DL.  He had been battling a UCL strain and the team did not want to risk a tear.  There were concerns that he would have to undergo Tommy John surgery regardless, but that no longer appears to be a concern. In his 12-year career, Brett Myers is 97-96 with a 4.25 ERA.  He has pitched for four different teams in his career and finished top-ten in Cy Young voting once.  When healthy, Myers is a decent pitcher.  However, finding a role for him has always been difficult for the teams with which he has pitched.
