Wait, What's Wrong With My Eye-Rs?

Phillies Right-handed pitcher Brett Myers didn't see things through on Saturday when he apparently injured his eye while playing an innocent game of catch with his 4-year-old son.

Because of this injury, he will not be able to pitch for the Phillies Class-A Clearwater Thrashers. He was supposed to only pitch one inning in relief. Already dealing with a torn labrum in his hip, he must cope with this other injury. These unfortunate events will keep him out of action until the Clearwater medical team examines his eye.

Brett Myers is on the road to coming back to Phillies pinstripes; however, this hot headed power arm will have to find a way to speed up recovery processes. This is the same injury teammate and second baseman Chase Utley had. Utley went above and beyond so he could be ready for Opening Day 2009.

Myers' cause is the postseason.

If Myers' can come back for the postseason, the Phillies banged up bullpen will look stronger than ever going into October, or even November?
