Any update when he'll return to the starting rotation. Yes he got off to a bad start, but he is their ace and he will be back shortly. Maybe its his mechanics and the weather. Several pitchers have struggled outta the gate. Now that the weather may show some stability. How long before he gets back under Manuel's trust again? ;-D :~(

This has nothing to do with Myers' bad start (or almost nothing anyway). The Phillies are panicking because their bullpen is so bad and they really seem to think Myers serves the team best in a middle-relief role. I'd say he's there for a while, quite possibly the whole year. That may change if A) Lieber pitches well and they can trade him, B) they can acquire middle relief help some other way, or C) there's an injury to one or more of their starters. I don't think this will necessarily be temporary.

i don't think it will last that long. they need to trade leiber and they will get better value for him if he can get a couple of good starts. it will take as long as it takes for someone to want leiber and give some value up for him. so if you want myers to return to the rotation, chear for leiber to do very good!

Well, he did good tonight. Threw a 1-hitter, but was on a pitch count and left in the 6th or 7th, I forget.

I think this is more likely than Myers returning to the rotation. Two or three good starts isn't going to make Lieber that much more marketable, let's face it.
