Phillies right-hander Brett Myers' scheduled rehab start for Advanced Class A Clearwater was scratched Saturday afternoon after he was hit in the eye by a baseball while playing catch with his 4-year-old son Kolt.
According to delawareonline.com, the Phillies had not yet revealed the extent of the injury, but a team spokesman said that more details would be available later in the day from Phillies general manager Ruben Amaro Jr.
Myers, on the disabled list since undergoing right hip surgery on June 5, had been on a surprisingly rapid return schedule and had been slated to pitch one inning for the Threshers in their game against the Tampa Yankees in his return to the mound.
Myers, who will be eligible for free agency following the 2009 season, has been working hard to get back on the mound before season's end. He went 4-3 with a 4.66 ERA in 10 starts before being shut down.

I hear Kolt Myers is a super sleeper in dynasty leagues.
