Brett Myers, SP PHI
News: The Sports Xchange reports that Phillies SP Brett Myers, who played long-toss and studied video between starts last week, trying to figure out where his fastball velocity had gone, seemingly found some answers on Sunday. Myers' fastball climbed back into the low-90s Saturday night after dipping into the mid-80s in his previous start, and he stuck with the pitch rather than relying on his cutter. The result: Myers allowed two runs in seven strong innings and struck out a season-high 10 batters against the Giants. "I looked back (at the radar-gun reading on the scoreboard), and once I saw what I wanted to see, I was able to keep throwing it and pitch off it," Myers said. "I was able to locate it and throw it enough where it set the rest of my pitches up."
Analysis: Myers hasn't been the dominant pitcher the Phillies hoped he'd be after a successful stint as a closer last year. He has a tough matchup in his next start Thursday at Arizona, but should be used in the majority of formats.
