Myers Demoted

To Triple-A. He'll start Wednesday night for the Iron Pigs. Very interesting.

Myers had to agree to the assignment, and did so. Pat Gillick offers praise:

"I can't say enough about Brett's willingness to accept this assignment," Phillies GM Pat Gillick said. "He understood and is eager to get back on track again."

No word on how the Phils will reshuffle their rotation, but my guess is that Hamels will start Thursday in Atlanta and J.A. Happ will get called up to face the Mets on Friday.

Fun/painful fact: Myers, a six-year veteran in the majors, is younger than all but three (Blackley, Happ, Swindle) of the pitchers on Lehigh Valley's roster.
