Indians release Brett Myers


Brett Myers has not pitched for the Cleveland Indians sine April 19. He will not pitch for them again this season as the team cut ties with the 33-year-old right hander on Thursday.

Myers struck out two batters in a rehab assignment on Monday but the Indians have opted to release him rather then place him on their roster. Myers was activated from the 60-day disabled list and then released.

Signed to a $7 million deal in the off-season, Myers pitched in only four games for the Indians this season going 0-3 with a 8.02 ERA and a 1.59 WHIP.

Myers split the 2012 season as a reliever between the Houston Astros and Chicago White Sox.
