Myers tossed a scoreless second inning in the outing. He struck out a batter without allowing a hit for the Scrappers. The veteran is currently on the 60-day disabled list for the Indians with inflammation in his right elbow. He began the season in Cleveland’s starting rotation, but will work out of the bullpen upon his return to the major league team. In three appearances this season, Myers has posted a record of 0-3 with a 8.02 ERA. He signed a one-year, $7 million contract in January.
Fellow big-leaguer Blake Wood also pitched an inning of relief on a rehab assignment on Monday. He worked a scoreless third inning, allowing two hits, inducing a key double-play in the frame. The Tribe claimed the right-hander off waivers from Kansas City on Nov. 2. The 27-year-old underwent Tommy John surgery last May and missed all of last season.
