Brett Myers was placed on the disabled list yesterday with what the Indians called a forearm injury, but today the team announced that the injury is more specifically a strained elbow ligament.

Paul Hoynes of the Cleveland Plain Dealer reports that Myers will be shut down for at least two weeks, which means he won’t be coming off the disabled list when eligible.

Myers signed a one-year, $7 million deal with the Indians and moved into the rotation after spending last season in the bullpen, but went 0-3 with an 8.02 ERA in his first four starts while serving up 10 homers and showing decreased velocity.

    Probably strained it slapping his wife.

      That’s a stupid and inappropriate comment to make. Everyone knows that he actually pitched well after beating up his wife.

    Just because the Cleveland Plain Dealer is naming the injury incorrectly doesn’t mean you have to. You sprain LIGAMENTS and strain MUSCLES.
