Indians manager Terry Francona confirmed that Brett Myers will be used as a reliever when he returns from the disabled list, per MLB.com’s Jordan Bastian. Myers has been on the DL since April 20 after suffering from right elbow tendinitis and a mild ulnar collateral ligament sprain. He is expected to join short-season Mahoning Valley on Monday for a rehab assignment, but there is no timetable for the right-hander’s return.

Prior to the injury, Myers posted a disappointing 8.02 ERA in four starts. The Indians had signed him to a one-year, $7 million contract in the off-season, but they do have an $8 million club option for the 2014 season, so they have some interest in seeing him right the ship out of the bullpen.
