UPDATE (5:50 p.m.): Jim Salisbury of the Inquirer says it’s a fraying of the labrum of the hip. His surgery (which he has to agree upon) is like those of Alex Rodriguez and Chase Utley. They needed about four-to-five months for recovery; that alone would end Myers’ season.
Todd Zolecki is reporting Brett Myers will likely have hip surgery and be out for the remainder of the 2009 season. As Myers is a free agent at the end of the season, he may have thrown his final pitch as a Phillie.
More when it comes.
