As for how Myers happened to hurt his eye, well, the story keeps changing. Myers originally said he suffered the eye injury while playing catch with his son, and he got clocked in the face by an errant throw. Now it's hard to believe a professional baseball player would have trouble catching a ball thrown by a small child, so it's no surprise that a few hours later new details emerged.
OK, here's a Myers update, and the story keeps getting stranger. According to Amaro, through a team spokesman, Myers initially misinformed the Phillies about the cause of his injury. According to the spokesman, Myers slipped getting out of his truck last night, hit his face and suffered significant swelling around his eye. He's icing it today and will see the Phillies' medical staff in Clearwater tomorrow. The spokesman said Myers initially told the Phillies that he was hit by a throw from his son, then changed his story.Well that's a little more believable, isn't it?
Now as to what caused Myers to slip out of his truck -- if that's even the truth -- I'll let you decide for yourself. The fact he lied about the reason originally makes it somewhat easy to figure out.
