Chris Cotillo of MLBDailyDish.com reports that Brett Myers will sit out the 2014 season but is not retired.
Myers plans to look for a deal next offseason. The veteran right-hander held an 8.02 ERA over four appearances for the Indians last season before being diagnosed with a partially torn UCL and eventually released. He didn't have surgery, so he's going to be a major health question in 2015. Apr 1 - 8:28 PM

Indians released RHP Brett Myers.

He was first activated off the 60-day disabled list and then cut. Myers hasn't appeared in a game since mid-April due to a lingering right elbow injury.

Brett Myers (elbow) is scheduled to make a rehab appearance with Double-A Akron on Saturday.

It will be his first game action since June 27. Myers will likely need to make back-to-back appearances in the minors before being reevaluated, but should be an option for the Indians' bullpen at some point in September.

Brett Myers (elbow) threw a successful simulated game on Sunday.

Myers hasn't appeared in a game since being shut down from his rehab assignment in late June. The simulated game is a nice step, but he'll need to make a handful of rehab appearance before being an option for the Indians' bullpen.

Brett Myers (elbow) remains without a timetable to return from the disabled list.

Myers has been shut down from his throwing program since July 2 and is trying to pitch through a partially torn UCL. "Right now, he's just trying to get his arm feeling right," Indians pitching coach Mickey Callaway said. "Hopefully, he'll be throwing off the mound by the time the All-Star break is done."

Brett Myers will be shut down for 3-5 days after feeling discomfort in his right elbow while warming up Monday.

Brett Myers (elbow) is currently slated to make five rehab appearances.

The number is not set in stone, as it could change based on how Myers feels. He's already made one rehab appearance for Short-Season Mahoning Valley. Myers will be brought back as a reliever for the Tribe.

Indians manager Terry Francona confirmed Sunday that Brett Myers (elbow) will be converted to a reliever when he returns from the disabled list.

Myers is expected to begin a rehab assignment with Short-Season Mahoning Valley on Monday, but remains without a timetable to rejoin the team. He'll be used in a bullpen role when healthy.

Brett Myers (elbow) will resume a rehab assignment with Short-Season Mahoning Valley on Monday.

Myers will throw only one inning, which could mean he's transitioning to reliever. The Indians had been considering the possibility in hopes that the righty would have a better chance of staying healthy that way. There's no timetable for Myers' return.
Sun, Jun 23, 2013 01:21:00 PM

Indians transferred RHP Brett Myers from the 15-day disabled list to the 60-day disabled list.

The move was made to clear room on the 40-man roster for John McDonald. Myers has been out since late April with a mild UCL tear and was shut down last month after he felt renewed soreness. He's throwing again but could possibly return as a reliever.

Brett Myers (elbow) resumed a throwing program Friday.

Myers has been out since late April with a mild UCL tear and was shut down last month after he felt renewed soreness in a rehab start at Double-A Akron. While it's a step in the right direction, there's still no clear timetable for his return.
Sat, Jun 8, 2013 01:48:00 PM

Brett Myers (elbow) could resume a throwing program in 4-5 days.

Myers, out since late April with a mild UCL tear, felt renewed soreness last week after going four-plus innings in a rehab start at Double-A Akron. He remains without a timetable to rejoin the Indians, and could be used as a reliever upon his return.

Brett Myers could be converted into a reliever if his right elbow issues persist for much longer.

Myers was diagnosed in late April with a mild UCL tear and felt renewed soreness last week after going four-plus innings in a rehab start at Double-A Akron. "We'd like to let him come back as a starter," Indians manager Terry Francona told reporters on Wednesday. "Saying that, I guess if it ever got to the point where we thought he could handle being a reliever, maybe that's something we would look at, just out of common sense."
Thu, May 30, 2013 11:24:00 AM

Brett Myers (elbow) has been shut down 5-7 days.

He will then try to resume his throwing program. Myers was diagnosed with a mild UCL tear in his right elbow back in late April and felt renewed discomfort while making a rehab start last week. Surgery is still on the table. It'll be an extended absence no matter what.
Tue, May 28, 2013 05:29:00 PM

Brett Myers felt some right elbow crankiness following his latest minor league rehab start.

Myers has been sent to Cleveland to be reevaluated and will not make his scheduled rehab outing on Monday. This could obviously be a big setback for the right-hander, who had been nearing a return to the Indians. He was diagnosed with a mild UCL tear in late April.
