LAKEWOOD - Philadelphia Phillies pitcher Brett Myers probably didn't bring his bathing suit here, which meant he didn't spend much time on the field at FirstEnergy Park.

Heavy rains came down for more than an hour before the scheduled 5 p.m. start Sunday, creating awful field conditions and the postponement of the BlueClaws's game against Lake County (Cleveland Indians).

Myers' second rehab start was rescheduled for 5 p.m. today. He declined to speak to reporters after the postponement.

Myers will start the first game of a doubleheader against Lake County for the Phillies' single-A club. He is scheduled to pitch just one inning. Gates open at 4:30 p.m.

The right-handed pitcher had hip surgery in June to repair a torn labrum and born spurs in his right hip and was expected to miss the rest of the season. However, he's surprised many by with his progress - even including a week's delay because of an eye injury he said he sustained falling out of his truck.

Myers had his first rehab assignment last Thursday in Clearwater, Fla. He struck out three and gave up two hits, throwing 19 pitches.

He's in the last year of a three-year $25.75 million deal and becomes a free agent at the end of the season.
