Myers, 30, has served a starting pitcher for the majority of his career. Out of 307 total appearances, 249 of those, including 33 of 34 last season, were starts.

In 2006, Myers served as the Philadelphia Phillies everyday closer, posting 21 saves and a 4.33 ERA. Last season for the Astros, Meyers posted a 7-14 record with a 4.46 ERA. Just one year earlier, he posted a 14-8 record with a 3.14 ERA.

The right-hander’s absence in the team’s rotation will require the Astros to find a way to fill the average 219.2 innings pitched Myers has produced over the past two seasons.
