Myers undergoes successful hip surgery

Phillies' Myers likely done for season

LOS ANGELES -- The Phillies said right-hander Brett Myers had successful surgery on his right hip on Thursday.

Myers had arthroscopic bony spur and labral debridement. Orthopaedic surgeon and hip specialist Bryan Kelly performed the surgery at Hospital for Special Surgery in Manhattan.

The Phillies said Myers will begin a rehabilitation program on Saturday. He also is expected to begin a long-toss program in approximately three months. That would have him throwing in the beginning of September, which means the chance of him pitching again this season is remote.

Myers, who is a free agent after the season, was 4-3 with a 4.66 ERA in 10 starts this year.

Left-hander Antonio Bastardo took Myers' place in the rotation on Tuesday in San Diego. He allowed four hits, one run and one walk in six innings. He struck out five.
