 MIAMI (AP) -Philadelphia Phillies closer Brett Myers flew Thursday to the team's spring training complex for an MRI on his strained right shoulder.
Myers left Wednesday's game at Florida in the ninth inning clutching his arm above the elbow. Before departing for Clearwater, Fla., he was examined by team trainer Scott Sheridan, who confirmed the original diagnosis of a strained shoulder.
Myers threw 27 pitches in the inning and gave up four runs. He said his arm felt weird on his final two pitches, but didn't feel anything pop or tear.
Manager Charlie Manuel said he'll use Antonio Alfonseca, Ryan Madson or Geoff Geary as the closer. Alfonseca has 121 career saves but none since 2002.
``Alfonseca has been pitching pretty good for us, and he's done that (job) before,'' Manuel said.
Myers has six saves in seven chances and a 2.61 ERA since moving to the bullpen.
