Myers Likely to Retire, Jays Call Up Huckaby
He rejuvenated his career when he returned to the Jays in 2003, as he batted .303 in 121 games and set career marks in Hits (101), Home Runs (15), Runs (51) and RBI's for (52). Myers though, suffered a season ending injury in the first week of the 2004 season when he severely sprained his ankle rounding third base in Minnesota. He had pondered retirement at the end of last season but didn't want to go out that way. He wanted to leave on his own terms, and see if he had anything to offer a team before finally calling it quits.
After going 1-for-12 in limited time this season, it became clear that the spark had left and Greg Myers days as a major league baseball player were coming to an end. If his playing days are over, he finishes with a .255 average, 776 Hits, 87 HR's and 396 RBI in 1108 games played.
Ken Huckaby, who should be familiar to Jays fans and baseball fans in New York for his infamous play involving Derek Jeter at 3rd base, returns to the organization after splitting last season with the Baltimore Orioles and Texas Rangers. Huckaby had signed with Toronto during the off-season agreeing to a minor league contract. Huckaby was told when he signed that there was a good probability that he would begin in Syracuse to start the season, but that there was also a good chance that he could be called up in case Myers wasn't ready to go. So now he'll get his chance, backing up Gregg Zaun, spelling him possibly when facing left-handed pitching.
