Brett Myers May Need Hip Surgery

6:51pm: Ed Price of MLB Fanhouse has a bit more:

"I don't think we can do anything right now," a Phillies official told FanHouse. "I don't think that [Myers injury] hastens it one way or another."

5:17pm: According to Jim Salisbury of the Philadelphia Inquirer:

After having an MRI today, Phillies pitcher Brett Myers was told that there was fraying to the labrum in his right hip, an injury that could require surgery and jeopardize the remainder of his season.

ESPN's Jayson Stark mentioned earlier today that the Phillies are looking everywhere for starters, and have inquired about Roy Oswalt, Jake Peavy, Brandon Webb, Roy Halladay, Doug Davis, Erik Bedard, Cliff Lee, Aaron Harang, Brad Penny, Chris Young and Jason Marquis.  Ruben Amaro Jr. might want to acquire two.

Bad timing for Myers, who is eligible for free agency after the season.
