Lyon getting closer, and Myers gets stretched out

In McTaggart's afternoon update, we see that Brandon Lyon is getting closer to being ready for game action.

Ed Wade:
I know both Arnsberg and Mills were really happy with what they saw. It seems like he's on schedule at this point. Brad Arnsberg was really raving about his command, not just this outing but overall. He said he could throw his curveball for strikes at will. He was really complimentary of his overall command."

And Brett Myers threw 78 pitches today - 51 for strikes - in his longest outing of the Spring today (4IP, 6H/2ER, 6K:3BB):

"There's plenty of time to get everything working. I'm happy with the way my changeup's coming around and my fastball location is pretty good. I'm pretty happy with the way it went overall because it's getting better from the first time to second time and this."
