GARY, Ind. — The Gary SouthShore RailCats activated right-handed pitcher Sam Myers from the Disabled List before game one of Thursday’s doubleheader.

Myers allowed two runs on four hits and a walk in 1.1 innings in his season debut and is expected to make his first professional start in game one of Thursday’s doubleheader vs. the Chicago Dogs. Myers re-signed with Gary on Jan. 8, 2018, after signing his first professional baseball contract with Gary on Aug. 7, 2017.
