Due to an injured shoulder, Myers did not pitch in 1999. He is still currently on the disabled and may not pitch for the rest of the 2000 season. The Padres are seeking $4 million for the 1999 season as well as unspecified punitive damages and legal fees. Lloyd’s has 20 days to file a response to the suit.
