Diamondbacks get Mike Zagurski from Phillies for PTBNL

Sep 23, 2011, 5:32 PM EDT


Mike Zagurski has posted some excellent numbers in the minors, but the Phillies have been hesitant to give the 28-year-old reliever an extended opportunity and have now traded him to the Diamondbacks for a player to be named later or cash.

Zagurski has appeared in just 12 games for the Phillies during the past two seasons after a 25-game stint with them as a rookie in 2007, but the left-hander has a 2.88 ERA and 145 strikeouts in 116 innings at Triple-A.

Arizona designated Esmerling Vasquez for assignment to make room on the 40-man roster for Zagurski.

    They’ve tried to give him chances…he just has not impressed in any of the opportunities afforded him. They are clearly higher on Savery than they are of him. Don’t blame them either.

    I hope Zakursky doesn’t give away any Phillies secrets…we don’t need another Binoculargate…
