Romero To DL, Zagurski Recalled

PHILADELPHIA (CBS) — The Phillies placed lefthander J.C. Romero on the 15-day disabled list on Tuesday with a right calf strain.  Romero suffered the injury trying to make a fielding play in the 9th inning of Monday night’s 6-3, 12-inning loss to the Milwaukee Brewers. 

To take Romero’s place on the roster, the Phillies recalled 28-year-old lefthander Mike Zagurski from AAA Lehigh Valley.

Romero is 0-0 with a 3.86 ERA in seven games this season. 

Zagurski has pitched well for the Iron Pigs this season, going 1-0 with a save in three games with a 0.00 ERA.  In 3 1/3 innings he has allowed two hits while striking out seven.
