The Phillies have placed lefty reliever J.C. Romero on the 15-day disabled list due to a left calf strain. Romero has pitched in 7 games (0 starts) for the Phillies so far this year and he is 0-0 with a 3.86 ERA and a 1.29 WHIP. The Phillies have recalled 28-year old lefty reliever Mike Zagurski to replace Romero in the pen. He pitched in 3 games (0 starts) in AAA-ball this year and he is 1-0 with 1 save, a 0.00 ERA and a 0.90 WHIP. He only gave up 2 hits and 1 walk in his first 3 1/3 innings in the minors this year and he had 7 whiffs, so he was outstanding in the minors. The Phillies hope that Zagurski can handle replacing Romero until he returns to health.
