J.C. Romero has been placed on the 15-day disabled list with a right calf strain. The Phillies have recalled Mike Zagurski from Triple-A Lehigh Valley.
Romero injured his calf in last night's game against the Brewers. He had posted a 3.86 ERA over seven appearances. Zagurski, 28, hasn't been scored upon in three games for the IronPigs, allowing two hits and seven strikeouts in 3.1 innings. Last season, the left-hander notched 71 strikeouts in 52.1 innings. He also pitched well in spring training. Beerleaguer: Nothing to add to this other than Antonio Bastardo suddenly becomes the third-most important reliever in the Phillies' bullpen. Zagurski won't see action in critical spots, and Bastardo was only starting to be eased into those situations. The best scenario has Romero returning soon while Bastardo holds his ground in a heightened role.
