The Phillies have recalled lefthander Mike Zagurski from Triple A Lehigh Valley to take the roster spot of Vance Worley, who was sent down yesterday.
Zagurski was 1-0 with a 1.88 ERA, 9 saves and 23 strikeouts in 14.1 innings.
He pitched in two games with the Phillies in April.
Worley turned in two strong starts after Joe Blanton (elbow) went on the disabled list in late-April, holding the Mets to two hits in six scoreless innings and the Nationals to four hits and one run in six innings. His combined numbers in those two starts - 12 innings, six hits, four walks, 12 strikeouts, one run - were impressive. But Blanton returned, forcing Worley to the bullpen. After two appearances as a reliever - he pitched a scoreless inning in one outing and allowed a run, two walks and two hits in three innings in another - the Phillies sent him back down to Lehigh Valley.
