Three Pitchers Land on DL

Francisco Rosario, Scott Mathieson and Mike Zagurski are placed on the 15-day disabled list.

Three Pitchers Land on DL


The Phillies today placed righthanders Francisco Rosario and Scott Mathieson and lefthander Mike Zagurski on the 15-day disabled list, retroactive to March 21.

Rosario has a strained right shoulder. He was 0-1 with a 5.91 ERA in four appearances this spring. His trip to the DL leaves Clay Condrey, J.D. Durbin and Travis Blackley competing for potentially two bullpen jobs -- unless the Phillies decide to go with 11 pitchers, which would leave one spot open -- with Vic Darensbourg and Gary Knotts also in camp.

Mathieson is recovering from an ulnar nerve transposition in his right elbow. He spent all of last season on the major league disabled list recovering from Tommy John surgery. Zagurski is recovering from right hamstring surgery.
