The Phillies have traded Mike Zagurski to the Arizona Diamondbacks for a player to be named later or cash considerations, according to Zagurski's agent, Marc Kligman.

The lefthander Zagurski was designated for assignment by the Phillies last Saturday. He pitched in four major-league games this season and allowed two runs on three hits. Zagurski finishes his Phillies career with a 6.82 ERA in 37 games over three seasons.

He was passed on the lefthanded relief depth chart by Juan Perez during the season. And when the Phillies wanted to add another lefty this month, they opted for Joe Savery over Zagurski.

The 28-year-old had no options remaining, which meant the Phillies would have to keep him on the roster coming out of spring training in 2012 or cut him loose.

Arizona added Zagurski to its active roster.
