CINCINNATI (AP) -Left-hander Mike Zagurski, one of the Philadelphia Phillies' top minor league pitchers last season, had reconstructive elbow surgery and is expected to be sidelined for up to a year.
The 25-year-old pitcher started the season on the disabled list, still recovering from a torn hamstring that required surgery last August.
Zagurski was honored as the best pitcher in the Phillies' minors last year. A 12th-round pick in the June 2005 draft, he went 0-1 with a 1.39 earned run average in 25 minor league games.
Zagurski made his major league debut in May. He went 1-0 with a 5.91 ERA in 25 relief appearances during two stints with the Phillies.
