BRADENTON, Fla. (93-7 THE FAN) — After stints with the Philadelphia Phillies and, last season, the Arizona Diamondbacks, lefthander Mike Zagurski is trying to win a spot in the Pirates’ bullpen.
As we mentioned earlier, with a name like Zagurski, not to mention his rather portly physique, the 6’0″, 240 pound lefty has a chance to be a cult hero in Pittsburgh, but first he has to make the Pirates and so far so good.
In four appearances this Grapefruit League season, Zagurski has been perfect. Twelve batters up, 12 batters down.
“It’s going good so far,” Zagurski says. “I’ve been able to get ahead of guys and the breaking ball has been a little better.
