Phillies Not Interested in Fultz, Zagurski's Season May be Over

Just a couple of quick Phillies news items as we close in on Opening Day:

*Phillies don't want Fultz
Following up on yesterday's story, Aaron Fultz was released by the Cleveland Indians, but, according to assistant GM Ruben Amaro, the Phillies aren't interested in adding the former Phillie to the bullpen. It seems like the perfect fit: a lefty who would basically cost the Phillies nothing. They must have someone else in their plans.

*Zagurski may need surgery It may be a while before we see former fan favorite Mike Zagurski pitching for the Phillies again. According to Phillies.com, Zagurski may need Tommy John surgery, meaning he would miss all of the 2008 season and wouldn't be able to pitch again for at least a year. Zagurski has been having trouble with his elbow during the spring, and is currently on the DL. Zagurski didn't figure to be a big part of the bullpen this year, but it he could have developed into a solid bullpen option down the road. This surgery will be a huge setback for his develpment.
