Zagurski has agreed to a minor-league deal with Milwaukee, Jerry Crasnick of ESPN.com reports. Zagurski has bounced around throughout his career, spending time with four other teams before signing with the Brewers. He last saw an opportunity to pitch in the major leagues back in 2013, tossing just 6.1 innings and accruing a 17.05 ERA. Zagurski will look to find his niche in Milwaukee, though he'll likely start the season at Triple-A Colorado Springs.
Zagurski was released by the Tigers earlier this month, Tom Reisenweber of the Erie Times-News reports. Zagurski struggled to find a rhythm with Triple-A Toledo this season, posting a 5.06 ERA over 10.2 innings of relief, but seemed to be turning it around with Double-A Erie, as evidenced by his 2.16 ERA and 25:5 K:BB. Regardless, it wasn't enough for the Tigers, as they put the 34-year-old back on the free agency market. Zagurski, who spent the last two seasons pitching in Japan, hasn't appeared in an MLB game since 2013 and remains unlikely to get such an opportunity in the future.
Zagurski signed a minor-league contract with the Tigers on Sunday, Jerry Crasnick of ESPN.com reports. Following a two-year stint in Japan, Zagurski, 34, will head back to the States with the hope of making it back to the majors. Zagurski, who last appeared in the big leagues in 2013, has made 89 career MLB appearances, splitting time between the Phillies, Diamondbacks, Yankees and Pirates. He'll face long odds of breaking camp with the Tigers and may need to pitch well at the Triple-A level before he has a realistic chance of hitting the majors.
