Madson Activated, Zagurski Optioned

The Phillies today announced that reliever Ryan Madson has been activated after missing much of the seasons first half after kicking a chair and breaking his toe.  LHP Mike Zagurski was optioned back to Lehigh Valley after making 5 appearances for the big club and going 0-0 with a 3.38 ERA in his 5.1 innings of work. Zagurski struck out an impressive 8 hitters in his time with the Phils.  Lehigh Valley will have multiple decisions to make in regards to their pitching staff with JA Happ joining the team to start tomorrow and Zagurski returning most likely by the end of the weekend.
