Mike Zagurski Exercises Opt-Out Clause

Left-hander Mike Zagurski has exercised the opt-out clause in his minor league deal with the Yankees and is now a free agent, according to his agent, Marc Kligman (on Twitter).

The 30-year-old Zagurski allowed 10 runs in six innings with the Pirates this season but has been dominant in Triple-A this season. The former 12th-round pick has a 2.66 ERA with 14.3 K/9 and 4.0 BB/9 in 47 1/3 innings between the Pirates' and Yankees' Triple-A affiliates this season. He's limited opposing left-handers to .244/.310/.321 batting line in the minors.
