CLEARWATER, Fla. (AP) _ Former New York Mets and Philadelphia reliever Tug McGraw was hospitalized Thursday for tests.

McGraw, 58, has been a special spring training pitching instructor for the Phillies the last two years. The team did not disclose the reason for the tests.

In his 20-year career in the major leagues, McGraw was 96-92 with a 3.14 ERA and 180 saves. He pitched for the Mets from 1965 to 1974 and the Phillies from 1975 to 1984, and won a World Series with each team.

His son, country music star Tim McGraw, was scheduled to take batting practice with the Phillies before Friday's game against Pittsburgh, but the session was canceled.
