Brewers Injury Update: Tom Gorzelanny still not ready to return

By on 6/01/2014 06:00:00 AM

The Milwaukee Brewers got shutout by the Chicago Cubs on Saturday by the score of 8-0. A pitching staff that is sixth in the league in ERA gave up ten hits and two home runs in the loss. Even with the defeat, the Brewers are 33-23, three games ahead of the St. Louis Cardinals in the National League Central. On the injury front, left-handed reliever Tom Gorzelanny continues to struggle to come back from surgery last December.

Tom Haudricourt, who covers the Brewers for the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel, tweeted the following on Gorzelanny.
Gorzelanny underwent surgery in December to repair damage to his rotator cuff and labrum.  He originally was hoping to return by the end of April, but his shoulder was slow to respond. I reported on May 7 that Brewers General Manager Gord Ash said Gorzelanny will need about a month before he is ready to return to the Major Leagues. In two rehab appearances, Gorzelanny has given up a run in 3 1/3 innings.

Gorzelanny was drafted in the second round of the 2003 amateur draft by the Pittsburgh Pirates.  He made his Major League debut in 2005 and has pitched for the Pirates, Cubs, Nationals and Brewers during his nine-year career. He was 3-6 with a 3.90 ERA last season. In 236 career games, Gorzelanny is 47-51 with a 4.36 ERA.
