Gorzelanny has been sidelined since the last week of May with inflammation in his throwing shoulder. He was shelled for five hits and four earned runs in a four-inning rehab start Monday evening at Triple-A Syracuse, but the Nats are going to ignore those results and throw him right back into the fire.
Gorzelanny had a quality 4.25 ERA, 1.23 WHIP and 58 strikeouts in 53 innings before landing on the 15-day disabled list. The Nationals optioned right-hander Yunesky Maya back to the Triple-A level on Wednesday afternoon to clear a spot in the starting rotation.
