As recently as two weeks ago Tom Gorzelanny said his recovery from shoulder surgery was going well and he expected to be ready for Opening Day, but now the Brewers left-hander is expected to begin the season on the disabled list.
Gorzelanny was shut down in September and underwent December surgery, with manager Ron Roenicke telling Tom Haudricourt of the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel that his recovery schedule just doesn’t leave enough time before the regular season begins.
Gorzelanny signed a two-year, $6 million deal with the Brewers as a free agent last offseason and had a solid year split between the rotation and bullpen with a 3.90 ERA and 83/31 K/BB ratio in 85 innings.
