Brewers manager Ron Roenicke says his team will get lefty Tom Gorzelanny back from the disabled list on Saturday.
Mar 12, 2014, 1:15 PM EDT
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…

The Brewers have placed lefty Tom Gorzelanny on the disabled list with shoulder tendinitis, per MLB.com’s Adam McCalvy. They have recalled right-hander Mike Fiers. Gorzelanny posted a 2.30 ERA in 15.2 innings out of the bullpen. Fiers, meanwhile, allowed six runs in five innings in his only start on April 6 and allowed one run…

The Brewers’ offseason opened with speculation about a push for Josh Hamilton. 3 1/2 months later, their biggest pickup has been Tom Gorzelanny. Mark Attanasio’s Brewers won 96 games and went to the NLCS in 2011, and while the team lost Prince Fielder afterwards, it was able to bring in Aramis Ramirez as a replacement.…

Nearly two weeks after agreeing to a one-year deal with reliever Mike Gonzalez the Brewers actually announced the deal, which is worth $2.25 million plus $400,000 in potential incentives. Gonzalez joins fellow free agent signing Tom Gorzelanny as the new left-handers in the Brewers’ bullpen and threw 36 innings with a 3.03 ERA and 39/16…

After watching Sean Burnett, Mike Gonzalez and Tom Gorzelanny all sign elsewhere this offseason, the Nationals are in the market for a left-handed reliever. The pickings are starting to thin out, but Dan Kolko of MASNSports.com reports that J.P. Howell remains the club’s top choice in free agency. Howell, who turns 30 in April, posted…

We’ll be updating this one throughout the offseason. Players are listed based on their ranking in the Top 111 Free Agents. At the bottom is a listing of free agents who signed before the ranking came out, and we’ll be adding signings of players who didn’t make the top 111 as they come in. (Update:…

Tom Gorzelanny has signed a two-year, $6 million deal with the Brewers pending a physical exam, according to Tom Haudricourt of the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel. Gorzelanny, who was non-tendered by the Nationals three weeks ago, isn’t expected in town to take the physical exam until tomorrow, so Haudricourt reports that the deal may not be…

After spending most of this year in the minors Zach Duke pitched well for the Nationals as a September call-up and Amanda Comak of the Washington Times reports they’ve re-signed the left-hander to a major-league deal. Prior to joining the Nationals’ bullpen down the stretch Duke had been starting at Triple-A and 168 of his…

Here’s the official list of Friday’s non-tenders: American League Angels: none Athletics: OF Jermaine Mitchell Mitchell had already been designated for assignment. He had a breakthrough 2011 in Triple-A, hitting .302/.401/.453, but he regressed to .252/.345/.386 for Sacramento last season. Astros: none Blue Jays: C Bobby Wilson Wilson is minor league contract material. The 29-year-old…

The Nationals have scratched Gio Gonzalez from his final regular season start tonight after clinching the NL East title last night. Washington is still fighting Cincinnati for the No. 1 seed, but manager Davey Johnson has decided that resting Gonzalez for a Game 1 start in the NLDS is more important. Tom Gorzelanny will take…

Saturday’s Nationals-Dodgers game had it all. Nats ace Stephen Strasburg fanned nine batters and yielded just one run over seven stellar frames. Nats phenom Bryce Harper made his major league debut, tallying his first hit (a double to center), his first RBI (on a sacrifice fly) and showing off his elite arm with a missile…

Sometimes a relief appearance is more about soaking up innings than actually preventing runs, which Tom Gorzelanny found out the hard way last night. Gorzelanny entered the game in the sixth inning following an abbreviated Edwin Jackson start and the first seven Astros batters he faced went single, fielder’s choice, single, single, single, single, double.…

Stephen Strasburg held the Astros scoreless into the third, only to give up two runs in 2 2/3 innings in his spring debut. Strasburg struck out three and walked none. He allowed a solo homer to Chris Snyder and a double to Jordan Schafer in the third. Schafer came around to score off Tom Gorzelanny…

The Nationals may have disappointed some by failing to make a big run at the top three free agents, but a vastly improved rotation could make them surprise contenders in the NL East. Rotation Gio Gonzalez – L Edwin Jackson – R Jordan Zimmermann – R John Lannan – L Stephen Strasburg – R Bullpen…
Feb 2, 2012, 6:35 PM EDT
The idea already made plenty of sense. Now it seems like the obvious choice with Edwin Jackson getting inserted into Washington’s rotation. Adding Jackson to a rotation that already included Stephen Strasburg, Gio Gonzalez, Jordan Zimmermann and John Lannan gives the Nationals seven viable starters, with Chien-Ming Wang and Ross Detwiler currently in reserve (Tom Gorzelanny could…

Here’s the official list of players non-tendered prior to the Monday midnight deadline: American League Baltimore: OF/DH Luke Scott, LHP Jo-Jo Reyes, RHP Willie Eyre Scott went from hitting .284/.368/.535 during an excellent 2010 season to .220/.301/.402 in 209 at-bats during a 2011 season shortened by shoulder surgery. The Orioles could re-sign him for significantly less…
