MILWAUKEE -- Barring a long extra innings game Thursday or Friday, Milwaukee Brewers left-hander Tom Gorzelanny will start Saturday against Philadelphia. With right-hander Marco Estrada going on the 15-day disabled list with a left hamstring strain, the Brewers needed to find a starter for Saturday. Milwaukee is opting to move Gorzelanny to rotation for the time being instead of calling up an arm from the minor leagues. "We're not asking him to go five or six," Brewers manager Ron Roenicke said. "The pitch count, whether he can go 50 or 60, I don't know. We'll look at his innings and look at how many pitches he throws in those innings. But he feels like he's strong enough that he can give us some." A former starter, Gorzelanny made one start last season for Washington, pitching 3-23 innings in a 4-2 win over the Phillies on Oct. 2. Gorzelanny made 15 starts for the Nationals in 2011, but hasn't been a full-time starting pitcher since going 7-9 with a 4.09 ERA in 23 starts for the Cubs in 2010. Signed as a free agent this past winter, Gorzelanny has been a valuable member of Milwaukee's bullpen, posting a 2.01 ERA in 24 relief appearances. As of right now, Gorzelanny's move to the rotation isn't expected to be a long-term solution. "We're going to see how it goes," Roenicke said. "I'm not thinking right now that the next five starts are going to be his. They could be. But that's not what we are thinking right now." Logan honored: Former Milwaukee Braves shortstop Johnny Logan was honored Thursday as the newest member of the Miller Park Walk of Fame. Logan, who played in Milwaukee from 1953-1961, had his granite plaque reveled on the terrace area walkway surrounding Miller Park, and he was honored in a pregame ceremony prior to Milwaukee's game against Philadelphia. "Believe me, this is the biggest honor that I've received," Logan said. "Even though my hometown has a Little League ballpark named Logan Field and they just put a plaque there of my high school and professional thing, getting an honor here in Milwaukee at Miller (Park) is outstanding. To me, I'm proud of being a Milwaukeean." The four-time All-Star hit .268 with 93 home runs and 547 RBI in his 13-year career. Logan was the starting shortstop on the Braves World Series Championship team in 1957 and National League Championship team in 1958. Logan is the first player to be inducted in the Miller Park Walk of Fame since Lew Burdette in 2010.
