Gorzelanny, who was hit by a line drive to the elbow on August 3 and returned from the injury on August 11, has a 3.90 earned run average in 10 starts and 33 relief appearances this season.  Last season with the Washington Nationals, he was 4-2 with a 2.88 earned run average, in 72 innings pitched.  A veteran of four Major League teams, Gorzelanny is 47-51 with a 4.34 earned run average in 820 1/3 innings pitched.
