Originally written May 12, 2013 on MLB Injury News:
The Milwaukee Brewers, already lacking in the pitching department, have lost Tom Gorzelanny for at least the next 15 days.  The Brewers reliever was having a solid season, but he has been placed on the disabled list as of yesterday. According to Adam McCalvy of MLB.com, the Brewers have placed Gorzelanny on the DL with what is being classified as a shoulder injury. In a surprise move, #Brewers place LHP Tom Gorzelanny on the DL with a shoulder injury. — Adam McCalvy (@AdamMcCalvy) May 11, 2013 The official diagnosis after initial word of the DL stint is shoulder tendinitis.  Gorzelanny will work on keeping his arm strong without the rigors of pitching every other night or so.  Rest is the most important this for tendinitis issues.  The Brewers hope to have him back in the minimum number of days allowed - 15 for this stint. Milwaukee has recalled Mike Fiers to take Gorzelanny's spot on the 25-man roster.  Fiers has enough Major League experience to be able to slide into the bullpen without much issue.  In his career, he has made 28 appearances and has a 3.94 ERA. Gorzelanny, a veteran of nine years, has both starting and bullpen experience.  In his career, he is 45-45 with a 4.36 ERA.  However, this season he has posted a 2.30 ERA in 18 appearances.  Last season, he posted a 2.88 ERA in 45 appearances.
