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.

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.

The Milwaukee Brewers placed left-hander Tom Gorzelanny on the 15-day disabled list, retroactive to May 8, with shoulder tendinitis in his pitching arm after Saturday's 13-7 loss to the Cincinnati Reds.

As of this writing, the Brewers pitching staff is last in the league in earned run average, as well as runs allowed. While the bullpen has had its ups and downs, the starting pitching has been remarkably ineffective – with the notable exception of Kyle Lohse. Although he’s cooled down somewhat, Lohse is still the only...
Recently, Diane Firstman, creator and curator of the fabulous Value Over Replacement Grit baseball site on ESPN Sweetspot Network and a favorite of mine, was kind enough to anagram the names of some current and former Milwaukee Brewers players and managers. She made quite a few for the Brewers Bar to use, so this will be split up into a series.
Not sure what an anagram is? An...
It wasn't the best of weeks on the field for the Milwaukee Brewers, but young shortstop Jean Segura continued to open eyes in his first full season in the big leagues.
Segura was named the National League's Player of the Week after hitting .500 with a league-best .950 slugging percentage over the week of May 6-12.
The 23-year-old had multiple hits in five of Milwaukee&...
Yet again, Yovani Gallardo didn't look like himself, and now it's getting concerning.
The usually reliable Gallardo put together another frustrating outing Friday night against Cincinnati, throwing 100 pitches while lasting just four innings, walking five and allowing three runs in Milwaukee's 4-3 loss to the Reds.
"Command obviously sucked," Gallardo said...
At 15-20, the Milwaukee Brewers still could rescue their season. But after going 1-9 in their last 10 games, the team has incited all kinds of despair among a fan base that is restless for a winner. Fans waited all winter for baseball and so far most of what the Brewers have done on the field hardly qualifies as baseball at all. Technically...
The back cover of Brewers beat writer Tom Haudricourt’s latest book, 100 Things Brewers Fans Should Know & Do Before They Die, bills it as “The Ultimate Resource Guide for True Brewers Fans.” It certainly is a resource, but true Brewers fans won’t find much in the book they don’t already know. The format of the book – a breezy list of events...
Brewers first baseman Corey Hart is making slow but steady progress in his
rehabilitating efforts to return to the Brewers’ lineup. Hart began hitting in a cage
as May started, and on May 12, he began running steadily on a treadmill. MLB.com’s
McCalvy reported that Hart is eligible to come off of the
disabled list on May 30, but it could take him until...
The starters have been abysmal in this series between the Cincinnati Reds and Milwaukee Brewers, and two more with less than imposing ERAs are up next.
These NL Central bullpens have combined for 17 innings in the first two games, but relief may not be in sight with the Brewers' Wily Peralta set to face the Reds' Bronson Arroyo in Sunday's finale in Cincinnati.
In order to have any chance to compete for a division title, the Milwaukee Brewers are going to have to beat the two teams currently sitting at the top of the division.
As the calendar heads toward Memorial Day, the Brewers are clearly not playing as well as St. Louis and Cincinnati, having lost seven straight and nine of 10 to the two favorites in the National League Central.
Lake Erie Crushers shortstop Juan Sanchez may have taken what fans perceive as a step back from the Nashville Sounds, the Triple-A affiliate of the Milwaukee Brewers, to a Frontier League team in Avon, OH, but he’s still hungry.
At least, he better be.
There are two groups of players that find themselves in the Frontier League, those who were undrafted coming out of college looking...
Don Lutz hit his first career home run, a three-run drive off the right-field foul pole in the second inning that led the Cincinnati Reds over the Milwaukee Brewers 5-1 Sunday for a three-game sweep.
Lutz, who made his big league debut on April 29, homered off Wily Peralta (3-3), and pinch-hitter Xavier Paul homered in the seventh, sending Milwaukee to its fourth straight loss and...
The Pirates have played three four game series thus far. They have lost the first game in every single one of them. They have also won every single series. That’s a pretty tough thing to do. Hopefully they do it again against the hated Brewers. This ten game homestand is about as big as can…
