Milwaukee starter Tom Gorzelanny left Friday night's game against the Washington Nationals in the second inning with what the Brewers called a left elbow contusion.
Jayson Werth led off the second with a sharp liner right back at Gorzelanny as the left-hander completed his follow-through. The ball appeared to strike Gorzelanny on the wrist and then rolled toward the third-base line. In obvious pain, he raced after the ball holding his left arm, but made no effort to pick it up.
Gorzelanny was examined by the team's training staff, removed from the game and replaced by Alfredo Figaro.
X-rays were negative and it's unknown if Gorzelanny will miss any time.

The notion Gennett was putting pressure on Weeks may be overblown, but Brewers manager Ron Roenicke starting the veteran second baseman when the match-up favored him certainly helped.
With Weeks back in a slump and his batting average...
