MLB Injury News:
Milwaukee Brewers' left-handed pitcher Tom Gorzelanny had to exit last night's game against the Washington Nationals in the second inning after being hit by a line drive off the bat of Jayson Werth.
As reported by Kevin Massoth of MLB.com,
"The ball struck Gorzelanny's elbow before it caromed toward the
third-base line. The lefty took a few steps toward it but stopped short,
showing obvious pain. Gorzelanny had his elbow checked out by trainers
but could not throw a warmup pitch before exiting with what was later
called a bruised left elbow. X-rays taken of the elbow were negative."
Alfredo Figaro, who was recently on the disabled list for a month with a strained right oblique, replaced Gorzelanny in the third inning. It was only Figaro's third appearance since coming off the disabled list.
Gorzelanny, who has been a reliever and spot starter during his career, entered last night's game with a 2-4 record and 2.83 earned run average this season. For his career, he has appeared in 230 games with 116 starts. He has a record of 46-49 with an earned run average of 4.28.

MILWAUKEE -- Whether it was a coincidence or not, Rickie Weeks hit better when Scooter Gennett was up in the big leagues breathing down his neck.
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...

It has been just over one week since Major League Baseball and Milwaukee Brewers' star left fielder Ryan Braun came to an agreement that would see him suspended for the remainder of the 2013 season.
