Brevard Brew Crew Rehab Tracker: Tom Gorzelanny
Brewers LHP Tom Gorzelanny is the latest Major Leaguer to make his way to the Manatees’ roster on a rehab assignment, following in the footsteps of OF Logan Schafer. Though the left-hander has made just two appearances for Brevard County, early indications are that Gorzelanny is recovering nicely from surgery on his throwing shoulder.
Gorzelanny has held his Florida State League opponents scoreless in four total innings. He has only surrendered two hits, walked one batter and struck out one.
The southpaw’s appearances have been nearly identical. Both times, Gorzelanny has come out of the bullpen to pitch the seventh and eighth innings. Both times, he has allowed just one hit. Unfortunately, the ‘Tees have also lost by one run in both of the games in which Gorzelanny has pitched. The lefty, however, did not factor in either decision.
As of now, there is no official word on when Gorzelanny will return to the Brew Crew or when he might move up to Double- or Triple-A. If he continues to baffle FSL hitters, though, you would imagine the left-hander should be back in Milwaukee before too long.
‘Tees Tidbits: RHP Damien Magnifico tossed a complete game, two-hit shutout this morning against the Jupiter Hammerheads. The ‘Tees held on for a 1-0 win thanks to Magnifico’s gem, which marked the first complete game of his professional career.
Stay tuned to the Manatees Blog for our next Throwback Thursday post, when we will take an in-depth look at Magnifico’s performance and look back at previous Manatees complete games.
