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
