News: Gorzelanny picked up his first decision of the season -- a loss -- on Tuesday night against the Yankees. He entered in the seventh and pitched 1.2 inning, giving up one hit, two walks and one earned run alongside two strikeouts.
Impact: He'll be expected to deliver in late-inning situations now that Joe Nathan is headed for Tommy John surgery. The circumstances of this game -- 33 degrees at first pitch -- made gripping the ball tough, but Gorzelanny could provide value to fantasy owners in leagues that count holds. This team is going to win a lot of games.
