Brewers place Burgos on DL, activate Gorzelanny
The Brewers placed starting pitcher Hiram Burgos on the 15-day disabled list on Friday with what the team calls right shoulder impingement.
The move made room on the roster for left-handed reliever Tom Gorzelanny who was activated from the 15-day DL with left shoulder tendinitis.
Burgos’ ERA rose from 3.00 to 6.44 in his last three starts after allowing 15 earned runs combined in losses to the Reds and Pirates and a no decision against the Dodgers. The righty lasted just 3 1/3 innings against Los Angeles on Tuesday, allowing six hits and two earned runs.
