Gorzelanny nearing game action

A team with three left-handers already in its bullpen has another nearing a significant step in his return from injury as Brewers reliever Tom Gorzelanny nears a Minor League rehabilitation assignment.

Gorzelanny, who underwent surgery in December to repair damage to his rotator cuff and labrum, had hoped to be in Milwaukee before the end of April, but left shoulder did not cooperate. He is back on track now, and could be assigned to an affiliate in the coming days, assistant GM Gord Ash said.

“He’ll need the full 30 days,” Ash said. “It’s like starting Spring Training again.”

Because of that timeline, the Brewers will not need to make a decision on the make-up of their Major League bullpen for some weeks. Currently, Will Smith, Zach Duke and seldom-used Rule 5 Draft pick Wei-Chung are all active for the Brewers.

Brewers officials won’t worry themselves about the potential crowd there until Gorzelanny gets close to Major League-ready.
