Tom Gorzelanny injury: Pitcher hit by line drive, X-rays negative

Benny Sieu-USA TODAY Sports

The Brewers starter left tonight's game in the second inning.

For the second time in a week the Brewers have had a starter leave a game early due to injury. On Tuesday it was Yovani Gallardo with a strained hamstring, and tonight Tom Gorzelanny was chased in the second inning after getting hit on the left wrist by a line drive.

Gorzelanny attempted to throw a warmup pitch following the hit but could barely throw and immediately went back to the dugout. He recorded just three outs in the contest before giving way to Alfredo Figaro.

The good news is that Andrew Gruman is reporting that X-rays were negative on Gorzelanny's arm, so it appears we're just looking at a bruise of some kind. We don't have any update at this point on whether he's expected to miss a start. If he does, Figaro is likely to take his place in the rotation.

After throwing a scoreless first inning tonight Gorzelanny has a career-low 2.78 ERA over 38 appearances, including six starts.
