Tom Gorzelanny returns to the roster following a DL stint resulting from left shoulder tendinitis. Hiram Burgos is placed on the DL to clear a spot for Gorzelanny, and Alfredo Figaro will start in Burgos' place on Tuesday.

Heading into tonight's game, the Brewers have made a roster move:

Tom Gorzelanny had been placed on the DL due to right shoulder tendinitis, but had progressed well enough that he didn't need a rehab assignment or to be on the DL longer than the required 15 days. He should be available for tonight's game against the Pirates.

To clear a roster spot for Gorzelanny, Hiram Burgos was placed on the 15-day DL with a right shoulder impingement. This is the first news about any injury for Burgos, so we will have to wait for more details. The expectation was that he would be returned to Nashville once Gorzelanny was activated.

EDIT: Adam McCalvy has also reported that Alfredo Figaro will start on Tuesday against the Twins, as long as he is not needed in relief before then.
