    • Gorgen receives tough break

      News: Diamondbacks rookie RP Matt Gorgen's season is over before it gets a chance to begin. According to The Arizona Republic, Gorgen needs Tommy John surgery and is done for the season. "It's a tough break, but I'll rehab and get ready for next year," he said. "Hopefully this time next year I'll be throwing again." Gorgen said he felt tightness in his forearm and had an MRI taken -- the results showed the tear. His twin brother Scott, who is in the Cardinals organization, had the same surgery done in October and will begin his throwing program on Monday. "It's one of those things that happens and you've got to deal with it and move on," he said.
      Analysis: Gorgen was acquired last July in the trade that sent RP Chad Qualls to Tampa Bay. Gorgen owns a career 1.45 ERA with 159 strikeouts in 132 1/3 innings in the Rays organization. With him being done for the year, Gorgen holds no Fantasy value in seasonal formats. Owners in keeper leagues should keep an eye on him after his surgery to see if he'd be worth adding in the future.
