    Tigers relievers see action Saturday in blowout loss

    Tigers relief pitchers Joba Chamberlain and Tom Gorzelanny were able to get some extra work in Saturday against the White Sox in the 12-3 loss. Both worked a scoreless inning, with Gorzelanny recording two strikeouts in his appearance. "The thing is we've had one guy pitch however many days, which is great," said Gorzelanny to MLive.com. "I'm happy with that -- it means our starters are going deep and we're winning ballgames. I think everyone would like to get in there just to not only get work in, but save the rest of the guys. "You want to get guys throw a few innings and save the rest of the bullpen. When they call and say we need to get you in there, I just try to do my job and get out of there as quick as possible." Manager Brad Ausmus chalked it up to the ebbs and flows of how the starting pitchers do. "It's tough to stay sharp when you've got starters going eight innings," Ausmus said. "As a reliever, you don't get a chance to get into a game situation. I don't read too much into what happened today."

    Tom Gorzelanny's rehab outing Friday 'pivotal'

    Brewers pitcher Tom Gorzelanny will start for Triple-A Nashville Friday, in what assistant general manager Gord Ash told MLB.com was a "pivotal" outing in his recovery from a shoulder injury. Gorzelanny is nearing the end of his rehab assignment, and Friday's appearance is important because he is expected to toss more pitches than he has yet. He will be stretched out to 35 pitches, with his rehab assignment set to expire Thursday, and the team isn't sure whether he is ready for the majors. "Well, he's continued to still report some stiffness, and if he continues to report that, the ability not to get loose, then we'll have to bring him back from the rehab and just leave him on the DL for a while," Ash said. "The goal, obviously, is to get him [back on the active roster]."
