(WNFL) - Brewers' left-hander Tom Gorzelanny has had surgery on his throwing shoulder. Assistant general manager Gord Ash said the operation cleaned up the veteran's acromion bone. Gorzelanny will not return until mid-March, but Ash says it's possible he can be ready for the start of next season. Gorzelanny did not pitch after September second, due to a tight shoulder. Ash said the Brewers were hoping that physical therapy would solve the problem -- but it didn't, so the operation was scheduled last week. Gorzelanny pitched in 43 games this year, including 10 starts. He went 3-and-6 with a three-point-nine-oh-E-R-A. Gorzelanny is signed through 2014. He was the only left-handed pitcher on the Milwaukee roster until Will Smith was traded from Kansas City last week for Norichika Aoki.
