Chicago Cubs pitcher Tom Gorzelanny took a comebacker off his left (pitching) hand today. After trying to make a play on the Jose Tabata ball, Gorzelanny went to the dirt, and was pulled from the game. X-rays haven’t shown much yet.

X-rays of Tom Gorzelanny’s left hand were inconclusive Wednesday but did show there was no displacement and the Cubs pitcher will have a CT scan on Thursday. Gorzelanny was hit by a line drive by Pittsburgh’s Jose Tabata in the third inning Wednesday. The pitcher will undergo more tests on Thursday once the swelling has subsided. Muskat Ramblings.

Inconclusive does not necessarily mean his hand is jacked; it could just be incredibly swollen. If Gorzelanny is out for an appreciable period of time, Casey Coleman may get a reprieve to stay in the rotation when Carlos Silva returns next week.
