A left-handed starting pitcher Tom Gorzelanny broke into the majors at age 23 with the Pittsburgh Pirates in late-2005. The next year he was 2-5 with a solid 3.79 ERA in 11 starts.
Upon Further Review:
Tom Gorzelanny is rated one of the top prospects in the National League. He throws a fastball that approaches 92 mph from a deceptive motion that includes turning his back on the batter. His bag of pitches includes a nice slider and a changeup, which he moves to both sides of the plate.
On April 4 2007 Tom Gorzelanny started and won the Pirates third game of the season. He held the Astros to 2 earned runs, on 7 hits, 4 Ks, 1 walk in 5 innings, before being relieved by Shawn Chancon, Matt Capps and closer Salomon Torres, who registered his third consecutive save in Pittsburgh first three games.
