9/2 Gorzelanny to miss start
Cubs pitcher Tom Gorzelanny will miss his next start after he was hit on the left hand by a line drive by the Pirates Jose Tabata. A CT scan Thursday of Gorzelanny’s hand showed a small incomplete hairline fracture underneath the pinkie finger, which is stable. His next start would have been Tuesday but the swelling needs to subside in his hand before he can resume baseball activities. The Cubs could insert Carlos Silva into the rotation in Gorzelanny’s spot Tuesday against the Astros.
