Gorzelanny scratched from start

Tom Gorzelanny was supposed to start in the Pirates' Grapefruit League opener against the Phillies today, but according to the Pirate radio announcers, he was scratched because of tightness in his throwing shoulder. They kind of pooh-pahed it and said he might pitch Sunday in relief, but as Mike keeps telling you, be wary of young hurlers who were overworked last year. (Gorzelanny clocked 201.2 innings in 2007, his first full season in the Majors.)
