Ryan is a Farmington native who enjoys all things basketball, particularly when it involves the Detroit Pistons. He spends much of his free time combing through NBA archives and curating footage of meaningless late-90's regular season performances for mass consumption.

The Detroit Tigers announced this morning that they have signed lefthanded relief pitcher Tom Gorzelanny to a one-year contract.

The 32-year-old Gorzelanny returned from shoulder surgery to make 23 appearances for the Milwaukee Brewers last season out of the bullpen, churning out a 0.86 ERA and a 1.43 WHIP. However, according to MLB.com’s Jason Beck, the majority of his appearances were not of the end-of-game clutch variety, for what it’s worth.

Most of those appearances came in lower-pressure situations. Gorzelanny entered with the Brewers trailing in 20 of his 23 appearances last year, 10 times by three runs or more.

For his career, Gorzelanny has allowed a .231 average to left-handed batters, including 18-for-98 (.184) with 28 strikeouts with Milwaukee in 2013.

With their 40-man roster already full, the Tigers made a move to accommodate the acquisition of Gorzelanny by designating long reliever Luke Putkonen for assignment. Putkonen missed the majority of the 2014 season after undergoing surgery to remove bone spurs from his elbow.
