Gorzelanny provides veteran depth for the Brewers pitching staff

The Milwaukee Brewers have reached an agreement on a two-year deal with free-agent left-hander Tom Gorzelanny.

The deal is contingent on Gorzelanny passing a physical.

Gorzelanny was non-tendered by the Washington Nationals a few weeks ago and was entering his final year of arbitration eligibility.

He had a projected salary of $2.8 million before hitting free agency.

Gorzelanny could be used as either a starter or reliever, although was used primarily as a reliever in 2012.

The Brewers don’t have many established starters behind Yovani Gallardo, so it’s quite possible Gorzelanny may take his spot in the backend of the Milwaukee rotation.

Last year, Gorzelanny had a 2.88 ERA  in 72 innings of work and made one start. He made 23 starts for the Cubs in 2010 and 15 for Washington in 2011
