Gorzelanny cleared waivers and will report to Triple-A Toledo, Anthony Fenech of the Detroit Free Press reports.

After struggling in 24 innings with the Tigers, Gorzelanny was designated for assignment Friday and made his way through waivers. After posting a 1.96 WHIP and a 6.38 ERA in the majors, the 32-year-old will hope to right the ship in Triple-A.

Gorzelanny was designated for assignment on Friday, Anthony Fenech of the Detroit Free Press reports.

He has a 6.75 ERA and 19 strikeouts in 24 innings of relief, so he was certainly expendable when the Tigers were looking to open up a spot on the 40-man roster. Look for him to clear waivers and be sent to Triple-A Toledo.

Gorzelanny took the loss Tuesday, allowing the winning run to cross the plate in the 14th inning.

The lefty has had his share of trouble this season, and Tuesday was no exception. Gorzelanny now owns an unsightly 6.94 ERA in 24 innings this season. He posted a minuscule 0.86 mark in 21 innings of work last season.

Gorzelanny has allowed eight runs on six hits and five walks over his last 2.2 innings (four appearances).

His last outing (Wednesday) was particularly ugly. He fired just five pitches -- only one of them was a strike -- and surrendered one hit, two earned runs and walk without recording an out. His WHIP now sits at a lofty 1.78 and his ERA has spiked to 6.50.

Gorzelanny has been fairly effective as a lefty specialist coming out of the Tigers' bullpen this season. But he saw his stats skyrocket after giving up four earned runs, two walks and two hits, including a home run, in just 0.2 innings of work in his last appearance.

His 5.06 ERA, 1.56 WHIP and .311 BAA are all largely inflated by that outing. He'll rebound soon -- every pitcher coughs up a hairball now and again, and this Tiger is no different.

Gorzelanny picked up his first decision of the season -- a loss -- on Tuesday night against the Yankees. He entered in the seventh and pitched 1.2 innings of work, giving up one hit, two walks and one earned run alongside two strikeouts.

He will be expected to deliver in late-inning situations now that Joe Nathan is headed to surgery. The circumstances of this game -- 33 degrees F at first pitch -- made gripping the ball real tough. Going forward, Gorzelanny may provide value to those of you in leagues that count holds. This team is going to win a lot of games.

Gorzelanny allowed a run on a hit and a walk in the Tigers' loss to the Yankees on Tuesday night.

Gorzelanny signed with the Tigers on a one-year deal on Tuesday.

Gorzelanny was great working out of the Brewers bullpen in 2014, working to a 0.86 ERA in 23 appearances. Last season was the first as a full time reliever for the 32-year-old, but after his success there a year ago he'll likely be looked at mainly as an option out of the bullpen in Detroit. The lefty has been effective against both sides of the plate, so he could take on more than just a specialist role.

Gorzelanny tossed another scoreless inning Friday night, lowering his season ERA to 0.59.

With just one earned run allowed in 15.1 innings (August 6 against San Francisco), Gorzelanny has become a very nice piece in the Milwaukee bullpen. He's now carrying a 17:2 K:BB for the season, serving as the third left-handed option at the disposal of manager Ron Roenicke.
