One down already

According to the PG, Tom Gorzelanny won't start today against the Phillies in the Spring Opener as he's got a "stiff shoulder." Huntington says this:

"If this were April 2 or Aug. 1 or any date in the regular season, Tom would be making his start," general manager Neal Huntington said this morning. "But it's spring training, and there's no reason to rush anything. This is minor. It's not even going to affect his spring preparation."
I say that Gorzelanny was abused last year by Jim Tracy and if things keep going like this, I'm going to be surprised if he pitches 125 innings this year.
