Nationals Make Gorzelanny Swap with Cubs Official
WASHINGTON (AP) -- The Washington Nationals have finalized their trade to acquire left-hander Tom Gorzelanny from the Chicago Cubs for three minor league prospects.

The Nationals said Wednesday they sent outfielder Michael Burgess, right-hander A.J. Morris and left-hander Graham Hicks to Chicago.

The 28 year old Gorzelanny is 36-37 with a 4.68 ERA in six major league seasons with the Cubs and Pittsburgh Pirates. He went 7-9 with a 4.09 ERA in 23 starts and six relief appearances last year, and the Cubs dealt him after obtaining starter Matt Garza in a trade with Tampa Bay.

Before the trade to the Nationals became official, Gorzelanny avoided arbitration by agreeing to a $2.1 million, one year deal with the Cubs.
