Washington - The Washington Nationals have reportedly acquired left-hander Tom Gorzelanny from the Chicago Cubs for three minor leaguers.

For Gorzelanny, MLB.com reports, Chicago is expected to receive outfielder Michael Burgess, right-hander A.J. Morris and left-hander Graham Hicks -- none are considered to be top-10 prospects.

Gorzelanny became expendable after the Cubs acquired Matt Garza from Tampa Bay earlier this month and will compete for a rotation spot with seven other Washington pitchers

The 28-year-old is coming off a season in which he went 7-9 with a 4.09 ERA in 29 appearances (23 starts). He has a career ERA of 4.68 in 118 games and a 36-37 record.
