As good as these 2017 Dodgers have been, they are not even technically at full strength. Three Dodgers that we should be seeing very soon are Rob Segedin, Adrian Gonzalez, and Andre Ethier.
On Friday Dave Roberts told reporters that Adrian Gonzalez and Andre Ethier would be playing for the Rancho Cucamonga Quakes on Saturday.
Adrian Gonzalez and Andre Ethier will play a rehab game with @RCQuakes tomorrow, Dave Roberts said.

This will be Andre Ethier’s first rehab appearacnce of the season, whereas Adrian Gonzalez has been rehabbing out in OKC with Rob Segedin August 3rd. Both have been looking good and showing some power.
Rob Segedin and Adrián González combined to drive in five of the OKC Dodgers' runs in a 6-2 win at Salt Lake! Recap: https://t.co/ytc3biwDDm

Adrian Gonzalez hits a 2 run HR in the 3rd to give OKC a 2-0 lead over the Bees.

The question will be where Adrian Gonzalez and Andre Ethier will be placed once healthy. Cody Bellinger is not coming out of the lineup. The outfield also seems fairly secure, especially with the season that Chris Taylor is having.
Regardless, adding these guys, along with Rob Segedin, will make the team better. Now it’s just up to Dave Roberts to figure out the best way possible to get them in the game without taking out the guys who have carried the team all season long.
