The Los Angeles Dodgers received some good news when Manager Dave Roberts announced Adrian Gonzalez will return to the starting lineup on Saturday. The Dodgers begin a 3-game series vs. the Padres on Friday with pitcher Scott Kazmir on the mound.

Gonzalez left Monday’s game vs. the Angels with lower back tightness and missed the last three games.

Gonzo missing games is rare. In fact, after being left out of the lineup vs. the Angels on Thursday it was the first time since 2005 that he missed three consecutive games.

Gonzo will return to the starting lineup on Saturday, but this means he will miss four straight games for the first time since 2006. According to L.A. Times writer Bill Shaikin, in the last 10 seasons Agon has played at least 156 games.
