Los Angeles Dodgers’ big first baseman, Adrian Gonzalez has begun rehabbing with Oklahoma City along side teammate, utility man, Rob Segedin.

Gonzalez has been down for several months of this year with a bad back. He has not been the A-Gon that we have grown to love so much. Dave Roberts has been very impressed with the work ethic and progress of Adrian during his slow return. There is no for sure answer as to where he will slot in, but having him healthy to face right-handed pitching could be substantial for the Dodgers come playoff time.

Cody Bellinger was originally called up to sub in for a sore Adrian Gonzalez but Cody’s amazing start worked out so well, that A-Gon was forced onto the DL. Since then, many questions have been asked of Gonzalez’s future in baseball. He has flirted with retirement but has also made it clear that he is working to broaden his game to extend his career. Although Cody Bellinger can play solid outfield, his primary position is first base, and he is continuing to grow there.

 

Rob Segedin, who has only had four at-bats in the majors this year, has been sidelined most of the year with a foot problem, and a wrist injury. It has also been reported that Chris Hatcher will also join the rehab mix on Friday.  He has been down with thoracic inflammation, or back problems.

The Dodgers’ claimed their 76th victory of the year behind the common heroics of Chris Taylor on Thursday night. Taylor went 3 for 5 with a two-run home run. Alex Wood also improved his line to 13-1 after going 6 innings letting go 1 earned run on 7 hits.

    Why are the Dodgers trying to screw up this team by bringing back the worst 4 hole hitter in baseball and also our worst pitcher in Hatcher. I thought we got rid of Hatcher but I guess that was just wishful thinking.
