Adrian Gonzalez (2012-Present)
It will be up to the newest No. 23 Adrian Gonzalez and this current group of Dodgers to take the team back to a place it hasn’t been since ’88, the World Series. He quickly made an impression on his new club by hitting a 3-run home run, connecting on the second pitch he saw as a Dodger.
All-in-all, Gonzalez is hitting .250 with a home run and six RBIs in five games, but is expected to rise. His presence, combined with that of Hanley Ramirez, Matt Kemp and Andre Ethier, are predicted to take over the National League.
The month of August has seen Gonzalez drive in 28 runs, a number that could be equaled in September if all continues to go well.
But will he follow in the footsteps of his predecessors, the bearers of the famous No. 23? Only time will tell.
