The Dodgers have officially placed first baseman Adrian Gonzalez on the 10-day disabled list and activated center fielder Joc Pederson.
Today, the #Dodgers reinstated Joc Pederson from the 10-day DL and placed Adrián González on the 10-day DL with right elbow soreness.

Pederson is returning from a groin strain that has sidelined him for almost two weeks.
Gonzalez has been battling injuries since before the season started. The injuries appear to have caught up to him and have hindered him throughout the start of the 2017 season.
This will be the first time that Gonzalez has been placed on the disabled list over the entirety of his 14-year career.
There it is. First DL stint in Adrian Gonzalez's 14 seasons. https://t.co/j0MmMCrhnJ

Dave Roberts told MLB Network that he was leaning toward putting Gonzalez on the disabled list this morning.
