Two top Dodgers prospects have sustained injuries:
Right-handed pitcher Tony Gonsolin has been placed on the 7-day minor league Injured List at Triple-A Oklahoma City.
RHP Tony Gonsolin was also placed on the Injured List by OKC #Dodgers after his first start back with them on Monday. He gave up four runs on six hits and three walks in 3 2/3 innings for OKC in his first start following his MLB debut last week in AZ

Gonsolin has reportedly has injured his hamstring after the short stint that Bill Plunkett of the Orange County Register alluded to above.
The right-hander made a singular start for the Dodgers this year and tossed 4 innings, allowing 4 earned runs. Tony Smokes has a 3.64 ERA at Oklahoma City this season as well through 29 2/3 innings.
Dodgers’ top catching prospect Will Smith has also been placed on the 7-day Injured List at Oklahoma City. He had missed a decent amount of time there leading up to his placement today.
Will Smith went on the MLB injured list with an oblique he suffered in his last game with Dodgers last week.

Oblique injuries are never good, especially considering that the injury he sustained with the big club has been nagging him for more than a ‘day-to-day’ stint.
Smith has played 9 games and racked up 29 plate appearances in the major leagues in 2019, crushing 3 home runs and copping a 149 wRC+.
He continues to mash at Triple-A Oklahoma City with 14 home runs in 49 games.
