Two top Dodgers prospects have sustained injuries:

Tony Gonsolin

Right-handed pitcher Tony Gonsolin has been placed on the 7-day minor league Injured List at Triple-A Oklahoma City.

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.

Will Smith

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.

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.

    • OH NO! NOT Rocky Gale! ( I say this with “The Scream” painting in mind.
      So what about Keibert Ruiz? and leave Gale down at OKC.

  1. I hope Ruiz gets it going. He is currently hitting .251 at AA Tulsa with weak power numbers. Might he be overrated? I hope to see Smith back with the Dodgers soon.

  2. Great, we(Dodger fans) have to live with “automatic-out” Barnes and Martin at catcher. I agree with Gary Granade in that Keibert Ruiz has been overrated. Come back healthy Will Smith, the Dodgers need you!
