Dodgers News: Tony Gonsolin Expected to be Activated ‘Very Soon’



The Dodgers are still trending towards getting healthy again, and it’s just in time. Chasing the Giants by a game in the NL West, Los Angeles looks to be getting back a pair of starters sooner rather than later.  

One guy the Dodgers could have back as soon as this week is Tony Gonsolin. Tony has been shut down since the end of July when his shoulder started to give him trouble again. The shoulder also led to him getting a late start to the season out of Spring Training. 

But according to Dave Roberts, Gonsolin is feeling good following his rehab start in Rancho Cucamonga. The Dodgers manager also said that the way he came out of it, Gonsolin could join up with the team soon. 

Yeah, it(his rehab outing) was positive and he will be activated with us here soon. 

That’s great news for the Dodgers as they head towards October baseball. Their starting rotation currently consists of just 3 guys, and Julio Urias has a ton of innings on that left arm of his. They’re going to need Tony to step up and eat a lot of innings when he does return.

The Dodgers should also be getting back Clayton Kershaw soon as well. Doc shared that they expect him to return to the rotation during his next go-around after he makes a rehab start with Oklahoma City this week. That could come as soon as tomorrow setting up a weekend return for Kersh.

  1. A healthy, effective Gonsolin, could be a big plus for the rotation and bullpen. I don’t trust DR’s assessments. We’ll see.

  2. Big deal so Tony G comes back how many pitches is DR going to leave him in for? He already has his foot on the dugout step ready to go with some AA pitcher for that 1 third of an inning . How is that eating up innings.
