Dodgers News: Tony Gonsolin Heads Out on Rehab Assignment



Perhaps just in time, the Dodgers could be getting a key innings eater back for the stretch run. A day after scheduled starter David Price was scratched with soreness in his left elbow, right-hander Tony Gonsolin is set to make a minor league rehab appearance.

Dodger manager Dave Roberts shared the update on Friday afternoon adding that he’s expecting 3 innings out of Gonsolin. The outing will be with the Rancho Cucamonga Quakes, so get your tickets now if you’re local and looking to enjoy some minor league baseball.

The 27-year-old has been out since July 30th after aggravating a shoulder issue that shut him down to start the season. Gonsolin has been working off a mound and threw a 2 inning simulated game earlier this week at Dodger Stadium.

On the season, Gonsolin has made 10 appearances (9 starts), posting a 2.78 ERA over 35.2 innings pitched. If all goes according to plan in Rancho, the Cat Man could slot back into the rotation as soon as next weekend at home against the Padres.

Other Injury News

Thankfully more positive news came for the Dodgers on Friday after ace Clayton Kershaw came out of a simulated game at Oracle Park cleanly. Dave Roberts said he hopes the left-hander can head out on a rehab assignment next week.

As mentioned early, David Price was scratched with an elbow issue on Friday. Roberts revealed that the elbow — something Doc termed “arm stuff” — had been bugging price over his last few starts and could land him on the IL.

  1. If Gonso can get his mojo back, it could be a huge lift for the Dodgers, especially if Kershaw doesn’t make it back. Price is doing OK, but if Gonsolin could get back to anywhere near last seasons form, it would be huge for the remainder of the regular season. We will probably be neck and neck with the Giants down the stretch. We need to keep the big three as rested as possible.
