Dodgers Recall Tony Gonsolin to Make the Start Tonight



The Dodgers continue to move guys around and keep arms fresh. On Wednesday morning, the team announced that they had recalled Tony Gonsolin to make the start against San Diego.

Gonsolin last made an appearance in a start against Arizona in July against the Diamondbacks. He threw 4 innings and did not allow a run. Gonsolin also allowed just 1 hit and walked 1 as well. The Dodgers went on to lose that game 5-3.

The Dodgers are in the middle of a stretch of games that will see them play 17 consecutive days. That is part of the reasons why they have been so adamant about rotating guys in and out. Keeping fresh arms in the bullpen and the starting rotation is the key to success in this sprint of a season. 

In a corresponding move, the Dodgers also optioned left-handed reliever Adam Kolarek to the alternate site again. Kolarek made just one appearance against San Diego since being recalled. That was last night when he threw 2 shutout innings and induced 5 groundballs. 

Looking Ahead

The Dodgers wrap up the series with San Diego on Thursday night with Julio Urias on the mound. Clayton Kershaw was supposed to get the start, but he was pushed back a day with the Gonsolin callup. Los Angeles will then head down to Anaheim for a weekend series against the Angels.

  1. Good move Gonsolin deserves starts. The Padres are flexing their muscles. They have arrived. They are contenders now. That deep farm system is paying off. Colorado was one of the worst teams in baseball last year. Now they have solid pitching and are leading the division. The NL west is alot tougher this year. Bellinger and Muncy need to start producing. Seager needs to return to the line up.

  2. A future rotation of Buehler, Urias, May, & Gonsolin with an intense rotation spot competition with Santana, Gonzalez, Gray, White and others Bodes well for the Dodger future.
    The Wood signing was just strange.

  3. Here we go again. Stripling, Pederson, Hernandez, Wood. Terrible players sucking up time that Lux, Tony G, May and others can be seeing. It’s crazy but Roberts will find a way to mess things up even without the Stros cheating.

    • Stripling isn’t terrible and doesn’t complain about any role with the team. The rest will be FAs that won’t be with the team next year. Wood is the real problem this year because his contract can double if he meets incentives that include starts and innings. He announced himself a starter early this season before the team did and said he wouldn’t have signed with the team unless they agreed. Imagine if he’s ready to pitch and doesn’t get the opportunity. They should trade him now.

  4. The talent we have is amazing, would be nice to have a manager that knows what to do with it. A manager that can tell player’s when to play small ball, when to swing for the fence, our player’s have to figure it out on their own, it’s rediculus, all that man does is slap their butts and cheer’s them on. We need a real manager, not a cheerleader.
