Dodgers: Tony Gonsolin and Tyler Anderson, the Unsung Heroes

On a team that features guys like Clayton Kershaw, Walker Buehler, and Julio Urias, it’s easy to be overlooked. But the Dodgers have a couple of gems on their starting rotation, and Dave Roberts has to be feeling like the luckiest guy in baseball.

The Dodgers scooped up Tyler Anderson as depth this offseason. Signing him to an $8 million deal was insurance should things have gone south with their staff. And although injuries have hit them, Anderson’s performance has made it much easier to figure things out. 

He just wrapped up his 20th consecutive scoreless inning on Saturday night against the Diamondbacks. Along with Tony Gonsolin, they’re proving to be the most consistent starters for the Dodgers this season.

The two have combined for 11 wins and no losses for the Dodgers. Gonsolin has pitched to a 1.80 ERA across 45 innings of work and has tallied a 3.18 FIP. Anderson is down to a 2.90 ERA across 49.2 innings of work and punching out 48 strikeouts. 

If there were unsung heroes on this Dodgers team, it would almost certainly be Gonsolin and Anderson. The injuries to Kershaw and Andrew Heaney have only highlighted just how badly the team needed these performances from them.
