Dodgers' Tony Gonsolin: Set for Tommy John surgery
Gonsolin (elbow) will undergo Tommy John surgery Friday, Bill Plunkett of The Orange County Register reports.
Gonsolin was ruled out for the rest of the 2023 campaign after being moved to the 60-day injured list Sunday, but news of Tommy John surgery likely means he'll miss most, if not the entirety of 2024. This is more disappointing news for the right-hander, who will finish the year with a 4.98 ERA over 103 frames after posting a 2.14 ERA across 130.1 innings a season ago.... See More ... See Less
Dodgers' Tony Gonsolin: Could require surgery
Dodgers manager Dave Roberts said Friday that Gonsolin (forearm) might require surgery, Jack Harris of the Los Angeles Times reports.
There's nothing official yet, but Gonsolin is not expected back this season, and a surgical procedure could affect his readiness for the beginning of the 2024 campaign. The 29-year-old right-hander landed on the injured list Aug. 19 due to right forearm discomfort, and an MRI taken earlier this week apparently revealed some form of structural damage.... See More ...

Dodgers' Tony Gonsolin: Shifts to 60-day IL
The Dodgers transferred Gonsolin (forearm) from the 15-day injured list to the 60-day IL on Sunday, Eric Stephen of SBNation.com reports.
The transaction opens up a spot on the 40-man roster for waiver-wire pickup Tyson Miller, but more significantly, it officially closes the door on Gonsolin pitching again in 2023, barring the Dodgers making a deep postseason run. Even if the Dodgers advance to the National League Championship Series or the World Series, Gonsolin is still unlikely to pitch again, given that he could require surgery to address his right elbow injury. Gonsolin recently underwent an MRI, and the Dodgers will await the results before making a decision regarding surgery. If a procedure is deemed necessary, Gonsolin's absence could stretch into the 2024 season.... See More ... See Less
Dodgers' Tony Gonsolin: Likely done for season
The Dodgers placed Gonsolin on the 15-day injured list Saturday with right forearm inflammation, Matthew Moreno of DodgerBlue.com reports.
After officially announcing Gonsolin's move to the injured list, manager Dave Roberts stated that it is unlikely Gonsolin pitches again this season, per David Vassegh of AM 570 LA Sports. The 29-year-old righty will get an MRI on his elbow next week, at which point the team will have a better idea of whether Gonsolin will be shut down for the year. Bryan Hudson was recalled from Triple-A Oklahoma City in a corresponding move.... See More ... See Less
Dodgers' Tony Gonsolin: Trip to injured list expected
Gonsolin has been pitching through an elbow issue but will likely require a trip to the injured list, Mike DiGiovanna of the Los Angeles Times reports.
The exact nature of Gonsolin's injury is unclear, but the issue helps explain his poor run of starts. He allowed 10 runs (including five homers) in 3.1 innings Friday against the Marlins, bringing his ERA over his last six starts to 8.01. The injury could mean Ryan Pepiot sticks around in the rotation after a spot start in Saturday's doubleheader, or it could open a path for Emmet Sheehan or Gavin Stone to get another chance....

Dodgers' Tony Gonsolin: Crushed in Friday's loss
Gonsolin (8-5) surrendered 10 runs on eight hits and four walks while striking out two over 3.1 innings to take the loss Friday versus the Marlins.
Both starters struggled in this contest, but Gonsolin got caught with more traffic on the bases. He gave up a total of five homers in the contest, including three for multiple runs, in his worst outing of the season. This snapped a three-game winning streak for Gonsolin as well as the Dodgers' 11-game winning streak as a team. He's now at a 4.98 ERA, 1.22 WHIP and 82:40 K:BB through 103 innings over 20 starts this year. Gonsolin has alternated good and bad outings over his last five turns, but he's projected for a tough road assignment in Boston his next time out.... See More ... See Less
Dodgers' Tony Gonsolin: Earns eighth win
Gonsolin (8-4) allowed a run on three hits and struck out six without walking a batter over six innings to earn the win Saturday over the Rockies.
Gonsolin earned his third win in a row, rebounding from allowing six runs over six innings his last start. His lone mistake Saturday was an Ezequiel Tovar solo home run on the first pitch of the game. While Gonsolin has either been sharp or shaky with little in between, it's averaged out to a pedestrian 4.24 ERA, 1.14 WHIP and 80:36 K:BB through 99.2 innings over 19 starts this season. He's projected to make his next start at home versus the Marlins.... See More ... See Less
Dodgers' Tony Gonsolin: Tagged for six runs in win
Gonsolin (7-4) earned the win Monday, allowing six runs on nine hits and one walk over six innings against San Diego. He struck out three.
The Padres inflicted the majority of their damage against Gonsolin in the third inning, tallying five runs on four hits including a two-run bomb by Luis Campusano. Despite the rough inning, Gonsolin managed to stay in the game long enough to receive the run support needed to earn a victory. In five starts since the All-Star break, the 29-year-old right-hander has now posted a 5.19 ERA, 1.35 WHIP and 20:10 K:BB across 26 innings. He is projected for a home start against the Rockies over the weekend.... See More ... See Less
Dodgers' Tony Gonsolin: Picks up sixth win
Gonsolin (6-4) allowed a run on five hits and two walks while striking out three over five innings to earn the win Wednesday over the Athletics.
While it was a soft matchup, it was still a positive to see Gonsolin end a three-start winless stretch. His lone mistake was a Shea Langeliers solo home run in the third inning -- that was the sixth homer Gonsolin has allowed over his last five starts. The right-hander now has a 4.11 ERA, 1.15 WHIP and 71:35 K:BB through 87.2 innings over 17 starts. He's projected for a road start in San Diego early next week.... See More ... See Less
Dodgers' Tony Gonsolin: Struggles continue against Jays
Gonsolin (5-4) took the loss Wednesday as the Dodgers fell 8-1 to the Blue Jays, giving up five runs on seven hits and three walks over five innings. He struck out five.
The right-hander continues to wilt in the summer heat. Gonsolin has been tagged for at least four runs in six of his last seven starts, stumbling to a 7,25 ERA over that stretch despite a superficially respectable 1.39 WHIP. The 29-year-old's 19.7 percent strikeout rate and 9.7 percent swinging strike rate on the season are career lows, as is his 92.6 mph average on his fastball, and Gonsolin could be tough to deploy even as a streaming option in the second half if he can't regain some of those lost whiffs. He's next set to take the mound at home next week against the A's.... See More ... See Less
Dodgers' Tony Gonsolin: Allows four runs
Gonsolin yielded four runs on two hits and three walks over five innings in Friday's win over Texas. He struck out six and did not factor in the decision.
Gonsolin allowed a two-run homer in the first inning and later gave up two more runs in the fourth. He's been tagged with at least four runs in five of his last six outings, spiking his ERA from 1.93 to 3.94 during that span. The six strikeouts were his highest total since June 18, but he's been taken deep four times in his last three starts. Gonsolin's next outing is currently lined up to come at home against Toronto next week.... See More ... See Less
Dodgers' Tony Gonsolin: Pulled after 54 pitches
Gonsolin allowed two hits and one run in a no-decision against the Mets on Saturday. He walked one batter and struck out three.
Gonsolin gave up a deep solo blast to Brandon Nimmo in the fourth inning but otherwise kept the Mets off the scoreboard. It was curious, then, that he was pulled after the fifth frame having thrown just 54 pitches, but manager Dave Roberts clarified after the contest that the quick hook wasn't due to an injury. "You could see Tony kind of battling with the humidity, the feel of the baseball. When you're looking down at a fresh 'pen, for me it was a no-brainer on shortening him right there as far as pitch count," Roberts stated, per Fabian Ardaya of The Athletic. Ardaya adds that Gonsolin himself stated that he "couldn't get a good grip on the ball," so there doesn't seem to be any concern about the right-hander's health. Gonsolin should be good to go without restrictions for his next outing, which is lined up to be a tough matchup against the Rangers in Texas.... See More ... See Less
Dodgers' Tony Gonsolin: Notches fifth win
Gonsolin improved to 5-3 with a victory over the Angels on Friday during which he allowed four runs on seven hits and one walk over 6.2 innings. He struck out five batters.
Gonsolin was staked to a 4-0 lead through three innings before giving up a Mickey Moniak three-run homer in the fourth. The right-hander bounced back with a scoreless fifth and sixth, then surrendered a solo shot to Mike Moustakas in the seventh. Gonsolin finished having yielded exactly four runs for his third straight start, but this was the best outing of the bunch as he went a season-high 6.2 frames on an efficient 77 pitches (54 strikes). The 29-year-old heads into the All-Star break with a 3.86 ERA, 1.12 WHIP and 54:26 K:BB over 67.2 innings on the campaign.... See More ... See Less
Dodgers' Tony Gonsolin: Surrenders four runs in loss
Gonsolin (4-3) took the loss Sunday against the Royals, allowing four runs on six hits and three walks while striking out three over 3.2 innings.
Gonsolin was roughed up Sunday for a third consecutive start by one of the worst offenses in baseball. He tossed scoreless frames in the first and third but unraveled in the fourth after allowing four of the first five batters he faced to reach, leading to three runs in the inning for the Royals. He was unable to complete the frame and was yanked at 81 pitches. Gonsolin has issued multiple walks in seven of his last eight starts and has given up 15 runs over his last 14.1 innings after owning a sparkling 1.93 ERA through June 13. The 29-year-old now sports a 3.69 ERA, 1.11 WHIP and 49:25 K:BB in 61 innings and lines up to face the Angels this week.... See More ... See Less
Dodgers' Tony Gonsolin: Tagged with four runs
Gonsolin yielded four runs on five hits and a walk over five innings in Sunday's loss to Houston. He struck out three and did not factor in the decision.
All the damage against Gonsolin came on a pair of two-run shots. He previously turned in four straight starts without allowing a home run but still posted a lackluster 4.37 ERA during that span. After registering a 1.13 ERA through his first five starts of the campaign, Gonsolin's season ERA has spiked to 3.30 across 57.1 innings. His next start is lined up to be in Kansas City....

Dodgers' Tony Gonsolin: Crushed for seven runs
Gonsolin (4-2) yielded seven runs on six hits and three walks over 5.2 innings Sunday, striking out seven and taking a loss against the Giants.
Gonsolin looked strong through three perfect frames before things began to unravel. While it was his first time allowing more than three runs in an outing this year, he also racked up a season-high seven punchouts. Gonsolin had registered a 1.93 ERA while going 4-0 over his previous six starts before Sunday. Despite the poor outing, Gonsolin is sporting a 2.92 ERA with a 43:21 K:BB across 10 starts. His next start is lined up to be at home against the Astros.... See More ... See Less
Dodgers' Tony Gonsolin: Tosses six scoreless innings
Gonsolin (4-1) allowed two hits and two walks while striking out six over six scoreless innings to earn the win Tuesday over the White Sox.
Gonsolin threw 60 of 90 pitches for strikes and picked up his third quality start in nine outings this season. He's won four of his last six starts, and this was the third time in that span he's kept runs off the board. The steady right-hander is at a 1.93 ERA, 0.94 WHIP and 36:18 K:BB through 46.2 innings, though those ratios are likely too good to last since he's not dominating with strikeouts as much this year. He's projected to make his next start over the weekend at home versus the Giants.... See More ... See Less
