Player Outlook
After a magical 2022 season that put him in Cy Young contention for much of the campaign, Tony Gonsolin struggled to get on track last year. An ankle sprain resulted in the right-hander beginning the season on the IL, though he pitched well upon his return, compiling a 1.93 ERA (albeit with a 4.24 FIP) through his first nine starts. Things fell apart for Gonsolin after mid-June, however, and it was eventually revealed that he pitched through an elbow issue for over a month. Not long thereafter, Gonsolin hit the injured list again with right forearm inflammation, and he subsequently underwent Tommy John surgery. The procedure will likely keep the hurler out of action for most (if not all) of 2024, and it remains to be seen what the future holds for him as a Dodger, as the team not only has multiple young arms looking to settle into the rotation but also traded for (and extended) Tyler Glasnow in the offseason and will have Shohei Ohtani leading the staff in in 2025.

  • Dodgers' Tony Gonsolin: Placed on 60-day IL

    The Dodgers placed Gonsolin (elbow) on the 60-day injured list Friday, Bill Plunkett of The Orange County Register reports. The move frees up a spot on the 40-man roster for the addition of Clayton Kershaw (shoulder). Kershaw, of course, will soon go on the 60-day IL himself, creating another spot. Gonsolin will miss the 2024 campaign while recovering from Tommy John surgery.

  • 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.

  • 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 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.

  • 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.

  • 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 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.

  • 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.

  • 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.

  • 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.

  • 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.

  • 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.

  • 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.

  • 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.

  • 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.

  • 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.

  • 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.

  • Dodgers' Tony Gonsolin: Sees scoreless streak end

    Gonsolin allowed three runs on three hits and two walks whiles striking out four batters over 5.2 innings in a no-decision against Atlanta on Wednesday. Gonsolin entered the contest having pitched 16 innings without allowing an earned run over his previous three starts, and he kept Atlanta off the scoreboard for three frames Wednesday. However, the scoreless streak ended with Matt Olson's mammoth solo homer in the fourth, and Marcell Ozuna added a two-run blast off the right-hander in the fifth. Gonsolin still pitched well overall -- he yielded just one hit aside from the long balls -- and his ERA remains sterling at 1.82. His next turn in the rotation is tentatively slated to be a home matchup against the Nationals.

  • Dodgers' Tony Gonsolin: Tosses five scoreless frames

    Gonsolin (1-1) allowed two hits and a walk over five shutout innings Sunday, striking out six and earning a win over San Diego. The Padres had nothing for Gonsolin all afternoon. He allowed two leadoff doubles but quickly worked out of the jams and retired the last eight batters he faced. Gonsolin threw a season-high 85 pitches and dropped his ERA to 1.42 across 19 innings. He's currently lined up to make his next start in St. Louis.

    Gonsolin (0-1) gave up three unearned runs on three hits over six innings Monday, striking out six and taking a loss against the Brewers. Gonsolin faced little pushback from Milwaukee through four shutout frames. He ran into trouble in the fifth after a fielding error and Joey Wiemer made him pay with a three-run shot. It was the longest start of the year for Gonsolin, who threw 54 of 80 pitches for strikes as he works towards a full workload. He's sporting a 1.93 ERA and a 10:5 K:BB through 14 innings. Gonsolin is currently lined up for a home matchup with the Padres this weekend.

After throwing 65 pitches in his season debut, Gonsolin got up to 80 in his second outing, including 52 strikes (nine whiffs). He worked through three shutout frames before serving up a solo homer to Kyle Schwarber. Gonsolin was then charged with two more runs in the fifth inning. The 28-year-old has registered a 3.38 ERA with a 4:5 K:BB through eight innings in his two starts. Gonsolin is projected to take the mound in San Diego this weekend, where he should be able to handle a full workload.
