Gonsolin gave up one run on five hits and no walks while striking out two through four innings in a no-decision against the Braves on Sunday.
While rejoining the big club for the first time in nearly two weeks, Gonsolin was expected to have his pitch count limited, so it came as no surprise that he was removed after only 72 pitches and a solid four-inning showing. The 25-year-old has a 3.00 ERA and a 15:1 K:BB through 18 innings this season. The Dodgers' plans for Gonsolin for the rest of the season remain undetermined, but manager Dave Roberts said the rookie will get at least one more turn after Sunday, per Ken Gurnick of MLB.com. Gonsolin lines up to make his next start Aug. 24 at home versus the Yankees.
Gonsolin was recalled from Triple-A Oklahoma City prior to his start Sunday in Atlanta, Jorge Castillo of the Los Angeles Times reports.
With Dustin May moving the bullpen in an effort to manage his workload and prepare him for that role in the postseason, Gonsolin will make at least one more start after Sunday's outing, Ken Gurnick of MLB.com reports. He has a mid-90s fastball that has touched triple digits in shorter outings, and his last big-league start was an Aug. 5 gem against the Cardinals.
Gonsolin will be promoted to start Sunday in Atlanta, Alanna Rizzo of Spectrum SportsNet LA reports.
The Dodgers seem to be moving Dustin May to the bullpen for the stretch run in an effort to manage his workload, so Gonsolin will work as the fifth starter for the time being. His last big-league start was an Aug. 5 gem against the Cardinals, but he was not as sharp in his two other appearances in the majors. It's a tough matchup for Gonsolin, but he has big-time velocity and should get solid run support, so he's not a bad streamer.
Manager Dave Roberts said that Gonsolin could be called up from Triple-A Oklahoma City to start Sunday against the Braves, Ken Gurnick of MLB.com reports.
Beyond noting that Dustin May -- who had initially been scheduled to start Sunday -- would work in relief, Roberts wouldn't fully commit to his plans for the Los Angeles pitching staff in the series finale in Atlanta. The Dodgers' decision on who will start Sunday may hinge on how much relief help is needed in Saturday's contest, when Hyun-Jin Ryu's turn in the rotation comes up. If limited relief help is needed behind Ryu, the Dodgers could treat the series finale as a bullpen game rather than calling up Gonsolin, who gave up five runs while posting a 13:1 K:BB across 14 innings in the big leagues earlier this season.
Gonsolin was optioned to Triple-A Oklahoma City on Tuesday, Ken Gurnick of MLB.com reports.
It's a bit of a bummer that Gonsolin has to head back to the minors after an excellent start Monday against the Cardinals, during which he allowed just two hits and a walk over six scoreless frames while fanning seven. However, it was also an anticipated move, given the imminent return of Hyun-Jin Ryu (neck) and Ross Stripling (biceps). He is not the caliber of pitching prospect that Dustin May is, but Gonsolin is a very solid prospect in his own right. He features a plus mid-90s fastball -- he has hit triple digits before in shorter bursts -- a high-spin splitter and a swing-and miss slider. Look for him to be back in the majors this season, likely pitching out of the bullpen. He should get a call after rosters expand in September at the latest.
Gonsolin (1-1) allowed two hits and a walk over six scoreless innings Monday, striking out seven batters and earning the win over St. Louis.
Gonsolin dominated the Cardinals, allowing just one runner to reach scoring position. The rookie right-hander now owns a solid 13:1 K:BB over his fist 14 MLB innings. With Hyun-Jin Ryu (neck) and Ross Stripling (biceps) both expected to return from the injured list sometime around this weekend, Gonsolin may not get another turn in the rotation during this big-league stint.
Gonsolin has been named the starting pitcher for Monday's game against the Cardinals, Ken Gurnick of MLB.com reports.
Gonsolin was brought back to the big leagues Friday, though he's not expected to see action until he toes the rubber Monday night. He's appeared in two contests this season for the Dodgers, surrendering five runs while fanning six over eight innings (one start).
Gonsolin was recalled from Triple-A Oklahoma City on Friday.
Gonsolin had only just been sent down to Triple-A on Wednesday. He's allowed to return just two days later with Hyun-Jin Ryu (neck) landing on the injured list. Gonsolin has made two appearances for the Dodgers this season, allowing seven runs (five earned) in eight innings of work.
Gonsolin was optioned to Triple-A Oklahoma City on Wednesday, Ken Gurnick of MLB.com reports.
Gonsolin is unavailable to pitch for a few days after recording a four-inning save against the Rockies on Tuesday, so the Dodgers opted to send him back to the minors to free up a roster spot for Dylan Floro (neck), who was activated from the injured list. The right-hander's solid outing Tuesday -- he allowed one earned run on three hits and no walks while striking out three -- should earn him another look with the big club down the stretch.
Gonsolin threw four innings and was credited with the save against the Rockies on Tuesday, giving up one earned run on three hits, striking out three with no walks as the Dodgers won 9-4.
Julio Urias started the contest, but Gonsolin wound up tossing the most innings and picking up a seldom-seen four-inning save in just his second big-league appearance of 2019. It remains to be seen how the Dodgers choose to use him since he was a starter for Triple-A Oklahoma City, but this solid relief effort may have bolstered Gonsolin's case for a more extended look coming out of the bullpen.
Gonsolin was recalled from Triple-A Oklahoma City on Tuesday.
Gonsolin is expected to join the Dodgers as a reliever despite making 12 starts at Triple-A this season. He's posted a 4.95 ERA and 1.58 WHIP with 41 strikeouts over 36.1 innings for Los Angeles' Triple-A affiliate in 2019.
Gonsolin has not yet been recalled from Triple-A Oklahoma City, Jorge Castillo of the Los Angeles Times reports.
Gonsolin is currently with the Dodgers, though he's not expected to be added to their active roster until Tuesday. The right-hander is a candidate to start Tuesday's game against the Rockies, though it would likely be an abbreviated outing if he does get the ball, as Julio Urias is expected to cover the majority of innings.
Gonsolin was recalled from Triple-A Oklahoma City on Sunday, J.P. Hoornstra of the Los Angeles Daily News reports.
Gonsolin surrendered four runs on six hits and fanned three over four innings during his only major-league start earlier this season, and he'll get another shot to prove he belongs with the big club. It's unclear at this time whether he'll be used as a reliever or a starter.
Triple-A Oklahoma City reinstated Gonsolin (hamstring) from the 7-day injured list Monday, J.P. Hoornstra of the Los Angeles Daily News reports.
Gonsolin is scheduled to start for the affiliate Monday after being shut down for the past two weeks with a strained left hamstring. Over 29.2 innings at Triple-A this season, Gonsolin has posted a 3.64 ERA, 1.44 WHIP and 35:16 K:BB.
Gonsolin suffered a strained left hamstring Friday to land on the 7-day IL for Triple-A Oklahoma City, Ken Gurnick of MLB.com reports.
The severity of the injury is not yet clear. Gonsolin allowed four runs in four innings of work in his only big-league start back in late June but has a solid 3.64 ERA in nine starts for Oklahoma City.
Gonsolin was placed on the 7-day injured list at Triple-A Oklahoma City on Friday, Ken Gurnick of MLB.com reports.
The nature of Gonsolin's injury was not disclosed. Gonsolin struggled in his big-league debut June 26, and was knocked around for four runs in 3.2 innings in his return to Oklahoma City on July 1.
Gonsolin was optioned to Triple-A Oklahoma City on Thursday.
Gonsolin will head back to the minors after struggling in his big-league debut Wednesday against the Diamondbacks, allowing six runs (four earned) on six hits over four innings while striking out three in a losing effort. The 25-year-old will rejoin Oklahoma City's rotation for the time being, though he could get another shot with the big club later in the season should an opportunity arise. Zac Rosscup was promoted from the minors in a corresponding move.
Gonsolin (0-1) took the loss Wednesday, coughing up six runs (four earned) on six hits over four innings while striking out three as the Dodgers were downed 8-2 by the Diamondbacks.
While some shaky defense behind him didn't help, Gonsolin also showed plenty of jitters in his big-league debut, getting tagged for four runs before he could even record an out, with the big blow being a three-run homer by Eduardo Escobar. It's not yet clear whether the 25-year-old will head back to Triple-A Oklahoma City after this outing or shift to a bullpen role with the Dodgers, but he didn't do much to encourage the front office to keep him around.
Gonsolin was promoted from Triple-A Oklahoma City ahead of his scheduled start Wednesday against the Diamondbacks, Ken Gurnick of MLB.com reports.
Gonsolin is poised to make his big-league debut after compiling a 2.77 ERA, 1.27 WHIP and 31:13 K:BB across eight starts (26 innings) with Triple-A Oklahoma City. The right-hander hasn't exceeded five innings of 77 pitches in any outing for Oklahoma City, so he figures to see similar restrictions in Wednesday's start. Will Smith was optioned to Triple-A while Tony Cingrani (shoulder) was shifted to the 60-day injured list in a pair of corresponding moves.
Gonsolin is expected to make an abbreviated start Wednesday, when he'll be called up from Triple-A Oklahoma City to make his MLB debut against the Diamondbacks, Ken Gurnick of MLB.com reports.
Since Gonsolin's last minor-league appearance came June 20, he'll be available on normal rest when he joins the Dodgers, but the right-hander has already been handling limited workloads all season while working out of the Triple-A rotation. Over his eight starts with the affiliate, Gonsolin hasn't exceeded five innings or 77 pitches, so similar restrictions will likely remain in place Wednesday. Julio Urias could end up piggybacking Gonsolin if he goes unused in relief Tuesday behind new rotation member Ross Stripling, who is also expected to face a limited workload.
