’10-run’ Gonsolin out for season with elbow injury

The Los Angeles Dodgers, who are leading the National League West, have an injury bugbear.

Speaking to the Los Angeles Times and other local media ahead of the team’s home game against the Miami Marlins on Tuesday, Dodgers manager Dave Roberts spoke about right-hander Tony Gonsoli, who was placed on the disabled list with anterior elbow inflammation.

According to him, Gonsolin has been sidelined with an elbow injury and is unlikely to return for the season. He is effectively out for the season.

Gonsolin went 8-5 with a 4.98 ERA in 20 starts and 103 innings pitched this season. He suffered an ankle injury during spring training that delayed his start by about a month.

The day before, he started a home game against the Miami Marlins and was disastrous, allowing 10 runs on eight hits, five home runs, four walks, and two strikeouts in 3 1/3 innings. The disastrous performance was later revealed to be the result of an injury.

Roberts explained that Gonsolin had been pitching with an elbow issue for about six weeks. He thought it was a manageable injury, but it had reached its limit. 안전놀이터

Gonsolin will have his elbow examined in the next couple of weeks before deciding on a treatment plan.

Gonsolin made his major league debut in 2019 and went 34-11 with a 3.19 ERA in 79 games over five seasons.

He helped the Dodgers win the World Series in 2020 and was named to his first All-Star team in 2022.

The Dodgers will immediately need to fill a rotation spot for the remainder of the season, with Ryan Peavy, who was added as an extra for the doubleheader, Gavin Stone and Ryan Yarbrough among the candidates.
