Bats: L, Throws: L

Adrian Gonzalez did not start on Monday against the Marlins, but was called on in a pinch-hit opportunity for the Dodgers in their 3-2 loss against the Marlins. Gonzalez struck out in the ninth inning, but still has a .347 batting average this season.

Fantasy Impact: For the second straight season, Adrian Gonzalez is white-hot to open the season and, although he will not touch last April's 1.222 OPS, he has a .932 OPS with 15 RBI for the Dodgers thus far. Gonzalez has consistently proven that he is a top-10 1B, but he needs to have a full season of April/May production to be a top-five 1B. Even with late season struggles, Gonzalez is a safe bet for a batting average near .300, 30 or more home runs, and 100 or more RBI.

Following his hot start, Adrian Gonzalez has continued to cool off. Sunday he went 0-for-3 against the Giants.

Fantasy Impact: While he's still sitting with an average north of .300 and a respectable OPS of .808, Gonzalez now only has four hits in his last 23 at-bats.

Adrian Gonzalez is having a solid start to the 2016 season. Gonzalez is 12-for-28 (.429 AVG) with six runs and six RBI in his first seven games.

Fantasy Impact: Petco Park and AT&T Park are difficult places for power as Gonzalez hit the ball off the wall multiple times. AGon is hitting the ball hard and the home runs will follow.

Adrain Gonzalez walked three times and scored a run in a win over the Padres om Wednesday night. He is currently hitting .400 on the season with an OPS of 1.071.

Fantasy Impact: Much like 2015, Gonzalez is off to another hot start in April. The Dodgers will play the Giants in their next series. Last year, Gonzalez hit .286 in 68 AB against Giants pitchers.

So far this spring Adrian Gonzalez is hitting .143 with one RBI.

Fantasy Impact: It is a bit concerning considering Gonzalez's age but come the regular season he should be back to normal. We should take into account that he no longer has the power he used to but the RBIs and average should still be there. Take him within the first five to seven 1Bs this season.


Adrian Gonazlez batted 0-for-3 with a walk against the Diamondbacks on Wednesday. The veteran first baseman is batting .278/.354/.493 on the season with 28 home runs and 87 RBI.

Fantasy Impact: Gonzalez got off to a notably scorching start to the 2015 season back in April and has settled in as a solid-but-unspectacular fantasy first baseman. He could be in line for a fantastic finish to the fantasy season, however, as the Dodgers travel this weekend to Coors Field to face Rockies righties David Hale, Kyle Kendrick, and Jonathan Gray.

Adrian Gonzalez went 2-for-7 with a double, run scored and two strikeouts Tuesday against the Rockies.

Fantasy Impact: Gonzalez has now hit safely in each of his last four games, with multi-hits in three of the four. He continues to be an inexpensive option at 1B on some DFS sites, so monitor matchups through the remainder of the season to take advantage.

Fantasy Impact: It appears that Gonzalez should be good to go despite the early exit. He's largely disappointed this month after a strong July, and the sore knee certainly won't help his cause. It might be worth monitoring the impact in daily leagues before running him out there in your lineups considering his recent struggles.

Adrian Gonzalez went 1-for-4 with a pair of strikeouts during Sunday's loss to the Astros.

Fantasy Impact: Just an off-night for one of the game's most consistent first basemen. He'll look to get back on track Wednesday against Nationals righty Jordan Zimmermann.

Adrian Gonzalez heating up

Fri, Jul 31st 2:24am EDT
By Matthew Davis

Adrian Gonzalez is known as a streaky hitter but always has a productive stat line at the end of the season. He is currently in the midst of another hot streak.

Fantasy Impact: AGon has 5 HR and 10 RBI over his last 15 games with a .339 AVG. Be sure to monitor his price tag in DFS and make him an option while he is on a hot streak.


Adrian Gonzalez went 2-for-5 with a single and a two-run HR against the Braves on Monday.

Fantasy Impact: A-Gon has settled down after his ridiculously hot start to the season, but he's still mashing the ball at a great pace, now tied for 10th in MLB in homers with 21. That, combined with a .296 average and 60 RBI, makes Gonzalez one of the top options at 1B once again.

Adrian Gonzalez left the game today due to a right hand contusion. He insisted that he didn't need x-rays and expects to play tomorrow. (Source:

Fantasy Impact: The injury doesn't sound severe and shouldn't be a lingering concern. If he returns tomorrow, feel free to keep him in your lineup. Gonzalez is on pace for another 100+ RBI season along with his first 30 HR season with the Dodgers.


Category: , Injury Updates

Adrian Gonzalez went 3-for-5 with two singles, a RBI double, and a strikeout against the Marlins on Sunday.

Fantasy Impact: It looks like A-Gon is getting back into a groove, hitting safely in his last seven starts, including three multi-hit games, and two home runs. He's on pace for an excellent season with a .302 average (21st in MLB), 13 homers, and 48 RBI (13th in MLB) thus far.

Adrian Gonzalez went 1-for-4 with a solo-HR and a strikeout against the Cubs on Wednesday.

Fantasy Impact: There hasn't been much to celebrate for fantasy owners of A-Gon this month, but the slugger is on a small upturn. Gonzalez has hits in his last four games, including two homers. He's not the fantasy monster of the first couple months, but there is still plenty of value to be had from Adrian's bat the rest of the way.

Adrian Gonzalez went 0-for-5 against the Rangers on Wednesday.

Fantasy Impact: A-Gon has been scuffling quite a bit lately, going 5-for-42 (.119) since June 6th with no homers, no runs, and only 4 RBI. He's too good to bench, but it's difficult to know when the bounceback will come for Gonzalez.

Adrian Gonzalez went 1-for-4 with a RBI single against the Padres on Friday.

Fantasy Impact: Adrian has cooled off lately, going 2-for-20 in his last six games, but he's still one of the most dangerous hitters. The 40 RBI has him tied for 12th in the category, to go a .317 average (tied for 17th), and his 11 homers. Keep A-Gon active no matter what.

Adrian Gonzalez went 1-for-4 with a two-run homer, a walk, and two strikeouts against the Rockies Tuesday night.

Fantasy Impact: A-Gon lived up to his nickname on Tuesday night, hitting a two-run blast in the second game of the back-to-back. Gonzalez had been going through a bit of a slow spell for a while in May, but the homer has him in the top-20 in MLB in the category, and his average is sixth (.332). Now that he's through the "tough times" you can enjoy the usual excellent production.

Adrian Gonzalez batted 4-for-4 with two doubles, a walk, and a run scored in the Dodgers' 11-4 victory over the Rockies on Monday. His 19 doubles lead all of baseball by two, as Michael Brantley, Derek Norris, and Matt Carpenter have 17 apiece.

Fantasy Impact: After blasting five homers in the Dodgers' first three games in April, Gonzalez famously quipped that he is not a home run hitter, a statement that accurately predicted his pace would slow down considerably. Despite his modest total of ten homers (just two in May), Gonzalez has singled and doubled his way to a slugging percentage of .611 that is fifth-best in MLB. Fantasy owners should look elsewhere for elite pop, but Gonzalez should get to around 25 homers while providing top-notch production in batting average and RBI.

Adrian Gonzalez batted 1-for-3 with a walk and a two-run homer in the Dodgers' victory over the Braves on Tuesday. He is batting .344 / .421 / .638 with 10 home runs and 35 RBI in 44 games.

Fantasy Impact: Gonzalez probably cannot maintain quite this pace on his triple slash, but he's becoming a serious threat to set career highs in all three figures at age 33. His previous best season was .338 / .410 / .548 in 2011, aided by a .380 BABIP compared to his current .363 BABIP for 2015. Either way, Gonzalez is a near-lock for another 25 HR, 100 RBI, 80 run season.

AGon drove in his 999th RBI of his career tonight. It was his first since May 14th.

Fantasy Impact: Adrian's run production has cooled off a bit since his ridiculous April but has 33 RBI on the season. He came into the game tonight with a .446 wOBA, .289 ISO and a 189 wRC+.

Adrian Gonzalez managed one hit as the Dodgers were blanked 2-0 by the Giants on Tuesday night. He is now batting .355 / .430 / .674 on the season.

Fantasy Impact: Gonzalez is a zero in the base-stealing department but the veteran should continue to be one of fantasy's most productive first basemen in batting average and counting stats.


Category: , Game Recaps

Adrian Gonzalez batted 2-for-3 with two doubles, two walks, two RBI, and a run scored in the Dodgers' loss to the Rockies on Thursday. His 17 doubles lead Major League Baseball.

Fantasy Impact: We keep waiting for Gonzalez's numbers to come back to earth, but he's still batting .367 / .434 / .711 with 9 homers, 31 RBI, and 27 runs after 34 games. Fantasy owners who drafted him as a fringe top-10 first baseman should continue to enjoy a nice return on their investment.

Adrian Gonzalez batted 1-for-3 with an RBI double and two runs scored in the Dodgers' 11-1 win over the Marlins on Tuesday.

Fantasy Impact: Gonzalez continues to be one of the top overall fantasy producers in 2015, now batting .372 / .434 / .719 with 9 home runs (6th in MLB), 30 RBI (2nd in MLB), and 26 runs (4th in MLB).

Adrian Gonzalez continues to hit

Thu, Apr 30th 12:38pm EDT
By Matthew Davis

Adrian Gonzalez now has 8 HR and 19 RBI in the first month of the season. He took Ryan Vogelsong deep in the first inning.

Fantasy Impact: Gonzalez won't be able to continue this pace of hitting but he did lead the MLB in RBI last season. You can expect consistent production from him and enjoy the value he provided. He always goes after the first tier of 1B and cost less than those guys in auction leagues. Keep monitoring the matchups in DFS as he rakes at home and especially vs. RHP.

Adrian Gonzalez sets HR record

Thu, Apr 9th 12:41pm EDT
By Matthew Davis

Gonzalez is the first ever to hit 5 HR in their first 3 games of the season. In 13 ABs he has 7 hits, 5HR, 7 runs & 7 RBI.

Fantasy Impact: Gonzalez is the hottest hitter on the planet. Nobody can sustain this type of performance but enjoy the ride! He will settle in and will continue to contribute in 4 out of 5 counting stats.


Category: , Game Recaps

Adrian Gonzalez was able to join the Dodgers hit parade today. He had one hit while driving in a run.

Fantasy Impact: Gonzalez is having a quiet spring over 15 games. He his only hitting .205 with 2 HR and 6 RBI. The Dodgers slugger led all of MLB in 2014 with 116 RBI, 27 HR and a .276 AVG. I wouldn't worry about his stat line this spring. Expect similar production from 2014.
