Adrian Gonzalez gets second oppinion on back injury

Adrian Gonzalez got his second opinion on his back, and was reconfirmed that it is indeed a bulging disc issue and may start receiving epidural shots.

Fantasy Impact

The good news on Gonzalez is that Dave Roberts has indicated that Gonzalez should avoid surgery. The concerning issue is that there is no timetable for a return and it'll be at least after the all-star break before he might be considered ready. There has been some talk that Gonzalez should just call it a career. Fantasy wise Gonzalez isn't going to perform as he once did and should be avoided in all formats.

Adrian Gonzalez (back) placed on 10-day disabled list

The Dodgers placed Adrian Gonzalez on the 10-day disabled list with a herniated disc in his back. The team activated Joc Pederson from the seven-day concussion DL to take Gonzalez's place on the active roster.

Fantasy Impact

Gonzalez had been removed from Sunday's game with the disc injury, and had missed 13 games in May with back issues. With just a .643 OPS this season, it looks like age has finally caught up to the slugger. He can be safely dropped in all formats.

Adrian Gonzalez drives in the lone run on Tuesday

Adrian Gonzalez went 1-for-3 with a walk and a RBI against the Nationals on Tuesday.

Fantasy Impact

Despite batting .265 with 22 RBIs this season, Gonzalez has seen his power disappear, as he only has connected on one HR. Overall, owners can still start Gonzalez when needed, but should look elsewhere for HRs.

Adrian Gonzalez goes 2-for-4 against Brewers

Adrian Gonzalez went 2-for-4 against the Brewers before being taken out for a pinch runner.

Fantasy Impact

Gonzalez is sporting a .262 AVG but his power has gone by the way side. Gonzalez does have 20 RBIs so he does have some use if you need someone to fit into a utility spot.
