Adrian Gonzalez close to returning

Adrian Gonzalez hasn't played for the Dodgers since June 11th because of a herniated disc is 2-for-5 with two RBIs in his first two games of his rehab assignment.

Fantasy Impact

It'll be nice to see Gonzalez back in the Dodgers lineup, but don't expect much production from him. The Dodgers will more than likely ease him back into things so he doesn't reinjure himself again.

Adrian Gonzalez to begin rehab assignment

Adrian Gonzalez is expected to begin a rehab assignment next week.

Fantasy Impact

Gonzalez doesn't have a clear starting role to return to after his disappointing start to the season and Cody Bellinger's quick rise. If the veteran is able to return this season he's likely to serve as a platoon or bench player for the Dodgers.

Adrian Gonzalez may not return before August

Dave Roberts report that Adrian Gonzalez is still dealing with back issues and is still getting stiff.

Fantasy Impact

Gonzalez hasn't sung a bat since landing on the DL June 13th. Gonzalez is dealing with a herniated disk, which sapped his power and reduced the speed of his swing. Roberts does expect Gonzalez back before the playoffs, killing any concern that the Dodgers would be without him the rest of the year. Gonzalez stated he may have to retire at the end of the year if things do not improve.

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.
