Adrian Gonzalez activated from DL, in starting lineup Thursday

Adrian Gonzalez has been activated from the DL and will be starting at 1B, batting sixth when the Dodgers take the field against the Marlins on Thursday night.

Fantasy Impact

Gonzalez has been out since May 3 with elbow and back injuries. He will resume duties as the primary first basemen with Cody Bellinger shifting to the outfield. Gonzalez wasn't hitting well before landing on the DL with a .255 average and no home runs in 29 games. He should only be on active rosters in 12-team or deeper leagues.

Adrian Gonzalez to begin rehab assignment

Adrian Gonzalez will begin his rehab assignment with the Dodgers' Single-A affiliate on Tuesday. He is expected to rejoin the team by the end of the week.

Fantasy Impact

Gonzalez is off to a very slow start, but there is hope that with the time off to focus on his injuries he'll be able to return closer to previous form. He's expected to return as the team's regular first baseman, bumping rookie Cody Bellinger back to left field for the time being.

Adrian Gonzalez heads to the disabled list for the first time in his career

For the first time in his career, Adrian Gonzalez is headed to the disabled list. The Dodgers placed the first basement on the 10-day DL. On Wednesday, Gonzalez revealed to the Los Angeles Times that he has been playing with a herniated disk in his back. Joc Pederson was activated from the disabled list on Friday to take his spot on the 25-man roster, and young phenom Cody Bellinger is expected to see most of the time at first base.

Fantasy Impact

While Gonzalez is headed to the disabled list, the real news here for fantasy is that Pederson is being activated and Bellinger is not getting sent down to the minors just yet. Gonzalez has been struggling at the plate this season, and it is fair to wonder if his injury played a part in that. If Bellinger keeps up his hot start, Gonzalez may not have an everyday spot in the lineup when he returns.

Adrian Gonzalez not at full strength

Adrian Gonzalez has been bother by tendinitis in his right forearm all season.

Fantasy Impact

Gonzalez has never been on the DL is his career and he is trying to manage the pain in order to keep that streak going. If he does land on the DL, Cody Bellinger would start at 1B.

Adrian Gonzalez gets it going against Diamondbacks in series finale

Adrian Gonzalez went 2-for-4 with two doubles, two RBI and a run scored against the Diamondbacks on Sunday.

Fantasy Impact

AGon certainly hasn't looked like a middle of the order threat this season, posting a .312 wOBA, 100 wRC+ and .066 ISO. He isn't hitting the ball very hard (28.0%) and his line drive rate (18.0%) is down. Fantasy owners might need to start looking for 1B depth if they're relying on Gonzalez. Dodgers' manager Dave Roberts is dropping Gonzalez down in the order or benching him when the Dodgers are facing a left-handed starter.
