This is not a surprise and has been the expectation since Gonsolin suffered his ankle sprain. How long Gonsolin will be out of the rotation is still debatable. It would seem a mid-April return would be the best-case scenario, but no one should be surprised if May is the target date.
Gonsolin was fantastic last season. He went 16-1 with a 2.14 ERA and 0.87 WHIP and struck out 119 batters in just 130.1 innings pitched. He is not the household name that Clayton Kershaw is, but he may end up being the ace of the Dodgers’ staff upon his return.
The Dodgers are still -130 to win the National League West, with the San Diego Padres next in line at +130. You can find the odds for every team to win their division on the FanDuel Sportsbook.
