The back hasn't really been an issue to this point, so unless it progresses into something more it's likely not something that will give him problems going forward. Justin Turner started at first base in Gonzalez' place.

Adrian Gonzalez had three hits and drove in three runs against the Braves on Thursday.

Gonzalez reclaimed the NL RBI lead for the moment, pushing past Giancarlo Stanton (83 to 82). It should surprise no one that he also leads the majors in at-bats with runners in scoring position. Gonzalez has been very solid in the middle of the Dodgers lineup, but his RBI total is very much a product of opportunity.

Gonzalez has been especially effective over his last four games, recording nine hits in his past 14 at-bats to raise his overall line to .269/.332/.459.

Gonzalez has five hits and four RBI over the past two games after going just 1-for-17 to begin the month, so it looks like he's back on track.
