Adrian Gonzalez went 1-for-4 with a walk and launched a two-run homer in the sixth inning to temporarily tie the game in what eventually was an extra-inning win over the Braves on Wednesday night.

The Braves opted for a lefty out of the bullpen on Wednesday, pulling Julio Teheran after just 75 pitches. Gonzalez made manager Fredi Gonzalez pay when he blasted a 404-foot homer to straight-away center to tie the game. His power numbers have taken a step backward since joining the Dodgers, but the 33-year-old slugger remains a quality fantasy first baseman and is hitting .328/.385/.500 this year with two homers and 10 RBI.
Apr 20 - 11:17 PM

Adrian Gonzalez went 3-for-4 with a pair of doubles off Jake Peavy on Thursday.

Gonzalez had something like 14 homers by this point of last season, so this doesn't quite compare. Still, he's 7-for-14 with four walks already.
Apr 7 - 7:53 PM

Adrian Gonzalez went 3-for-4 with three RBI in Monday's rout over the Padres.

All three hits were singles, as he drove in runs in the first, third and eighth innings. Gonzalez also added a walk. The Dodgers somehow managed to score 15 runs against the Padres without the aid of a home run, as they pounded out 17 hits and also benefited from a couple errors. Chase Utley, Justin Turner, Yasiel Puig and Joc Pederson also had multiple hits.
Apr 4 - 10:54 PM

Adrian Gonzalez connected for his first home run of the spring Friday against the Angels.

It was a solo shot off Jose Alvarez in the third inning. Gonzalez has been remarkably durable over the past 10 years and has reached at least 22 home runs and 90 RBI in each of his first three full seasons in Los Angeles. While he might not get mentioned among the top-tier fantasy first baseman these days, he remains a strong option.

Adrian Gonzalez (neck) is expected to make his Cactus League debut on Friday.

Mar 1 - 2:48 PM

Adrian Gonzalez (neck) was back on the field in Dodgers camp on Monday.

Gonzalez sat out of drills on Sunday due to a pinched nerve in his neck. It obviously wasn't serious. The veteran first baseman batted .275/.350/.480 with 28 home runs and 90 RBI in 156 games last year for Los Angeles.

Adrian Gonzalez sat out Sunday's workout due to a pinched nerve in his neck.

It's an ailment that Gonzalez has battled for years and just flared up on him again after baserunning drills on Saturday. He should be back in action in a day or two.

Adrian Gonzalez doubled and plated two runs Saturday in the Dodgers’ win over the Mets in Game 2 of the NLDS.

Gonzalez struck out three times on Saturday and looked pretty bad doing it, but he came through when the Dodgers needed him most. His bloop double to right brought home Chase Utley and Howie Kendrick to give the Dodgers a 4-2 lead in the seventh inning. Gonzalez will face Matt Harvey when the series moves to Citi Field for Game 3 on Monday.

Adrian Gonzalez went 1-for-4 and drove home the Dodgers lone run as they fell to the Mets in Game 1 of the NLDS on Friday evening.

After being shut down by Jacob deGrom for the first seven innings, the Dodgers were able to mount a rally against Tyler Clippard in the eighth. Howie Kendrick shut a double up the gap in left-center and Gonzalez followed with a sharp single to cash him in. It won't get any easier for the Mets on Saturday as they're set to do battle against Noah Syndergaard.
