Adrian Gonzalez is not in the Dodgers' lineup for Wednesday's game against the Giants.

Gonzalez is simply getting a day off against a tough lefty in Madison Bumgarner. The first baseman has been killing the ball in the early going, slashing .442/.508/.885 through 13 games. Justin Turner started at first base for the Dodgers Wednesday.
Apr 22 - 6:27 PM

Adrian Gonzalez went 3-for-4 with two doubles and three runs scored versus the Rockies on Friday.

Even though the homer binge ended quickly, Gonzalez is still batting a robust .550 through 40 at-bats. He has six doubles in his last five games, and he's already scored 13 runs in 10 games despite still running like he's Adrian Gonzalez.
Apr 18 - 1:53 AM

Adrian Gonzalez hit three solo home runs in Wednesday's 7-4 win over the Padres.

Gonzalez finished a perfect 4-for-4 with four RBI. He had a chance to tie the major league record for home runs in a game when he stepped to the plate in the sixth inning, but instead settled for a measly RBI single. The veteran first baseman also scored three runs. This was his third straight game with a home run and he now has five on the year. Gonzalez has hit the ground running and it's not inconceivable that he could top the 27 long balls he hit last season, though he's most likely not going to finish with the 270 home runs he's currently on pace for. Most likely.

Adrian Gonzalez had another great night at the plate, finishing 3-for-4 with an RBI double and a home run in Tuesday's loss to the Padres.

He then hit a game-tying solo home run off of Joaquin Benoit in the bottom of the eighth. Gonzalez went 3-for-5 with a double and a solo home run on Opening Day as well, so he's off to a terrific start to the 2015 season.

Apr 6 - 7:55 PM

Adrian Gonzalez went 1-for-2 with a pair of RBI as the Dodgers fell to the Giants in Cactus League play on Friday.

His first inning double off Chris Heston plated the Dodgers first two runs of the evening. The reigning National League RBI Champion is off to a slow start this spring, hitting .244 (11-for-45) with two homers and nine RBI. He should once again be a solid source of run production in the middle of the Dodgers lineup.
Mar 28 - 12:55 AM

Adrian Gonzalez belted a pair of home runs in Saturday's exhibition shutout of the Rangers.

Gonzalez hit a solo home run in the third inning off of Anthony Ranaudo and another solo shot in the fifth against Lisalverto Bonilla. They're Gonzalez's first two homers of the spring. He's been a bit slow to start, entering Saturday's action batting .161 (5-for-31) but he should still be counted on for elite offense in 2015.
