Dodgers manager Dave Roberts said Saturday that he's only mildly concerned over Adrian Gonzalez' elbow injury.

While it doesn't sound like it's going to be a lingering issue, Roberts did say that he didn't want Gonzalez to start as many games in 2017 in an effort to keep him fresh later in the season. Gonzalez has averaged 159 games per year over his 11 full seasons in the big leagues.

Adrian Gonzalez won't swing a bat for two weeks due to a bout with tennis elbow.

It shouldn't be a long-term concern for the veteran first baseman, but Gonzalez's ability to play for Mexico in the World Baseball Classic is now in doubt. The Dodgers should have more on Gonzalez's status early next month. He batted .285/.349/.435 with 18 homers and 90 RBI for Los Angeles last season.

Adrian Gonzalez went 1-for-4 with a single in Wednesday's NLCS Game 4 loss to the Cubs.

Gonzalez drove in three runs over the first two games of the NLCS, but the Cubs have kept him in check over the last two. In Games 3 and 4, he has gone a combined 1-for-8. The veteran slugger will try to help his club to a 3-2 series advantage when he faces off with Jon Lester in Game 5 on Thursday.

Adrian Gonzalez clubbed a solo home run leading off the second inning on Sunday, powering the Dodgers to a 1-0 victory over the Cubs in Game 2 of the NLCS.

With the victory, the Dodgers have evened up the series at one game apiece as the series transitions to Los Angeles for Game 3 on Tuesday night. Gonzalez got ahead of Kyle Hendricks 1-0, then took him deep to left-center to give the Dodgers an early 1-0 lead. That would prove to be all of the offense the Dodgers required as Clayton Kershaw and Kenley Jansen combined to shut out the opposition. Gonzalez finished the day 1-for-3 and is now hitting .259/.310/.481 with a pair of homers and five RBI in the postseason.

Adrian Gonzalez went 2-for-4 with a pair of RBI in the Dodgers' loss to the Cubs Saturday in Game 1 of the NLCS.

It looked like Aroldis Chapman was going to pitch his way out of a bases-loaded jam in the eighth inning but Gonzalez had other ideas. The veteran slugged a single back up the middle, plating Andrew Toles from third and Chase Utley from second. Gonzalez had been hitless in four career at-bats against Chapman before Saturday. Gonzalez also singled in his first at-bat of the game against Jon Lester, though he ended the inning by getting gunned down at home plate. He’ll try to extend his postseason hitting streak to five Sunday in Game 2.

Adrian Gonzalez homered and doubled Wednesday in a losing cause against the Padres.

Adrian Gonzalez (sinus infection) is in the lineup for Wednesday's game against the Padres.

Gonzalez was lifted midway through Tuesday's contest due to a sinus infection. The ailment was not burdensome enough to require an additional day off, though. He is batting in his customary fourth spot on Wednesday.

Adrian Gonzalez exited Tuesday's loss to the Padres due to a sinus infection.

Gonzalez saw two at-bats before being lifted. He should be considered day-to-day moving forward, but there is little reason to believe this will cost him more than a game or two. If that.

Adrian Gonzalez delivered a game-winning double in the bottom of the ninth for the Dodgers against the Giants on Monday.

Hunter Pence seemed to have a play on Gonzalez's fly to the wall in right, but he couldn't come up with it, and Corey Seager, who held up thinking the ball would be caught, was able to come around from second. It was Gonzalez's lone hit of the day. After a big August surge, he's hit just .210 with one homer and four walks in his past 22 games.

Adrian Gonzalez went 1-for-3 with a pair of strikeouts in Sunday's loss to the Marlins.

Gonzalez did manage one of the Dodgers' four hits on the afternoon (all four went for singles), but he fanned twice against Jose Urena in what was a punch-less offensive effort by the boys from Hollywood. The veteran slugger has been his typically dependable self this year, slashing .292/.355/.488 with 17 homers and 78 RBI across 507 at-bats.

Adrian Gonzalez is out of the Dodgers' starting lineup on Tuesday night against the Rockies.
