Adrian Gonzalez had a two-run homer, a two-run single and an RBI single in the Dodgers' 6-0 win Friday.

Gonzalez drove in Hanley Ramirez three times and finished with five RBI, more than doubling his previous season total of four. He's just 10-for-41 for the season, but included among those 10 hits are three homers and four doubles.
Apr 12 - 12:53 AM

Adrian Gonzalez smashed his first home run of the 2014 season in a losing effort against the Giants on Friday.

The solo shot off Ryan Vogelsong in the fourth inning was his only hit in four trips to the plate on the afternoon. He's off to a bit of a slow start this year, hitting just .143/.240/.333 with three RBI. Hitting cleanup in the powerhouse Dodgers lineup, he should have no problem accumulating an impressive number of RBI again this season.

Adrian Gonzalez was back in the lineup for Saturday's game and went 1-for-3 against the Angels.

Gonzalez left Thursday's game as a precaution after getting hit on the elbow by a pitch.

Adrian Gonzalez will play Opening Night against Arizona on Saturday, Dodgers skipper Don Mattingly said.

Gonzalez is suffering from lower back tightness that he thinks came from sightseeing. He hit in the cage Thursday but was held out of workouts. The MLB season will kick off at the Sydney Cricket Ground.

Adrian Gonzalez left in the fourth inning of Thursday's exhibition against Team Australia with a tight lower back.

Gonzalez appeared to tweak his back on a 1-1 swing in the top of the fourth inning and the Dodgers' trainers pulled him as a precautionary measure before the bottom of that frame. It's a minor issue, and he is fully expected to be in the starting lineup for the Dodgers' season-opener Saturday against the Diamondbacks. The game will be played at the Sydney Cricket Ground.
Mar 20 - 9:02 AM

Adrian Gonzalez went 1-for-2 and drove home a pair of runs as the Dodgers and Rockies played to a 2-2 draw on Sunday.

Gonzalez wraps up Cactus League play hitting .303/.400/.485 with a homer and five RBI. He's being selected after the top seven first base options are off the board, making him a terrific value in fantasy drafts. He's plated 99 or more runs in each of the last seven seasons, and should have no problem continuing that trend in 2014.
Mar 16 - 10:37 PM

Adrian Gonzalez went 2-for-3 with a home run and two runs scored against the Reds on Wednesday.

Gonzalez hit the home run, his first of the spring, off Reds reliever Sam LeCure in the sixth inning. He's 5-for-12 through the first few games of spring and appears to be in midseason form already. The 31-year-old looks primed for another big season as the Dodgers' first sacker.
Mar 6 - 12:01 AM

Adrian Gonzalez, Paul Goldschmidt and Anthony Rizzo have been named finalists for the National League Gold Glove award at first base.

Gonzalez is a three-time winner, which probably makes him the favorite by default. It's the first time Goldschmidt and Rizzo have been named finalists. The winner will be announced next week.

Adrian Gonzalez went 3-for-4 with two home runs as the Dodgers avoided elimination with a 6-4 win over the Cardinals in Wednesday's Game 5 of the NLCS.

Gonzalez is one of the few hitters in the Dodgers' lineup that is healthy and dangerous, and he continues to torment Cardinals pitching in this series. Gonzalez scored the first run of the game after a single in the second inning, and he later crushed a Joe Kelly pitch 450 feet according to ESPN's HitTracker. His second shot of the day was also a no-doubter, off reliever John Axford. The first baseman is now hitting .353/.450/.824 through the first five games of the series that now heads back to St. Louis for Friday's Game 6.

Adrian Gonzalez singled and smacked a two-run homer in Thursday's win over the Braves.

Gonzalez's longball to dead center field in the third inning extended the Dodgers' lead to 4-0, which was more than Clayton Kershaw needed. Mark Ellis, Yasiel Puig and A.J. Ellis also had a two-hit night, while Ellis, Skip Schumaker and Hanley Ramirez knocked in runs in addition to A-Gone's dinger. The Dodgers and Braves will match up again on Friday.

Adrian Gonzalez is out of the Dodgers' starting lineup on Thursday due to minor quad discomfort.

It was initially announced as a routine day off, but Dodgers manager Don Mattingly cleared that up with the media before first pitch. Gonzalez is available to pinch-hit and play defense, and should return to action on Friday night. "We don't think it's major," Mattingly said.

It's just a day off. Gonzalez is batting .294/.342/.462 with 21 homers and 98 RBI in 147 games this year for the Dodgers, who have basically locked up the NL West.
