Dodgers: Injury Update on Gonsolin, Almonte, Treinen and More

The injury bug has hit the Dodgers pitching staff mightily in the 2022 season. Major pieces are out for the season and many have missed a significant amount of time.

However, even with all these injuries, the Dodgers have managed to have the best record in the MLB. Not exactly the recipe you want to have the best record, but I won’t complain. 

Tony Gonsolin has had the best season of his professional career posting a 16-1 record, 2.10 ERA, 116 K’s in 128.1 IP in 2022. Unfortunately, the first-time All-Star suffered a forearm injury back in late August and has been sidelined since then. Today, Dodgers beat writer, Jack Harris shared some reassuring news about the Dodgers right-hander.

A Gonsolin return would be a big help to the rotation. Let’s hope he’s back on time and producing like how he was pre-injury. 

In other news, OC Register’s Bill Plunkett has an update on relievers Yency Almonte, Blake Treinen and Brusdar Graterol.

That is great news coming from the Dodgers. Pitching is essential to winning championships and it seems like we’ll be getting back some good arms just in the nick of time. 

Almonte’s last appearance was against the Giants on August 3rd. This season he has posted a 1.15 ERA collecting 30 strikeouts across 31.1 innings and also owns a 0.89 WHIP. 

Right-handed flame thrower Graterol last pitched on August 28th and owns a 3.02 ERA with 39 strikeouts across 42.2 innings of work. Treinen, who has only appeared in 5 games this season, has a 1-1 record, 1.80 ERA, 0.40 WHIP, and 6 strikeouts. He last pitched on September 5th. 

Lastly, veteran David Price looks to be ready to return to the squad when they return to LA to play against the Diamondbacks. Price, who might be closing out his final year before retiring, has also had a great year posting one of his lowest ERA’s of his career at 2.58 with 37 strikeouts across 38 innings. 

Things are looking up for the pitching staff, let’s hope they stay healthy now.

    • Kershaw, Urias, Heaney, T.Anderson and Dustin May is hardly thin. Maybe Gonsolin too. It’ll be a 4 man rotation with two guys able to piggyback starts. Price is a multi- innings guy as well. Pitching isn’t an issue this year, unlike last year. No bullpen games. Speaking of bullpen, lots of big arms coming back in Almonte, Trienen and Graterol.

  1. I’M SORRY BUT I’M STILL TRYING TO WRAP MY HEAD AROUND STARTERS GOING 5/6 INNINGS AND RELIEVERS GOING 1 INNING EVERYOTHER OR SECOND DAY. I’M FROM THE OLD SCHOOL WHERE YOU WENT 9 AND PITCHED EVERY 4TH DAY. DON’T GET ME WRONG; I’M IN AWE AS TO WHAT THE DODGER BULLPEN HAS ACCOMPISHED. EVEN MORE SO WHEN YOU THINK OF ALL THE INJURIES TO THE STARTERS.
