Dodgers News: Dave Roberts Pushes Tony Gonsolin’s Return Timeline Back Again

Tony Gonsolin injured his ankle on March 6 after a spring training drill. He turned his ankle, and found himself out of the lineup for his scheduled spring training start.

The injury lingered, and it became clear that Gonsolin wasn’t going to be ready for Opening Day, however, manager Dave Roberts didn’t seem too worried about a long recovery.

As time went on, though, it became clear that Gonsolin may not be ready as soon as the team hoped. His target date was set for late-April.

Now, though, Roberts spoke to the media on Monday ahead of the first of three games against the Giants, and shared some bad news.

He said Gonsolin likely won’t be back until at least May, as it’ll be another two or three weeks before he even goes out on his rehab assignment. Oof.

This is typical for Dodgers injury timelines, as Roberts says it’s going to be one thing, but then it becomes another. I had a feeling that we were going to get bad news on Gonsolin’s injury, and clearly, it’s not recovering as quickly as they had hoped.

Gonsolin isn’t going to be back until at least May, which is really not good news for the Dodgers.

Michael Grove has struggled in his place, while Ryan Pepiot remains on the IL with no sign of a return.

We wish the best to Gonsolin as he recovers from his ankle injury, and hope he can start improving sooner rather than later.
