Dodgers News: Tony Gonsolin Heads Back to Camelback Ranch, Inching Closer to Return

A day before Michael Grove is set to take his place in the Dodgers’ starting rotation, injured pitcher Tony Gonsolin took another step toward his return. At Dodger Stadium on Sunday, the right-hander threw 40 pitches over two simulated innings. If he comes in feeling no ill effects, he’ll head back to Arizona to face hitters at Camelback Ranch on Wednesday.

The big hurdle for Tony is building up his pitch count. When he injured his ankle in an unlucky incident early in camp, he had made just one start and had thrown just 2 innings at that point. His injury came one day before he was supposed to make his second appearance of the spring.

Gonsolin was a major piece of the Los Angeles rotation last season, posting a 16-1 record with a 2.14 ERA over 24, all career highs. Thankfully the first turn through the starting rotation was a success for the Dodgers. Julio Urias, Dustin May, Clayton Kershaw, and Noah Syndergaard combined to allow just 4 earned runs over 25 innings.

The bad news is that the Dodgers have won 2 and lost 2 games to open the season.
