Dodgers News: Tony Gonsolin Qualifies for Super-2 Classification

Tony Gonsolin had a breakout season for the Dodgers in 2022. He shattered his career-high with 16 wins, and had a career-best 2.14 ERA in 130.1 innings pitched. He struggled with injuries down the stretch, which largely stemmed from his high innings total, as his previous career-high was 55.2 in 2021. However, he had an incredible breakout year, and has now qualified for arbitration.

Gonsolin qualified for the Super-2 Classification of arbitration, which is for players who are among the top 22 percent of players, in terms of service time, who have amassed between two and three years in the Majors. Gonsolin’s career year definitely helped him qualify for arbitration, and will put him in line for a nice payday this offseason.

In 2022, the right-hander made just above the major league minimum of $700,000, earning $720,000, according to Cots Contracts.

The Dodgers will work with Gonsolin in the offseason on building up his innings, as he’s expected to be a key contributor in the rotation again next season.

They’ll need him to be as dominant in September and October as he was in the beginning of the year if the Dodgers want a shot at a World Series run next season.

  1. YES! If they can build up Gonsolin, bring back Anderson, Kershaw & bring Dustin May back strong and healthy we should be in great shape waiting for Buehler’s return!
