A forearm injury that sidelined Tony Gonsolin proved detrimental at the end of the season. Prior to going down Gonsolin was regarded as one of the top pitchers in the league, but that isn’t enough for Gonsolin to have no desire to improve.
The Dodgers are going to rely on Gonsolin more than ever with the departures of Tyler Anderson and Andrew Heaney. The Dodgers tried addressing their depth issues with the addition of Noah Syndergaard, but it can be argued fans aren’t quite comfortable yet.
A huge roster turnover and plenty of runs missing from the 2022 season, the pitching staff will have to be at the top of their game. Fortunately, the team still can rely on their leaders Clayton Kershaw and Julio Urias.
Gonsolin wants to be the leader as well and reveals that despite the success when healthy, he has worked on new mechanics to avoid another major injury (via Los Angeles Dodgers).
“Just trying to get stronger over the offseason, get everything feeling good, feeling right. Doing a little mechanical changes to try and stay healthy all year and that’s the goal, to stay healthy all year and let the results show for themselves.”
Anyway to keep Gonsolin on the field longer is good news for Dodgers fans. With plenty of time to rehab his forearm and off-season training in full swing it’s a relieving thought to know Goose may be back soon and better than ever.
