Dodgers News: Tony Gonsolin Taking the Next Steps in His Recovery From Ankle Injury

Dodgers RHP Tony Gonsolin remains on the injured list with the sprained ankle he suffered in spring training. Gonsolin has taken much longer to heal than initially expected, and on Thursday, Dave Roberts spoke to the media, and didn’t exactly share great news.

He said Gonsolin threw to hitters at Camelback Ranch, but it wasn’t very good, and he’s still a ways away from making a rehab start (per Bill Plunkett of the Orange County Register).

“It was okay,” Roberts said about Gonsolin’s pitching. “He got through it … which was the most important thing. I don’t think he threw his best. But that’s to be expected given it’s the first time he faced hitters.”

Roberts said Gonsolin is going to throw another bullpen session before facing live hitters again. Then, if all that goes well, he’ll begin his rehab assignment with Triple-A Oklahoma City.

The good news is Gonsolin hasn’t suffered any sort of setback, but the bad news is he’s not exactly close to making a return.

It sounds like the end of April target date is still in play, however, he’ll need to throw better in his bullpen session and the next time he faces live hitters before they can send him off to a rehab assignment.

  1. Guy gets a chance to be a big part of big league rotation on a good team and just before the bell rings, he twists his ankle running off a baseball field. Doesn’t bode well. If he’s going to do that kind of stuff, perhaps he should be part of the package going to Chicago to bring back Tim Anderson.
