Dodgers News: Tony Gonsolin’s First Rehab Start Scheduled for Thursday, Target Date Set

A bit of good news out of Dodger Stadium on Monday as injured starting pitcher Tony Gonsolin took a big step toward his return to a big league mound… by actually pitching off of one. The right-hander threw a 32 pitch bullpen session and left himself set to head out on a minor league rehab assignment this week.

Mike DiGiovanna on the LA Times was among those to share the news on Twitter.

Gonsolin has been sidelined since the second week of the spring after rolling his ankle during fielding drills. Back in LA on Monday, he tossed the 30 pitch session and even mixed in some fielding work.

If all goes well over his two rehab outings, Tony could re-join the rotation by the time the Dodgers face the Padres in May or even sooner.

Other Injury News

Dave Roberts also shared an update on another injured right-hander in Ryan Pepiot. As it stands, the rookie hasn’t picked up a baseball since injuring his oblique leading up to opening day. There’s currently no timetable for his return.

  1. Getting Gonsolin back is great news-,if he pitches like last season. Releasing Trevor Bauer was stupid.
