Dodgers disable Gonsolin for right forearm strain

Dodgers right-hander Tony Gonsolin was scheduled to start Monday against the Marlins. Now, though, the Dodgers will have to be without Gonsolin for at least a few weeks after the team placed him on the 15-day disabled list with a strained right forearm, a move retroactive to Friday.

It is unclear how severe the injury is and how it occurred. Right-hander Michael Grove was brought up from Triple-A Oklahoma City and will start for the Dodgers in the series finale at Miami.

Gonsolin has been one of the best pitchers in the Majors this season. He leads the National League with 16 wins and a 2.10 ERA. The .169 batting average against Gonsolin is the lowest in the Majors this season. With 128 1/3 innings of work, however, Gonsolin has already passed his previous cap for most innings in a season at the major league level.

In Gonsolin’s absence, the Dodgers will continue to rely on Julio Cesar Urias, Tyler Anderson, Andrew Heaney and Clayton Kershaw, who is likely to come off the disabled list to start Thursday against the Mets, though that has yet to be officially announced. .
