Los Angeles Dodgers put All-Star Tony Gonsolin in IL with proper arm pressure

The Los Angeles Dodgers have put the All-Star in the right hand Tony Gonsolin on the 15-day injury list due to right arm strain.

The Dodgers called on left-handed Michael Grove to replace Gonsolin, who will start Monday night’s game at the Miami Marlins. Grove will now start at Gonsolin’s place.

Gonsolin has anchored the Dodgers rotation this season, leading the National League with a 16-1 record and a 2.10 ERA. He has 116 strikeouts over 128⅓ innings, and his .169 stroke average against Gonsolin is his lowest in MLB this season.

The news comes less than a week after the Dodgers star Walker Buehler underwent Tommy John surgery for the second time in his career, officially ending his season and likely keeping him out for 2023 as well.

Grove, 25, has no decisions and a 5.79 ERA in two games (one starting) for the Dodgers. He made his MLB debut on May 15 and faced the Marlins for the first time.

Grove is 0-4 with a 3.48 ERA in 17 games (15 starts) this season between Double-A Tulsa and Oklahoma City.
