Possible return in August
PLos Angeles Dodgers
June 26, 2022
Gonzalez is rehabbing from an elbow injury and is not expected to return to action before August, according to Jack Harris of the Los Angeles Times.
ANALYSIS
Manager Dave Roberts said Saturday that Gonzalez has resumed throwing, and this is clearly an encouraging sign after he underwent left elbow surgery in mid-May. Roberts is optimistic that the southpaw will rejoin the Dodgers sometime in August. He posted a 3.57 ERA across 44 appearances in 2021.

2021 Fantasy Outlook
Gonzalez wasn't on many radars heading into 2020 despite impressing in a run through three minor-league levels the previous season. The talented rookie failed to make the Dodgers' Opening Day roster but eventually emerged as LA's top lefty reliever, finishing with a 1.33 ERA and 0.74 WHIP. Gonzalez's 1.67 FIP nearly matched his minuscule ERA thanks to peripherals that fly off the charts. He held hitters to a .214 xwOBA and .229 xSLG, both top-10 marks among MLB relievers. Gonzalez also gave up zero barrels all season, registered a minuscule 2.5 BB% and yielded a .063 average against his slider. The Dodgers were not shy about going to him in the postseason, and Gonzalez ended up as the winning pitcher in the decisive game of the World Series. He'll be hard-pressed to match his magical rookie campaign but should fill a high-leverage role with the opportunity to build upon his success.
