Dodgers Activate Starter After a Month's Absence

He's back just in time. 

The Los Angeles Dodgers have activated starter Tony Gonsolin from the 15-day injured list. 
Gonsolin rejoined the rotation on Monday against the Colorado Rockies. He was expected to go three innings in the outing in what was to be his final tune-up before the postseason. 

Gonsolin allowed one run over two innings in his start Monday against the Rockies. 

It was his first outing since the end of August, and was a successful one, considering he made it through with no issues. He threw 24-of-40 pitches for strikes and struck out three. 

Gonsolin was fantastic this season, registering a 2.14 ERA, 0.87 WHIP, and 119 strikeouts over 130 innings pitched. He had a 16-1 record in 24 starts. 

The question now is how the Dodgers will use Gonsolin in the postseason.
