Dodgers Starter Expected To Be Healthy And Part Of Season-Opening Rotation

He was having a fantastic season before suffering a right forearm strain in late August, sidelining him until early October.

According to Fabian Ardaya of The Athletic, Los Angeles Dodgers starter Tony Gonsolin is healthy and expected to be part of the team's season-opening starting rotation.

The good news is that Gonsolin did not require offseason surgery and should be fully healthy entering spring training.

The twenty-eight-year-old posted a sparkling 2.14 ERA, 0.88 WHIP, and 119 strikeouts over 130.1 innings. He made 24 starts and held a league-leading 16-1 record.

The four-year veteran is a former ninth-round pick of the Dodgers in the 2016 MLB Draft.

Gonsolin more than doubled his previous career-high in innings pitched last year, going from 55 to 130, so expect the team to be a little looser with his innings restriction this season.
