Dodgers "Don't Feel Good" About Star Pitcher Being Ready For Opening Day

Los Angeles Dodgers starting pitcher Tony Gonsolin suffered a sprained left ankle during drills in spring camp.

While X-rays have come back negative for fractures, Gonsolin's ankle remains swollen and tender, and he will not be throwing for several more days.

Dodgers manager Dave Roberts has expressed uncertainty about Gonsolin's readiness for Opening Day, stating that he "doesn't feel good" about his chances.  

At this point, it appears likely that Gonsolin will start the season on the injured list, although the positive news is that he should be able to resume throwing once the swelling subsides.

Last year, Gonsolin had an All-Star campaign for the Dodgers with a 16-1 record and a career-best 2.14 ERA in 130.1 innings over 24 starts.

However, he was injured late in the year and the workload appeared to be catching up to him after a previous career high of only 55.2 innings pitched in 2021.
