Los Angeles Dodgers All-Star Pitcher Suffers Ankle Injury

Los Angeles Dodgers starting pitcher Tony Gonsolin suffered a left ankle injury during a drill in spring training on Monday.

Gonsolin rolled his ankle while doing fielding drills and was immediately attended to by the team's training staff before heading back into the clubhouse.

The extent of the injury is currently unclear, but it has been confirmed that Gonsolin will not make his scheduled Cactus League start on Wednesday.

Despite the setback, the Dodgers are optimistic that the injury won't significantly impact Gonsolin's availability for the start of the regular season. Manager Dave Roberts believes that Gonsolin is built up enough to make a full recovery in time for Opening Day.

As of now, Gonsolin is considered day-to-day and not scheduled to have any imaging done, although that could change depending on his progress in the coming days. 

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.
