Los Angeles Dodgers put All-Star Tony Gonsolin on IL with right forearm strain

The Los Angeles Dodgers have placed All-Star right-handed Tony Gonsolin on their 15-day injured list due to a right forearm strain.

The Dodgers recalled righthander Michael Grove in a corresponding move to replace Gonsolin, who was to start Monday-evening’s game with the Miami Marlins. Grove will now start in place of Gonsolin.

Gonsolin has anchored the Dodgers’ rotation this season, leading the National League with a 16-1 record and a 2.10 ERA. He struckout 116 in 128⅓ innings and his .169 batting average against Gonsolin is the lowest in MLB this season.

The news comes less than a week after the Dodgers star’s right-handed Walker Buehler underwent Tommy John surgery for the second time in his career, officially ending his season and likely keeping him sidelined for 2023 as well.

Grove, 25, has no decisions and a 5.79 ERA in two games (one start) for the Dodgers. He made his MLB debut on May 15, facing the Marlins for the first time.

Grove is 0-4 this season with a 3.48 ERA in 17 games (15 starts) between Double-A Tulsa and Oklahoma City.
