Latest Update Gonzalez homers and drives in three in loss Wed Jul, 23, 07:11 AM
Owns a sweet swing, huge power and a willingness to take walks. Can be clutch when driving in runs. Has very soft hands and is good defensively at first base.
Flaws: : Lacks speed and swings a little too freely at times, which sometimes limits his batting average from reaching top-tier levels. Is also lacking in range at first.
Gonzalez had himself a nice game on Monday night and is now riding a four-game hit streak since returning from the All-Star Break. After smacking eight home runs in the month of April, Gonzalez has hit just six long balls since which is not encouraging, but even with a long cold streak he is still ranked third in the National League in RBI with 62 through 367 at-bats. Whether or not his home run stroke resurfaces he should continue to be one of the better run-producers at his position moving forward. Analyst: Matthew Beck
AGon saved his one hit for when it counted most as he drove in his 61st RBI of the season and NL leading 38th on the road. The win earned the Dodgers a tie for first place in the NL West with Giants and clutch hit will hopefully kick start a more consistent second of half for the Dodgers first baseman who is currently hitting just .250 but does have 14 home runs. He finished last season with a .293 average but only 22 home runs, a mark he should obviously surpass this season.Analyst: Michael Pichan
The 32-year old slugger has been a bill of good health for most of the season having played all but four of the Dodgers 87 games, thus erroring on the side of caution with Gonzalez makes sense. There is no word yet on AGon's status for Thursday.Analyst: Michael PichanMore Experts..
