The first base of the Los Angeles Dodgers, the Mexican Adrian Gonzalez, entered the list of injured for the first time in his 14 years in the Major Leagues due to discomfort in the right elbow.
” Titan ” Gonzalez played 1,774 games without getting on the disabled list, the most among active players.
The move was made Friday before the first game of the series against the San Diego Padres.
To take the place of Gonzalez on the roster, the Dodgers reactivated outfielder Joc Pederson, who was absent with ailments in the right groin.
Manager Dave Roberts said lefty Clayton Kershaw will open on Saturday rather than Sunday, as originally scheduled. The change is due to right-hander Brandon McCarthy, who will now pitch on Sunday, had a slight left shoulder injury during a weightlifting session.
