Is Adrian Gonzalez going to the disabled list for the first time in his career? That’s my prediction, and it should happen on Friday, May 5, 2017. Gonzalez admitted to the LA Times that he should have started the season on the disabled list. Now with the able-bodied Cody Bombay Bellinger ready to man the defense at first base and more than ready to hit in the heart of the order, give Adrian some rest and recovery time on the disabled list, so he can get his “broken parts” back in order.
Joc Pederson will be coming off the DL on Friday. To make room for Joc, put Gonzalez on the DL rather than optioning Bombay back to AAA Oklahoma City.
