Description: Dodgers first baseman Adrian Gonzalez is 4-for-29 (.138 with six strikeouts versus Gaints left-hander Madison Bumgarner.
Insight: Gonzalez cracked the 100-RBI mark again this season and his 23 homers is his best total since 2011. This matchup, however, should probably be avoided.

Insight: Gonzalez is hitting .278 with only 20 home runs and 94 RBI. He should be a lock for his fifth consecutive 100-RBI season.
 
8/31/2014 10:14:00 PM
Description: Dodgers first baseman Adrian Gonzalez recorded four hits on Sunday against the Padres.
Insight: Gonzalez had a hit in every game of the weekend series against the Padres, but was just 2-for-10 in the first two games combined. Gonzalez is hitting .279 with only 19 home runs, but he does have 35 doubles and close to the top of the league with 91 RBI.

Description: Los Angeles first baseman Adrian Gonzalez is a lifetime .222 hitter (4-for-18) against Arizona starter Wade Miley.

He is also 6-for-9 with two doubles, a home run and seven RBI in the last three games. With those numbers, it might be hard to sit him, but be aware of his lack of success against Miley.

Cold6/15/2014 11:32:00 AM
Description: Los Angeles first baseman Adrian Gonzalez is stuck in a 14-for-80 (.175) slump with zero homers, and he'll face Bronson Arroyo of the Arizona Diamondbacks on Sunday.
Insight: Arroyo has limited Gonzalez to five hits in 32 at-bats, a .156 average. We'd avoid the Dodgers first baseman Sunday.
 
Cold6/9/2014 3:24:00 PM
Description: Los Angeles first baseman Adrian Gonzalez is not in Monday's lineup.
Insight: No injury, just a routine day off. The bad news is that Gonzalez is struggling with the bat (.247), particularly against left-handers (.164). With the left-handed Tony Cingrani on the hill, it's a good time to let him rest.
