Dodgers-Diamondbacks Preview

A taxed pitching staff and injuries to a pair of starters has the Los Angeles Dodgers poised to start right-hander Tony Gonsolin on Friday night in the second game of a four-game series against the Arizona Diamondbacks in Phoenix.

Gonsolin, 4-2 with a 2.93 ERA last season, is in line to be added to the Dodgers' active roster prior to the Friday contest. He faced the Diamondbacks in his major league debut last June, allowing six runs (four earned) on six hits in four innings and taking the loss in an 8-2 Arizona victory.

The Dodgers are without three members of their rotation, Clayton Kershaw, Alex Wood and David Price.
