Adrian Gonzalez drives in three more for Dodgers on Saturday
|by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com|
|(12:37 am ET) The 2015 RBI Machine, otherwise known as Adrian Gonzalez, was at it again Saturday night.
The Dodgers slugger not only boasts a ridiculous batting average of .523, which actually went down in the game but he added three RBI to his total, giving him 14 in 11 games. He brought home a run with a fielder's choice in the third and singled in two in the fifth. Gonzalez owns an eye-popping slugging percentage of 1.045.
He has struck out just three times in 44 at-bats on the year.
Adrian Gonzalez on red-hot start: It has to do with work in the cage
|by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com|
|(4/17/15) Dodgers first baseman Adrian Gonzalez credits his simple approach to his red-hot start at the plate this season, per the Los Angeles Times.
"It has to do a lot with work in the cage, work in BP," Gonzalez said. "I haven't really been trying to hit home runs in BP. I've just been trying to hit line drives up the middle. I think it's played out, especially when I've been facing lefties, where I've been hitting the ball up the middle, the other way, more than I did last year. Righties, they try to pound me in, I'm ready for the fastball, but my mentality's not pull. It's just be ready for the fastball. Stay with the mentality, keep it as simple as I can because things are going well."
Gonzalez started the season with five home runs in his first three games. He became the first player since Jackie Robinson back in 1952 to reach base two or more times in each game. He leads all of baseball with a .528 batting average (19 for 36) with six walks, six doubles, five home runs, nine RBI and 10 runs scored through his first 10 games played.
"You try to stay focused, try to keep that good streak going, the same mentality, don’t change a lot of what you’re doing right, try to ride the wave as long as you can, ride the hot streak," Gonzalez said. "We know this game is about ups and downs and there are going to be downs in the season, so the longer I can keep up a hot streak, the better the year will be at the end of the year and the better we'll be as a team."

|by Jason Butt | CBSSports.com|
|(4/12/15) Dodgers first baseman Adrian Gonzalez concluded his first week of the season with two more hits in Sunday's 7-4 win over the Diamondbacks.

Dodgers' Adrian Gonzalez slugs three HRs, makes history
|by R.J. White | CBSSports.com|
|(4/9/15) Dodgers first baseman Adrian Gonzalez went 4 for 4 with three home runs and four RBI in his team's 7-4 win over the Padres Wednesday.
Gonzalez opened the season with home runs on back-to-back days, and his trifecta Wednesday makes him the first player in major-league history to hit five home runs in his team's first three games, per Elias Sports. He's racked up three or more hits in each of his first three games and is 10 for 13 after his first series of the season. Gonzalez will look to keep rolling with a weekend series in Arizona on tap.
Dodgers 1B Adrian Gonzalez homers in first two games
|by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com|
|(4/8/15) Dodgers first baseman Adrian Gonzalez hit a solo home run in the eighth inning Tuesday against the Padres, tying the game at 3. It was his second home run in as many days.
Gonzalez is off to a blistering start, as he has totaled three hits in each of the first two games. He is batting .667 (6 for 9) with two doubles, two home runs, three RBI, four runs and two strikeouts.
|2014 summary: Even though Adrian Gonzalez put up his lowest batting average (.276) since becoming an everyday player, 2014 turned out to be a bounceback season for the 11-year veteran. Gonzalez hit 25-plus home runs and 40-plus doubles for the first time since 2011, and he finished as the fifth-ranked first baseman in standard points leagues and sixth in Rotisserie value. In addition to hitting for more power, Gonzalez had his usual strong run production numbers, driving in 116 runs while scoring 83 for the Dodgers.|
Playing time status: Gonzalez has played in more than 155 games in each of the last nine seasons. There aren't many players who are safer bets for playing time.
2015 outlook: Gonzalez's 2014 season could have easily been better than it was. He was among the major league leaders in line drive rate, and he became less of a pull hitter, yet his .301 BABIP was his lowest in five years. The 32-year-old looks like a prime candidate to improve his batting average. Even if his power and run production numbers regress a little, Gonzalez should finish among the top 10 first basemen in 2015, and he's worth drafting in the latter portion of the early rounds.
