Adrian Gonzalez expects to play in season opener


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(3/20/2014) Dodgers first baseman Adrian Gonzalez was removed from an exhibition game against Team Australia in the fourth inning Thursday because of lower back tightness. However, Gonzalez doesn't expect the injury to keep him from playing in Saturday's season opener against the Diamondbacks in Australia.

"I need to rest, get off my feet," Gonzalez said, per MLB.com. "I've done a lot of walking around the city. I'll be good [for Saturday night]. I'm positive I'll feel better tomorrow."

Gonzalez said he first started to feel the injury during pregame stretching, but he was hoping it would improve. Manager Don Mattingly said he "feels good" about Gonzalez's chances of playing this weekend.

"It actually got tighter," Gonzalez said. "I swung at a pitch in the second at-bat, and it didn't feel good. I finished the at-bat because I didn't want to take myself out of the game in the middle of the at-bat."


Adrian Gonzalez looking to return to more patient approach


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(3/12/2014) Dodgers first baseman Adrian Gonzalez has drawn four walks in 22 spring at-bats and has a .423 on-base percentage through nine games. Getting on base more via a free pass is something Gonzalez is working on, per The Los Angeles Times.

"I'm not going to go up there looking for a walk, but I do think I can get back to walking more," Gonzalez said.

When Gonzalez was with the Padres, he was an OBP machine. He led the majors in 2009 with 119 walks and had a .374 on-base percentage in five seasons with the Padres. Though, the last two seasons his OBP has been .343, and Gonzalez said that had a lot to do with the lineup protection he had in Boston and Los Angeles and lacked in San Diego.

"I went to Boston and I came here and it's like, 'They have to come after me, look at who's behind me,'" he said. "That shifted my mentality and made me more aggressive."

Gonzalez is looking to alter his approach in 2014, and thus far he's happy with the results.

"I've done a decent job of it so far this spring," he said. "I've walked three or four times and a lot of at-bats have gone deep into counts. There have been at-bats where I got frustrated because I walk and I'll say, 'I want to hit now,' but then I'm like, 'Stay with it.'"
