Gonzalez went 3-for-5 with a grand slam and an additional run scored in Sunday's win over the Cardinals.

EDGE Analysis

St. Louis trotted Michael Mayers out to make his Major League debut, and Gonzalez welcomed him to the big leagues with a grand slam in his first at-bat after three men reached base to start the game. The long-ball was Gonzalez's second in as many games, bringing him to nine on the season, and his 51 RBI to this point put him on pace to rival last year's total, despite the drop in power numbers.

Gonzalez went 1-for-4 with a solo homer Saturday against the Cardinals.

EDGE Analysis

Gonzalez left the yard for the eighth time this year in the sixth inning to give the Dodgers an insurance run in a road victory. He's only homered twice since June 11, and he's slashing .280/.357/.401 on the season.

Gonzalez is out of the lineup Sunday against the Diamondbacks.

EDGE Analysis

Gonzalez will take a seat against southpaw Robbie Ray, as manager Dave Roberts will trot out a lineup almost entirely void of left-handed bats (with the exception of Corey Seager). The plattoon splits of Gonzalez aren't all that drastic, as he owns a .269 batting average against left-handers, but Roberts will elect to play matchups nonetheless. Scott Van Slyke will get the starting nod at first base in place of Gonzalez.

Gonzalez went 2-for-4 with a solo homer in Sunday's 3-1 victory over the Padres.

EDGE Analysis

The veteran first baseman wrapped up a productive series against one of his former squads by homering for the first time since June 11 against the Giants. Gonzalez's extended power drought had been somewhat of a cause for concern, but he's been clicking in virtually every other category. Following Sunday's production, he's already brought his average up 18 points in July and surpassed his June RBI total as well, while bringing up his season line to an improving .291/.370/.412 at the midway point.

Gonzalez went 2-for-4 with an RBI double and a run in Saturday's 4-3 victory over the Padres.

EDGE Analysis

The veteran first baseman answered Yangervis Solarte's two-run blast in the first with an RBI double in the second that plated Chase Utley to open the Dodgers' scoring on the day. Gonzalez has had a rather ordinary season by his standards, but his bat has definitely gathered some steam in July. He's now posted multi-hit efforts in four of the last five games, and is slashing .419/.525/.548 with four doubles and eight RBI over 31 at-bats to date this month.

Gonzalez went 3-for-3 with a walk, one RBI and two runs in Tuesday's game against the Brewers.

EDGE Analysis

The two days of rest seemed to work out for the slumping veteran. Gonzalez's average is in line with recent years, but his power numbers are way down 75 games into the season. He's slashing .272/.347/.382 through 272 at-bats -- a career-low slugging percentage.

Gonzalez is not in the lineup for Monday's game against the Pirates, according to David Vassegh of AM 570 LA reports.

EDGE Analysis

Manager Dave Roberts indicated Sunday that Gonzalez would be held out of Monday's lineup, and it turns out that will indeed be the case, as Scott Van Slyke will get the start at first base. Roberts also hinted that Gonzalez will be held out of the lineup Tuesday, so he may be limited to pinch-hit duty for the next couple days.

Manager Dave Roberts indicated Sunday that he will rest Gonzalez each of the next two days to reset mentally, Andy McCullough of the Los Angeles Times reports.

EDGE Analysis

Gonzalez has been poor at the plate recently, collecting just two hits in 18 at-bats over his last five games. The veteran first baseman will yield Sunday's start to Scott Van Slyke at first base, who could be a candidate to start there two days in a row, while Gonzalez will look to get back at it Tuesday when the Dodgers travel to Milwaukee.

Gonzalez is out of the lineup Sunday against the Pirates, J.P. Hoornstra of the Southern California News Group reports.

EDGE Analysis

Gonzalez will take a seat for the first time since June 1, giving way to Scott Van Slyke at first base. The month of June hasn't been good to the left-handed slugger, as Gonzalez is batting just .183 over 90 plate appearances, collecting a total of five extra-base hits over that span. This performance has brought his season batting average down to .263, but perhaps a day on the bench could help him right the ship.
