Gonzalez is out of the lineup Wednesday against Arizona.

Manager Don Mattingly is opting to use a mostly right-handed lineup Wednesday against Robbie Ray and the Diamondbacks, which leaves Gonzalez out of the mix. Instead, Scott Van Slyke will take over at first base for Gonzalez. Still, Gonzalez is listed as available on the lineup card should he be called upon to pinch hit during Wednesday's contest.

Gonzalez went 3-for-5 with a double and an RBI in Sunday's win over the Marlins.

With Sunday's two-bagger, Gonzalez tied Anthony Rizzo for the NL lead in doubles with 23. The 33-year-old's power contributions may capture most of the headlines, but his 30:48 BB:K ratio might be his most impressive stat. It has led to a .375 on-base percentage, his highest mark since 2011.

Gonzalez was the late-inning hero Sunday for the Dodgers, as he tied the game with an RBI double in the eighth inning and plated the game-winning run on a two-run single in the 12th.

The 2-for-5 day raised the 31-year-old's batting average to .313 and he drove in multiple runs for the first time in 11 games, bringing his season total to 43. Gonzalez has been a top source of counting stats this season and should continue as such with the Dodgers' lineup getting healthy around him.

Gonzalez was ejected from Friday's game against the Padres after the top half of the seventh inning for arguing balls and strikes.

Gonzalez took umbrage with one of the strike calls during his at-bat with the home-plate umpire Doug Eddings, and was later tossed after grounding into an inning-ending double play. Alberto Callaspo entered the game in the bottom half of the seventh to replace Gonzalez, while Justin Turner moved over from third base to cover first. Gonzalez will finish the night 1-for-4 with an RBI.

Gonzalez went 4-for-4 with two doubles and a run scored Monday in Colorado.

He'd quietly faded in the second half of May, having gone just 10-for-48 (.208) with one homer in his final 14 games of the month. Indeed, after starting the season with five homers in the first three games, Adrian has hit just five in the 46 games since. Nonetheless, he'll probably hit another power surge, and you can count on him to be quite helpful in batting average and counting stats in the middle of the Dodgers lineup.

Gonzalez went 1-for-3 with a home run, two RBI and two runs scored in Tuesday's victory over the Braves.

Gonzalez snapped a 17-game homerless streak, collecting just his second long ball in the month of May. His batting average has dropped nearly 40 points since the end of April, but the left-handed slugger still owns a solid 1.058 OPS on the year.

Gonzalez went 2-for-5 with an RBI in Monday's 6-3 win over the Braves.

Until gathering a seventh-inning RBI groundout, Gonzalez hadn't plated a run in his last eight games. His power production has largely dried up since an eight-homer April, but Gonzalez has been able to maintain usefulness by batting .296 while getting on base at a .407 clip this month.

Gonzalez is out of the lineup Saturday against the Rockies.

Gonzalez has scorched the ball over the first month and a half this season, accumulating a .367/.434/.711 batting line with nine home runs and 32 RBI over 34 games. He'll receive a day off Saturday, however, with Justin Turner starting at first and batting cleanup for the Dodgers.
