Gonzalez is out of the lineup Thursday against the Padres.

EDGE Analysis

Gonzalez was dealing with a sinus infection earlier in the week but there has been nothing yet to suggest his absence Thursday is related. Manager Dave Roberts is sitting most of his lefty batters against Christian Friedrich, with Joc Pederson being the lone exception.

Gonzalez was replaced by Rob Segedin at first base in the fifth inning of Wednesday's game against Padres, Ken Gurnick of MLB.com reports.

EDGE Analysis

It could be just a case of giving the veteran some rest with the Dodgers locked into the playoffs, but no specific reason for his departure has surfaced to this point. Los Angeles finishes off their series against the Padres on Thursday, so it will be interesting to see if he rejoins the lineup.

Gonzalez had a day to remember on Monday, going 3-for-6 with three home runs and eight RBI.

EDGE Analysis

Gonzalez has been truly unstoppable at the plate this month, hitting safely in 15 straight to bring his average for August up to .378. He's also clubbed six home runs and knocked in 19 already this month. It's been a down year for the first baseman in the power department, even with his huge August. After hitting 28 home runs with 90 RBI a season ago, Gonzalez is at just 15 homers and 70 RBI thus far this season.

Gonzalez had a big day at the plate Wednesday, hitting a pair of home runs, one a two-run and another a three-run shot for five RBI total.

EDGE Analysis

Gonzalez's five RBI give him 62 on the year, and the blasts bring his home run total to 12. Gonzalez is hitting .298 in his age-34 season, batting in the heart of a hot Dodgers lineup that has been top-five in OPS in each of July and August. He should get ample opportunities to grow that RBI total moving forward, hitting behind Corey Seager, Justin Turner, and Josh Reddick.

Gonzalez went 2-for-4 with a pair of doubles and two runs scored Tuesday against the Phillies.

EDGE Analysis

Gonzalez has been on fire, picking up 10 hits in the last four games. Just two of the previous eight went for extra bases, so it's nice to see that the veteran first baseman still has some pop in his bat. His career-low .129 isolated power suggests Gonzalez's power stroke is on a massive downswing despite this outing, even though he still knows how to find holes in the defense.

Gonzalez went 2-for-4 with a run and an RBI in Monday's 9-4 win over the Phillies.

EDGE Analysis

That's eight hits in the last three games for the red-hot first baseman. Gonzalez has only driven in a modest three runs out of the clean-up spot during this impressive stretch, but has crossed the plate five times himself. The veteran is still batting a mystifyingly low .264 at Dodger Stadium despite the recent success, but has made up for that disappointing mark with a .322 average on the road.
