Gonzalez is out of the lineup Wednesday against the Giants, Alex Pavlovic of CSN Bay Area reports.

Gonzalez is 1-for-12 in his last three games and just 4-for-35 lifetime against Wednesday's starter Madison Bumgarner, so it seems like a good time to get him a breather. Justin Turner will man first base in Gonzalez's absence while Yasiel Puig moves down to the three-hole in the batting order.

Gonzalez went 0-for-5 in Sunday's win over the Rockies on Sunday. He made the third out thrice among his five outs, the Orange County Register reports.

Despite the hitless day, Gonzalez's start to the season has been astounding, hitting .469/.527/.939 so far. He's been the leader of a rebuilt Dodgers offense that leads the NL in runs scored.

Gonzalez went 4-for-4 with three home runs and 4 RBI in Wednesday's win over San Diego.

Gonzalez is batting .205 with a pair of home runs this spring, but he's healthy and ready to go after leading the majors in RBI last year with 116.

What Gonzalez does or does not do this spring matters little. He will anchor the middle of the Dodgers' lineup again in 2015.

Gonzalez went 1-for-3 with a run, a home run, and two RBI against the Diamondbacks on Saturday.

Gonzalez is as consistent as they come. Having hit his 20th homer and driven in his 94th run of the season, Gonzalez is now six RBI away from his seventh 20-homer, 100-RBI season in the majors. The 32-year-old first baseman is closing in on yet another productive season.

Gonzalez (back) is in the lineup for Friday's game against the Padres.

Gonzalez sat out the Dodgers' last game Wednesday with a sore back, but he will return to action following a team off day. As he has done regularly of late, Gonzalez will man first base and bat third Friday night.

Gonzalez is out of the lineup Wednesday with a stiff back, the Los Angeles Times' Dylan Hernandez reports.

He dealt with a stiff back earlier in the week, and while he may indeed be still slightly bothered by it, he's also been terrible against lefties this season (.185/.246/.266), so it was convenient to have him sit against southpaw Wade Miley. He will have an extra day to rest up as the Dodgers have an off day Thursday.

Gonzalez is out of the lineup Wednesday against the Diamondbacks.

This isn't a big surprise with lefty Wade Miley on the hill, as Gonzalez is slashing just .185/.246/.266 against southpaws this season. Add in the fact that Scott Van Slyke has destroyed Miley this season, and it's a very well justified day off for Gonzalez.
