SCOTTSDALE, Ariz. --Los Angeles Dodgersmanager Dave Roberts told reporters Friday that right-hander Tony Gonsolin won't be ready for opening day because of a sprained ankle.

The 28-year-old had his best season in 2022, earning his first All-Star and finishing with a 16-1 record and 2.14 ERA in 130 innings while giving up just 79 hits.

The Dodgers have several options to fill Gonsolin's spot. The most likely candidates are Ryan Pepiot, Michael Grove and Andre Jackson.
