Dodgers News: Adrian Gonzalez, Rob Segedin Each Collect Hits In First Rehab Assignments With Oklahoma City
Jake Roth-USA TODAY Sports

As expected, Los Angeles Dodgers first baseman Adrian Gonzalez began a rehab assignment with Triple-A Oklahoma City this week as he works to return from bulging discs in his back. Gonzalez was joined Thursday night by Rob Segedin, who also began a rehab assignment.

Gonzalez started at first base and batted third, played five innings and went 1-for-3 with a single in his first at-bat of the game. Gonzalez struck out in the top of the sixth and was removed at the start of the bottom half of the inning.

Dodgers manager Dave Roberts hasn’t stated what the length of Gonzalez’s rehab assignment will be, though did say the veteran first baseman will conclude it with High-A Rancho Cucamonga.

Gonzalez was recently transferred to the 60-day disabled list and isn’t eligible to be activated until Saturday, Aug. 12.

Segedin went 1-for-4, also with a single, and played seven innings in left field. It was his first game action since undergoing surgery May 31 to remove a bone spur from his right wrist. He was projected to miss four to six weeks from the date of the operation.

Segedin was initially placed on the 10-day DL April 19 with a right big toe strain, though the injury was later classified as turf toe. Including time with the Dodgers and Oklahoma City, he’s appeared in just 12 games this season.
