Adrian Gonzalez gets day off vs. Cubs

BY foxsports • August 3, 2013

Los Angeles Dodgers first baseman Adrian Gonzalez is out of the lineup for Saturday's game against the Chicago Cubs.

Dodgers manager Don Mattingly said he had planned to rest Gonzalez on Sunday, but moved it up one day after chatting with the four-time All-Star.

''Seeing him this morning, he looked a little stiff and stuff,'' Mattingly said. ''He needed a day and I know if he'd play today he would have been fine.

''I could tell just by the way he answered that I felt he needed a day. So I figured I'd do it today.''

Gonzalez is hitting .301 and leads the Dodgers with 120 hits, 15 homers and 66 RBI.
