When you have nine players on the disabled list as the Dodgers do, including starters Hanley Ramirez and Mark Ellis, caution tends to rule the day. Not walking-on-egg-shells caution, but more watching-where-you-place-every-step caution. Gonzalez has a strained neck, and has since running into an umpire chasing a foul ball on May 1. He did not start the next three games, though he did pinch hit. He came back Monday against Arizona, but left Wednesday's game before the fifth inning after aggravating the injury.

We just want to hold Alex back, get him 100% over the next day or two and ease him back in. There's plenty of time."
