They are dropping like flies at Dodger Stadium! The latest Dodgers player to fall is Adrian Gonzalez, who was scratched from Saturday night's lineup with a small skin infection in his right leg. Gonzalez is currently at the hospital but is expected back later Saturday and will be available to play later in the game against the Brewers.

Jerry Hairston will now play first base, and bat sixth for the Dodgers.

Gonzalez is off to a scalding start for the Dodgers, hitting .363/.436/.525, including two run-scoring doubles in Friday night's win over the Brewers. He leads the team in hits (29), doubles (seven), home runs (two), RBI (17), batting average, on-base percentage, slugging percentage, and OPS.

Prior to Saturday, Gonzalez was the only Dodger to start every game this season.

Here are the revised lineups, which also include Brewers shortstop Jean Segura getting scratched with a split nail on his right index finger.
