For the second consecutive game, Luis Gonzalez wasn't in the Dodgers' lineup on Monday.
Watching the game from the dugout has becoming increasingly common for Gonzalez, as Andre Ethier and Matt Kemp are receiving a greater share of the playing time in the corner outfield positions.
The 39-year-old Gonzalez hasn't started in five of the Dodgers' last eight games, but he isn't becoming accustomed to sitting. And he has no intention of doing so, meaning his time with the Dodgers could be up when his contract expires at the end of the season.
Asked whether he saw himself coming back to play under similar circumstances, Gonzalez replied, "No, no, not here. . . . Anything can happen in the last month, but they've got a good nucleus of young kids here and that's their future. I don't know where I'll end up next year. I'll go with an open mind into the off-season and see what happens."
