Gonzalez going Loney on us

The last time a starting LAD first baseman went the month of April without a home run was James Loney in 2009.  It has only been done four times in LAD History. I used 80 PA as the criteria. At least Loney was hitting, Adrian is not even doing that.

Rk            Player       Split Year PA HR RBI  OPS
2    Adrian Gonzalez April/March 2017 83  0   9 .661
8        James Loney April/March 2009 97  0  16 .810
33      Steve Garvey April/March 1982 92  0  11 .560
37      Steve Garvey April/March 1976 87  0   7 .659

Were you surprised to see Steve Garvey on this list? I sure was.
