"He's just the best," Holly said ... "I'm glad he's our manager."

Dodgers' Adrian Gonzalez Refused to Stay at Trump Hotel ... 'I Had My Reasons'

10/17/2016 10:14 AM PDT
Breaking News

L.A. Dodgers slugger Adrian Gonzalez says he refused to stay at a Trump hotel in Chicago during a regular season road trip ... explaining, "I had my reasons."

The Dodgers usually use the Trump International Hotel & Tower when they come to the Windy City to play the Cubs -- but back in May, A-Gon asked the team to make arrangements for him to stay somewhere else.

Gonzalez didn't get into the specifics when asked about the hotel situation -- only explaining, "I had my reasons" ... according to JP Hoornstra of the Inland Valley Daily Bulletin

Let's get serious ... it was a Donald Trump protest move ... even if he didn't say it. 

By the way, the Dodgers did NOT stay at the Trump during the first 2 games of the NLCS in Chicago this weekend ... but the team says it has nothing to do with A-Gon or politics. 

The hotel reportedly required a non-refundable deposit to hold the rooms -- and since the Dodgers didn't know if they would be making the trip until their win over the Nats on Friday, they went somewhere else instead.

She's also asking for spousal support and wants to drop "Howell" from her name ASAP. 

The couple has no kids together. 

We reached out to J.P.'s agent for comment -- so far, no word back.

No one knows Dodgers ace Clayton Kershaw better than his wife, Ellen -- who tells TMZ Sports the injured pitcher is "giving it everything he has" to get back in the rotation THIS season. 

Ellen -- along with several other Dodger wives and girlfriends -- was at the Downtown Women's Center preparing food for the homeless when we asked about her husband's back injury. 

"He's doing okay," Ellen told us ... "He's giving it everything he has to make it back this season without going through any surgery."

"It's killing him to be on the sidelines."

However, Ellen says the fact the Dodgers are doing so well right now is GREAT for Clayton's recovery. 

"It's allowing him to be patient and not rush back ... because he sees the team, they're really capable."

"We're hoping it's a speedy recovery."

Here's Yasiel Puig starting off his Memorial Day weekend at one of the most patriotic places in the country ... the Statue of Liberty ... where he ran into one of his littlest fans! 

The Cuban-born Dodgers star was heading over to Liberty Island (he's in town to play the Mets) when he saw a kid in a Puig #66 shirt and had to stop and take a picture.

Yasiel Puig Chopper Plans Grounded Dodgers Heli-Disapproved

5/4/2016 11:05 AM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

Yasiel Puig's dream of getting a helicopter to help him beat L.A. traffic isn't getting off the ground after all ... and it's all because the Dodgers didn't think it was a good idea. 

Puig's close friend and personal car customizer, Alex Vega, had previously told us Puig was dead serious about buying a chopper ... a la Kobe ... and had already drawn up plans to pimp it out.

But the Dodgers weren't as keen on the idea as Puig was ... and according to Vega, team reps strongly advised him against the purchase. 

"The Dodgers told him he couldn't have it ... It was causing so much distraction they didn't want him to get it."

We reached out to the Dodgers -- they had no comment. 

Btw, federal law prohibits Puig from flying a helicopter to Dodger Stadium anyway ... so, he'd have to land nearby and fight traffic to the park like everyone else ... which defeats the purpose. 

Cold world.
