The Dodgers placed Andrew Toles on the restricted list this afternoon.
The Dodgers placed Andrew Toles on the restricted list. He hasn't reported to camp because of a personal matter. The move clears a spot on the 40-man roster.

This move comes after Toles had been absent from Spring Training dealing with a personal matter that has been undisclosed. However, it comes as no surprise as the Dodgers can use every free 40-man roster spot they can get with the amount of talent they have in Spring this season.
Toles has been a key contributor and a bit of a fan favorite over the past couple seasons en route to a .286/.333/.459 slash line in 86 career games. He most recently came back last September as a roster expansion move after tearing his ACL in 2017.
In his best season in Los Angeles, he posted a 131 wRC+ across a 48-game stretch.
As Dodger fans, we know the immense upside Toles possesses and most of us are eager to see what he could do in a full, healthy season.
We wish Tolesy the best and hope he returns to the club sooner rather than later.
