The Dodgers placed Andrew Toles on the restricted list this afternoon.

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.

  1. Absolutely agree hopefully Toles can get his issues addressed which is the priority. But if he can get back to the game of baseball he is a very talented young man with incredible potential…

  2. I went through a lot of these issues when I was younger, luckily life gave me a second chance, albeit later in life, but I took the bull by the horns when I got free from my demons and never looked back…it takes what it takes, good luck A.T. I’m rooting for you

  3. Whatever he is dealing with it must be pretty serious for him not to have re-surfaced by now. That’s too bad………he seemed like a nice guy.

  4. I hope Toles returns to the Dodgers in the future I really think he has potential also he made me laugh going to miss him he just needs time. Take care Tollie and good luck.
