The Dodgers’ support of Andrew Toles sounds like it is going to continue. The former outfielder was placed on the restricted list back in March of 2019 after having to step away from the team. There was no news on the matters until the Summer of last year.
That is when news surfaced that Toles has been arrested on a trespassing charge in Florida. Officers found him sleeping behind an airport and he was charged with a misdemeanor. That was only the beginning of the story for the former Dodgers’ star.
We later learned through his family that Toles had suffered through a number of mental health issues. That led to him leaving the Dodgers and losing contact with his family for an extended period of time.
The latest update from the court was that the charges against Toles were being dropped. He was seeking treatment for his mental health and the case was dismissed. Today, we learned through ESPN that the Dodgers were renewing his contract.
The move could be read in a few different ways since Toles had to come off of the restricted list this week. According to MLB guidelines, players can only remain on the list for a period of 2 years. But the Dodgers and their front office have said that they want to help in any way that they can, and this provides Toles with access to medical services.
