Dodgers' Andrew Toles: Has contract renewed
The Dodgers recently renewed Toles' contract for the 2022 season, Michael J. Duarte of NBC LA reports.
Toles hasn't played baseball since 2018 and remains on the Dodgers' restricted list as he continues to manage mental health issues, so there's very little chance that he'll return to the team this season. However, the organization has opted to continue renewing his contract so that Toles is able to receive MLB health insurance as he tries to rebuild his life. His personal well-being vastly outweighs any discussion of his abilities on the field.... See More ... See Less
Dodgers' Andrew Toles: Contract renewed
Toles' contract was renewed by the Dodgers on Thursday, the Associated Press reports.
Toles has been on the restricted list since March 2019 and hasn't worked out with the Dodgers since leaving extended spring training in May of the same year. He was arrested in Florida last June on a misdemeanor trespassing charge and is reportedly getting help for the mental health issues that led to the arrest. There's little chance that Toles will play at all in 2021, and his overall baseball future is unquestionably murky, so the Dodgers' decision to renew his contract is likely a move to support the outfielder and ensure that he continues to receive health insurance to cover the help he needs....

Dodgers' Andrew Toles: Personal struggles mount
Toles was arrested in Florida on Monday on a misdemeanor trespassing charge after he was found sleeping behind Key West International Airport and refused to leave, Gwen Filosa of the Miami Herald reports.
In terms of baseball news, this incident furthers the belief that Toles is unlikely to return to the sport during the 2020 season. However, Toles' need for help clearly extends beyond baseball, and any hope of seeing him in a Dodgers uniform again should be superseded by the hope that he simply gets well. The 28-year-old has a documented history of dealing with anxiety and depression, and he essentially disappeared from baseball after leaving spring training last May to deal with a personal matter....

Dodgers' Andrew Toles: Not expected to return in 2020
Toles (personal) is unlikely to be part of the Dodgers' 2020 plans, Ken Gurnick of MLB.com reports.
The Toles saga continues. Once a key postseason contributor for Los Angeles -- he hit .364 and scored six runs for the team in the 2016 playoffs -- Toles missed most of 2017 due to an ACL tear and played in only 17 major-league contests in 2018. Though apparently fully healthy last season, Toles did not play a single game at any level after leaving the Dodgers' spring training facility in late May to attend to a personal matter. At this point, it's anyone's guess when -- or if -- Toles will resume his baseball career.... See More ... See Less

Dodgers' Andrew Toles: No timeline to join team
Manager Dave Roberts admitted Wednesday that he's unsure when Toles (personal) will be ready to rejoin the Dodgers, Jorge Castillo of the Los Angeles Times reports.
Toles has yet to report to camp while tending to an undisclosed personal matter. Each additional day Toles remains away with the team, his chances of breaking camp with the Dodgers will continue to diminish. The 26-year-old is one of several players vying for one or two reserve spots in a deep Dodgers outfield.... See More ... See Less

Toles has not reported to spring training due to a personal matter, Pedro Moura of The Athletic reports.

Dodgers' Andrew Toles: Returns to big club
The Dodgers called up Toles from Triple-A Oklahoma City on Saturday, Fabian Ardaya of The Athletic Los Angeles reports.
Despite the promotion on the Sept. 1 roster expansion date, the outfielder will find it difficult to break into the lineup out of the gate, Eric Stephen of TrueBlueLA.com reports, which limits the 26-year-old's fantasy potential. Toles performed well at Triple-A Oklahoma City, though, with a .306/.345/.461 line, seven homers and three stolen bases across 275 plate appearances.... See More ... See Less
Dodgers' Andrew Toles: Sent back to Triple-A

Dodgers' Andrew Toles: Sits again Wednesday
Toles is not in the lineup Wednesday against the Padres.
Toles is expected to get into the lineup fairly often following his 2018 debut Monday, but that will likely come in a platoon role -- he's sat against the last two lefties the Dodgers have faced. Cody Bellinger will again man center field, with Max Muncy playing first base.... See More ... See Less
Dodgers' Andrew Toles: Out of Tuesday's lineup
Toles is out of Tuesday's lineup against the Padres, Ken Gurnick of MLB.com reports.
This is in line with the expectation when Toles was promoted to the big leagues on Monday, as he started in that game against a righty but will sit in this one against lefty Eric Lauer. Cody Bellinger is starting in center field, hitting sixth.... See More ... See Less
Dodgers' Andrew Toles: Performs well in 2018 debut
Toles -- who was called up prior to Monday's contest -- started in center field and went 2-for-3 with a double, a walk, two RBI and a pair of runs scored in an 8-2 win over San Diego.
Toles made his first start in the majors since tearing his ACL back in May of 2017. The 26-year-old slashed .326/.363/.500 over 34 games with Triple-A Oklahoma City, and Yasiel Puig's placement on the DL with an oblique injury opened up a spot in the Dodgers' outfield. Matt Kemp has taken over in right field, and a combination of Toles, Joc Pederson and Enrique Hernandez will occupy the remaining two outfield spots until Puig returns in three-to-four weeks. Monday's lineup configuration suggests that the two left-handed bats, Toles (center field) and Pederson (left field), will receive the majority of starts against right-handed starters....

Dodgers' Andrew Toles: Starting in center Monday
Toles was selected from Triple-A Oklahoma City, and he'll start in center field against the Padres on Monday, Pedro Moura of The Athletic Los Angeles reports.
Toles recently returned from the disabled list after missing time with a hamstring issue. He'll be inserted into the series opener after Yasiel Puig (oblique) left Sunday's tilt due to injury. Toles has put together a .326/.363/.500 slash line with four homers and 22 RBI over 34 games this season, and he could see substantial playing time in the short term if Puig lands on the DL....
