Former Dodgers outfielder Andrew Toles last played a baseball game in 2018. The promising outfielder has struggled with mental health problems, and has been on the restricted list since the spring of 2019.
While there’s no expectation from the team that Toles will ever play baseball again, that hasn’t stopped them from continuing to tender him contracts to allow him to have health insurance and obtain mental health care through the club. This story doesn’t get talked about nearly enough, but fortunately, Craig Calcaterra brought some light to it in his newsletter on Wednesday:
What the Dodgers are doing with Toles is truly incredible. There’s nothing forcing them to do the right thing here, but they know that some things are bigger than baseball.
While there hasn’t been much public knowledge about Toles’ situation, he’s clearly had some severe struggled with mental health issues. So it’s very nice to know that he’s under the care and watchful eyes of the Dodgers organization, who are assisting him in getting the support and help he needs.
We wish the best to Toles as he continues to work through his struggles, and we applaud the Dodgers organization for lending a huge helping hand.
