MLB: Dodgers renew contract of player who has not played since 2019 due to mental problems

Los Angeles Dodgers in recent years they have behaved how perhaps the “model organization” of all MLB by not only being an example of great management from the offices, always seeking to have the best team of all and with a view to being World Series champions every year. However, something that says a lot about ethics and humanity of the team is his treatment of Andrew Toles and how they continue to support him.

According to information from George Blum of The Associated Press, the Los Angeles Dodgers have renewed the contract of the aforementioned Andrew Toles for the MLB minimum salary, who has not played in the Major Leagues for three years due to battling mental health problems. and even, he was found in a state of destitution in 2020 after disappearing without a trace for several months.

After learning of his precarious state of health that year, the Dodgers renewed his contract for the 2021 campaign so that the former player could continue to enjoy medical insurance to treat his illnesses and have a stable income that helps him cope with life, with his father Alvin Toles taking over the one-time great Dodgers prospect, who is diagnosed with bipolar disorder and schizophrenia.

Toles is best remembered for his great performance in the 2016 National League Championship Series against the Chicago Cubs, where although the Dodgers lost on that occasion, Toles averaged .462 with a 1.082 OPS.

I started as a rookie at Al Bat in early 2018 and am in my third season covering Major League Baseball as a web reporter. I’m a fan of the San Francisco Giants, number one defender of Barry Bonds, and hater of the Los Angeles Dodgers. Fernando Tatis Jr., Juan Soto and Ronald Acuña are the future of baseball, Mike Trout is overrated, and the Astros deserved to have the World Series taken from them for their cheating. Besides baseball, I also enjoy football, flag football, basketball, and just about any other game that involves a ball or ball. I’m also an amateur musician, a penniless gamer and very nerdy. Graduated in journalism from the University of Guadalajara, I graduated in 2017. Born in the world capital of shrimp, Escuinapa, Sinaloa.
