The Los Angeles Dodgers will be without one of their outfielders as the first full-team workouts go down this week.

Ken Gurnick reported that Andrew Toles will not be with the team as spring training opens due to a personal matter. His return is not known at the time. Manager Dave Roberts added that he was surprised but that Toles has full support from the team.

The 26-year-old was set to compete for a spot in the outfielder; however, it was already a tough task with the team having a glut of outfielders. Toles played in just 17 games in the big leagues last season, slashing .233/.281/.300 with a pair of doubles. He was the team’s starting left fielder in 2017 before tearing his ACL on a play at Dodger Stadium.

With no details on the situation, it would be unfair to speculate. We wish Andrew Toles the best and hope he returns soon.
