Dodgers’ Andrew Toles jailed in Florida charged with transfer

KEY WEST, Fla. – Los Angeles Dodgers outfielder Andrew Toles was in jail earlier this week, accused of trespassing.

Toles, 28, was detained this week at the Key West, Florida airport by an aide to the Monroe County Sheriff.

The Miami Herald reported that Toles was found sleeping behind a Federal Express building at the airport and refused to move.

Jail records show Toles appeared to be homeless when he was arrested Monday for the misdemeanor. His bond was set at $ 500 and Saturday’s records showed Toles is no longer a current inmate at the Monroe County Jail. It is scheduled for charge reading on Thursday.

“We cannot comment,” team spokesman Joe Jareck said Saturday.

Toles never reported to spring training in 2019 due to a personal matter. She did not play that year.

Toles rose from the lower to the major categories in just a few months and became a postseason star for the Dodgers in 2016.

He was the starting left fielder in the second half of 2016 and early 2017. In May of that year, he tore a knee ligament and spent most of 2018 at Triple-A Oklahoma City.

Toles had struggled with anxiety even before the Dodgers signed him to a minor league contract. He was the Tampa Bay Rays minor league player of the year in 2013, but he was released in 2015. He was working the morning shift in the frozen food section of a grocery store before the Dodgers recruited him.
