Andrew Toles suffers a torn ACL-Dr. Morse

Andrew Toles

The speedy outfielder that I personally thought had a chance to make a run for NL ROY sustained a season-ending torn ACL in his right knee. This is a brutal blow to the Dodgers, and his 2017 season. Expect Toles to be put on the DL and he will likely undergo surgery in the next week or two (once the inflammation goes down). It is not yet know who will perform the reconstruction, but his rehabilitation is expected to take about 9 to 11 months.

The 24-year-old was just starting to heat up; he was hitting .271 with 5 HRs, 15 RBIs and 17 runs. Unfortunately you can count out Toles for the rest of the 2017 season. Hopefully he should be back stronger than ever to start the 2018 season. Feel free to drop him in redraft leagues, in deep keeper league you have to decide if he’s worth one of your DL slots, I personally think he is.

The Dodgers are now in a bind, as they have to depend on bench bats Scott Van Slyke and Chase Utley until AGonz is back (which would likely shift Bellinger back to the outfield). I would not be surprised if the Dodgers made a run at an available outfielder, like Ryan Braun or maybe someone not quite as costly.
