This is a sad and somewhat disturbing story: the Miami Herald reports that Dodgers outfielder Andrew Toles was arrested for trespassing after being found sleeping behind a building at Key West International Airport.
Per the police report, Toles was asked to simply leave the area without being arrested, would not do so, and was subsequently arrested. All he had with him was a black bag and his address on the police report was listed as “the streets of Key West, Florida.”
Toles, 28, who was spectacular for the Dodgers in the 2016 postseason, has not appeared in a big league game since late in the 2018 season. We last heard news of him when he was placed on the restricted list in May of 2019 for undisclosed personal reasons.
Here’s hoping that he gets whatever help he needs after what has no doubt been a tough couple of years for him.
A doubleheader between the St. Louis Cardinals and Detroit Tigers this week is being postponed to allow more time for additional COVID-19 testing.
MLB opted to postpone Thursday’s doubleheader to continue additional testing while players and staff are quarantined before the team returns to play. More details about the Cardinals’ resumption of play will be announced later this week.
The Cardinals had a series against Pittsburgh set to start on Monday postponed after a weekend series against the Cubs was scrapped due to three positive coronavirus tests.
St. Louis had two more players and a staff member test positive for the virus on Friday and have had eight positive players overall, including star catcher Yadier Molina.
There have now been 29 games postponed by Major League Baseball because of coronavirus concerns. The Cardinals have not played since July 30 and have had 15 games scrapped.
Miami and Philadelphia each had seven games postponed earlier and have returned to the field since the disruptions.
