Unfortunately for both Toles and the Dodgers, the left fielder tore his ACL in the month of May. What makes this injury worse is how hot Toles started the month. He was hitting .360 in May before tearing his ACL.
The starting center fielder ran into Yasiel Puig and the outfield wall, so essentially he ran into two walls which caused his concussion. Joc was struggling at the plate, hitting just .182 in May, but as always he was playing a great center field.
This brief stint on the DL might be a blessing in disguise as it gives Joc some rest and has displayed the versatility of other players. This versatility may help lift some of the weight off of Joc’s shoulders against left-handed pitching and ultimately be good for him.
