A winding baseball journey will come full circle today, as the Dodgers will give Andrew Toles his first taste of the major leagues.
According to multiple sources, the 24-year-old outfielder will be recalled from Triple-A Oklahoma City prior to tonight’s game against the San Diego Padres. Toles began the season at Single-A Rancho Cucamonga, was promoted to Double-A Tulsa in May, and played another eight games at Triple-A Oklahoma City prior to his promotion. Toles’ combined slash line across the three levels: .330/.375/.507, with 23 stolen bases in 32 attempts.
Update (4:00 p.m.): Toles was selected to the 40-man roster and is starting in center field and batting eighth tonight. Carlos Frias was optioned to Triple-A Oklahoma City and Triple-A infielder Cole Figueroa was designated for assignment.
