LOS ANGELES — Dodgers outfielder Andrew Toles left Friday night’s game with Triple-A Oklahoma City with a hamstring injury, and on Saturday was placed on the seven-day minor league disabled list.
Toles homered and singled twice in Oklahoma City’s win over New Orleans on Friday, but left in the fifth inning. Jacob Unruh at The Oklahoman has more:
The 25-year-old slugger felt something grab while running from second to third trying to beat what became a force out on a short fly ball to center field. He was 3 for 3 at the time with a home run, but he did not return.
“It’s going to be a couple days, four or five days or something,” Toles said. “It’s a long season. It’s part of it. I’ve got to hydrate.”
OKC manager Bill Haselman classified the injury as possible cramps, but said he would know more Saturday.
Toles is off to a great start in Triple-A, 12-for-26 (.462) with four doubles and a home run in six games, and has nine hits in his last 12 at-bats. The Dodgers major league outfield collectively is hitting .235/.287/.359 through 12 games this season.
Dave Roberts was made aware of Toles’ injury during Friday’s Dodgers game against Arizona. On Saturday he gave an update to Toles’ status.
