Default Andrew Toles on the Dodgers

This guy is as good as Sterling Marte and probably better. Amazing the depth the Dodgers have.

Is it just me that feels this guy would be a top 20 NL only drafted player. All he does is hit and play good defense and he barely sees the field..

84 plate appearances is not enough to start comparing guys to established major league stars. Let's see how he does during the grind of a full season. The history of baseball is riddled with guys who looked lights out with their first cup of coffee only to be out of the game 3 years later. (and the reverse, Trout wasn't exactly dynamite during his first MLB exposure)

He's had a hot start tho, no argument with that!

it's cool to be excited about young players (hell that's half the fun of being a fan!) But, I prefer to see a guy get 1000 PA's or so before being confident on what his true talent level is gonna be.

if they let him play that would be a start. take a look who they are starting tonight 9/13/15 (edited the next day to add- they ended up scoring ZERO runs) the Seg Man and E. Hernandez. Toles also hit a clutch homer in the 9th not that long ago.

First, it's Starling Marte.

Second, I'm going to withhold my excitement until the guy has a little more playing time under his belt. Much too soon to declare he could be a top 20 pick in an NL only league. Lots of good players who have proven themselves that I would take before him.

Marte i liked a ton in 2015 and he did become a top 20 pick in NL only this year...

in NL only leagues. Marte is a huge pickup..noone would say 'only marte' in an NL only fantasy standard league...even next year hes at least a top 30 player for drafts

i not saying we are talking about a hall of famer....but Marte is a top 20 NL player and i just see Toles heading that way if he gets a chance to play

I not saying i would draft Toles next year top 20, i just saying after next year, Toles will be a top 20 NL player assuming he sees the field.

Toles is having a good season but he has a history of personal problems and lengthy suspensions going all the way back to college. I'm assuming that's why the Dodgers are being so touch and go with him. They already have one Puig.
