Coleman has a 2.61 ERA for the month of May, bringing his ERA down to 3.10 for the season. After struggling to find his rhythm in 2016's early games by giving up four earned runs in his first five innings, Coleman gave up just three earned runs in the 15.1 innings that followed, good for a 1.76 ERA in that span. Despite his fastball being just 88.9 miles per hour, Coleman has managed to strike out batters at a rate of 9.30 K/9. As the season goes on, he'll work on walking fewer batters and bringing his BB/9 down from 3.98. If he manages to do so, his WHIP should concurrently fall from it's already low mark of 0.98.
Coleman has been activated from the bereavement list for Monday's game against Miami. He'll replace Luis Avilan in the bullpen effective immediately. Coleman has allowed four runs on four hits over five innings in five appearances out of the Dodgers' bullpen this season.
Coleman (personal) is set to rejoin the Dodgers on Monday, MLB.com's Ken Gurnick reports. Coleman missed a few days of action after being placed on the bereavement list, but should be set to provide the Dodgers with bullpen depth throughout the upcoming four-game series against the Marlins.
Coleman was placed on the bereavement list Thursday, Andy McCullough of the LA Times reports. Coleman will miss a minimum of three games, ruling him out through Saturday's contest in Colorado, at the very least. Luis Avilan was recalled from Triple-A Oklahoma City to take Coleman's spot at the back of the bullpen.
Coleman is off to a slow start with a 5.79 ERA and 1.50 WHIP in four appearances. After making the team off an impressive spring, Coleman is still far from working his way into the later innings for the Dodgers.
