May threw three innings Sunday and should be stretched to five frames by the start of the regular season, Ken Gurnick of MLB.com reports.

May is among three candidates for the fifth-starter spot that became available when David Price opted out of the campaign. It is difficult to ascertain whether May or Ross Stripling is the frontrunner for the role, with both men having a strong case to join the rotation. In 14 games (including four starts) with the Dodgers last season, May posted a 3.63 ERA, 1.10 WHIP and 32:5 K:BB over 34.2 innings.
