      Dodgers' Dustin May: Rotation spot opens up

      Dustin May has a clearer path to a rotation spot this year after David Price announced on his personal Twitter page Saturday that he will sit out the season.May already had a decent shot to make a fair amount of starts this season, as he lined up as the team's sixth starter in a year in which teams are likely going to be forced to get creative. He now looks like one of the team's top five options, as he's fully recovered from a side injury that would have forced him to miss the start of the year had play not been paused back in March. The 22-year-old struck out a modest 22.7 percent of opposing batters in his 34.2-inning debut last year, but a 3.5 percent walk rate helped him to a 3.63 ERA and a 2.90 FIP.

      Dodgers' Dustin May: May open season in rotation

      Dustin May could begin the 2020 campaign as a starter for the Los Angeles Dodgers if the abbreviated season necessitates a deeper starting rotation, Pedro Moura of The Athletic reports.Though there are no firm details about how a potential 2020 season might play out, the possibility of expanded rosters and more frequent games -- including doubleheaders -- remains viable. Per Moura, the Dodgers have discussed using "as many as eight starting pitchers" to account for such a scenario. That would likely allow May to claim a spot in the big-league rotation as he was preparing to stretch out as a starter in the minor leagues before spring training was suspended. The 22-year-old fared well as a starter last season, posting a 2.82 ERA and 17:3 K:BB over 22.1 innings.

      Dodgers' Dustin May: Fully healed from side injury

      Dustin May reported that he has completely recovered from a side injury that sidelined him this spring in an interview with John Hartung of SportsNet LA."Right now I'm ready to go. No issues. I'm completely healed," May indicated in Tuesday's interview. He also stated that he is throwing "as much as possible" and "right on cue" with the pitching schedules of other Los Angeles Dodgers starters. May will likely open the season at Triple-A in order to stretch out as a starter, but it wouldn't be a surprise to see him make an impact with the big-league club at some point during the campaign.

      Dodgers' Dustin May: Resumes throwing

      Dustin May (side) played catch Thursday, Bill Plunkett of The Orange County Register reports.This is an encouraging sign for May, who was shut down near the end of February after showing little improvement in his recovery from a side issue. That said, the right-hander hasn't thrown from a mound since the first day of spring camp and will remain without a recovery timeline until he does so.

      Dodgers' Dustin May: Still not throwing

      Dustin May is still dealing with a sore side muscle and hasn't thrown off a mound since the first day of camp, Ken Gurnick of MLB.com reports.May hasn't been completely unable to throw, as he's played catch. However, he's clearly behind where he'd like to be at this point in camp. He didn't feel good after playing long toss out to 120 feet Wednesday and has been temporarily shut down, Bill Plunkett of The Orange County Register reports. He was already considered likely to open the year in the minors due to the Los Angeles Dodgers' incredible rotation depth, so the fact that he's been delayed in his spring buildup may slam the door shut on his chance of making the Opening Day roster. Still, provided the issue doesn't develop into something worse than originally feared, May should be in the majors at some point during the season and make a fair number of starts.

      Dodgers' Dustin May: Likely to begin season in minors

      Dustin May (side) is being viewed as a starter, but he is likely to open the campaign in the minor leagues, Ken Gurnick of MLB.com reports.The news comes on the same day manager Dave Roberts indicated that southpaw Julio Urias has all but locked up a spot in the starting rotation, per David Vassegh of AM 570 LA Sports. That leaves one slot in the starting rotation up for grabs with a mix of veterans -- including Alex Wood and Jimmy Nelson -- competing with May and fellow prospect Tony Gonsolin. While May is unlikely to begin the season in the majors, there is a good chance he will be summoned to the big club at some point during the campaign.

      Dodgers' Dustin May: Resumes playing catch

      Dustin May (side) was scheduled to play catch during Thursday's workout, Alanna Rizzo of Spectrum SportsNet LA reports.May won't be in the clear until he's able to complete a bullpen session without any discomfort to his right side, but his ability to work out in any capacity Thursday is a sign his injury isn't particularly serious. The right-hander remains in the mix to claim a spot in the Los Angeles Dodgers' Opening Day rotation.
