  • Dodgers' Dustin May: Progressing in recovery

    May (elbow) has completed eight bullpen sessions of 25-30 pitches each in April, and he could begin throwing live batting practice in about a month, Bill Plunkett of The Orange County Register reports.

    May remains months away from a return, but he appears to be doing well in his rehab from Tommy John surgery. The right-hander will take another big step in his recovery by incorporating curveballs in his next bullpen session, per Plunkett, and he could throw to live hitters for the first time since the surgery by the end of next month. May figures to be a late-season boost to an already effective Dodgers pitching staff as long as he continues to progress without setbacks.

  • Dodgers' Dustin May: Throws first bullpen

    May (elbow) threw his first bullpen session Saturday since undergoing Tommy John surgery last May.

    May continues to make steady progress in his recovery and seems to have avoided setbacks thus far. A typical return timeline won't have him back in the big leagues until the middle of the second half this year, however. Whether he'll be a starter or reliever down the stretch once he's ready to go remains to be seen.

  • Dodgers' Dustin May: Throws off slope of mound

    May (elbow) began throwing off the slope of a mound Tuesday and is expected to throw his first post-Tommy John surgery bullpen session April 1, Bill Plunkett of The Orange County Register reports.

    Considering May underwent the elbow procedure May 12 of last year, his recovery program is expected to extend deep into the 2022 campaign. The Dodgers already possessed ample rotation depth before May suffered the UCL tear last year, and the offseason pickups of Andrew Heaney and Tyler Anderson plus the potential return of Trevor Bauer from administrative leave lessens the need for Los Angeles to rush the 24-year-old back to action. If May makes enough progress to eventually rejoin the Dodgers in 2022, he may have to settle for a bullpen role.

  • Dodgers' Dustin May: Shifts to 60-day IL

    May (elbow) was placed on the 60-day injured list Thursday, Fabian Ardaya of The Athletic reports.

    May underwent Tommy John surgery last May and is hoping to pitch for the Dodgers during the final third of 2022, so it's not a surprise he's starting the campaign on the 60-day IL. The 24-year-old began playing catch in early November and gradually increased his throwing distance over the winter.

  • Dodgers' Dustin May: Sights set on late-season return

    May (elbow) said Monday that he hopes to resume throwing bullpen sessions next month before potentially making a return to the Dodgers' active roster at some point over the final third of the season, Fabian Ardaya of The Athletic reports.

    May was cleared to play catch shortly after the Dodgers were eliminated from the postseason last fall, and he's since been gradually expanding his throwing distance and the intensity of his workouts over the winter. Once he's cleared for mound work, he'll likely need to complete several bullpen sessions, and then several live batting practice sessions and simulated games before he's sent out on a minor-league rehab assignment, which would mark the final phase of his recovery from the Tommy John surgery he underwent last May. If May is able to start his rehab assignment at some point around the All-Star break, he would theoretically have time to ramp up for starting duty, though it's unclear if the Dodgers would be interested in bringing him back in that capacity down the stretch. A multi-inning relief role may be the preferred way for the Dodgers to manage his workload coming off surgery, as well as extracting better results from him.

  • Dodgers' Dustin May: Cleared to throw

    May (elbow) played catch for the first time Monday since undergoing Tommy John surgery, per his personal Twitter account.

    May went under the knife in May after suffering a UCL injury, and he's since been cleared to resume throwing. It typically takes at least one year to fully recover from this procedure, so the flamethrower is in store for a lengthy rehab stint.
