Dodgers' Dustin May: Surgery completed
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

May (elbow) announced Wednesday via his personal Twitter account that he underwent Tommy John surgery in Los Angeles.

May's procedure was performed by the renowned Dr. Neal ElAttrache. The elbow surgery spells a disappointing end to what was potentially shaping up to be a breakout season for May, who posted a 2.74 ERA, 0.96 WHIP and 35 strikeouts in 23 innings through his first five starts. The 23-year-old isn't expected to be ready to pitch for the Dodgers until the summer of 2022.

Dodgers' Dustin May: Set for Tommy John surgery
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

May will undergo Tommy John surgery May 11, Juan Toribio of reports.

May felt something in his arm in his latest start Saturday against the Brewers and was forced to exit in the second inning. An MRI confirmed that surgery was needed Monday. The procedure typically takes over a year to recover from, so May probably won't pitch again at the big-league level until the second half of the 2022 season.

Dodgers' Dustin May: MRI reveals UCL damage
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

May's MRI revealed some UCL damage in his right elbow Monday, Jon Morosi of MLB Network reports.

This isn't quite confirmation that May will require Tommy John surgery, but it wouldn't be a surprise if such an announcement comes soon. The team is expected to make a decision on his future within the next 24 hours. The Dodgers will need to find a replacement for him in the rotation soon, as both David Price (hamstring) and Tony Gonsolin (shoulder) are also injured, though the team has three off days in the next two weeks, so it's not as pressing a need as it could be.

Dodgers' Dustin May: Moving to IL, MRI on tap
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

May (arm) will be placed on the injured list Sunday and undergo an MRI once the team arrives in Chicago on Monday, Bill Plunkett of The Orange County Register reports.

Manager Dave Roberts said the right-hander felt a "shooting sensation" down his arm before being removed during the second inning of Saturday's loss to the Brewers, and there appears to be potential for a serious injury. May will miss at least one start while on the injured list, but the specifics of the injury won't be known until Monday, when he actually undergoes the MRI.

Dodgers' Dustin May: Dealing with arm injury
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

May was removed from Saturday's start against the Brewers with a right arm injury, Mike DiGiovanna of the Los Angeles Times reports.

May was lifted during the second inning Saturday when he was wincing in pain after throwing a pitch, and the Dodgers have now confirmed he's dealing with an arm issue. The young right-hander's outlook remains up in the air while he continues to be evaluated, and a more specific diagnosis is expected from the team in the near future.

Dodgers' Dustin May: Exits with apparent injury
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

May left his start Saturday against the Brewers with an apparent injury, Jorge Castillo of the Los Angeles Times reports.

May winced in pain after throwing a pitch in the second inning and signaled to the dugout. He walked off the field with team trainers. The nature and severity of the injury should become clearer following further tests.

Dodgers' Dustin May: Fans 10 in no-decision
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

May allowed one earned run on two hits and one walk while striking out 10 across six innings in the loss against the Padres on Sunday. He did not factor in the decision.

May's only damage came on a solo shot by Fernando Tatis in the fourth inning. The 23-year-old had strong command Sunday, reaching double-digit strikeouts for the first time in his career. He has a 2.53 ERA and 32 strikeouts in 21.1 innings. His next scheduled start is Friday in Milwaukee.

Dodgers' Dustin May: Serves up two home runs Monday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

May (1-1) allowed four runs (three earned) on four hits and a walk while striking out eight over five innings in Monday's loss to the Mariners.

May struggled out of the gate, as he threw over 20 pitches and allowed homers in each of his first two innings, putting the Dodgers in an early 3-0 hole. He settled down for a 1-2-3 third and should've been able to say the same for the fourth, but Chris Taylor prolonged the inning by botching a groundball at second, and the runner came around to score on a subsequent RBI double down the right-field line by Taylor Trammell. May did have his offspeed pitch working, however, as all eight of his strikeouts came via the curveball. His ERA shot up to 2.93 after this outing, but he improved his K:BB to 22:4 and will look to get back into the win column against the Padres on Sunday.

Dodgers' Dustin May: Falters in fifth
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

May pitched 4.1 innings against Colorado on Wednesday, allowing two runs on seven hits and one walk while striking out six. He did not factor in the decision.

After Los Angeles staked May to an early 3-0 lead, it looked as though the right-hander was headed for his second win of the campaign. May kept Colorado off the scoreboard for four frames, but he allowed four straight batters to reach base after getting the leadoff man in the fifth. That was enough for manager Dave Roberts to pull the flamethrower, thus ending his bid for a victory. May still holds a strong 1.74 ERA and 14:3 K:BB across 10.1 innings on the campaign. He'll get his next start at Seattle on Monday.

Dodgers' Dustin May: Will start Wednesday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

May's next turn in the rotation will come Wednesday against Colorado, David Vassegh of AM 570 LA Sports reports.

May last pitched April 5, but the Dodgers chose to modify their rotation order due to having two off days in a five-day span. He'll now get the Rockies at home his next time out. The right-hander shined in his first start of the campaign, pitching six scoreless innings and striking out eight against Oakland.

Dodgers' Dustin May: Next start bumped back
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

May won't start Sunday's game against Washington, but he is expected to take his next turn in the rotation soon, Bill Plunkett of The Orange County Register reports.

Los Angeles is in the midst of a five-day stretch during which it plays only three games, and management is opting to have ace Clayton Kershaw start Sunday in order to prevent him from having to take off six days between starts. While May's spot in the rotation will consequently be skipped over, manager Dave Roberts indicated that he expects the right-hander to start again "shortly." That could mean that he'll open the team's following home series, which starts Tuesday against Colorado.

Dodgers' Dustin May: Dominant in season debut
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

May (1-0) tossed six scoreless innings in Monday's win over the Athletics. He gave up two hits and two walks while fanning eight.

May posted a quality start while cruising through six dominant frames in his first start of the season. He posted an impressive 2.57 ERA with a 1.09 WHIP across 56 innings (10 starts) during the 2020 season. The early returns suggest the 23-year-old righty may be primed to up his strikeout rate this season, thanks largely to his impressive cutter that he used to finish off batters in this excellent outing.

Dodgers' Dustin May: Cruises in spring finale
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

May hurled 5.1 innings in an exhibition contest versus the Angels on Tuesday, allowing one run on four hits and one walk while striking out four.

A day after he was named the Dodgers' fifth starter for the regular season, May made the decision look like a wise one with a solid outing that brought his spring ERA down to 2.37. The 23-year-old's first start of the campaign is slated for April 5 at Oakland.

Dodgers' Dustin May: Earns spot in starting rotation
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Manager David Roberts stated Monday night that May will serve as the fifth starter for the Dodgers to open the season, Juan Toribio of reports.

May managed to beat out David Price (illness) and Tony Gonsolin for the first starting spot after a strong showing in spring training. The right-hander posted a 2.63 ERA and 1.24 WHIP with 17 strikeouts over 13.2 innings.

Dodgers' Dustin May: Slated for three innings Monday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

May will start for the Dodgers in Monday's Cactus League contest versus Colorado and is scheduled to pitch three innings, Bill Plunkett of The Orange County Register reports.

May has pitched in only one game so far this spring, tossing two scoreless innings versus San Francisco on March. 2. The right-hander is a candidate for a spot in the Dodgers' rotation heading into the campaign, though the team's pitching depth makes it more likely that May instead begins in a bullpen role.

Dodgers' Dustin May: Throws just one inning
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

May was only asked to throw one inning as the opener in Game 7 of the NLCS against Atlanta on Sunday, allowing one run on one hit while striking out one and walking two.

May had also started Game 5 just two days prior, throwing two innings, so a similar workload seemed likely in this one. He was removed after just one rather unconvincing frame, however, as he allowed the first three runners to reach base before minimizing the damage with a double play ball. May has been a "starter" in three of his five postseason appearances this year, though he's thrown a total of 7.2 innings across all five outings. He'll presumably be used similarly during the World Series, though off days will return for that series, which could cause the Dodgers to alter their plans.

Dodgers' Dustin May: Opening Game 7
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

May will be the first pitcher on the mound for the Dodgers in Game 7 of the NLCS against Atlanta on Sunday, J.P. Hoornstra of the Los Angeles Daily News reports.

May started Game 5 on Friday, though he threw just two innings. He presumably won't be asked to handle anything close to a true starter's workload this time around, either, as the Dodgers will have all hands on deck for the elimination contest. May has allowed one earned run in 6.2 innings so far this postseason, striking out nine while walking four.

Dodgers' Dustin May: Named Game 5 starter
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

May will be the starting pitcher for Game 5 of the NLCS against the Braves on Friday, Eric Stephen of reports.

May worked 1.2 innings in relief during Game 1 on Monday, allowing no runs on a hit and a walk while fanning two. The right-hander has not pitched more than two innings in any of his three appearances this postseason, so it's unclear how much length the Dodgers will look to get out of him Friday.

Dodgers' Dustin May: Only asked to throw one frame
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

May was merely the opener for Game 3 of the NLDS against the Padres, as he was only asked to throw a single inning, striking out one and walking one while allowing no hits and no runs.

The Dodgers faked out fantasy players and seemingly the Padres as well, who started left-handed platoon bat Mitch Moreland only to pull him for Jurickson Profar after a single plate appearance. May recorded just three outs, with Adam Kolarek recording the next two before handing the ball to Julio Urias, who threw five innings. May has now thrown three scoreless innings across his two appearances this postseason. It's entirely possible he makes a proper start during the NLDS against Atlanta, though there's little reason to believe that the Dodgers will suddenly stop being creative with their pitching staff -- especially considering May now hasn't been allowed to last at least five innings in an appearance since Sept. 22.

Dodgers' Dustin May: Starting Game 3
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

May will start Game 3 of the NLDS against the Padres on Thursday, Ken Gurnick of reports.

May threw two scoreless innings of relief in Game 1 on Tuesday, so he may not be asked to pitch too deep into this one, though it's possible the Dodgers consider his 27 pitches in that game to be the equivalent of a typical side session between starts and will give him a fairly long leash. The 23-year-old righty cruised to a 2.57 ERA in 10 starts and a pair of relief appearances during the regular season, but his 4.62 FIP and 3.98 xFIP suggest he overachieved by quite a bit, as he struck out a modest 19.6 percent of opposing batters.
