Dodgers' Dustin May: Expects to stretch to five innings
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

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

Dodgers' Dustin May: Rotation spot opens up
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

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
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

May could begin the 2020 campaign as a starter for the 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
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

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 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: Nearing full health
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

President of baseball operations Andrew Friedman said May (side) is essentially recovered from his injury, Ken Gurnick of reports.

May was bothered by a sore side muscle for most of spring training, though the issue isn't expected to limit the young righty when play ultimately resumes. He appeared in 14 games during his rookie season with the Dodgers in 2019, posting a 3.63 ERA, 1.10 WHIP and 32:5 K:BB across 34.2 innings.

Dodgers' Dustin May: Resumes throwing
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

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: Yet to resume throwing
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

May (side) still isn't throwing and has no set return date, Jake Rill of reports.

May participated in a long-toss session last week but didn't feel great and was subsequently shut down. Manager Dave Roberts indicated that there has been "a little bit of improvement" in May's recovery but did not indicate when he'll resume throwing. The right-hander has not thrown from a mound since the first day of spring camp.

Dodgers' Dustin May: Still not throwing
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

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 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 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
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

May (side) is being viewed as a starter, but he is likely to open the campaign in the minor leagues, Ken Gurnick of 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: Could throw bullpen Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

May (side) could throw a bullpen session Sunday, Ken Gurnick of reports.

May has been dealing with side tightness since early in spring training, but he recently began throwing and could throw a bullpen Sunday. The Dodgers reportedly view May as a starter heading into 2020, and he could still be in the mix for a spot in the Opening Day rotation.

Dodgers' Dustin May: Resumes playing catch
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

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 Dodgers' Opening Day rotation.

Dodgers' Dustin May: Days away from return
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

May (side) is improving but won't return to the mound for multiple days, Ken Gurnick of reports.

May is dealing with side tightness, though the issue has been deemed mild. The 22-year-old is expected to compete for a spot in the starting rotation, but he has plenty of competition and could begin the season in the bullpen or in the minors. Given the Dodgers' predilection to dig into their depth and manage starting-pitcher innings, May is likely to receive some starts during the regular season while avoiding a full workload.

Dodgers' Dustin May: Experiences side tightness
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

May experienced mild side tightness after reporting to spring training, Ken Gurnick of reports.

The fact it's classified as mild tightness is good news, but it's still somewhat concerning to see the 22-year-old managing an injury at the start of camp. May mostly worked out of the bullpen in his first taste of the majors in 2018, but he'll be in the running for an Opening Day rotation spot in spring training, assuming the side tightness doesn't have a lingering impact.

Dodgers' Dustin May: Entering camp as starter
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

May will enter spring training as a starter, Ken Gurnick of reports.

The 22-year-old has been a starter throughout his minor-league career, though he was used out of the bullpen in 10 of his 14 appearances in his debut season. He'll have a shot to win an Opening Day rotation spot this year after posting a 3.63 ERA and a 1.10 WHIP in 34.2 innings as a rookie, but given the Dodgers' tendency to avoid overworking their young arms, there's no guarantee he'll stay there all year.

Dodgers' Dustin May: Makes NLDS roster
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

May is on the roster for the National League Division Series against the Nationals.

The 22-year-old will be available in the bullpen for the NLDS over Tony Gonsolin, who was left off the roster. May owns a 2.61 ERA with a 15:1 K:BB over nine appearances in September.

Dodgers' Dustin May: Posts another shutout inning
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

May (2-3) pitched a scoreless fourth inning and struck out one batter while picking up the win in the Dodgers' 9-0 win over the Giants on Sunday.

May stepped up big during the last week of the season as he pitched four scoreless innings and striking out six batters during the process. The 22-year-old had to prove to Manager Dave Roberts that he deserved to be included on the team's postseason roster and that exactly what he went out and did. May is young at just 22 years old but has a very strong arm and is riding a bunch of momentum heading into the playoffs after throwing 10 scoreless innings to close out the season. It's unclear how Dave Roberts plans to use May out of the bullpen but the right-hander surely has earned himself a spot as the Dodgers prepare for yet another World Series run.

Dodgers' Dustin May: Auditioning for postseason role
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

May will make two or three appearances during the Dodgers' final road trip as the team determines whether or not to include him on the postseason roster, Bill Plunkett of The Orange County Register reports.

May did not pitch in Tuesday's contest against the Padres but figures to get into at least two of the Dodgers' final five games of the regular season. The 22-year-old's ability to soak up multiple innings makes him an intriguing option for the team's postseason roster, though he has posted a 6.75 ERA and 1.50 WHIP over 9.1 innings as a reliever this season. However, nearly all of that damage came in his first two outings out of the bullpen; over his last five appearances, May has pitched seven scoreless innings while giving up five hits and one walk and striking out nine batters.

Dodgers' Dustin May: Returns with clean inning
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

May (head) tossed a perfect sixth inning in Saturday's 1-0 loss to the Giants.

It was May's first appearance since getting hit with a line drive last Sunday, and he kept it clean in a close ballgame. The 22-year-old now has a 4.91 ERA and 1.25 WHIP in 25.2 innings over seven appearances (four starts) this year. It's expected May will work out of the bullpen going forward with Rich Hill (forearm) set to return to the rotation Thursday. May might find work behind an opener or in longer relief assignments given his background as a starter.

Dodgers' Dustin May: No decision made on return
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

May (head) threw a sim inning Wednesday and will be re-evaluated before the Dodgers' upcoming series, Bill Plunkett of The Orange County Register reports.

May reported feeling "all good" after throwing to hitters Wednesday afternoon and has already passed multiple concussion tests after being hit in the head by a line drive Sunday. Although a return to the mound appears imminent, the Dodgers have already named starters for their next series. Therefore, May is likely to continue pitching out of the bullpen when he is cleared to play.

Dodgers' Dustin May: Facing hitters Wednesday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

May (head) will face hitters on the field prior to Wednesday's game against the Rockies, Jorge Castillo of the Los Angeles Times reports.

May was hit in the head by a line drive Sunday but was cleared of a concussion. He'll still do some throwing before returning to game action. Manager Dave Roberts said the team would decide on the 21-year-old's upcoming role following the throwing session.
