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 SBNation.com 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 MLB.com 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.

Dodgers' Dustin May: Works four innings in win
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

May (3-1) pitched four scoreless innings, allowing two hits and two walks while striking out five to earn the win Sunday over the Angels.

May followed opener Victor Gonzalez in the regular-season finale. May threw 34-of-55 pitches for strikes and effectively quieted the Angels' bats. The 23-year-old May pitched to a 2.57 ERA, 1.09 WHIP and 44:16 K:BB across 56 innings in 12 appearances (10 starts) this season. It's not clear if the right-hander will work as a starter or a reliever in the postseason.

Dodgers' Dustin May: Slated for brief appearance
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Dodgers manager Dave Roberts said he expects May to pitch around 2-to-3 innings out of the bullpen in Sunday's game against the Angels, Ken Gurnick of MLB.com reports.

May is still viewed as the Dodgers' primary pitcher behind opener Victor Gonzalez, but expect Roberts to treat the regular-season finale as a bullpen game, which will hurt May's chances of factoring into the decision. Roberts hasn't decided on May's role heading into the postseason, as the 23-year-old could serve as the third or fourth man in the rotation or work as a multi-inning option out of the bullpen.

Dodgers' Dustin May: Will pitch in bulk relief Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

May won't start Sunday's regular-season finale but will pitch multiple innings in a bulk-relief role, Alanna Rizzo of Spectrum SportsNet LA reports.

May was originally scheduled to face the Angels in a starting capacity Sunday, but the Dodgers have instead elected to bring him into the game as a bulk reliever, perhaps in preparation for a similar role in the playoffs. The rookie is nonetheless expected to go multiple innings in the season finale. The team has yet to name an opener for the contest.

Dodgers' Dustin May: Earns second win
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

May (2-1) notched the win against Oakland on Tuesday, pitching five innings and allowing two runs on three hits and three walks while striking out five.

May gave up single runs in the first and third innings but was mostly effective in his first start since Sept. 10. The right-hander did throw 5.1 innings in relief his last time out, so he should be stretched out heading into the postseason. It remains to be seen, however, how the Dodgers will deploy him in the playoffs; as it stands, manager Dave Roberts has tabbed May to start in the Dodgers' final game of the regular season against the Angels while Julio Urias could be headed to the bullpen for the postseason, per Ken Gurnick of MLB.com.

Dodgers' Dustin May: Logs 5.1 innings in relief
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

May worked 5.1 innings in relief during Wednesday's 7-5 win over the Padres, allowing three runs (one earned) on three hits and a walk. He fanned six.

May had previously been slated to start the tilt, but he was scratched early Wednesday. The move appeared to signal that the right-hander wasn't able to go because of the foot injury he suffered Sept. 10. That turned out to not be the case, as the 23-year-old entered the game in the third inning and worked into eighth. The Friars tagged him with three runs on two homers, but Gavin Lux's fielding error made it so just one of the runs was earned. May will carry a 2.68 ERA into his next outing, which is scheduled to come Tuesday against the Athletics.

Dodgers' Dustin May: Available out of bullpen
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

May (foot) will be available out of the bullpen Wednesday against the Dodgers and is expected to throw a few innings, Bill Plunkett of The Orange County Register reports.

Initial reports indicated that May had been scratched, presumably due to the foot injury that forced him to exit his previous start early. He's seemingly not still injured, as he's been cleared to pitch in some capacity. This could just be a case of the Dodgers testing out different arrangements for the playoffs. Brusdar Graterol will be the team's first pitcher Wednesday, though he's yet to record more than five outs in a game this season, so this will likely be a bullpen game.

Dodgers' Dustin May: Scratched from start
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

May was scratched from his scheduled start Wednesday against the Padres for undisclosed reasons, Ken Gurnick of MLB.com reports.

While the Dodgers didn't initially provide a reason for the move, it's quite likely related to the comebacker that struck him on the foot in his previous outing, forcing him to exit after just one inning. Tests revealed no fracture, and he was previously listed as the expected starting following a successful bullpen session, but the Dodgers have evidently changed plans. Brusdar Graterol will start in his place in what will likely be a bullpen game.

Dodgers' Dustin May: Expected to start Wednesday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

May (foot) is expected to start Wednesday against the Padres, Alanna Rizzo of Spectrum SportsNet LA reports.

May left his previous start after getting struck in the foot by a comebacker, but he avoided serious injury. He threw a bullpen session Sunday, which evidently went well. The 23-year-old owns a 2.81 ERA in nine starts this season, though it's taken a .250 BABIP and an 88.4 percent strand rate to get him there, and he's struck out just 16.6 percent of opposing batters.

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

May (foot) will throw a bullpen session Sunday and could start Wednesday against the Padres, David Vassegh of AM 570 LA Sports reports.

The right-hander will also participate in fielding drills, and it appears he won't end up missing a turn through the rotation. May exited his start last Thursday after being hit by a comebacker on the left foot, but he was diagnosed with a bruise after a CT scan showed no fracture.

Dodgers' Dustin May: CT scan reveals no fracture
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

May (foot) underwent a CT scan that revealed a contusion, Bill Plunkett of The Orange County Register reports.

May's X-ray on Thursday was inconclusive, but he got encouraging results from his CT scan. According to Plunkett, the 23-year-old threw off flat ground Saturday, but Dodgers haven't made a decision as to whether he'll require a trip to the injured list.

Dodgers' Dustin May: X-rays on foot inconclusive
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Manager Dave Roberts said that X-rays on May's foot came back "inconclusive" and that May will have to undergo further testing Friday, Bill Plunkett of The Orange County Register reports.

May has already been diagnosed with a foot contusion, according to Ken Gurnick of MLB.com, but it sounds like there's a chance the injury is worse. The right-hander will be evaluated again Friday, at which point the club should have a better understanding of the extent of the injury.

Dodgers' Dustin May: Exits after comebacker hits foot
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

May exited Thursday's game prior to the second inning after being hit on the foot by a comebacker in the first, Ken Gurnick of MLB.com reports.

Josh Rojas lined an infield single off May's foot in the first inning, but the right-hander was able to convince Dave Roberts and the medical staff to allow him to stay in the game. The right-hander went out to warm up prior to the second, but was replaced by Victor Gonzalez after appearing to not be moving well. The extent of the injury is not yet known.

September 5, 2020 01:56 AM
Dodgers' Dustin May: Solid in no-decision
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

May did not factor into the decision during Friday's win over the Rockies, allowing two runs on three hits and a walk while striking out five across 5.2 innings.

May gave up a solo home run to Raimel Tapia in the first inning, then another solo blast to Sam Hilliard in the fifth. Otherwise, the right-hander looked sharp, going toe-to-toe with his opponent, Antonio Senzatela. Unfortunately he fell just one out short from recording a quality start this time around. The 22-year-old will bring a sturdy 2.88 ERA and 1.11 WHIP in his next start Thursday at Arizona.

Dodgers' Dustin May: Delivers another quality start
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

May didn't factor into the decision in Friday's 6-2 loss to the Rangers, allowing two runs on five hits and two walks over six innings. He struck out three.

Despite turning in his third quality start of the season, the right-hander was on the hook for his second loss until the Dodgers got their only offense of the night in the top of the seventh inning. May continues to have trouble putting away hitters, posting a 23:9 K:BB through 35 innings, and as a result his 2.83 ERA could be due for some regression towards his 4.18 FIP. The 22-year-old is next scheduled to take the mound Thursday, at home against the Diamondbacks.

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

May gave up a run on two hits and two walks with one strikeout in five innings in a no-decision Saturday versus the Rockies.

The only damage on May's line was a solo shot by Sam Hilliard. The 22-year-old May has yet to allow more than two runs in an appearance this season. He has a 2.79 ERA, 1.17 WHIP and 20 strikeouts in 29 innings, but he's just 1-1 since he doesn't tend to pitch deep into games. May lines up to face the Rangers on Friday in his next start.
