Dustin May News
Los Angeles Dodgers starting pitcher Dustin May (elbow) has suffered UCL damage and will undergo Tommy John surgery, according to Juan Toribio of MLB.com. May exited his start on Saturday in pain after throwing a pitch in the second inning, and was placed on the injured list on Sunday. Tests have shown that May damaged his UCL, and the decision was made for May to undergo reconstructive surgery on May 11. Toribio reports that Dr. Neal ElAttrache will be performing the procedure. The Dodgers have not yet formalized who will replace May in the rotation, as May will finish the season 1-1 with a 2.74 ERA and 37.6 percent strikeout rate in 23 innings of work. David Price and Tony Gonsolin are possible replacements for May in the Dodgers rotation once they come off the injured list.
Los Angeles Dodgers starting pitcher Dustin May (arm) will be placed on the injured list on Sunday, according to Bill Plunkett of the Orange County Register. May was removed from the game after he was seen grimacing following a pitch in the second inning. Plunkett reports that May described a "shooting sensation" in his arm when he threw the pitch. Manager Dave Roberts said that May will be placed on the injured list on Sunday, and he will undergo an MRI on Monday when the team heads to Chicago.
Los Angeles Dodgers starting pitcher Dustin May exited Saturday's matchup against Milwaukee in the second inning with an unknown injury. The 23-year-old was observed in obvious pain and signaled to the dugout after tossing a 94 mph fastball. This isn't good news as the team is dealing with several injuries to the pitching staff already. Since winning the fifth spot in the rotation, the righty has played well, sporting a respectable 2.74 ERA to go along with one win and one loss across five games this season.
Los Angeles Dodgers right-hander Dustin May has posted really strong ratios in his 90 innings with the Dodgers, which include a 2.98 ERA and a 1.09 WHIP. He is one of the hardest throwers in the game, consistently reaching triple digits with his sinker although he's not the strikeout machine you might be expecting. He rounds out his arsenal with a cutter and a curveball, but he is mainly a sinker-baller, throwing the pitch 51% of the time in 2020. This explains the low strikeout rate (career 20.8%), as the sinker is the most contact-prone pitch in the game. Since he has had so much success doing what he does best, he is unlikely to change anything, which will likely lead to more uninspiring strikeout rates. You should be willing to deal with the low strikeouts as long as he maintains strong ratios, which seems like a great bet given how awesome his sinker is. May will never be an SP1 in fantasy, but he is a really great bet to help your pitching staff and he comes pretty cheap as fantasy managers tune their preferences to sexier strikeout totals. With that said, he could end up in a hybrid starter/reliever role if he's outperformed for a standard starter's gig by the likes of Julio Urias and/or Tony Gonsolin.
