The irony won’t be lost on Los Angeles Dodgers fans, but Dustin May had to leave his start early on a day affectionately known as May-Day. The double-entendre is appropriate as the Dodgers try to move forward without their prized young starter.
May appeared to injure his arm on a pitch in the second inning. Immediately after a 94 mile per hour fastball, acknowledging to the dugout that something didn’t feel right. May was removed from the start, and an updated diagnosis has not yet been provided.
May is off to a great start this season. He’s struck out 32 through 21.1 innings pitched, allowing 0.94 walks and hits per inning pitched and six earned runs in his first four starts. His 13.5 strikeouts per inning pitched leads the Dodgers.
LA’s pitchers have been among the best in the MLB this season. They’ve given up the fourth-fewest earned runs, have the second-best walks and hits per inning pitched, and have the third-most strikeouts. Expect Dave Roberts to provide an update on their rotation plans once the Dodgers have an update on the status of May’s injury.
The Dodgers conclude their three-game series against the Milwaukee Brewers tomorrow. A line has not yet been hung as we await confirmation of the starting pitchers. Stay tuned to FanDuel Sportsbook for a line on the game.
