  • Dodgers' Dustin May: Activated for NLDS

    The Dodgers activated May (back) from the 15-day injured list and added him to their roster Tuesday ahead of Game 1 of their National League Division Series matchup with the Padres.

    May didn't appear in the Dodgers' 5-3 win in Game 1, but he's likely to be available out of the bullpen for the rest of the series. Julio Urias started Game 1 and Clayton Kershaw will take the hill for Game 2, while Tyler Anderson is expected to get the ball for Game 3. The Dodgers haven't tipped their hand regarding who might draw the starting nod for Game 4, but Tony Gonsolin and Andrew Heaney both look to be likelier options for the assignment than May.

  • Dodgers' Dustin May: Likely to make NLDS roster

    Dodgers manager Dave Roberts expects May (back) to be on the NLDS roster, though it's not yet determined what the right-hander's role and availability will be, Mike DiGiovanna of the Los Angeles Times reports.

    May was placed on the 15-day injured list due to lower-back tightness Sept. 24, but he was able to toss two simulated innings Wednesday and will throw another sim game Sunday, per Assuming he doesn't suffer any setbacks, May is expected to be on the NLDS roster, though he's not expected to work as a starter. The right-hander logged only 30 innings this season after undergoing Tommy John surgery in May 2021.

  • Dodgers' Dustin May: Throwing to hitters

    Manager Dave Roberts said May (back) is scheduled to throw against hitters Wednesday, Fabian Ardaya of The Athletic reports.

    The right-hander was only briefly shut down from throwing after he landed on the injured list with lower-back tightness Sept. 24, and his return to facing hitters should be one of the final steps in his rehab program. However, Roberts said May isn't guaranteed a spot on the Dodgers' roster for the NLDS, even if he's healthy for the start of the series next week.

  • Dodgers' Dustin May: Could return in NLDS

    May (back) threw 15 pitches in a bullpen session Friday, Jack Harris of the Los Angeles Times reports.

    This was his first bullpen session since going on the injured list. May will throw another session Sunday and could face hitters during sim games before the NLDS. Manager Dave Roberts said he is growing confident that May will return during the division series.

  • Dodgers' Dustin May: Plays catch Tuesday

    May (back) felt good while playing catch Tuesday and is "completely confident" he'll be available for the NLDS, Jack Harris of the Los Angeles Times reports.

    The right-hander has been on the shelf for less than a week with tightness in his lower back, so it's an encouraging sign he's back to throwing with no issues. May should continue ramping up his throwing program in the coming days as he attempts to get cleared in time for the postseason. Chances are, May will be limited to relief duty, at least for the NLDS.

  • Dodgers' Dustin May: Not throwing

    Manager Dave Roberts said Sunday that May (back) won't be playing catch for at least "a few days," Jack Harris of the Los Angeles Times reports.

    The 25-year-old landed on the shelf with lower-back tightness on Saturday, and it's not much of a surprise he'll take a break from throwing. May won't be eligible to return from the injured list until the NLDS, though it remains to be seen if he'll be healthy by that point. According to Juan Toribio of, Roberts also said the right-hander could pitch out of the bullpen once cleared to return.

  • Dodgers' Dustin May: Out with back tightness

    May was placed on the 15-day injured list with lower-back tightness Saturday, Fabian Ardaya of The Athletic reports.

    The timing of the injury means that May's 2022 regular season is officially over. He returned from Tommy John surgery in late August to make six starts, recording a mediocre 4.50 ERA. It's not yet clear if the injury is expected to carry over into the postseason, though it's worth noting that the Dodgers can afford to exercise an abundance of caution given that they've nearly locked up home-field advantage throughout the playoffs. Andre Jackson was recalled to take May's place on the roster.

  • Dodgers' Dustin May: Completes four innings in defeat

    May (2-3) took the loss against Arizona on Wednesday, allowing five runs on seven hits and two walks while striking out four batters over four innings.

    May looked brilliant in pitching five hitless innings his last time out, but the momentum didn't carry over to Wednesday. The right-hander fell behind in the first frame and let the game get away from him when he gave up three runs in the fourth. It was the second time in his six outings this season that May has given up five or more runs, though he's also allowed one or zero runs three times in that span. All told, he's posted a 4.50 ERA, 1.17 WHP and 29:14 K:BB over 30 innings. May may need to show more consistency in his final few outings to earn a spot in the Dodgers' playoff rotation.

  • Dodgers' Dustin May: Throws five no-hit innings

    May (2-2) earned the win Friday, allowing just one walk across five no-hit, shutout innings versus the Giants. He struck out four.

    May hadn't won a start since his season debut Aug. 20. He turned things around in a big way Friday, though the Dodgers exercised caution by pulling him after 69 pitches (40 strikes). Bill Plunkett of The Orange County Register reported May was dealing with some arm soreness after his previous start Sept. 10, which may explain manager Dave Roberts' approach Friday. May now has a 3.46 ERA, 1.00 WHIP and 25:12 K:BB through 26 innings across five starts since returning from Tommy John surgery. He's tentatively projected for a home start versus the Diamondbacks next week.

  • Dodgers' Dustin May: One big hiccup in no-decision

    May registered a no-decision during Friday's 5-4 loss to San Diego, allowing four runs (three earned) on five hits and three walks with three strikeouts in five innings.

    The bulk of the damage against May came on a Trent Grisham three-run home run in the second inning, though he also surrendered multiple baserunners in the third and fifth. The 25-year-old struggled with his control for a second-straight start, issuing three walks while tossing only 47 of 82 pitches for strikes. After two excellent starts against Miami coming off the IL, May has struggled against San Diego in his two most recent turns and sports a 4.29 ERA and 1.19 WHIP with 21 strikeouts across 21 innings. He's slated to toe the rubber again midweek in Arizona.

  • Dodgers' Dustin May: Coughs up six runs in loss

    May (1-2) took the loss Friday, allowing six runs on four hits and five walks over five innings against the Padres. He struck out five.

    After a couple of gems to start his season following his return from Tommy John surgery, May took a step backward Friday, with a pair of two-run homers allowed putting the Dodgers in an early hole. May, who turns 25 in a few days, now has a 4.50 ERA this season and a 3.12 ERA for his career at the major-league level. With his impressive fastball velocity and high-spin breaking ball, May has serious strikeout upside whenever he takes the mound for Los Angeles, though it's clear his command isn't all the way back.

  • Dodgers' Dustin May: Takes tough loss Saturday

    May (1-1) took the loss against Miami on Saturday, pitching six innings and allowing two runs on five hits and one walk while striking out four batters.

    May wasn't as dominant as in his season debut one week ago, when he struck out nine batters over five scoreless, one-hit innings. Nonetheless, he looked good again Saturday, throwing 56 of 86 pitches for strikes and holding the Marlins without an extra-base hit. Two of the five base knocks against him were infield singles in the sixth inning, which proved to be the decisive frame. May has made two starts since returning from Tommy John surgery, and he's allowed just two runs over 11 innings while posting a 13:3 K:BB.

  • Dodgers' Dustin May: Dominant in season debut

    May (1-0) earned the win over Miami on Saturday, allowing one hit and walking two batters while notching nine strikeouts over five scoreless innings.

    The Dodgers couldn't have asked for much more from May in his first big-league outing since undergoing Tommy John surgery last May. The right-hander was a bit shaky in the first inning, allowing a leadoff single and a pair of walks. However, he struck out the other three batters he faced in the frame and went on to retire all 12 hitters who stepped up to the plate against him during the remainder of his outing. May neared triple-digits on his four-seamer, per Sarah Wexler of, and induced 13 swinging strikes among his 71 pitches. With Walker Buehler (elbow) out for the season and Clayton Kershaw (back) on the 15-day IL, May's return and ability to ramp up over the remainder of the regular season could be critical in the Dodgers' quest to return to the World Series.

    May (elbow) was activated ahead of his start Saturday against the Marlins.

    The runway is clear for May to be in the Dodgers' rotation for the rest of the regular season. He logged a 1.71 ERA, 0.95 WHIP and 36:6 K:BB in 21 innings across six rehab outings.
