The Dodgers could be very close to getting a huge arm back in the mix. Dustin May went down last year and needed Tommy John surgery on his throwing arm. That put them in a position where they would eventually need to acquire Max Scherzer, especially after Trevor Bauer was placed on administrative leave.
But D-May has been making his rehab starts at Triple-A, and he might need just 1 more. This week. Dave Roberts said that May would go again with Triple-A before they could reassess where he is at. That could potentially mean the Dodgers get him back in less than 2 full weeks.
He went 3 innings on Thursday night and did not allow a run to come across. May punched out 6 batters and his fastball/sinker touched triple-digits as well. The Dodgers could absolutely use him in a long-relief role or as a short-term starter when he returns to action.
