SP,RP - LAD - IL60
Dodgers RHP Dustin May is scheduled to undergo Tommy John surgery, which will sideline him for the remainder of 2021.
A recent MRI revealed the injury, which was suffered during Saturday's start against the Brewers. May will now be sidelined well into the 2022 campaign, which is a killer for fantasy managers in dynasty leagues. The young right-hander was finally on the verge of breaking out, displaying the strikeout upside the fantasy community had been longing for. Of course, he can now be dropped in redraft leagues.
Dustin May has "some UCL damage in his right elbow," according to an initial examination.
The Dodgers will reportedly make a decision on how to proceed with May within the next 24 hours, but this is pretty obviously devastating news for May's 2021 fantasy value. Even if he avoids Tommy John surgery, a course of rehab, which fantasy managers know from experience is rife with potentials for setbacks, is likely to keep May out multiple weeks, if not months. Fantasy managers should brace themselves for difficult news and begin to make other plans if they were rostering May.
The Dodgers placed RHP Dustin May on the 10-day IL with a "right arm injury."
May felt a "shooting sensation" in his pitching arm during Saturday's start, which is what led to the IL move. He's scheduled to undergo an MRI on Monday. We'll know more about his timeline to return once the results are released.
