Dustin May has been placed on the injured list due to lower back tightness.
May's return from Tommy John surgery excited many fantasy managers, but his 30 MLB innings have been sub-par. In May's most recent outing, he allowed five earned runs in four innings against the Diamondbacks. It is possible that May's back could have been an issue in recent starts.
Dustin May pitched four innings on Wednesday, striking out four, walking two, and giving up seven hits for five earned runs as he took the loss in the Dodgers' 6-1 game against the Diamondbacks.
May took his third loss of the season on Wednesday night, as he saw his record worsen to 2-3 on the year. The Dodgers pitcher has been really up and down since his return from injury, as he has pitched to the tune of an 4.50 ERA with a WHIP of 1.17. The 25-year-old will likely be out of the starting rotation come playoffs, but for now while he is in the lineup he can be streamed with caution, including for his next start against the Padres on September 27th.
Dustin May pitched five innings on Friday night, striking out four, walking one, and giving up zero hits as he left the game clean en rout to picking up the win for the Dodgers in their 5-0 game against the Giants.
With the win Friday night May saw his record improve to 2-2 on the season as he has started five games after starting the season off with an injury. The Dodgers' pitcher has pitched to the tune of an 3.46 ERA to go along with a WHIP of 1.00. The 25-year-old can be rostered for every start he makes, which includes for his next start against the Diamondbacks on September 21st.
Dustin May did not factor into the decision after allowing four runs (three earned) on five hits and three walks while striking out three in five innings of Friday's 5-4 loss to the Padres.
Since turning in two impressive starts against the Marlins in his return from Tommy John surgery, May has struggled in back-to-back outings against San Diego. In his last two starts, thee righthander has allowed nine earned runs in 10 innings and has struck out just eight batters compared to his eight walks. This K:BB ratio is a bit concerning, as the flamethrower's fantasy upside is dependent on his strikeout stuff. He will look to turn things back around against the Diamondbacks on Wednesday.
Dustin May pitched five innings on Friday night, striking out five, walking five, and giving up four hits for six earned runs as he took the loss for the Dodgers in a 7-1 game against the Padres.
May has played in just three games this season since returning from injury, and his his starts have ranged from a brilliant five inning and nine strikeout performance to two games with a combined eight runs allowed. The Dodgers' pitcher now sits with an ERA of 4.50 and a WHIP of 1.13, both numbers which are partially inflated due to the small sample size. Despite the rough outing Friday the 24-year-old should still be rostered and started in all league types, which includes his next start which comes against the Giants on September 7th.
