Dodgers’ Dustin May Making Major Progress in Throwing Program

To this point in the 2024 season, Dodgers pitcher Dustin May has been kept largely out of sight — and out of mind — during his rehab from elbow surgery. This week offered an exception.

With the Los Angeles Dodgers visiting Chase Field in Phoenix to play the Arizona Diamondbacks, May was able to connect with his teammates while taking a break from his throwing schedule at Camelback Ranch.

Tuesday, manager Dave Roberts told reporters that May is a week to 10 days away from throwing off a mound — a major milestone in his throwing program.

Apparently May is already throwing from a full windup on flat ground, as detailed in these photos from Camelback Ranch, which Arizona-based photographer Jerry Espinoza shared Tuesday on Twitter/X:

May’s 2023 season was cut short due to flexor tendon repair and a Tommy John revision in July. The typical timetable to return from a pitcher’s first Tommy John surgery is 12 to 18 months, so the Dodgers would be fortunate to get him back on a major league mound this year.

Injuries have limited May to 46 games and 34 starts over parts of five major league seasons, all with the Dodgers. In that time, he’s recorded a 12-9 record, 3.10 ERA, 174 strikeouts, 138 ERA+, and a 1.04 WHIP in only 191.1 innings.

For now, May is a little less out of mind now that the calendar has flipped from April.
