Dodger fans remember May 1st, 2021 because it was the day the Dodgers lost their hotshot Dustin May. After throwing a pitch that missed outside, May winced and held out his arm in pain, and baseball fans who have seen that before knew immediately.
It ended May’s season as he underwent Tommy John surgery. His return date is unknown but speculated to be some time into the middle of the 2022 season. Today, May posted some encouraging news!

Great news for May, and for Dodger fans. May isn’t skipping any time rehabbing. This video already shows him throwing, albeit softly. The rehab for Tommy John surgery is slow and requires a lot of patience from the player themselves, and the team who anxiously awaits May’s return.
May’s Body of Work
In May’s short career, he had posted 111 K’s in a total of 113 innings. May was one of the top pitching prospects in baseball, and over the past two seasons (including the COVID shortened season) had been developing his game. May’s stuff may be some of the best we have ever seen. That is not hyperbole. His sinker has frequently been clocked at over 100 MPH with more run than most sinkers 10 miles an hour slower. May was on a steady rise to being one of the top arms in the national league. May and the Dodgers look forward to his return and look forward to the continuing of his career.
