Dodgers News: Dave Roberts Misspoke in Latest Dustin May Injury Update

There is an update on Dustin May’s Status Here

Dave Roberts has been doing a decent amount of misspeaking this season. A few weeks back, when Max Muncy got hurt, Roberts said that his slugger suffered a Grade 2 hamstring strain. If that was the case, he would’ve been out over a month.

Instead, Muncy clarified that he had suffered a much more minor issue, and Roberts apologize for the mistake.

This week, another incorrect injury take has come from Roberts.

On Wednesday, Roberts said that RHP Dustin May — who’s currently rehabbing his flexor pronatar strain — started playing catch for the first time after his PRP injection. However, on Thursday, Roberts clarified that he misspoke. He said May had not started playing catch, and is still rehabbing his injury six weeks after the injection.

This is tough news for the Dodgers, as it sounded like May was finally making some progress in his recovery. The hope was that six weeks after the PRP injection, May would be able to get back to throwing. Ideally, that starts in the next week or so, but if not, May will be behind the hopeful schedule the Dodgers had laid out.

With Julio Urias’ return, the Dodgers rotation is getting a little boost (although he struggled mightily in his return). However, May was one of the team’s better pitchers before going down with the injury, so they’ll have to hope that he starts recovering soon to make an impact at some point in the second half of the year.

  1. As respected and as much self confidence as the Dodgers pitching coaches have, the Dodgers seem to have more injuries than they should. Is there a problem?

  2. The Dodgers player’s injuries always seem to end up being worse than first reported.
    Deliberately? That’s not honest!
    Wrong initial diagnosis? Incompetent medical staff.
    Roberts not given the correct info? Further proves he is just a puppet for the front office. Always has a surprised or perplexed look on his face.

  3. I believe that in the long Dustin May may be better cutout for high leverage, part time starters-long relief role. His style of pitching puts a lot of strain on his shoulder. Short stints in critical relief situations as well as true long relief stints is a role the Dodgers currently have no one to fill. That would give May the chance to pitch more often but for shorter amounts of time and use his velocity and pitch repertoire to better advantage, He waa doing well returned and we all had high hopes for him. But after a couple of major injuries, its like waiting for that rubber band in his arm to give out again and as a MLB organization you can’t plan for that and win world series’ which should always be the goal. Otherwise, why are we playing?
