If you’ve been keeping up with Big Red’s progress since his Tommy John surgery last spring then you would know he’s getting close to making a full comeback hopefully by the end of the season. Today, Dodgers manager, Dave Roberts announced that Dustin May is expected to pitch three innings tomorrow in a rehab start.
May is planning to start Friday night for Triple-A Oklahoma City for their home game against Sacramento River Cats, which happens to be a Giants affiliate. The same night the LA Dodgers will host the San Francisco Giants for game two of the series.
“Dustin is a lot more physical. He’s really commanding the baseball as good as I’ve seen him.”
The Dodgers want to throw the 24-year-old into some live-action minor league games before bringing him back up to the big leagues. The ultimate goal is for the lefty to get some August/ post-season starts or back up some strong starters such as Gonsolin or Kershaw.
Last weekend, May was seen facing live batters in two innings where he collected 3 strikeouts and allowed 0 hits, 0 runs, and 0 walks.
D-May has really dedicated himself to the 14-month process and taken it day by day in hopes of returning back to the mound in that Dodgers uniform by the end of the season. When he does get to plug back into this starting rotation, it will be a huge boost.
