Dodgers News: Dustin May Removed From Wednesday’s Start Against Twins After 1 Inning

Dodgers RHP Dustin May has been removed from Wednesday’s start against the Minnesota Twins after just one inning.

His velocity was down in the first inning, but we have no idea if there was an injury or what was going on.

All we know is he finished the first inning and went back down to the clubhouse.

RHP Dylan Covey, who was added to the active roster just before the game, has come in to pitch the second inning, and hopefully a lot more.

The Dodgers bullpen has been greatly taxed over the last few days, so they really need Covey to have a long outing.

In 32 innings at Triple-A this season, Covey has a 4.22 ERA. He’s made six starts, so this will be another start-like outing for him.

The Dodgers bullpen has thrown 13 innings over the last two days, and now will need to get at least another eight on Wednesday assuming it doesn’t go to extra innings.

But, for now, the biggest concern is May, and hoping he’s okay.


The Dodgers announced that Dustin May left Wednesday’s game with right elbow pain. That’s the same elbow that he had Tommy John surgery on a few years ago.
