Injuries plagued the Dodgers pitching unit at the most crucial moment of the season. Among those who were poised to show promise within the Dodgers lineup was Dustin May, who came back from injury before being re-injured and missing the postseason.
Now with key hurlers, Tyler Anderson and Andrew Heaney gone, along with the lack of adding depth so far, May once again comes into the limelight of promising pitching talent to help bolster the troubled unit. The talents are enough to keep the front office comfortable assuming he comes back fully healthy.
While fans may have some discomfort in the idea, Dodgers broadcaster Tim Neverett also sides with the idea of allowing May to take on a more prominent role. With a bigger workload, May is in line to do some damage (via MLB Network).
“With Dustin May, he’s full speed ahead. He came back last year and pitched in some games. They limited his innings, obviously. Limited his pitch count. But I think he’s gonna be full speed ahead, part of the rotation and a big part of the rotation coming up this spring. He’ll have a spot in the rotation, where it is we’ll just wait and see.”

Any help the team can get will be welcomed and with Walker Buehler‘s return still imminent, the fate of the Dodgers season can very well ride on the ability of May. The front office still remains content with the roster so far but only time will tell what exactly the plans are for the team.
