The Dodgers injury bug just won’t stop in 2021. While they already have a number of guys working their way back from aches and pains, they added another to the list on Saturday. This time it was a starting pitcher to go down.
With 2 outs in the bottom of the second in Milwaukee, Dustin May uncorked a pitch to Billy McKinney. May grimaced in pain and immediately motioned for the Dodgers medical staff to come out and get him. He walked off of the mound and was replaced by Garrett Cleavinger.

It was not immediately clear what the issue was when May called for the trainer. But he did appear to be in a great deal of pain when the pitch was thrown. The Dodgers flamethrower had just allowed a slot homerun earlier in the inning to Luis Urias.
if May has to miss any extended period of time, it would be another huge blow to the Dodgers. He’s been part of the very effective and efficient starting staff that has helped keep them in games throughout the season.
Trevor Bauer was seen in the dugout talking to Dave Roberts about something while pointing at his forearm. This came just after May was removed from the game, so it’s entirely possible that May experience pain in his arm.
