Dodgers’ right-handed pitcher Dustin May was removed from the game on Sunday after being hit on the head by a 91 MPH line drive off the bat of Jake Lamb.
May was down on the field for about a minute but he was able to stand up and talk to Manager Dave Robers and the trainers.

He walked off the field under his own power, with the trainers next to him, and went into the clubhouse for further evaluation.
Hopefully, the injury isn’t serious. The fact that he was able to walk off the field is a good sign.
May entered the game as a reliever in the fourth inning, replacing starter Ross Stripling. He struck out one and allowed three runs on four hits.
Stay tuned for any updates.
Dustin May passed his concussion test and he is doing well, according to Alanna Rizzo.
After the game, May said the ball hit his glove before hitting his head.
