After taking a line drive off of his foot last week, the situation looked scary for Dodgers pitcher Dustin May. The rookie right-hander who is tied for the team lead in starts with nine exited the game soon after and went for x-rays that came back “inconclusive.” A day later after further testing, the team let out a collective exhale when learning that his foot was not broken.
Over the weekend, May tested his ailing instep and declared himself ready to go. As did manager Dave Roberts. After Sunday night’s win over the cheating Astros, Doc talked about what comes next for Code Red.
He looked good. He did some PFPs [pitcher’s fielder practice] prior and he looked good. I think he threw 20 pitch ‘pen, used his entire mix and came out of it really good. So I don’t know exactly what day we’re going to pencil them in but I can see that San Diego series. He’ll be in there. So probably Wednesday.
As of the time of this writing, the Dodgers have yet to name their starters for the three-game series against the surging Padres — that is aside from the likely Wednesday start by May. The other probables are LHP Clayton Kershaw tonight and likely RHP Tony Gonsolin on Tuesday.
For the ailing LA rotation, the imminent return of Dustin May is a sight for sore eyes (and blisters).
