Dodgers Electric Starter Making Encouraging Progress


Dustin May is scheduled to throw three innings Friday for Triple-A Oklahoma City. 

If everything progresses well, his next outing will see May throw four innings, then five innings, and six the start after that.

Dodgers' manager Dave Roberts said May will increase his workload by one inning each rehab start. 

If all goes well with these rehab starts, there's a very good chance we see May back with the Dodgers at some point in mid-August.

The twenty-four-year-old only appeared in 24 innings last season, posting a 2.74 ERA, 0.96 WHIP, and 35 strikeouts.

Over his three-year career, May has thrown 113 innings, an ERA of 2.93, a 1.07 WHIP, and 111 strikeouts. He owns a 6-5 all-time record.

If May can be successful and remain healthy upon his return, the Dodgers will receive a massive boost without having to trade anyone to acquire it.
