Los Angeles Dodgers phenom Dustin May will miss the remainder of the 2021 season after a recent MRI showed UCL damage in his right throwing elbow.
May left his start on Saturday vs. the Brewers after throwing just 27 pitches. As soon as May threw the pitch, he was in obvious pain and immediately called for the trainers.
Dodgers manager Dave Roberts said after the game that May felt ‘kind of a shooting sensation’ threw his right throwing arm after throwing a curveball.
MLB Network reporter Jon Morosi reported earlier on Monday that the Dodgers had confirmed ‘some UCL damage’ in his right elbow during an initial examination, adding that the Dodgers would make a decision on May’s fate later in the day, Monday.
Less than two hours later the Dodgers confirmed that May will be undergoing Tommy John surgery on May 11th, and would be finished for the remainder of the season.
The 6’6”, 180-pound May was ranked the 20th best prospect in baseball by Baseball America going into last season, and the 23-year-old had already struck out 35 batters in just 23.0 innings this season, to the tune of a 2.74 ERA and 0.96 WHIP.
