Dustin May’s disappointing return to the Los Angeles Dodgers after being sidelined with an injury in May may be slower than expected.카지노사이트
The Orange County Register, a local Los Angeles outlet, reported on Tuesday that May underwent additional elbow surgery.
According to the report, May underwent elbow surgery on April 19. The surgery was a reinforcement of the elbow ligament reconstruction (Tommy John surgery) he underwent in 2021.
Mei also underwent surgery on her elbow flexor muscles. The rehabilitation period is 12 months. This means that May won’t be able to return until the second half of the 2024 season, rather than this season.
If his rehabilitation is delayed, he could aim to return in the 2025 season. Worst case scenario, he’ll miss a season and a half after going down with an injury in May.
May pitched 48 innings in nine games last season before going down with a 4-1 record and a 2.63 ERA.
But injuries seemed to catch up with him. May started the 2021 season with a 2.74 ERA in five starts before an injury ended his season.
May is a right-handed orthodox pitcher who averages 98 mph on his fastball. Barring injury, he has the power to perform well in the starting rotation.
However, this is May’s second major injury since his major league debut, and he is in his mid-20s when he should be at his peak.
