In a media huddle Wednesday morning, Dodgers’ manager Dave Roberts gave a few injury updates on players. One of the guys mentioned was Dustin May, who Roberts admitted was falling behind everyone else in camp. May has been sidelined with soreness that has kept him from throwing off of a mound.

The Dodgers were already packed with potential starting options heading into camp. Adding David Price in the Mookie Betts trade just made a crowded situation even more crowded. As it stands, there are at least ten guys on the roster that could be utilized in a starting role.
Dustin May’s soreness could make him one of the odd men out. Roberts already divulged that he envisions May and Tony Gonsolin as starters long-term. He also announced that Julio Urias was going to be taking the fourth spot in the rotation, and Alex Wood seemed confident he got the fifth spot.
Logically, that would leave May to start the season at Triple-A to get starts in. The news of him not throwing off of a mound yet further exacerbates the issue.
