Dodgers: Brusdar Graterol Will Start Today’s Game Against the Padres, Not Dustin May (Dodgers Nation)



It wouldn’t be a true 2020 Dodgers season without some surprising twists and turns. One of those surprises came again on Wednesday afternoon when it was announced that Dustin May would NOT be starting the series finale against the Padres.

Instead, reliever Brusdar Graterol will make his second start in three days for the Dodgers. Graterol opened up Sunday’s game against the Astros in what ultimately turned out to be a bullpen game for Los Angeles. The announcement from the team came just three hours before first pitch

Dustin May was scheduled to get the start for the Dodgers prior to the announcement. May had been coming off of an outing where he pitched just one inning, but was hit in the foot by a line drive. Tests all came back negative for May, but he needed some time to get the swelling on his foot down. It appears something has changed with that, stay tuned for updates.
