Dodgers phenom Dustin May to have TJ surgery

Dodgers phenom Dustin May will undergo Tommy John surgery to repair damage to the UCL in his right elbow, the club announced on Monday. The surgery will be performed on May 11 by Dr. Neal ElAttrache.

May landed on the injured list after leaving early during Saturday’s 6-5 loss to the Brewers. May was in the middle of an at-bat with two outs in the second inning when he visibly winced and signaled for the athletic trainer after throwing a pitch. Manager Dave Roberts described it as a “shooting sensation” in the right-hander’s pitching elbow.

May, who finished fifth in National League Rookie of the Year voting last fall, has pitched in parts of the last three seasons for the Dodgers. He is 1-1 with a 2.74 ERA in five starts this season.

This sucks.

Seemed clear his season just based on his reaction mid pitch before he called the trainer out. What a bummer, his starts this year were really fun to watch.

Injuries are sad.

TJS has a weird consolation prize.

it takes more than a year to return, which if course is a disaster.

but return they do, often to have solid careers.

the number of pitchers who have had TJS is now so enormous that it feels like it's almost baked into a career, alas.

They return yes, but frankly, I don’t think many are the same. And many of them succumb a second time.

All those preseason projections that stated the Dodgers would miss the playoffs only 1 out of 100 times?

Those scenarios most likely involved a ####-ton of injuries.

I know no one cares, but I have NINE FRIGGIN GUYS ON MY FANTASY TEAM on the Injured List now.
