Dustin May To Make MLB Debut Friday

It’s been reported by Ron Cervenka of ThinkBlueLA and Jeff Passan of ESPN that Dodgers top pitching prospect Dustin May will be called up to make his MLB debut this Friday, August 2nd at Dodgers Stadium against the San Diego Padres.

May, 21, started the year in AA with the Tulsa Drillers. In 15 starts, he produced a 3.74 ERA with an 86/20 K/BB ratio in 79.1 innings pitched. On June 27, he was assigned to AAA Oklahoma City where in 5 starts, put up a 2.30 ERA with a 24/9 K/BB ratio in 27.1 innings.

Gingergaard, as he’s nicknamed, is ranked 35th in MLB Pipeline’s top 100 prospects. He’s been the topic of many trade rumors but as the deadline passed without the Dodgers making any significant moves as they’ve done in the few years before, there was some speculation as to whether he, along with other top Dodger prospects, would get the call to help add depth to certain aspects of the major league team. So far, that seems to hold true. The bullpen and the rotation were considered areas that needed to be addressed through the trade market. It looks as if Gonsolin and May might help solidify those weaknesses.
