The Dodgers hope they avoided a serious injury today but all they know now is that Dustin May was able to walk off the field under his own power after he suffered getting hit by a batted ball.
In the fourth inning of today’s game against the Diamondbacks, Dustin May was struck in the head by a Jake Lamb line drive. Here’s a video of that play, just a little warning as it does show the ball striking May in the head.
