eThe Dodgers made a number of roster moves ahead of their game on Sunday morning. The most notable being Dustin May, who was placed on the 10-day injured list with a right arm injury.
May left yesterday’s game after he felt a “shooting sensation” in his arm. When speaking to reporters following the game, manager Dave Roberts said he’ll be receiving an MRI when the team is in Chicago on Monday. At this moment we don’t know the extent of the injury, but Roberts didn’t sound too optimistic when talking about it.
The other move was with Corey Knebel, who was officially transferred over to the 60-day injured list, meaning he’s out through at least the All-Star break. About a week ago, Knebel was diagnosed with a right lat strain. Roberts said the team doesn’t know the severity of the injury, but said he’d be out for months and was hopeful he’d pitch again for LA at some point this season.
With Knebel being sent to the 60-day IL, that opened up a spot on the 40-man roster. The Dodgers purchased the contract of left-handed pitcher Mike Kickham. The 32-year-old made six appearances for the Red Sox in 2020. He was with the Dodgers during Spring Training, allowing four runs in 10 1⁄3 innings with 10 strikeouts.
With a depleted bullpen after a lot of work over the last two days, Kickham brings a much-needed fresh arm to the team.
