National League Division Series Padres: I got to say, this kid is really fun to watch. I think you can give kudos to the Dodgers minor league system for bringing him along really well. Dustin has poise, professionalism, and is focused everytime he takes the mound. In this stage of the playoffs you would think a younger pitcher such as him would be shy from the spotlight, not him.
Tuesday October 6th 2020: This was not a start for May, but he took the ball from Walker Buehler in the 5th inning, and pitched 2.0 perfect innings (no hits, no runs, no walks, 3 strikeouts).
Thursday October 8th 2020: This was considered a “bullpen game” and the ball was given to Dustin May, and it was a short start. In 1 inning of work he had 1 strikeout and 1 walk.
My overall assessment is that May has tremendous talent, but even more importantly he doesn’t feel afraid of the stage he is pitching on at all. I do feel like in his appearances he still needs to figure out how to keep his pitch count down, to maximize his starts. If Dustin can accomplish this sooner than later, he can go toe to toe with any staff, especially with this upcoming National League Championship Series against this very good Atlanta pitching staff.
