It’s never any fun for a player to get hurt and have to miss time.
May was injured last season in Milwaukee and was shut down for the remainder of the season as it was revealed that he had done some damage to his UCL, which would require Tommy John surgery, a surgery dreaded by all pitchers across the league.
But the time has come for May to return.
Late on Wednesday afternoon, May shared his own little hype video on Twitter, detailing the process he went through to recover from surgery and hyping up his return after months of rehab.

On The Road To Recovery
May is almost back, Dodgers fans!
Not only is he a young and exciting pitcher with a ton of upside, but he’s somebody who can strengthen your starting rotation.
With Trevor Bauer suspended for the next two years and likely never returning to baseball, May helps plug a hole and joins a solid rotation that already features Clayton Kershaw, Walker Buehler, Julio Urias, and Tyler Anderson.
May went 1-1 with a 2.74 ERA in 2021 before his injury.
He owns a lifetime record of 6-5 with a career ERA of 2.93.
May is one of the Dodgers’ top young pitchers who can be a starter and slot into the bullpen if need be.
He’s versatile, which is something every big-league club needs out of their pitchers.
If he’s not starting, he can go multiple innings in relief.
But it’s good news for the Dodgers that he is close to returning.
They have dealt with a few injuries on their pitching staff, and May should help them plug a hole until some of their injured pitchers return.
