Opening, bulking, starting, just a bullpen arm? I want to add speculatively but I wish there was more info

Same here, he's just sitting there but moves are limited. Does anyone know if he's starting?

Guessing as a reliever.  Thet are dessparate for good arms in the pen.

 

Could also be he's the 5th starter and Urias is moving (staying?) in the pen and Stripling will come back to a relief role.

Only speculating, but Buehler is slated for Friday currently. If May was coming up in the bullpen, I’d think it would say “is being recalled Friday” because they have no idea if he’d be needed. Because it says “will make his major league debut,” I gotta think he’s starting and they’re pushing everyone else back. My $0.02.

Is he a must add? 

 

Yup. Like all rookie arms he carries plenty of risk but he is a top 30ish prospect and has very much earned his pedigree with a fastball that can touch 97 with movement, plus Curve/plus Cutter, and very high spin rates on all of em. He's a worthy lottery ticket. 

EDIT: my "analysis" above was real similar to the Rotoworld blurb that popped up on the main page. I feel dirty.

Dodgers RHP prospect Dustin May will make his MLB debut on Friday when he starts against the Padres.

May is one of the top pitching prospects in baseball, and the Dodgers have been hesitant to give up the 21-year-old in trade talks, for good reason. He possesses a fastball that can get into the mid-to-high 90 mph range, and he has two more plus pitches in a cutter/slider and curve, with the ability to command those offerings and a solid change. There's always risk with rookie hurlers, but May has the stuff to be successful right now.

As someone who covers the Dodgers think just below the ceiling of Walker Buehler type upside. 

If Buehler is Degrom, he’s Thor. Does that make sense? 

Whoaaa that’s a pretty bold comparison!
