May has been kind to the Dodgers. They’ve won 18 of their 26 games so far this month, which has propelled them to within reaching distance of the Colorado Rockies. Within this hot stretch, there have been players who’ve also hit their stride and those who’ve hit walls.
The Dodgers’ depth has been tested early on. With players going down here and there, others must step up. For a good chunk of May, the Dodgers were surviving without at least two starting pitchers.
The services of Logan Forsythe and Adrian Gonzalez were also absent, while Andrew Toles went down for the season. Justin Turner recently went down along with Joc Pederson, though both should return shortly. However, these injuries opened up spots for players like Cody Bellinger and Alex Wood. Both who have made it onto the list of best players for the month of May.
