To make room for Kickham on the 40-man roster, the club transferred Corey Knebel to the 60-day IL.
May exited Saturday’s start against Milwaukee in the bottom of the second inning. According to manager Dave Roberts, May described the issue as a “shooting sensation” in his elbow.
Roberts said that May will undergo an MRI exam to determine the extent of his injury when the club gets to Chicago to play the Cubs on Monday.
The 23-year-old May is off to a strong start in his third MLB season, recording a 2.74 ERA with a 13.7 K/9 rate — up from 7.1 last year — over five starts.
Kickham threw 14 innings for the Red Sox last season, making his first appearances in the Majors since 2014 with the Giants. The 32-year-old, who signed a Minor League deal with the Dodgers in January, owns a career 9.95 ERA over 44 1/3 innings as a big leaguer.
Knebel, meanwhile, is sidelined by a right lat injury. The Dodgers initially placed him on the IL on April 24.
