Trevor May has been diagnosed with a stress fracture in his lower back.
Back issues have been plaguing May throughout the season and the root of the problem was revealed this week after a visit with specialist Dr. Robert Watkins on Monday. Even before that diagnosis was rendered, the 26-year-old right-hander had already been shut down for the remainder of the 2016 season. He expects to begin throwing again in late December or early January. Sep 21 - 9:53 PM

Trevor May has been shut down for the remainder of the season after experiencing a back flareup.

The back has been giving him problems all year. Once a promising starting pitching prospect, the 26-year-old May finishes the 2016 campaign with a rough 5.27 ERA in 44 relief appearances. He did strike out 60 batters in just 42 2/3 innings. May will likely be stretched out for another shot at a rotation spot leading into 2017.
Sep 13 - 4:46 PM

Twins activated RHP Trevor May from the 15-day disabled list.

May has been out since early August with a lower back strain. He'll return to a middle relief role.
Sep 9 - 4:54 PM

Trevor May (back) worked a two-inning simulated game on Tuesday without issue.

If all continues to go smoothly, he should be activated off the disabled list Friday. The 25-year-old right-hander holds a disappointing 4.89 ERA in 42 1/3 total innings this season, though he had been pitching better in the second half. He should see some high-leverage situations down the stretch as the Twins try to figure out his role for 2017.
Sep 6 - 5:31 PM

Trevor May (back) completed a 31-pitch bullpen session on Saturday.

He'll advance to throwing live batting practice on Tuesday. May has missed the last month with a lower back strain. The 25-year-old has had a rough year overall but has pitched slightly better since the All-Star break (3.55 ERA in 11 outings).
Sep 3 - 6:02 PM

Trevor May (back) said Tuesday that he is aiming to return for "the last few weeks of the season."

May has been on the disabled list since August 10 with a lower back strain and Twins manager Paul Molitor said last week that the right-hander still has some "imbalance," but a bone scan turned up clean and he has begun playing catch on flat ground at 90 feet. "It’s good to have goals," May said Tuesday. "I would love to get back the last few weeks of the season and show I’m healthy going into the offseason. There’s probably going to be some changes up there in the front office. You’ve got to be healthy. You’ve got to be ready."
Aug 23 - 8:24 PM

A bone scan on Trevor May's back came up clean.

But it doesn't sound like he's going to be cleared for throwing anytime soon. Twins manager Paul Molitor told reporters Tuesday that May still has some "imbalance." The righty reliever remains out indefinitely.
Aug 16 - 4:53 PM

An initial diagnosis from the Mayo Clinic showed that Trevor May's back issue is mostly muscular.

He'll undergo a bone scan next just in case, but it appears he's not dealing with a serious injury. More will be known about a potential timetable for May after his next exam.
Aug 12 - 5:32 PM

Twins placed RHP Trevor May on the 15-day disabled list with a lower back strain.

May missed most of June with a back problem and it is rearing its ugly head again. The 26-year-old right-hander owns a disappointing 4.89 ERA in 42 1/3 innings this season despite his shiny 59/16 K/BB ratio. It's not clear how long he will be sidelined.
Aug 10 - 2:13 PM

Trevor May (back) pitched a scoreless inning Tuesday in his return to the Twins' bullpen.

May missed nearly a full month because of a back injury. He worked the seventh inning of Minnesota's 11-4 rout of the Athletics on Tuesday night, striking out one of the four batters he faced. The 26-year-old right-hander holds an impressive 41/10 K/BB ratio in 27 2/3 frames this season, but it has come with a 5.86 ERA. If he can do a better job of run prevention going forward, May could eventually see some save opportunities.
Jul 6 - 8:10 AM

Trevor May (back) is expected to be activated from the disabled list Tuesday.

He was originally scheduled to be activated Monday, but the Twins will give his troublesome back one more day of rest. May has been on the DL since June 10.
Jul 4 - 11:35 AM

Twins manager Paul Molitor said Sunday that Trevor May (back) will be activated from the disabled list on Monday.

He'll add another arm to a depleted Twins relief corps. He has been sidelined since early June due to back spasms.
Jul 3 - 5:45 PM

Trevor May (back) will pitch on Saturday and Sunday for Triple-A Rochester before being re-evaluated.

It presumably will be the last hurdle for him to clear before he's activated. May has missed the last three weeks of action due to back spasms.
Jun 30 - 11:18 AM

Trevor May (back) will begin a minor league rehab assignment Sunday with Triple-A Rochester.

May is scheduled to throw an inning on Sunday. The Twins might want to see him pitch on back-to-back days before activating him. The 26-year-old has been sidelined for about two weeks with back spasms.
Jun 24 - 6:58 PM

Trevor May (back) will throw a bullpen session Friday.

If it goes well, he'll be sent to Triple-A Rochester to begin a rehab assignment. May, who has been out the last two weeks with back spasms, has posted a 6.08 ERA, 1.50 WHIP and 40/10 K/BB ratio over 26 2/3 innings this season.
