Trevor May didn't last long in Friday's loss to the Indians, allowing two runs on five hits over three innings.
May got the start in place of the injured Phil Hughes (back). He allowed a two-run homer to Giovanny Urshela in the second inning to account for both runs on his line. A former top prospect, the 25-year-old had been working in relief duty prior to Hughes' injury, which explains why he only lasted three innings. In 28 games (15 starts), he holds a 4.15 ERA and 1.36 WHIP. Don't expect magic here, but May could have value in deeper AL-only formats if he sticks in the rotation. He'll stretch out the arm on the road against the Orioles in his next scheduled start. Aug 15 - 12:05 AM

Trevor May will start Friday against the Indians.

May is needed back in the rotation with Phil Hughes (back) landing on the disabled list. The 25-year-old former top prospect had been looking sharp in relief and could take on some fantasy value if his return to a starting role lasts a while. May owns a 5.32 ERA and 129 strikeouts in 140 1/3 career major league innings (24 starts, 14 relief appearances).
Aug 13 - 12:28 PM

The Twins are moving Trevor May to the bullpen.

There was speculation Minnesota would go with a six-man rotation upon Ervin Santana's return, but clearly that's not happening. Manager Paul Molitor said May's move to the pen isn't permanent and suggested the Twins could reassess the rotation after the All-Star break.
Jul 4 - 5:34 PM

Trevor May suffered a loss despite a nice effort Wednesday, yielding just two runs -- one earned -- over 6 1/3 innings versus the Reds.

May might have been pitching for his spot in the rotation and showed well, allowing six hits and three walks while recording six strikeouts. It was a much-needed bounce-back effort from the right-hander after he failed to make it out of the first inning in his last outing. Ervin Santana will join the rotation on Sunday, and May might be the likely to be demoted despite today's effort. If he sticks around, he'll face the Orioles next week.
Jul 1 - 3:34 PM

Trevor May failed to make it out of the first inning Friday against the Brewers, allowing six runs (five earned) on six hits.

May allowed a leadoff homer to Gerardo Parra and it was all downhill from there. Eight out of the nine batters he faced managed to reach base before Twins manager Paul Molitor brought the hook. The young right-hander came into Friday's outing with a 1.88 ERA over his last four starts, so it was hard to see this one coming. He'll try to put the clunker in the rear-view mirror when he faces the Reds next Friday on the road.
Jun 26 - 11:27 PM

Trevor May allowed just one run over six innings Saturday in a no-decision versus the Cubs.

Chicago wound up winning in 10 innings. May was pretty sharp, scattering seven hits and two walks over his six frames while striking out seven. He'll carry a 4.03 ERA and 1.29 WHIP into next week's outing in Milwaukee.
Jun 20 - 5:35 PM

Trevor May lasted just five frames Monday, yielding three runs in a loss to the Cardinals.

Two of the five hits May gave up left the yard and he needed 83 pitches to get through his five innings, so Twins manager Paul Molitor didn't think twice about pinch-hitting for him to lead off the sixth. It's the first time in his last six tries that he didn't go at least six innings. May will attempt to bounce back this weekend versus the Cubs.
Jun 16 - 12:16 AM

Trevor May allowed just one run over six innings but was saddled with a tough-luck loss Tuesday against the Royals.

It wasn't all great -- May scattered seven hits and three walks over his six innings of work -- but he deserved a better fate than what he got. May struck out five in the start. The right-hander has now turned in two straight strong performances to lower his ERA to 4.16 despite falling to 4-4. May will look to continue rolling in an interleague date with the Cardinals on Monday.
Jun 9 - 11:41 PM

Trevor May struck out nine over seven innings as the Twins beat the Red Sox 2-0 in the second game of Wednesday's doubleheader.

May combined with Blaine Boyer and Glen Perkins on a two-hitter for his fourth win in 10 starts. He has an impressive 50/9 K/BB ratio in 56 2/3 innings, suggesting there's some mixed-league potential here. Still, we'd be more optimistic if he were pitching in front of a better defense.
Jun 3 - 9:40 PM

Trevor May pitched decently in a no-decision against the Blue Jays on Friday, allowing four runs on eight hits over his six innings of work.

May punched out five on the night while issuing just one free pass. The Twins staked him to an early 4-0 lead after one inning, but he was unable to hold on to earn his fourth victory of the season. He'll carry a 5.07 ERA, 1.39 WHIP and 41/9 K/BB ratio into Wednesday's start against the Red Sox in Boston.
May 29 - 11:27 PM

Trevor May logged a quality start in a no-decision against the Rays on Saturday, allowing three runs on seven hits over 6 2/3 innings.

May punched out three on the afternoon and didn't issue a walk. He will look to carryover this strong outing when he takes on the White Sox in Chicago on Sunday.
May 16 - 6:15 PM

Trevor May was lit up for six runs over just four innings of work in Sunday's loss to the Indians.

May whiffed four batters on the day, but he yielded nine hits and walked three in the outing, needing 89 pitches to cover four frames. The right-hander has failed to pitch deep into games consistently, but he had mostly been able to limit the damage of late with no more than two runs allowed over his previous four outings. May will try to bounce back the next time out versus the Rays.
May 10 - 4:36 PM

Trevor May allowed two runs over 5 2/3 innings of work but took the loss against the Athletics on Tuesday.

May was good enough to win but Jesse Chavez was up to the task on the other side as well. May gave up five hits and walked two, with the A's scoring their runs on a couple of RBI singles. The 25-year-old struck out three in the start. He'd won his previous two decisions, dropping to 2-2 with the loss, and he'll try to regain a winning record Sunday at the Indians.
May 5 - 11:55 PM

Trevor May pitched 5 2/3 innings of two-run ball Thursday against the White Sox.

May was handed an easy win with the Twins offense racking up nine runs in the first three innings, making it a bit disappointing that he couldn't get through six innings. Still, it was a positive effort overall, and he's 2-1 with a 4.43 ERA, which will be good enough to keep him in the rotation following Ricky Nolasco's return.
Apr 30 - 11:22 PM

Trevor May (arm) has been cleared to make his scheduled start Thursday against the White Sox.

May had to be lifted from his outing Saturday versus the Mariners after taking a Kyle Seager line drive off his right forearm. He threw Monday without issue.
