Trevor May will undergo Tommy John surgery on Wednesday.

May received a second opinion on his torn ulnar collateral ligament Tuesday and made the announcement himself via Twitter that he would be going under the knife. It's a bummer for a guy who would have been one of the more talented guys on the Twins' staff, whether it was as a starter or reliever. He'll miss all of 2017 and might get a bit of a late start to 2018.

Trevor May is expected to get a second opinion on his elbow on Tuesday.

May was diagnosed with a torn ulnar collateral ligament in his elbow about a week and a half ago. Tommy John surgery remains the most likely scenario here, but naturally he's getting another opinion before going through with such a procedure. Assuming Tommy John surgery is necessary, May would miss the entire 2017 season and would likely get a late start on the 2018 season, as well.

Trevor May is going for a second opinion on his injured elbow.

May suffered what's believed to be a torn UCL Wednesday in an exhibition game against the United States. Twins manager Paul Molitor said the second opinion is mostly for May's peace of mind, adding that "our medical people say it's pretty clear cut." Assuming the diagnosis is confirmed, May is almost certainly headed for Tommy John surgery. That usual recovery window for Tommy John surgery is 12-15 months.

Mike Berardino of the St. Paul Pioneer Press reports that Trevor May has been diagnosed with a torn UCL.

While full details aren't known yet, it seems likely that May will be heading for Tommy John surgery which is a huge blow to the Twins. He had been being stretched out as a possible starter this spring but was also an option to pitch in a setup role out of the bullpen. He suffered the injury while pitching against Team USA in an exhibition game. May will head for a second opinion on Sunday to confirm the diagnosis.

Trevor May allowed two runs on four hits over 3 2/3 innings in Wednesday's win over the United States.

May scuffled early, surrendering a two-run double to Nolan Arenado in the first inning. He settled in after those troubles and finished up the evening with a pair of strikeouts on his line. May worked exclusively as a reliever in 2016, but is trying to stretch out as a starter this spring.
Mar 8 - 9:49 PM

Trevor May gave up a run in 2 1/3 innings Friday as the Twins edged the Phillies 4-3.

May hasn't been ineffective, but he's had to be pulled mid-inning from both of his appearances to date. Today, he allowed one hit and hit a batter in his 2 1/3 frames. He struck out two.
Mar 3 - 5:39 PM

Trevor May held the Nationals scoreless for 1 2/3 innings in his start Sunday.

May walked two and reached his pitch limit, so he didn't complete two innings as planned. Still, it was a decent first outing as he tries to return to the rotation after a year and a half in the pen.

Phil Miller of the Minneapolis Star-Tribune writes that Trevor May was assured by Twins chief baseball officer Derek Falvey that the team "pictures him as an every-fifth-day pitcher."

"[Falvey] seems really sincere about it. He said they want to get the best out of players, and I believe I can help us immensely by throwing 200 innings," May said. May pitched exclusively out of the bullpen in 2016, but he thinks the switching of roles led to his back problems. The righty holds a 5.61 ERA over 25 career starts, but he's struck out nearly a batter per inning and flashed upside in the rotation. The Twins seem committed to giving him another shot to start, which might mean more seasoning in the minors for Jose Berrios.
Jan 29 - 9:15 AM

Twins chief baseball officer Derek Falvey indicated Thursday that Trevor May could get another chance as a starter in 2016.

May pitched exclusively out of the bullpen this past season before going down with a stress fracture in his lower back, but he showed some potential as a starter in 2015. The new Twins front office are looking for upside wherever they can find it, so they are keeping their options open as spring training approaches. "He has the chance to impact us in either area," said Falvey. "We’ll partner with Trevor on our plans moving forward, find ways for him to be effective for us in either role and hopefully prepare him potentially to take on a starting role next year."

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.

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.

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.

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.
Tue, Sep 6, 2016 05:31:00 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).
