Trevor May yielded five runs across 5 1/3 innings Monday in a loss to the Royals.
May, who was added to the rotation in place of the injured Ricky Nolasco, gave up eight hits (including a solo homer to Kendrys Morales) and an intentional walk while striking out four batters. The 25-year-old is too hard to trust in most fantasy leagues right now, but at least the Twins are finally going with some youth in their rotation. Of course, it's not like they had much choice.

Twins recalled RHP Trevor May from Triple-A Rochester.

He's assuming the spot in the Twins rotation vacated by the injured Ricky Nolasco and will get the ball for Monday's home opener against the Royals. The 25-year-old was a trainwreck in 10 appearances (nine starts) for the Twins in 2014, compiling a 7.88 ERA and 1.77 WHIP over 45 2/3 innings.
Apr 11 - 11:21 AM

Trevor May is expected to be recalled to start on Monday against the Royals.

He's taking Ricky Nolasco's (elbow) spot in the rotation. There had been some thought that the Twins could push Phil Hughes back to Monday's home opener, but Hughes will stay on turn Sunday. It's not clear at this point how long Nolasco will be out, but there's certainly a chance May will be in the rotation for a while.

Twins optioned RHP Trevor May to Triple-A Rochester.

The 25-year-old was in camp competing for a spot in the rotation, but the Twins would like him to show more consistency at the minor league level first. He pitched well in three Grapefruit League outings, posting a 4.22 ERA, 1.13 WHIP and 9/2 K/BB ratio in 10 2/3 innings.
Mar 28 - 8:41 AM

Trevor May surrendered four runs and eight hits in 4 2/3 innings Friday versus the Pirates.

This is probably the death knell for May's rotation hopes. He gave up dingers to Gregory Polanco and Tony Sanchez, plus a triple and four doubles. Tommy Milone appears to be the favorite to break camp as the Twins' fifth starter.
Mar 27 - 5:22 PM

Trevor May pitched four hitless innings, striking out three, against the Rays on Satursday.

The only batter to reach against May did so on an error. We'd like to see May get the fifth-starter gig in Minnesota after he showed considerable improvement last September. However, since Mike Pelfrey is owed a bunch of money and May still has options, we don't expect it to happen.
Mar 21 - 4:55 PM

Trevor May made his spring debut on Wednesday, allowing one run in two innings and striking out four versus the Rays.

May was held back by the flu last week, and he's still a bit behind the rest of the competition for the fifth spot in Minnesota's rotation. His chances of winning the job seem to rest on the Twins' coming to terms with the likelihood that Mike Pelfrey can't help them as a starter.
Mar 11 - 5:14 PM

Trevor May (flu) threw 15-20 pitches off the mound Tuesday with no issue.

May was among a handful of players in Twins' camp who came down with the flu, but he's feeling better now and plans to face hitters on Wednesday. The 25-year-old posted a 7.88 ERA across nine starts and one relief appearance in his first taste of the majors last year and will likely begin 2015 in the minors. However, he should surface in the Twins' rotation at some point.
Mar 3 - 3:42 PM

Trevor May notched a quality start but took the loss on Thursday, allowing three runs in six innings, as the Twins fell to the Tigers.

All of the damage came on two home runs: a two-run shot by Victor Martinez, and a Miguel Cabrera solo blast. You can hardly fault the rookie for getting beat by two of the game's best. Overall, he gave up five hits and a walk while striking out seven. May finishes his season at 3-6 with a 7.88 ERA, a 1.77 WHIP, and a 44/22 K/BB ratio. There were a few bright spots despite the ugly stats, and he'll hope to build on that when spring training resumes on February.

Trevor May was batted around by the Indians for seven runs on eight hits in just 4 2/3 innings on Saturday.

May allowed three runs in the second, the big blow being a Mike Aviles two-run triple. He also gave up a three-run homer to Yan Gomes in the fifth, which drove May from the game. In addition to the eight hits and seven runs, May struck out three and walked two. The start was a disappointing one, as it came on the heels of a ten strikeout performance against the White Sox in his last outing. May has the talent to be a major league starter, but so far, it's been a struggle. He holds a 8.39 ERA and 1.89 WHIP in eight starts, while allowing a .327 BAA. These numbers simply won't cut it at the big league level.

Trevor May struck out 10 while allowing three runs over six innings in the Twins' 6-4 win over the White Sox Sunday.

May is finally starting to show why the Twins are so high on him, producing his first double-digit strikeout game in seven starts. He gave up just five hits, including a solo homer, and he didn't walk a batter. The win was May's third in a row to bring him to 3-4 on the year. May will look to keep rolling Saturday against the Indians.

Trevor May continued to battle his spotty control but still earned the win, allowing two runs over five innings against the Indians on Tuesday.

May walked four, pushing his season total up to 19 in 29 innings. The Indians also logged five hits, but were able to score only the two runs against him, both of which came in the second inning. Now with seven starts under his belt, May owns an ugly 8.38 ERA, 2.13 WHIP, and 24/19 K/BB ratio. He'll finish off the Twins' road trip on Sunday against the White Sox in his next start.

Trevor May was blasted for eight runs over 4 2/3 innings Friday in a loss to the Orioles.

May held the Orioles scoreless over the first three innings, but he gave up five runs in the fourth (including a grand slam to Chris Davis) and three in the fifth (including a two-run homer by Delmon Young. On the bright side, he had eight strikeouts and one walk while inducing 16 swing and misses. Still, the rookie right-hander now owns a 10.42 ERA over his first five appearances (four starts) in the majors and can't be trusted in fantasy leagues.

Trevor May was lit up for five earned runs in 5 1/3 innings as the Twins dropped the second half of Saturday's doubleheader against the Tigers.

The Twins routed the Tigers in the early tilt, but May let them down in the nightcap. Detroit got to the rookie right-hander for 11 hits -- one double and 10 singles. May is now 0-3 with an 8.79 ERA and 2.58 WHIP.
Sat, Aug 23, 2014 11:38:00 PM

Trevor May failed to escape the fifth inning, falling to 0-2 in a loss to the Royals on Monday.

To May's credit, he was strong to start, shutting the Royals out through four. But in the fifth inning, he walked three batters to load the bases before allowing three consecutive singles in a three-run inning for the Royals. Overall, he yielded seven hits, walked four, and recorded one strikeout. If the Twins permit, the rookie right-hander will take a 9.00 ERA and a lopsided 3/13 K/BB ratio into a start on Saturday at home against the Tigers.
