Twins manager Paul Molitor indicated last week that the club will likely keep Trevor May in the bullpen.
"Unless something changes, he is going to probably be a guy I want to keep out in the bullpen," Molitor said. May spent the first three months of last season in the Twins' rotation and showed flashes, but he really thrived after being moved to the 'pen, posting a 2.87 ERA and 37/8 K/BB ratio over 31 1/3 innings. He'll come to spring training as a starter, but it sounds like the Twins envision him breaking camp as one of Glen Perkins' setup men. Mon, Dec 21, 2015 07:13:00 PM

Trevor May (hip/back) is available out of the bullpen for Wednesday's doubleheader against the Indians.

Trevor May (back, hip) is likely unavailable Tuesday.

May has made just one appearance since September 19 due to lingering back and hip discomfort. The 26-year-old right-hander will probably carry a day-to-day status the rest of the way. He's pitched well since being moved to the Minnesota bullpen.

Trevor May (hip/back) was unavailable to pitch Monday.

May has been dealing with a left hip/back issue for a while now. It looks like it will be touch-and-go with him during the final week.

Trevor May (hip/back) could be available out of the bullpen Friday.

May has been dealing with a left hip/back issue recently. He's pitched well in relief for the Twins, boasting a 3.14 ERA and 32/7 K/BB ratio over 28 2/3 innings.

Trevor May was unavailable to pitch Tuesday because of a lingering left hip/back issue.

May has been bothered by the ailment for the last week or so. The Twins trainers want to get rid of the problem before he's cleared to pitch again, so it sounds like May will probably be unavailable for a few days.

Trevor May (hip) struck out one over a scoreless frame in his return to the mound Saturday.

May was unavailable for a few days after visiting a chiropractor to have his hip adjusted. He boasts a 3.14 ERA and 32/7 K/BB ratio over 28 2/3 innings since moving to the bullpen.

Trevor May (hip) is unlikely to return to action on Thursday.

May visited a chiropractor and had his hip adjusted on Thursday, but it sounds as though the team will hold him out an additional day to be on the safe side. The right-hander owns a 3.52 ERA and 33/7 K/BB ratio over 30 2/3 innings since shifting to the bullpen in early July.

Trevor May was unavailable out of the Twins' bullpen Wednesday due to back and hip tenderness.

Consider him day-to-day. May has done a decent job since his demotion to the bullpen in early July, posting a 3.52 ERA and 33/7 K/BB ratio across 30 2/3 innings. That stat line includes a rough three-inning spot start he made August 14 against the Indians.

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.

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).

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.

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.

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.

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.
