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.

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.

Trevor May was pulled after walking seven and giving up four runs in two innings against the A's in his major league debut.

If the Twins had it to do over again, it's safe to say they wouldn't have had May make his debut against the patient A's lineup. He walked five in a six-batter span at one point and twice forced runs in with bases-loaded walks. It was quite the mess, and if he struggles so mightily again next time out, he's likely in for a quick demotion. Hopefully, it won't come to that, though.

Twins recalled RHP Trevor May from Triple-A Rochester.

The 24-year-old right-hander will make his major league debut against the Athletics on Saturday, and will be given every opportunity to hold a spot in the rotation for the remainder of the season. He was dominant in 17 starts at Rochester, compiling a 2.93 ERA, 1.18 WHIP and 91/37 K/BB ratio over 95 1/3 innings. He's worth a look in AL-only and deeper mixed leagues.

Seth Stohs of reports that the Twins will promote pitching prospect Trevor May to make his major league debut on Saturday in Oakland.

It came down to May, Kris Johnson and Anthony Swarzak, with the Twins opting to give the youngster a shot. Acquired from the Phillies in the Ben Revere deal, May has had a terrific season at Triple-A Rochester, posting a 2.93 ERA and 91/37 K/BB ratio over 95 1/3 innings. The 24-year-old will face a tough test versus the A's in his debut but is worth a shot in AL-only leagues.

Twins pitching prospect Trevor May could be called up to make his major league debut on Saturday in Oakland.

May would be on regular rest Saturday. The young right-hander has been terrific at Triple-A Rochester this season, posting a 2.93 ERA and 91/37 K/BB ratio over 95 1/3 innings. The improvement in control is especially notable, as May has never held a BB/9 ratio below 4.0 before this year's 3.5 mark. The Twins could also choose to give Anthony Swarzak another spot start. Tommy Milone started Tuesday, so he's not an option.

Twins prospect right-hander Trevor May was dominant on Monday, striking out 11 batters over 8 1/3 innings, allowing three hits, two walks, and one run for Triple-A Rochester.

May dominated a lineup that included Mookie Betts, Shane Victorino, Will Middlebrooks, and Garin Cecchini, and was going for the complete game shutout, but after getting the first batter in the ninth inning, he walked Betts and Mike McCoy, then allowed a single to Cecchini. He was replaced with Aaron Shaw, who closed out the game. May has been dominant since mid-May, holding opposing batters to a .188/.268/.273 line over his last seven starts which have spanned 45 2/3 innings.

Twins right-handed pitching prospect Trevor May threw seven shutout innings, scattering four singles and two walks while striking out four batters for Triple-A Rochester on Saturday.

Opposing batters are hitting .196/.274/.281 against May for the season. He has a 2.62 ERA, a 1.109 WHIP, and 8.8 K/9 for the season. If he keeps this up and the Twins have a need, he could be pitching at Target Field later this summer.

Twins prospect RHP Trevor May had another strong start Sunday, allowing a hit and a walk in six scoreless innings for Triple-A Rochester.

The 24-year-old struck out four batters in the outing. Despite surrendering four runs in his previous start, May has enjoyed a solid start to the season, as he owns a 2.93 ERA and 16/3 strikeout-to-walk ratio through 15 1/3 innings. The biggest question with May has always been his ability to consistently throw strikes, but that hasn't been an issue so far this season. If he keeps it up, May could get a chance to prove he belongs in the major leagues this year earlier than expected.
