Aaron Hicks among four players trimmed from Twins' camp
|by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com|
|(3/28/15) Twins outfielder Aaron Hicks was among the four players trimmed from Minnesota's big-league camp on Saturday, according to MLB.com. THe 25-year-old Hicks struggled to make an impact at the plate this spring, batting .206 (7 for 34) with two RBI in 13 Grapefruit League games.
Thar's what I want to become. I don't want to be a Triple-A player. I want to be in the big leagues," Hicks said, per the Pioneer Press. "I'm starting to understand this game at the big league level."
Eddie Rosario and Trevor May were optioned to Triple-A Rochester, while Mark Hamburger was reassigned down to minor-league camp.
Twins' May struggles Friday in perhaps last bid to make rotation
|by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com|
|(3/27/15) Twins starting pitcher Trevor May took the mound Friday against the Pirates in perhaps his last bid to make the starting rotation. Unfortunately, it wasn't a banner outing for the May.
The right-handed hurler allowed four runs on eight hits and one walk in 4 2/3 innings. He struck out two.
May (0-1) allowed a solo home run to Gregory Polanco in the first inning and a solo home run to Tony Sanchez in the fourth inning. May has a 4.22 ERA through three spring outings (two starts).
"He gave up some hard-hit balls," manager Paul Molitor said, per the Pioneer Press. "Overall he got dinged up a little bit. Probably wasn't his best day. Overall, no complaints with that young man this spring."
Twins pitcher Trevor May throws four scoreless innings Saturday
|by Brandon Wise | CBSSports.com|
|(3/21/15) Twins pitcher Trevor May threw four no-hit innings in Saturday's game against the Rays. May, who also did not allow a run, threw 30 of 42 pitches for strikes Saturday. May is being considered for Minnesota's fifth spot in the starting rotation.
"I felt good going in and I felt like I could locate all of my pitches pretty well, so I just kind of stayed with the program there, to build off my last time out," May said. "Just kind of fill up the zone and make them beat me. Try to establish both sides of the plate and work off that."
Twins' Molitor discusses battle for final rotation spot
|by R.J. White | CBSSports.com|
|(3/19/15) Twins manager Paul Molitor is facing a tough decision with a healthy battle underway for the team's fifth-starter role between Mike Pelfrey, Tommy Milone, Alex Meyer and Trevor May, MLB.com reports.
"We hope it's tough because people are performing well," Molitor said. "Mike has had a good spring to this point and is scheduled to pitch again in Clearwater, Fla., [against Philadelphia] on the 23rd. And Milone has looked good and we'll see him [Saturday]. Meyer is a little behind on pitch count but has been fine, and May seems like he has a little more mound presence so far than he did last year. That's probably what that experience did to him."
Pelfrey and Milone remain the top two candidates for the job, with Meyer and May having options remaining that can allow them to open the season at Triple-A. Pelfrey was impressive in a split-squad start Wednesday.
"Mostly, his fastball is getting the groundballs he needs, but he's using his split-finger more and gaining confidence with that pitch, and mixing in his curveball, which he hasn't done for a while," Molitor said. "His pace was pretty good, and we're always looking for those little things like pace and holding runners, and he knows that's important."
Twins' Molitor: Trevor May, Tommy Milone pitch 'well' Tuesday
|by R.J. White | CBSSports.com|
|(3/17/15) Twins manager Paul Molitor said that pitchers Trevor May and Tommy Milone "threw the ball well" in minor-league action Tuesday, MLB.com reports.
"They both threw the ball well," Molitor said of the two rotation candidates. "Milone gave up a two-run homer in the first on I think a cutter that didn't get in far enough. But they both threw strikes."
Molitor watched the outing from behind the plate rather than at his normal post in the dugout.
"I had a different perspective watching from behind, which I don't normally," Molitor said. "But it gave me a better feel on how their pitches were looking and moving. I thought May did a good job using all of his pitches. His command of his secondary pitches was good, and for him that's something I've been concerned about. And they both did well with the running game and got through it clean for the most part."
May and Milone are competing with Mike Pelfrey and Alex Meyer for the final spot in the team's rotation.
