Aaron Hicks among four players trimmed from Twins' camp


by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(3/28/2015) 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
(3/27/2015) 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
(3/21/2015) 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
(3/19/2015) 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
(3/17/2015) 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.


Twins' Tommy Milone, Trevor May take hill Wednesday vs. Rays


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(3/11/2015) The Twins used two candidates for the fifth spot in the rotation during Wednesday's spring game against the Rays. Tommy Milone started Wednesday, and he was immediately followed by Trevor May.

Milone started the game with three scoreless innings. He allowed three hits and struck out three. He has now tossed five scoreless innings through two outings.

"I thought it was another good day," Molitor said of Milone's outing, per MLB.com. "He's using his fastball plenty for a guy throwing it 86-87 [mph]. His deception is good enough, and his command of his offspeed pitches so far in the first couple outings has been effective. He's jamming right-handers and getting them with changeups. So it was a good day, and he did a really nice job with baserunners, too."

May entered the game in the fourth inning. He allowed one run on two hits and one walk in two relief innings. He also struck out four batters. May, who dealt with an illness early in camp, made his first spring appearance Wednesday.

"It's always good to finally get out there on the field -- it's crazy that there were actual hitters and fielders," May said jokingly after the outing. "It felt good to get going. I felt good, I felt strong. It was weird coming from the 'pen so I tried to time it the best I could. But I think all considered, everything felt good coming out of my hand and I threw some good off-speed pitches."


Alex Meyer and Trevor May hope to return to Twins soon


by Shawn Krest | CBSSports.com
(3/7/2015) Alex Meyer missed a few days of camp with the Twins for personal reasons following the death of his grandfather. The righthander hopes to return to the mound on Monday for a game against the Pirates. 

Trevor May has missed time with flu-like symptoms. After a bullpen session on Friday, the righthander is aiming for a return on Wednesday. 


Twins' Trevor May throws 15-20 pitches Tuesday


by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(3/3/2015) Twins pitcher Trevor May (illness) said he was able to throw 15-to-20 pitches Tuesday without issue, the St. Paul Pioneer Press reports.

May plans to face hitters Wednesday to get back on schedule. He was one of five players sent home from Monday's workouts due to illness, but he was able to return one day later. May is competing for a rotation spot this spring.


Five Twins return for workouts on Tuesday


by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(3/3/2015) All five Twins players -- Byron Buxton, Trevor May, Oswaldo Arcia, Jordan Schafer and Kurt Suzuki -- that were sent home due to illness on Monday, returned to the clubhouse on Tuesday and rejoined the club for workouts, reports the Star Tribune.

Twins send five home due to illness before Monday workouts


by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(3/2/2015) Twins third baseman Trevor Plouffe (illness) was back at workouts Monday, but the Twins sent five other players home due to illness before Monday workouts began, the St. Paul Pioneer Press reports.

Pitcher Trevor May and outfielders Byron Buxton and Jordan Schafer missed a second straight day of workouts, while catcher Kurt Suzuki and outfielder Oswaldo Arcia also had to miss the Monday session.

The Twins begin exhibition season Wednesday with a game against the University of Minnesota.


Yoga has Twins' Trevor May 'much fresher than ever before'


by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(2/28/2015) Twins starting pitcher Trevor May has looked to improve flexibility coming into his competition for a rotation spot this spring by turning to yoga to help repeat his delivery, the Star Tribune reports.

"I’ve been doing yoga for 30 or 40 minutes every morning, and I’m much fresher than ever before," May said. "Every scouting report I’ve ever seen on myself says, 'Has trouble repeating his delivery.' Well, yoga is literally repeating moves, keeping your body under your control. I do the warrior pose, which is [the same as] striding and throwing a baseball. It has to help."

May initially struggled in his major-league debut last season, but he hopes the perseverance he showed and his improvements near the end of the season help set him apart in the battle for a rotation spot this spring.

"Obviously I don’t know exactly what the people who are making decisions are thinking, but showing I can be successful after having my face beat up for two months, showing I can work through it, it’s a trait you have to have," May said. "I take pride in the fact that I didn’t give up. I didn’t let it get me down."


Twins' Trevor May 'intriguing candidate' for rotation spot


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(2/10/2015) Twins pitcher Trevor May is an "intriguing candidate" for the rotation's fifth spot, but will have a tough time beating out veterans Tommy Milone and Mike Pelfrey, reports MLB.com. The 6-foot-5 right-hander says he's in the best shape of his life and is looking to build off a solid finish to last season.

In May's last start, against Detroit, he allowed three runs on five hits and a walk while fanning seven over six innings.

"Toward the end, I stayed taller and my stuff got better," said May, 25. "I got more swings and misses. The runs that were scoring were more in spurts. And the walks got better, too. I started pounding the zone better than I ever have."

May added he hopes the progress he showed "was enough to keep me in the conversation. But baseball is a business and some guys are on contracts. If you're going to throw as good as them and your stats are identical, they're going to get the job. But that's how it is and I know that. But my job doesn't change because of that. My job is to be in the best shape possible and compete for a spot."

May said he's willing to work out of the bullpen if he doesn't make the rotation.

by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(9/25/2014) Twins starting pitcher Trevor May posted a quality start but it wasn't enough in his final start of the season Thursday night against Detroit, dropping to 3-6 on the year. He allowed three runs on five hits and one walk while striking out seven over six innings of a 4-2 defeat.

May ends his 2014 season 7.88 ERA and a 1.77 WHIP over 45 2/3 innings of work.


Trevor May knocked around Saturday


by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com
(9/20/2014) Twins pitcher Trevor May got knocked around Saturday against the Indians.

May allowed seven runs on eight hits over 4 2/3 innings. He struck out three and walked two during the outing. May opened the game with a scoreless inning, but quickly got himself in trouble in the second. With two outs, and two men on base, May gave up a two-run triple against Mike Aviles. Michael Bourn would plate Aviles on a single. May would give up another run in the third on another run-scoring single. The fifth proved to be problematic as well. With two outs, and two men on base, May gave up a three-run shot to Yan Gomes. He was pulled from the game at that point. 

With the loss, May dropped to 3-5. He’ll take on the Tigers in his next start.


Trevor May strikes out 10 in first quality start


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(9/14/2014) The first quality start of a rocky rookie season for Twins right-hander Trevor May on Sunday against the White Sox was notable for another reason - he walked none and fanned 10 along the way.

May allowed three runs on five hits in six innings in raising his record to 3-4. His troubles began in the fourth, when he yielded RBI singles to Jose Abreu and Conor Gillaspie. He gave up a solo home run to Adrian Nieto in the fifth, but was able to maintain the lead.

His next start is slated for next weekend against Cleveland.


Trevor May a mess with runners on base


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(9/12/2014) Monumental struggles out of the stretch has prevented Twins rookie starter Trevor May from gaining success in the bigs, the Minneapolis Star Tribune has reported.

May has allowed 41 hits in 29 2/3 innings with 19 walks and 24 strikeouts and owns a terrible 8.38 ERA. Opposing hitters are batting .269 against him with the bases empty, but a ridiculous .479 with runners on base. He has just seven strikeouts in those situations.

An American League scout told the Star Tribune that May's "got the ammo. He needs to locate it. And his fastball is pretty flat." May has struggled to locate his fastball well enough to make his other pitches work.


Trevor May allows two runs in win vs. Indians


by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(9/9/2014) Twins pitcher Trevor May picked up a win Tuesday, giving up two earned runs on five hits and four walks in five innings while striking out three in his team's 4-3 victory over the Indians.

While plenty of runners reached base, May (2-4) was able to limit the damage to a pair of runs in the second inning that came on two outs, one a groundout and the other a sacrifice fly. While he's pitched better in his last two starts, the return to wildness isn't a good sign after he walked just two batters in his last three starts combined.

May owns a 8.38 ERA and 24:19 K:BB ratio in 29 innings. He's scheduled to face the White Sox Sunday.

by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com

May gave up five runs on 11 hits over 5 1/3 innings. He struck out four and did not issue any walks during the outing. The Tigers were able to take advantage of May putting guys on.

Martinez brought in the second run the following inning. May was able to toss a scoreless fourth inning, but gave up another run in the fifth, and surrendered two additional runs in the sixth.

Trevor May: 'There are definitely brighter days in the future'


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(8/13/2014) Twins rookie pitcher Trevor May made his second career appearance Tuesday against the Astros, but it was his first relief outing since his promotion from the minors. However, like his first career start, it was not a memorable evening for the right-handed pitcher. 

May allowed three runs (two earned) on three hits and two walks in 2 1/3 innings, while striking out two. He did, however, lower his ERA from 18.00 to 12.46.

"The first thing you have to do here is command your fastball," manager Ron Gardenhire said, per the Pioneer Press. "He's not commanding his fastball right now. You have to throw it in and out. Up to this point, he hasn't. When he gets his next start, hopefully he'll have figured something out."

May, who is scheduled to start Monday against the Royals, vows to improve.

"I know there are definitely brighter days in the future," he said. "I know the things I need to do -- all things I know how to do. I have to throw all my pitches for strikes. I know that I can do it. It hasn't shown in the last five innings, but it showed in the first 95 (at Rochester)."

by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(8/10/2014) Twins pitching prospect Trevor May had a rough major-league debut Saturday, giving up four earned runs on three hits and seven walks in two innings in his team's 9-4 loss to the A's.

May (0-1) had walked a career-low 3.5 batters per nine innings in the majors this season before dealing with control issues in his first big-league start. He walked three straight batters with two outs in the second inning before surrendering a two-run single and walking two more batters. He didn't come out for the third. The Twins haven't set a date for May's next start, but it could come Friday against the Royals if he isn't sent back down to work on his game.
