What is there to say about Trevor May other than he’s ready for the show? There were plenty of early season doubters, but May has done everything in his power to silence them. Simply put, he has been one of the best pitchers in the Twins system this year, posting 9.15 K/9 against 3.5 BB/9. Opponents are hitting a miniscule .203 off the right hander, and that includes a .266 BABIP. May’s other peripherals look great, as well. His actual ERA is an impressive 2.94, which is backed up by his 3.17 FIP. May’s next start comes on Saturday against Norfolk, meaning that he’ll be due to pitch again when the Twins’ currently vacant number five slot is up. If he pitches well, May could be in Minneapolis as early as next week.
