Trevor May

A season ago, Trevor May made his major league debut with the Twins. Being the bigger draw, and only remaining piece of the trade that sent Ben Revere to the Philadelphia Phillies, May is a part of the Twins long term plans. Projecting as a middle-of-the-rotation type starter, May showed promise as the season came to a close. Despite struggling with command and getting batters out in his first few starts, he seemed to put things together as the season drew to a close. What’s working against May most may be positioning. Both Meyer and Milone seem to be more logical options for the 5th spot, and May could slot into the former long relief and spot start role once occupied by Anthony Swarzak. I would bet against May being logically considered for the starting rotation.
