Prospect Note: Trevor May, RHP, Minnesota Twins

Minnesota Twins pitching prospect Trevor May returned to action on Saturday, throwing three innings for Triple-A Rochester. He allowed three hits, one walk, and one run, while fanning three in a 47-pitch outing. May had been on the disabled list since late June due to a strained right calf, but showed no ill effects yesterday. The goal now is to get his stamina and pitch counts built back up after the layoff.

Overall, May now has a 2.94 ERA in 82.2 innings for the Red Wings, allowing 62 hits with an 84/32 K/BB ratio and an 8-5 record. He had originally been selected to pitch in last week's Futures Game, but the calf injury put those plans on hold.

May was drafted by the Philadelphia Phillies in the fourth round in 2008, from high school in Kelso, Washington. The Twins acquired him in the December 2012 Ben Revere trade. He posted a 4.51 ERA with a 159/67 K/BB in 152 innings for Double-A New Britain last year, but this season he has shown better command with obviously positive results. He features a 92-95 MPH fastball and has made good progress refining his curveball, slider, and changeup.

Calf problem this year aside, he's been extremely durable, averaging 150 innings each season from 2011 through 2013 without trouble or loss of stuff. If he maintains the improved command I think he can be a number three starter. Assuming no further health setbacks, we will probably see him in Minnesota in August or September.
