TREVOR MAY RUMORS & GOSSIP
With MLB All-Star balloting wrapping up Thursday at midnight, teams are making a last-minute push to get their players voted in. Teams are begging for votes on social media, creating t-shirts and some are going the extra mile by making unique campaign videos. Twins pitcher Trevor May has taken on the role of personal spokesperson for his teammate Brian Dozier, who doesn't rank among...
It's funny how drastic and immediate changes can be from the Minors to the Majors. Thinking back on Trevor May who was profiled a few weeks back - the guy was walking everyone in the Minors and in his short stint in the Majors last year, to become top-25 in K:BB ratio.
But that took some seasoning. We're seeing something even drastic-er and immediate-er with what's going on...
CHC (35-30): LHP Jon Lester (4-5, 3.99)
MIN (37-30): RHP Trevor May (4-5, 4.26)
First pitch: 1:10pmCT
Some games, like Thursday’s, you feel like you mighta, coulda, shoulda, probably...
I've used a similar open before, so rounding to the point - there's a ton of players in baseball... It's why fantasy baseball rules the land - there's no end to how deep it goes (that's what she said!). You can play 10 team, 12 team RCL, AL and NL only, and I'm hoping to start up a 30 teamer next year. The possibilities are endless!
And even within the abyss of players that...
Trevor May – May debuted in Minnesota last season starting nine games to the tune of a 7.88 ERA. His FIP and xFIP were in the middle- and high-4s thanks to a ton of home runs and walks, which had been problematic to some degree in the minors. This year he’s already pitched more innings than in ’14, and he’s improved his ERA to 5.07 but more importantly his FIP and xFIP are...
Matt Harvery highlights a fairly weak day of pitching this Friday, with just nine of the day’s 30 options rating average or better. Trevor Bauer will travel to Seattle, which is a game in which I’d start him in all formats despite the rankings’ pessimism. Remember, they’re based on Steamer ROS projections and Steamer says Bauer still has a ways to go (4.38 ROS ERA).
The Minnesota Twins won once again yesterday 7-2 against the Boston Red Sox. The win came at Target Field after the Twins went 4-1 on a short 5 game road trip. They swept the mid-week two game series against the Pittsburgh Pirates and then took two of three against the reeling Chicago White Sox. The Twins are now an American League best 16-6 in May and have passed the Detroit Tigers...
Happy Memorial Day weekend to all our dedicated readers! Today we kick off the holiday weekend with some pretty outstanding pitching matchups. Check ’em out:
Cole Hamels (PHI) vs. Stephen Strasburg (WAS)
4:05 p.m. ET
Both of these pitchers are probably at least a little disappointed in how their seasons have gone to date. Well, in the case of Hamels that disappointment...
The battle for the fifth spot in Minnesota’s starting rotation is now over, as Tommy Milone was officially named a starter by manager Paul Molitor. Milone has had respectable Spring Training, posting a 4.50 ERA in 14 innings pitched up to this point. He will join Phil Hughes, Ricky Nolasco, Ervin Santana, and Kyle Gibson on the Twins’ starting staff.
The announcement didn’t...

When Trevor May got the call-up for the Twins, I was excited to watch his Major League debut against the A’s on Saturday because I love pitchers who have the raw ingredients to significantly outperform their current fantasy value. Prior to 2013 May was always able to miss bats (career...
