TREVOR MAY NEWS

Links of the Day 7/25/14

Hello. Nice to see my post from yesterday was proven wrong within hours. Kendrys Morales was traded yesterday, causing that post to be wrong. What will it take to get Trevor May or Alex Meyer to the Majors? This is a sweet story about Anthony Rizzo.

The trade deadline is a week away, here are some Twins predictions

I wrote a little while back about Kurt Suzuki and how he was the perfect trade chip for the Twins. The trade deadline is fast approaching, and one would assume that his time with the Twins is drawing to a close. But who from the Twins will be leaving town at the end of the month and who will be saying with the Twins? Let’s look at some candidates and see what might happen with...

Bringing Your AAA Game - Trevor May & Robert Refsnyder

First, an update on some guys I have written about previously: Jimmy Nelson got the call (he had one spot start earlier this season) and struggled against the Cardinals.  He was hit with some very bad luck and walked 2 batters in only 4.1 innings.  He did strike out 5 and poor defense behind him gave him two unearned runs to go with 6 earned.  I think this was just a bump in...

Twins pitching prospect Meyer named to replace injured May for Futures Game

Twins pitching prospect Trevor May was a late addition to the 2014 Futures Game, as he became the third Minnesota minor leaguer to be named to the event. Now a calf injury means May is a late scratch for Sunday's game. In his place will be another Twins pitching prospect: right-hander Alex Meyer, who will represent Team USA. The news was announced on Twitter by the Futures Game...

Twins Wednesday: Hicks activated, optioned to Double-A

Aaron Hicks' roller coaster season continues. The Minnesota Twins activated Hicks (shoulder) from the 15-day disabled list and optioned him to Double-A New Britain, where he had been on his rehab assignment. Minnesota could have reinstated him on the 25-man roster or sent him to Triple-A Rochester, but the fact that he was sent to Double-A is a telling sign. Hicks batted just...

Twins farm system contains some notable players

While many baseball fans keep their primary focus on the major leagues, there are often plenty of young minor leaguers worthy of noting. That's especially true in the Twins organization, as Minnesota has a relatively deep farm system. Here's a midseason look at players to watch from each Twins minor league team.

A Look at the Ben Revere Conundrum

When the Phillies traded Vance Worley and Trevor May for Ben Revere before the 2013 season, Phillies fans believed they were getting their center fielder of the future. Though he didn't have power, Revere hit .294, had a .333 OBP and stole 40 bags for the Twins in 2012. Fast...

MLB Power Rankings – Week Three

This column written by Kyle Bliquez, a writer for Oregon Sports News This may be week three of the Major League Baseball season but this is week one of my official Power Rankings.  Parity exists in baseball more than any other sport.  Evidenced by successful teams struggling out of the gate, (most notably the World Champion Boston Red Sox) and subpar teams surprisingly competing...

Revere Looking Like a Real Steal

The question on every Phillies fans mind going into the 2012 offseason was: Who would play center field? That question was answered on December 6, 2012. The first tweets started rolling in around noon stating the Phillies got their man. Vance Worley and top prospect Trevor May were dealt to the Minnesota Twins for 24-year-old Ben Revere. Most Phillies fans were upset. Worley, in...

Twins' spring training home getting facelift

FORT MYERS, Fla. -- The Minnesota Twins are in the middle of two rebuilding projects.

Phillies sign outfielder Ben Revere to one-year contract

The Philadelphia Phillies traded for outfielder Ben Revere last off season in exchange for Vance Worley and Trevor May. Revere was a young, inexperienced, but excellent defensive outfielder. The Phillies were hoping he'd develop into the team's center fielder for years to come.  Revere got off to a slow start offensively, but was one of the team's better hitters when...

Ryan revisits old strategy in new Twins rebuilding program

The Minnesota Twins last won the World Series in 1991. In 1992, they fielded a very competitive team, but were undone by the loss of ace pitcher Jack Morris, and one bad pitch to Oakland Athletics reserve outfielder Eric Fox. In 1993, the Twins thought they would again be right in the mix, signing hometown hero Dave Winfield to anchor a lineup that included Kirby Puckett, Chuck Knoblauch...

Phillies Nation Player Review: Ben Revere

(AP) No matter what Charlie Manuel tried having you believe at the end of the 2012 season, it was clear to Phillies analysts and fans alike that the team needed a new leadoff hitter. Jimmy Rollins was coming off one of the worst seasons of his career hitting .250 with an OBP of .316, his lowest OBP since 2009. Enter Ben Revere. On December 6, 2012, Revere was traded to the Phillies...

This is the face of a man who will love the Twin Cities

In yesterday’s satirical (Sorry, the Twins did not go out and acquire 15 players) post, I led with a fake news conference in which the Twins signed Bronson Arroyo. Well, every player I mentioned has been mentioned in the post has been mentioned as a free agent or trade target for the Twins somewhere. Still, Bronson Arroyo is my favorite, my preferred free agent for the Twins to...
