New Britain (AA – Eastern League) right-handed pitcher Trevor May is the Twins Minor League Player of the Week. The 23 year-old 6’5″ May tossed 7.2 scoreless innings allowing just four hits while striking out nine Erie batters on June 18. May has a 3.56 ERA over 14 starts and a 1.80 ERA (20.0 IP, 4 ER) over his last three starts for the Rock Cats. His fastball is in the 92-94 range with heavy sink, and his secondary pitches, curve and a straight change are almost ready. In his sixth season of pro ball, May already has over 600 innings of minor league ball under his belt. His career SO/9 rate is 10.8 but his BB/9 of 4.7 is what is holding him back from moving up the ladder. May was acquired by the Twins this past offseason from the Phillies along with Vance Worley for Ben Revere.
Previous winners this season include (in order): P Tyler Duffey, INF Miguel Sano, OF Adam Brett Walker, INF Jorge Polanco, P Kyle Gibson, INF Chris Colabello, P Logan Darnell, P Taylor Rogers, P Andrew Albers and OF Byron Buxton.
