MINNEAPOLIS - The Minnesota Twins moved to shore up their suddenly trade-shortened pitching staff by calling up Trevor May from Triple-A Rochester.
The right-handed May missed the entire 2017 season recovering from “Tommy John” surgery on his right elbow after being diagnosed with a torn ulnar collateral ligament. May completed his rehab with Rochester, appearing in 13 games (4 starts) for the Red Wings, going 0-4 with a 4.00 ERA (27.0 IP, 12 ER), 16 walks and 25 strikeouts.
May is a veteran major leaguer, pitching parts of three seasons for the Twins from 2014-16. His record with the big club is 13-17 with a 5.14 ERA over 203 innings pitched in both starting and long relief roles. He takes the 25-man roster spot vacated by right-handed pitcher Lance Lynn, who was traded to the New York Yankees on Monday.
