Professional career[edit]

Prior to the 2011 season, May was the Phillies best prospect according to Baseball America[6] That season, while pitching for the Clearwater Threshers, he went 10-8 with a 3.63 earned run average and 208 strikeouts in 151 innings. After the season he won the Paul Owens Award, which is awarded to the Phillies best minor league pitcher.[7]

Prior to the 2012 season, May was the Phillies' best prospect according to Baseball America.[8] He was ranked 69th in all of baseball.[9]

On December 6, 2012 he was traded, along with Vance Worley, to the Minnesota Twins for Ben Revere.[10] May was named to the 2014 All-Star Futures Game, but withdrew due to injury.[11]

May made his major league debut on August 9, 2014, against the Oakland Athletics. He had been pitching well for the Rochester Red Wings of the Class AAA International League, but lasted only two innings, throwing 28 of 63 pitches for strikes, walking seven, allowing four earned runs, and not striking out a batter.[12] May got his first major league win on September 3, 2014 as the Twins beat the Chicago White Sox at home, 11-4.
