The Minnesota Twins will call up pitching prospect Trevor May from AAA Rochester on Saturday. May will make his major league debut against the Oakland Athletics.
May is the organization's 8th-ranked prospect, according to Baseball America. The 24-year-old right-hander was a fourth-round pick in the 2008 draft.
In 95.1 innings at AAA this year, May is 8-6 with a 2.93 ERA. He's struck out 8.59 batters per nine innings, and his 91 total strikeouts are the second most on staff.
Minnesota is 51-62 and in last place in the AL Central. Earlier this year, Baseball Prospectus ranked the Twins as the best farm system in baseball.
