Tough news for the Minnesota Twins Saturday with the announcement of Trevor May's season-ending injury.
May was diagnosed with a torn ulnar collateral ligament in his right elbow, likely meaning Tommy John surgery is necessary.
May was competing for a spot in the starting rotation and had just pitched a pretty solid 3 2/3 innings when the Twins beat team USA in a tune-up game for the World Baseball Classic. He suffered the torn ligament in that game.
The Twins say May will get a second opinion on Sunday, but the expectation is that he's done for the season.
With May out, the fifth spot in the rotation is now a competition between Tyler Duffey, Jose Berrios, Adalberto Mejia, Justin Haley and Ryan Vogelsong, according to Twins Daily.
