Trevor May struck out three batters in a clean ninth inning to secure the win in a non-save situation against the White Sox on Wednesday.
May has an elite 14.7 K/9 ratio, but an ugly 4.74 ERA to go along with it. A .375 BABIP suggests he's been a bit unlucky in 2020.
Trevor May (back) left the game in the seventh inning on Sunday. He is being listed as day-to-day with back cramps. The Twins will update his status on Monday.
May has a 11.12 ERA since August 24th. Over that span he has allowed seven runs in five and two thirds innings pitched. However, during that time, he has 13 strikeouts, one walk and a 0.86 xFIP. Perhaps the missing piece to the puzzle is May's 93.2 MPH exit velocity compared to his 88.7 MPH career average. May's recent troubles stem from his 60% HR/FB rate, which is five times higher than his career average. Until May can limit hard contact and home runs he will continue to underperform his xFIP and can remain on the Waiver Wire even in Holds leagues.

In 5 2/3 innings, May has pitched to a 1.59 ERA, a 0.88 WHIP, and a 15.9 K/9 ratio. Rodgers will get the majority of save chances, and Romo is likely next in line. But rotisserie owners looking to pad their stats a bit might want to consider May an option.
