Mets First Time Selection: Trevor May

The Met that will be the answer to a trivia question as he was the first free agent Steve Cohen and the new Mets regime signed has never made an All-Star game in his career.

The last three years for May have been quite good, pitching to an ERA of 3.19 over 113 innings with 153 strikeouts. He worked with Jeremy Hefner when both of them were in Minnesota together and it paid significant dividends.

Hefner helped May become a great reliever after he had Tommy John surgery. May was able to lean on Hefner about a lot of things from his TJS recovery to how he should approach hitters to be able to get to the next level as a reliever.

Now the two are back together in Queens and I believe the progress will only continue. The Mets need a guy or two step-up while Seth Lugo is recovering from bone chips being removed from his pitching elbow and Trevor May is the guy everyone is looking to.

If May continues to pitch as he has over the last three years, then he should be a good candidate to make his first All-Star team.

It’s not going to be easy as the National League has many good relievers including two on his own team in Lugo and Edwin Diaz, yes, I am a big believer in Edwin Diaz. Nevertheless, May has the makeup and the stuff to surprise some and make it to Atlanta this summer for the Mid-Summer Classic.
