Rookie hurler also honored by IL

By Rochester Red Wings | June 2, 2014 11:33 AM ET

Rochester Red Wings pitcher Trevor May has been named the Batavia Downs Gaming and Racetrack Player of the Week for the period of May 26-June 1, and also named International League Pitcher of the Week for the same period.

Over a pair of starts last week, May went 2-0 without allowing an earned run over 12 innings of work, earning victories over Syracuse (Monday) and Gwinnett (Saturday).

Over his last four starts -- all of which have come at Frontier Field - May is 4-0 and hasn't allowed an earned run. The 26-inning streak without yielding an earned run has dropped his ERA from 4.97 on May 7 to 2.62 - 7th best in the IL. Over the 4-game win streak, he's allowed just one run on 16 hits and 11 walks while striking out 19.

More on May:
May, 24, was a 4th round selection of the Phillies in 2008. In 2011 he was Philadelphia's Minor League Pitcher of the Year, and each of the past two seasons he led the Double-A Eastern League in strikeouts. The Longview, Wash. native was traded to Minnesota prior to the 2013 season as part of the deal for Ben Revere.
