Trevor May: Calls end to career
May announced Monday during a stream on his personal Twitch account that he has retired from professional baseball, SNY.tv reports.
May, who turned 34 years old in September, still appeared to have something left in the tank after recording 21 saves while pitching to a 3.28 ERA and 1.37 WHIP over 46.2 innings with Oakland in 2023, but he'll choose to walk away from the game rather than pursuing a short-term deal with the Athletics or another club in free agency. Over parts of nine seasons in the majors with the Twins, Mets and Athletics, May notched 36 wins, 33 saves and 67 holds and accrued a 4.24 ERA across 450.1 career innings.... See More ... See Less

May has registered a save in eight of his last 11 trips to the mound as well and has worked his ERA down to 3.43 with his current strong stretch of pitching, his lowest figure in that category since after his first appearance of the season back on April 4....

Athletics' Trevor May: Cruises to 13th save
May struck out one in a perfect inning to earn the save in Tuesday's 5-4 win over the Royals.
May threw 14 pitches (eight strikes) to submit his second straight clean inning against the Royals. He's pitched three of the last four days, so it's possible he may not be available to close if Wednesday's day game presents a save opportunity. May is at a 4.37 ERA, 1.51 WHIP and 29:26 K:BB with 13 saves in 16 chances over 35 innings this season.

May (4-4) got the win against the Royals on Monday, firing a perfect ninth inning during which he recorded two strikeouts.
May was exceedingly sharp, pounding 12 of his 14 pitches in for strikes while disposing of the trio of Salvador Perez, MJ Melendez and Freddy Fermin. May was then rewarded for his impeccable work when Brent Rooker walked it off with a two-run home run in the bottom of the ninth, which allowed the veteran right-hander to even his won-loss mark on the season. May has now posted scoreless efforts in nine of his last 10 appearances and continues to see the bulk of the ninth-inning opportunities on the team.... See More ... See Less
Athletics' Trevor May: Records 12th save Wednesday
May recorded his 12th save in the Athletics' win over the Rangers on Wednesday, firing a scoreless ninth inning during which he allowed two hits and recorded a strikeout.
May got 10 of his 12 pitches in for strikes but still had to navigate some trouble of his own making before converting his sixth save opportunity since July 18. The right-hander also now has a seven-appearance scoreless streak, a stretch that's lowered his ERA from 5.32 to 4.02. While save chances can certainly be an infrequent occurrence in Oakland, May is unquestionably the top ninth-inning option for manager Mark Kotsay at the moment.... See More ... See Less
