Remember Trevor May?

You probably should since the Twins pitcher, who tore his ulnar collateral ligament in spring training and underwent Tommy John surgery, figured to be a key member of a thin bullpen this season or a candidate to join the rotation.

Going forward, you can expect to hear more of May — directly from him, in fact. May started writing about his recovery and how he's coping with the injury for MLB Trade Rumors. His first entry was Thursday — describing how having to undergo Tommy John surgery is awful, but he's trying to make the most of the situation.

Writes May: "I can't live my dream on the field this year, but I can still live it off the field. … I'm a professional baseball player rehabbing his elbow, a partnered Twitch Streamer, a DJ, a Social Media connoisseur, an E-Sports Entrepreneur, a gaming tournament organizer and commentator, and obviously an exceptional writer."
