    Trevor May is on the old side for a future player. He will turn 25 later this season. I think he would be the oldest player on the US team.

    On the world team, Kennys Vargas is old also. Only Daniel Alvarez is older and he recently came to the US from Cuba. He has been in the minors less than a year.

    The best players are in the majors at 24. They aren't hoping for a spot in the future's game.

    He could learn this phrase in other languages and be good:

    I'm hopin' May stays in the Twin Cities after the game (on the MLB roster).

    PS - TK will be happy, when he was filling in for Bert, he said he was hoping May and/or Meyer would be on his team. If May is ready, TK will know and advise the team.

    This is a great point, it is really helpful to the Twins to have TK and Bert managing, both can help provide insight to their players. Hopefully TK sees what he likes in May and he just stays in Minnesota after the Future's Game.

    Yeah, I'd say that while it's a nice honor, May would rather be in Gonzalez's shoes.

    Looks like the Twins PR department gets a nice bone thrown their way....and as others have written, it does now provide a "clear path" to the majors for May if the Twins decide to just keep him up.
