The Minnesota Twins will enter the regular season without right-hander Trevor May, who has a torn ulnar collateral ligament, the team announced.

May suffered the injury pitching against Team USA on Wednesday.

The 27-year-old underwent an MRI on Friday, and said it appeared conclusive the injury was serious, but he'll get a second opinion before deciding how to proceed.

He said he's open to modified Tommy John surgery or PRP injections, according to Mike Berardino of the Pioneer Press, but if they don't work out, he would undergo Tommy John surgery, which normally has more than a year of recovery time.

Sometimes you work and work, and life roudhouse kicks you in the face anyways.

Good thing my jaw is made of titanium.

May, who pitched exclusively out of the bullpen last season, has made two spring starts for the Twins, posting a 2.25 ERA during four innings of work.

Over the course of his three-year career, all with the Twins, he owns a 13-17 record with a 5.14 ERA during 102 appearances - 25 of which have been starts.
