Tom Powers: Minnesota Twins may have hardest-throwing deejay in baseball

Not only was Count Matchuki a better DJ…he had a much better pitcher’s name!

By night, in the offseason, he is Mazr the deejay, standing in front of the microphones in the clubs of Seattle. Come baseball season, he is Trevor May, pitching prospect extraordinaire for the Minnesota Twins. He is a hard-throwing right-hander who walks to the mound with just one intention: strike out the hitter.

“That’s kind of my thing,” he said. “It’s like in high school where you try to strike everybody out.”

...After his workout at Hammond Stadium, May planned to head back to his room and morph back into Mazr.

“I’ll be out of here about 12:30 today and I’ll have 10 hours before I’m in bed, so there’s not much to do,” he said. “I have been producing a little bit down here because it is fun. I’ve got my computer with me. It’s just off-the-field stuff. I don’t do it much doing the season.

“In the offseason I work with a group of guys that put on events. They do a monthly thing and I help them out when I’m home. I mix on turntables and play, opening for bigger guys.”

It’s a hobby that emanated from offseason boredom.

“I play electronic music, house,” he said. “I’ve always really liked house. We get bored at the end of the season. I saw a little toy, a turntable thing. I mess around with it. In the offseason you have so much free time. I got more and more into it, and I met some guys in Philly who taught me some stuff.”

Considering it's house music, that makes all sorts of sense.

His interest in DJ'ing is inversely proportional to his prospect rankings, which is exactly what I would expect.

Soo... he's kind of a thoughtless meathead? Got it.

“I play electronic music, house,” he said. “I’ve always really liked house...."

When the Twins visit Seattle and assuming May is on the parent club, perhaps he can spin Morse's walk-up music.
