May exited Saturday's start against the Milwaukee Brewers on Saturday in the second inning after experiencing obvious discomfort in his throwing arm, signaling to his dugout that he needed a trainer after throwing a pitch.
He was placed on the 10-day injured list on Sunday with forearm soreness.
In five starts this season, May was 1-1 with an earned run average of 2.74 and a 0.957 WHIP over 23.0 innings pitched.
A third-round pick in the 2016 MLB Amateur Draft, May was in his third big-league campaign.
