Trevor May: Past News Updates ( ▲ View most recent update )
RotoWire's Preseason Outlooks
May opened last season as the Phillies' top prospect, but he is unlikely to top any lists this offseason. May's strikeout rate dipped with the move to Double-A last season, but it remained strong at 9.1 K/9. His walk rate rose and continues to be the biggest issue for May to address. He will also have to do a better job of keeping the ball in the yard after allowing 22 home runs last year. May's ceiling remains high, but there is still a lot of work for him to do. He'll get an opportunity to continue his advancement with the Twins after being sent Minnesota as part of the Ben Revere trade in December.
May's elite 12.12 K/9IP ratio in 2011 had him topping just about every Phillies prospect list this offseason. His 4.06 BB/9IP is a bit of a concern but it was an improvement from his control problems at High-A in 2011. If May continues to make progress with his control, he has front of the rotation potential. He will open this season with Double-A Reading, but may not see time in Philly until 2013 at the earliest.
May began last season at High-A Clearwater but a 90:61 K:BB ratio forced the Phillies to move him back a level to work on his control. May made some adjustments and went 7-3 with a 2.91 ERA and a 92:20 K:BB ratio in 65 innings at Low-A Lakewood after his demotion. He's an intriguing prospect and will get another shot at moving up to High-A ball again next year. If he can continue to maintain the control he showed at Lakewood the Phillies will have a special pitcher on their hands.
The Phillies selected May out of high school in the fourth round of the 2008 draft. May's 90-95 mph fastball is an impressive offering, and he mixes it with a solid curveball and an adequate changeup. He spent last season at Single-A Lakewood and posted a 95:43 K:BB ratio in 77.1 innings as a starter. His strong K/9 ratio makes him an intriguing prospect but the high walk rate will need to be improved upon.
