RotoWire's Preseason Outlooks
May appeared to finally turn the corner last season and learned how to get out major league hitters, but it's not clear if his future is as a starter or reliever. May was called up in April with an opening in the rotation and struggled initially with a 5.07 ERA in his first nine starts. He then rebounded with a 3.23 ERA and a 30:9 K:BB in 30.2 innings. However, May was the odd man out when Ervin Santana returned from an 80-game suspension and May was moved to the bullpen. He thrived in relief by posting a 2.87 ERA and 37:8 K:BB ratio in 31.1 innings, becoming the primary setup man late in the season. May has a strong 8.6 K/9, good control (2.0 BB/9) and decent velocity (92.9 mph average fastball), so he could thrive in either role and could be a sleeper if moved back to the rotation.
May has become one of the top starting pitching prospects for the Twins after a strong season at Triple-A. He was called up in August and hit hard in his first four starts, giving up 22 earned runs in 19 innings. The right-hander calmed down a bit thereafter with quality starts in two of his last three outings, but still had an ugly 7.88 ERA with the big club. Despite his struggles in the majors, he maintained his strong strikeout rate (8.7 K/9) from the minors. May needs to reduce his walks, but his strikeout rate could win him a spot in the major league bullpen next spring. He'll more likely begin the season at Triple-A, but is a candidate to join the Twins' rotation early in the season.
May didn't show much improvement in his second full season at Double-A as he again had a strong strikeout rate (9.5 K/9) with shaky control (4.0 BB/9). His walk rate improved slightly and scouts say he improved his offspeed pitches, notably his changeup. And he did finish the season strong with a 20:2 K:BB ratio in his last three starts and had an impressive showing in the Arizona Fall League (3.21 ERA and 12:4 K:BB ratio in 14 innings). While his second season at Double-A may have dulled his prospect status, he still has a high strikeout rate that the organization lacks. He'll likely begin the season at Triple-A and he could quickly climb to the majors if he walks fewer batters.
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.
