Dustin May
21-Year-Old PitcherRP
Los Angeles Dodgers AA
2019 Fantasy Outlook
If May can improve his secondary pitches, he would have No. 2 starter upside. Considering he is entering his age-21 season, we certainly can't rule out that possibility. A lean 6-foot-6, 180-pound righty, May has steadily increased his fastball velocity, and that pitch is now a mid-90s worm-killing monster (GB% around 55%), which gives his repertoire an excellent base. He has two decent secondary offerings in his curveball and cutter, but both pitches still need a good deal of refinement. His control was excellent (4.2 BB%) in 17 starts at High-A, and while that mark almost doubled after a promotion to Double-A (8.3 BB%), he comfortably projects to have at least 50-grade command/control in the majors. May should return to Double-A to start the year, but could spend most of 2019 at Triple-A. If he improves those two secondary offerings, his stock will skyrocket. If not, he could be a groundball-heavy No. 4 starter or power reliever. Read Past Outlooks

Beginning year at Double-A
PLos Angeles Dodgers  AA
April 1, 2019
May will open the season at Double-A Tulsa, J.P. Hoornstra of the Los Angeles Daily News reports.
ANALYSIS
May's strong showing in six Double-A starts in 2018 along with an excellent spring fueled speculation he might make the jump to Triple-A Oklahoma City to begin the campaign. Instead, he'll be booked for a return trip to Tulsa, but he shouldn't remain there for long if he's able to avoid the control issues that occasionally cropped up in his brief stint with the affiliate a season ago.

2017 Fantasy Outlook
A tall, lanky right-hander boasting an impressive mid-90s fastball with sink, May showed unexpectedly stellar command in 30.1 innings in the Arizona League following the 2016 draft. The teenager posted a 34:4 K:BB over that span, did not allow a single home run and ended up with a 3.86 ERA in his first taste of the minors. At 6-foot-6, there are some concerns about his ability to repeat his delivery, though May did not have any issues to begin his professional career. It is just as likely that May ends up in the bullpen, but for now he will remain a starter. The development of a third pitch will be key in his growth. The Dodgers could decide to be bullish on May and start him at Low-A Great Lakes to begin the 2017 campaign.
